Mackillop's Choice (distilled at Tomintoul) 37 year old 1966 vintage, 43%

Price: $150 Issue: Summer 2006 Reviewer: John Hansell

Fresh and lively for its age, with appetizing saltiness, citrus fruit (lemon, line and orange marmalade), and subtly complex dried spices. A fat, malty foundation complements these seasonings beautifully mid-palate, with the salt and dried spices emerging again on the finish. Very sophisticated.
