Cadenhead's (distilled at Glentauchers) 1989, 55.2%

Price: $275 Issue: Winter 2015 Reviewer: Dave Broom

This example of the little-seen Glentauchers immediately shows classic distillery character, which is in the green grassy camp. This verdant aspect continues into fresh fruit salad, with enough ripeness to indicate the time spent in cask. This mix of freshness and weight extends onto the tongue, although the impact fades soon after a light spicy tingle on the back palate. I'd happily have a couple.
