This 12-year-old cask-strength whiskey offers chocolate and vanilla aromas. The drying, numbingly hot palate opens with fiery cayenne and clove, yielding a Mexican chocolate-like effect. Balanced with water, the whiskey evolves into an oakier dark chocolate profile, lightened with almond, ginger and white pepper. Kara Newman
