Cadenhead's Indian Corn 26 year old, 58.3%

Price: $160 Issue: Winter 2016 Reviewer: Davin de Kergommeaux

Like many older corn whiskies, this one unfolds slowly. Strong Cadbury caramel bar and slightly meaty, with sour fruits and cedar on the nose. Sweet and hot, with floral notes and initially a discordant touch of perfume. Pulling tannins provide structure for glowing pepper, sultanas, sweet spring flowers, some earthiness, and a touch of wet slate. Not as woody as most whiskies this age; a testament to long maturation in used barrels. (Cadenhead's exclusive, Great Britain and Europe)£128
