Professor B’s June 7 Vintages Release Recommendations

wine

This 100 plus release contains several rose wines for patio sipping during the summer.

There is also a relatively large selection of Campania white wines that offers many fine selections.

The Irish whisky is certainly one of the highlights of the spirits selection, as is the eau-de-vie de Gewurztraminer by Mure, from Alsace.

Spirits

Small batch Irish Whiskey, Teeling
Creamy nougat, and raisin flavours followed by a silky texture, makes this spirit a unique and delicious after dinner selection.

Fortified wine

Dry Palomino Sherry, William and Humbert Collection, Jerez de la Frontera, Spain
Sherry, especially fino sherry, is an underestimated wine. It can go with marinated shellfish, fish, and ham. This dry sherry offers a slightly salty taste, green olive flavours, and bit of floral character. A fine wine at a fair cost.
