Gordon & MacPhail (distilled at Glentauchers), 14 year old, 43%

Price: $65.00 Issue: Winter 2005 Reviewer: John Hansell

Fairly straight-forward but pleasing nonetheless. Creamy on the nose and palate. Nicely malty, too, with interwoven notes of vanilla, caramel custard, and hazelnut, offset nicely by dry oak spices and a hint of peat. A calming whisky best enjoyed after a very stressful day.
