Exclusive Malts (distilled at Benrinnes) 20 year old, 52.7%

Price: $170 Issue: Fall 2017 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

Distilled in October 1995 and aged in refill hogshead #8937. Slightly earthy on the early nose, with allspice, vanilla, then creamy toffee and caramel notes emerge. Big, boiled sweet notes on the full palate: nutmeg, soft toffee, and aniseed. Long and drying in the finish, with chili spice. (261 bottles)
