Mackillop's Choice (distilled at Imperial), 23 year old, 1979 vintage, 56.6%

Price: $115.00 Issue: Summer 2005 Reviewer: John Hansell

Aged in a bourbon cask. This is a big, vibrantly fruity whisky (lemon, lime, orange, grape), with background notes of anise, fat barley, and vanilla. An unusual and often difficult to find dram. (Bottled exclusively for “Wine on the 9”.)
