Duncan Taylor (distilled at Blair Athol) 22 year old 1989, 50.5%

Price: $125.00 Issue: Summer 2012 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

New to Duncan Taylor's Dimensions range is this single cask (#2927), cask strength offering from Perthshire's Blair Athol distillery. Sweet and fruity on the nose, majoring in tinned pineapple in syrup. Toffee, nougat, and a hint of freshly-dug soil make up the supporting aromatic cast. Full bodied and initially as sweet in the mouth as it was on the nose, with vigorous spices, particularly nutmeg, then it begins to dry. The long finish is characterized by powdery cocoa and oak tannins. £80
