A.D. Rattray 22 year old (distilled at Littlemill, Cask #558), 49.2%

Price: $160 Issue: Fall 2014 Reviewer: Geoffrey Kleinman

A non-chill filtered, cask strength single malt from Littlemill, vintage 1991. Littlemill's sweet nose is inviting, with butter toffee, milk chocolate, dried apricot, and straw. On the palate, these notes are joined by a nice maltiness as well as a touch of salt. In the mid-palate we get a touch of spice (black pepper and cinnamon) and some citrus. The finish is medium-length and slightly acidic, a departure for an otherwise affable cask strength whisky. (Park Avenue Liquor only)
