Master blender Stephanie Macleod is at it again with this sumptuous sipper, which is soft, sweet, and lovely. On the nose there’s apple pie, nutmeg, cinnamon stick, vanilla extract, and cookie dough wafting from the glass. There’s also a trace of earthiness, thanks to a clean grassy note and the slightest bit of salinity. The palate is well spiced, honeyed, and full of vanilla sweetness, with some espresso and black pepper. A delightfully rich finish offers up a mouthful of baked apples and lingering spice. —Julia Higgins
