Gordon & MacPhail (distilled at Brora), 24 year old, 1982 vintage, 43%

Price: $250.00 Issue: Winter 2007 Reviewer: John Hansell

Quite fresh for 24 years old. Invigorating notes of brine, spice (especially pepper and mustard seed), tropical fruit, and vanilla malt, and an appetizing, lingering brine finish. Well-rounded, and a nice balance between youthful zing and maturity. My only wish is to see this bottled at a higher strength and not chill-filtered
