Duncan Taylor 10 year old Dimensions Cask Strength 2008 (distilled at Aultmore), 53%

Price: $70 Issue: Winter 2019 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

A rich, fruity nose of baked apple, fruitcake, sliced almond, honey, and white pepper. At cask strength this is quite a bumpy ride, with warm apple, sultana, and caramel revving up to a jagged peak of ginger, pepper, and clove. When your taste buds emerge on the other side, it settles into a more pleasing caramel and toffee sweetness. Perfect for armchair mountaineers.
