Gordon & MacPhail ('Smith's Glenlivet'), 21 year old, 43%
Price: $125.00 ● Issue: Winter 2008 ● Reviewer: John Hansell
Well-rounded and pleasingly sweet, with ripe strawberry, raspberry, tropical fruit, graham cracker, white chocolate, and anise, all on a bed of toffee. Some charred oak on the finish. This whisky has a gentle, soothing persona which I think most people will enjoy (me included).
