Gordon & MacPhail Connoisseurs Choice 1999 (Ledaig, distilled at Tobermory), 46%

Price: $78 Issue: Fall 2016 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

This peated expression from Tobermory distillery has been aged in refill, remade hogsheads. The nose offers earthy peat, citrus fruit, vanilla, and smoked haddock in butter. Big, sweet peat notes on the peppery palate, with marshmallows and lively spices. The spices linger to the close, with peat embers and a hint of brine on the lips. £60
