John MacDougall's Selection (distilled at Bladnoch), 16 year old, 55.8%,

Price: $120.00 Issue: Winter 2009 Reviewer: John Hansell

Bright gold color, and bright in flavor. Very much in the Bladnoch style, with honey-kissed lemon, tangerine, kiwi, creamy vanilla, lightly toasted marshmallow, marzipan, cut grass, and hay. Richly textured for a Lowland, and palate-coating (a tad oily, too!). The extra years have added some depth, while still retaining a youthful zest. Very enjoyable.
