Murray McDavid (distilled at Highland Park) 1988 14 year old, 46%

Price: $48 Issue: Summer 2003 Reviewer: John Hansell

Deep gold color. Nicely balanced aroma of honeyed malt, fruit, floral notes, and a hint of the sea. Medium in body and smooth. The palate begins with soothing honey notes, followed by a rich maltiness. Ripe fruit flavors emerge, lush and delicious. The whisky eventually becomes dry and floral, with a suggestion of salt.
