Duncan Taylor Rare Auld Grain (distilled at Strathclyde) 1990 28 year old, 51.2%

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

Baked lemons, light caramel, throat lozenges, and a butteriness to the nose, the grain character complemented by sweetness and warmer fruits. Light red fruits, butterscotch, Scottish tablet, with a nippy herbal bite to the palate and a deep, persistent burn of cracked black pepper spiciness that glows long into the finish. Strathclyde showing lots of enjoyable distillery character here.
