Duncan Taylor Dimensions Range (distilled at Tormore) 2005, 52.1%

Price: $78 Issue: Winter 2013 Reviewer: Dave Broom

Is this bottled by Duncan Taylor or Ben & Jerry's? Ludicrous amounts of white/milk chocolate and macadamia nut, with green fennel underneath. With water, it opens into dark chocolate chunks (see what I mean?) and cappuccino. One sip makes you worry you're putting on weight, such is the thickness of its impact. Okay, it's more about the wood rather than the distillery, but you can't deny that it puts a smile on your face. Completely bonkers and somehow wonderful. £49
