Duncan Taylor (distilled at Cameronbridge), Cask #3583, 28 year old, 54.4%

Price: $125 Issue: Fall 2008 Reviewer: John Hansell

Its best attributes are vanilla, toasted coconut, and tropical fruit, but the rest of this grain whisky is a bit of a disappointment. It is thin, and at times harsh. A paint thinner component is evident (especially on the nose), along with more wood on the finish than this thin body can handle. Two Carsebridge grain Scotch whiskies from Duncan Taylor which I have tasted recently were much better: richer and creamier, and with more balance.
