The Whistler Calvados Cask Finish Irish Whiskey

You don't see many spirits finished in Calvados, a French apple brandy. This one opens with a vanilla aroma and cinnamon spice up front that reads like Red Hots candies and cinnamon gum. The midpalate shows sarsaparilla, leading into cayenne heat on the exhale. A splash of water and little time to open up yields a faint apple hint and amps up the cinnamon spice, creating an end result that suggests candied apple, with a drying finish. Limited release.
