Highland Journey, 46.2%

Price: $63 Issue: Winter 2014 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

This was inspired by Stewart Laing's childhood journeys by steam locomotive from Glasgow to Speyside with his father. Hunter Laing's blended malt includes contributions from Blair Athol, Teaninich, and Clynelish and raises toffee sauce, dried banana chips, and spring foliage, with a fringe of fresh mint. You can appreciate the cool, clean taste; ripe banana and chocolate-dipped fudge blooming into late notes of mocha, ginger, and chocolate mousse. Dry finish of ginger cookies and espresso. All aboard!£40
