Bladnoch 1993, Gordon & MacPhail Connoisseurs' Choice range, 43%

Price: $70.00 Issue: Summer 2011 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

This most recent Connoisseurs' Choice bottling from Scotland's southernmost distillery has been matured in refill sherry hogsheads. The nose is pleasing and light, mildly herbal, with cut grass, citrus fruits, and a hint of malt. Medium-bodied, sweet and fruity in the mouth, with peaches, nuts, and discreet spice. Relatively lengthy in the creamy finish. Very drinkable and quite substantial.
