Royal Salute 32 year old Union of the Crowns, 43%

Price: $380 Issue: Spring 2017 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Containing some precious closed distillery stocks, this feels like the height of luxury with its aromas of clove-studded oranges, cinnamon sticks, rich chocolate, and caramels. It's slick and mouth-coating, emitting flavors of butter toffee, orange, and melted chocolate, with a nibble of ginger sponge, Jaffa cakes, and clove. It's smooth and impeccably well mannered.
