Duncan Taylor (distilled at Auchentoshan) 13 year old 1998, 46%

Price: $66 Issue: Summer 2012 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

Another recent addition to Aberdeenshire bottler Duncan Taylor's Dimensions range, launched late last year. The nose is very fruity, with sliced peaches and apricots, plus a porridge-like background note. Relatively full bodied and malty, with intense fruit notes, then dark spices appear. The finish is medium in length, spicy with aniseed balls, then a lingering creaminess at the very end. £42
