Scott's Selection (distilled at Glenlivet) 27 year old 1977 Vintage, 53.1%

Price: $165 Issue: Fall 2005 Reviewer: John Hansell

Very stylish. Quite refined too, with notes of vanilla, peaches and flowering currant. The whisky is very soft on the palate, delicate and almost bashful at times. Indeed, it may take a couple of dates with this whisky for it to fully to reveal itself. The whisky finishes toasty, with a pleasing cereal grain maltiness. Some whiskies are great after dinner; others make wonderful pre-dinner drams. This one is great anytime.
