Signatory (distilled at Ben Nevis), Cask #7438, 31 year old, 1975 vintage, 58.4%

Price: $300.00 Issue: Winter 2007 Reviewer: John Hansell

Very traditional West Highland style: somewhat rustic, muscular, and oily in texture, with notes of leather, bourbon, espresso, orange peel, kiwi, and a suggestion of ultra-aged Caribbean rum. Occasionally, a softer side of vanilla and coconut shows itself, but, if this whiskey were a man, he would be a lumberjack.
