Exclusive Blend 1993 23 year old, 50%

Price: $145 Issue: Summer 2017 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

You are missing a trick if you don't snap up these small batch blended malts when you see them. Savory beef juices, black fruits, particularly black currant, loose Keemun tea, and dense oak characteristics. Sweet baked orange with notable alcohols initially, then tangy with caramelized brown sugar, butterscotch, dark rum, Brazil nut, pepper, cacao, and black currant puree. With water, it tastes deliciously of chocolate. A serious heavyweight whisky.
