Cadenhead's (distilled at Glenlivet) 12 year old, 60.5%

Price: $98 Issue: Spring 2002 Reviewer: John Hansell

Amber gold color. Rather sweet aroma and flavors of caramel, light toffee, almonds, and vanilla. A background note of fruit (lemon? ripe cherries?) contributes to its complexity. Its body is somewhat rich and chewy. A dryness on the finish keeps the sweetness of the whisky in check.
