Innis & Gunn Connoisseur’s Oak Collection 2012 (Scotland)


This three-bottle gift box comes with a stemmed glass in the fourth compartment and makes an easy-to-wrap gift for the quality-beer fan. Scottish brewer Innis & Gunn specializes in strong, sweetly rich offerings aged for a brief period in wood for added nuances. The 2012 box contains the Original as well as Winter Treacle Porter (with an essence of molasses) and Highland Cask, the latter mellowed in wood that once contained single-malt whisky. I like the Highland Cask best, with its fruity core smoothed out by toffee and vanilla.
