Duncan Taylor (distilled at Clynelish) 1990, 53.2%

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

Duncan Taylor's latest cask strength, single cask release from the Sutherland distillery of Clynelish is 21 years old. It is sweet on the nose, with hand-rolling tobacco, milk chocolate, overripe grapes, and vanilla. Becoming saltier and drier. Nutty and mildly maritime on the palate, with lots of spice, steadily drying. Spice and ginger in the lengthy, oily finish. £80
