    Clonakilty Crossroads Imperial Stout Cask Finish, Batch Crsrds # 001, 57.2% 57.2% alc. Original bottling. Maturation: Bourbon barrels, maturing in Imperial Stout barrels from Crossroads
    Type: single malt whisky

    Nose: restrained with some cereal aromas. I notice rye bread, roasted malt follows. In addition, some light dark chocolate with almond slivers. In addition, a mixture of citrus fruits, grapes and vanilla, with mild spices in the background. The alcohol is well integrated, but also cannot completely hide.

    Palate: strong start. The citrus fruits come with a lot of strength and sweetness, along with dark pastries and lots of spices. Nutmeg, cloves, a hint of cinnamon and ginger. Also chilli in dark chocolate and whole peppercorns. The grapes are also there for a moment, but they almost go under. Finish: Very long and very warming, still very spicy with a lot of oak, grapes and gooseberries, cocoa and white coffee.
    Conclusion: A lot of post-maturation in beer barrels has failed me so far, this one not. The powerful start in barrel strength looks chaotic on the palate for a moment, but is really nice. I recommend avoiding water, treat yourself to the full broadside. 85/100 points (2021)
