Gordon & MacPhail (distilled at Arran) 2006, 46%

Price: $45 Issue: Fall 2015 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

Bottled in 2015, this expression from Arran distillery was matured in first-fill bourbon barrels. Ripe apple and tinned peaches on the early nose, icing sugar, a hint of mint, and soft toffee. Lively spices and pear drops on the palate, with vanilla and cocoa. The finish is medium in length, with a twist of lemon and cocoa powder.
