Mackillop's Choice (distilled at Mortlach), 22 year old, 1982 vintage, 43%

Price: $100.00 Issue: Summer 2006 Reviewer: John Hansell

Toffee and nougat, with a lacing of cotton candy. It then turns richly nutty-almost chewy-with notes of dried apricot, sultana, and a touch of red currant. Firm, dry, oak resin finish. A well-structured whisky, indicative of the Mortlach pedigree.
