Jura Feith A' Chaorainn 1976 Vintage, 46%

Price: $796 Issue: Spring 2012 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

The name of this limited-edition bottling translates as ‘the lands around the rowan,' and the component whisky has been matured in three, fresh-run American white oak hogsheads. Tinned peaches, a hint of smoke, and developing cream soda on the nose. Soft toffee and ultimately, chimney soot. The palate is full and fruity, with Brazil nuts, drying quite rapidly, with coriander notes. Dark chocolate and licorice characterize the finish. (500 bottles). £500
