Cadenhead's Potter's Indian Corn 24 year old Bourbon Barrel, 56.5%

Price: $110 Issue: Summer 2015 Reviewer: Davin de Kergommeaux

Although much praised, Potter's was a mythical distillery. It had no still, but sold whisky purchased from others. This straightforward all-corn whisky shows dusty corncobs on the nose, with sweet and sour sauce, caramel, oak, cinnamon bark, and intriguing hints of pine needles. The palate is broader, beginning with a very sweet and zesty spicy rush, followed by sweet wood, a syrupy mouthfeel tasting of prune, dark ripe fruits, and sour citrus notes. (126 bottles; UK only)£75
