Signatory 16 year old 1988 vintage (Cask #42508, distilled at Bowmore), 46%

Price: $60 Issue: Spring 2007 Reviewer: John Hansell

Medium-bodied and nicely textured. Good balance of flavors -- and well-integrated, too -- with lovely sweet notes (cereal grain, cookie dough, caramel, and vanilla cream), young heathery peat, tar, fishnets, and brine that is complementary, but not aggressive, with a suggestion of lavender and tangerine. Balanced finish. (332 bottles produced.)
