Balvenie 1992 vintage, 49.8%

Price: $1,586 Issue: Spring 2019 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

Slightly oily on the nose, with old leather, ginger, and furniture polish. Ultimately, red berry notes. The palate is initially sweet and fruity, with polished oak, aniseed, and wood spices. The finish dries slowly with oak tannins, but a spicy fruit note never quite disappears. £1,200
