Clan Denny (distilled at Girvan) 1992 21 year old HH9451, 59.6%

Price: $108 Issue: Fall 2014 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

A sweet, aromatic nose, with fresh cream, flaked almonds, macaroons, pomegranate juice, and a veneer of vanilla from this refill barrel. The palate starts warm and sweet, then revs up to full power; light butterscotch, cotton candy, clementine, Toledo marzipan, and corn kernels, with a hint of fresh green salad leaves. The short finish picks over corn, cake mix, and cream soda. Power, but not enough finesse from the wood here.£64
