Dewar's 18 year old The Vintage, 40%

Price: $80 Issue: Spring 2018 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Vanilla laced with spice, fondant icing, grapefruit peel, and lime zest leave the vanilla and floral notes lower down the pecking order. In the mouth, grapefruit and orange dominate the vanilla, yet the mouthfeel is thinner and the acidity tips toward the taste of bitter orange seeds. A lingering bitter orange finish.
