Chieftain's (distilled at Bruichladdich) 22 year old 1989, 51.4%

Price: $130 Issue: Summer 2012 Reviewer: John Hansell

A distinctive (and intriguing) Bruichladdich, with honeyed malt, vanilla pod, charcoal, exotic fruit, and dark chocolate bourbon balls, teased with suggestions of fennel and espresso bean. Tactile, leather finish. (A D&M Wines & Liquors exclusive.)
