  • Intro:

    10 years old and released by Stranahan's, this release is touted as their oldest to date and captures the premium angle of the American Single Malt market. Let's dive in.

  • Nose:

    Sweet and buttery, orange peel and toffee, honey and caramel with a dash of pepper. Complex, sweet and balanced but enticing.

  • Taste:

    Moderate mouthfeel on the palate. Sweet corn flakes, toffee, a touch of honey and light orange peel. Fig jam, steel cut oats, light butterscotch, a touch of pepper. Unique, and while the ABV could be boosted, there's plenty of flavor.

  • Finish:

    Short finish, but it's pleasant and sweet. Honey, almond, caramel and honey meet pepper, a touch of clove and some slate and cinnamon. Lovely and enjoyable even if it's not everlasting.

  • Overall:

    Overall, this release shows that complexity can be found in the absence of bruiser ABV's. It's unique, interesting and most of all: delicious - a great showing from Stranahan's.
