Murray McDavid 'Mission' (distilled at Clynelish) 1986, 46%

Price: $150.00 Issue: Fall 2003 Reviewer: John Hansell

Deep gold color. Fresh, exciting, spicy aroma of brine, exotic pepper, seaweed, and raw fruit, with interwoven notes of delicate peat and caramel. Full-bodied and muscular. Flavors are incredibly vibrant and dynamic-almost challenging-and are similar to its aroma. Salty, peppery, intense finish.
