Gordon & MacPhail Cask Strength 1995 (distilled at Aberfeldy), 55.8%

Price: $95 Issue: Winter 2014 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

This expression from Aberfeldy was distilled in April 1995 and bottled in January 2014 after maturation in refill, remade sherry hogsheads (casks #2,488, 2,489, and 2,491). The nose is floral, with ginger and developing milk chocolate. Progressively sweeter, with slight sherry and vanilla notes. The palate is silky and sweet, with banoffee pie, peaches, and spicy oak. The finish is long, with cocoa powder and more spiced oak.£60
