MacQueen's 3 year old, 40%

Price: $13 Issue: Winter 2017 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

MacQueen's has an impressive range of age statement blends, but this is the youngest one. Faint caramel and toast, a mild rub of whole spice, and snuff tobacco. The mouthfeel is meager and lacks any real punch; there is spice and fudge, but little sweetness. More caramel flavors develop alongside chocolate notes before a dry, quick finish. There are better options around, even at this price.
