Murray McDavid 1996 Loch Lomond 19 year old, 46%

Price: $135 Issue: Summer 2019 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Selected from one of Scotland's most fascinating distilleries and finished in fresh bourbon casks from Chicago's Koval Distillery, the nose has light lemon, white pepper, mixed citrus, green melon, green chili, and floral notes. Soft pulpy melon, green fruits, poached pear, hints of citrus, then a wave of brown sugar and caramel sweetness melts into buttery fudge, with a late burst of cloves, peppercorn, and toasted hazelnut. (635 bottles for U.S.)
