Cadenhead's 11 year old (distilled at Bowmore), 57.5%

Price: $88 Issue: Winter 2013 Reviewer: Dave Broom

Light and very creamy, with very subtle smoke in the background, this is like eating a white chocolate ice cream while walking toward a distant beach barbecue. The palate is gentle and sweet with good, refreshing saline balance. Water brings out mint. It's just a little too tight and disconnected on the tongue.
