Gordon & MacPhail (distilled at Miltonduff) Cask No. 9461, 56.3%

Price: $97.00 Issue: Fall 2012 Reviewer: John Hansell

Turns quite murky with water, but don't let this scare you off. Fragrant and flowery on the nose. A sweet whisky with a honeyed malt and creamy vanilla foundation, a mélange of tropical fruit (mandarin, lime, pineapple), and soft oak on the finish. Pleasant enough, but I wish the flavors were crisper, cleaner, and more well-defined. (A Park Avenue Liquor exclusive.)
