Duncan Taylor Octave The Huntly 1996 21 year old, 52.7%

Price: $170 Issue: Spring 2019 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Lush, soft summer fruits bathe the nose with green melon, kiwi, green apple, tart gooseberry, ladyfingers, and a not unpleasant plastic note, like toy building blocks or the glove compartment of a new car. Baked orange delivers sharp tart flavors, with allspice, barley sugar, and hard candies, later developing apple notes and settling into a creamy, fruity finish.
