Douglas Laing Provenance (distilled at Glen Garioch) 17 year old, 46%

Price: $92 Issue: Fall 2013 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

Distilled in September 1995 and matured for 17 years in a refill hogshead, this bottling of the Aberdeenshire malt Glen Garioch

offers a nose of fresh peaches and vanilla, followed by a sprinkling of chili powder, and even a suggestion of boiled ham. Voluptuous in the mouth, with summer fruits, toffee apples, and a significant amount of ginger. The finish

dries quite rapidly, with fruity spices. £60
