Mackillop's Choice (distilled at Glenlivet) 27 year old 1977 vintage, 43%

Price: $125 Issue: Summer 2006 Reviewer: John Hansell

A very clean whisky, with fragrant dried flowers, aromas of germinating barley, textured honey, vanilla waver, coconut cream and teasing fresh pineapple. Drying, delicately minty finish. For those who love the richly elegant, non-sherried style of older Glenlivet whiskies.
