Duncan Taylor (distilled at Glenallachie) 6 year old, 52.8%

Price: $84 Issue: Fall 2015 Reviewer: Dave Broom

Another blast of new oak. Fat and creamy, with distinct charred elements along with stewing pineapple, banana fritters, white chocolate, suntan oil, and a melting bar of nut-filled milk chocolate. An instructive dram showing how maturity is very different from age. With water, some of the distillery finally pokes through. To be honest, it's slightly too much for me; like overdosing on cotton candy or sugar-topped donuts.£54
