Murray McDavid Mission IV (distilled at Tomintoul) 1973 Vintage, 46%

Price: $210 Issue: Winter 2005 Reviewer: John Hansell

Fragrant and very clean. Gently sweet with notes of vanilla cream, ripe barley, fresh cut hay, sherbet (orange and lemon), and a hint of bourbon -especially on the finish. An enjoyable and undemanding whisky to drink when the whisky itself isn’t the main topic of conversation.
