Friday’s Pan: Duncan Taylor (Cameronbridge) 28 year old
Yes, I know. March is over, and with it, “Friday’s Pans”. But I have one more pan before moving on to a happier review next Friday.
Duncan Taylor (distilled at Cameronbridge), Cask #3583, 28 year old, 54.4%, $125
Its best attributes are vanilla, toasted coconut, and tropical fruit. But the rest of this grain whisky is a bit of a disappointment. It is thin and, at times, harsh. A paint thinner component is evident (especially on the nose), along with more wood on the finish that this thin body can handle. Two Carsebridge grain Scotch whiskies from DT which I have tasted recently were much better—richer and creamier, and with more balance.
