Bottler: Master of Malt/The Three Drinkers.
Score: 91 points
This Master of Malt exclusive was selected by Colin Hampden-White, Helena Nicklin, and Aidy Smith of Amazon Prime’s “The Three Drinkers,” and is a 17-year-old blended malt. The nose has notes of caramel candy, oak tannins, black cherries, toffee, dark chocolate, and a slightly dusty character with a hint of old books. The spices build up slowly on the palate and reach a good peak with white pepper, allspice, and cardamom notes along with a hint of Christmas cake in the background and a touch of black cherries that develops late and lasts through the finish.
