Duncan Taylor (distilled at Invergordon), 40 year old, 1965 vintage, 49.7%

Price: $225 Issue: Summer 2007 Reviewer: John Hansell

A really stunning grain whisky. So rich for a grain whisky, with no excessive oak. Lipsmacking notes of vanilla cream, coconut custard, ripe banana, sticky toffee pudding, rhum agricole, and delicate honeycomb. The flavors are clean, deep, nicely integrated and complex. Single malt drinkers take note: this whisky will change your opinion of grain whisky forever! (A Park Avenue Liquor exclusive.)
