Duncan Taylor (distilled at Longmorn) 18 year old, 51.6%

Price: $190 Issue: Fall 2015 Reviewer: Dave Broom

Oak-driven, with cream and butterscotch dominating the nose initially. Then there's black cherry, and coriander seed frying in butter. The weighty distillate adds depth, but not specific flavors. The palate is all coconut cream, cream toffee, then Longmorn's cooked plum density comes in. I'd have preferred the oak to be scaled back, allowing the distillate to show, but if you're looking for a scotch made for bourbon lovers, then go no further.
