Exclusive Malts 1992 (distilled at Bladnoch), 48.1%

Price: $150 Issue: Fall 2014 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

Maturation for this 21 year old bottling of Bladnoch occurred in a refill American oak hogshead. Sweet orchard fruits, new-mown hay, malt, and soft toffee on the nose. The palate is initially fruity, with more malt, then nuttiness develops, with aniseed and black pepper. The finish is relatively short and tannic. (U.S. only)
