Strathclyde 12 year old, 62.1%

Price: $73 Issue: Summer 2014 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

An official Strathclyde from Chivas Bros., presented in its squat bottle from their under-appreciated Cask Strength Edition series. I found a peculiar nose comprising shafts of lemongrass, garlic bulb, root ginger, taffy candy, and green tea. As an Iron Dram, it's oily and bold, with coconut, fresh mint, and green pea, with a savory note tugging at the taste buds. Dilution highlights scallions, a light creamy toffee, and Reese's peanut butter cups. Curiously intriguing: for bold flavor explorers only.£43
