Gordon & MacPhail (distilled at Strathisla) 40 year old, 40%

Price: $200.00 Issue: Spring 2002 Reviewer: John Hansell

Deep amber color. Mature aroma-this is definitely an old whisky -with complex wood spices (cedar, vanilla, mint, caramel) and soft ripe fruit. Medium bodied and soft. Surprisingly balanced on the palate with an incredible depth and maturity. Its flavors are similar to its aroma, but a soft sweetness compliments the flavors and provides balance. Soothing, mellowing finish of considerable depth.
