That Boutique-y Whisky Company (distilled at Caledonian) 29 year old, 47.7%

Price: $74 Issue: Fall 2017 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

As young a Caledonian as you'll find; I found the nose rather underdeveloped. Crystallized lemon slices, green banana, solvents, dry grasses, and a sniff of nail polish remover. In the mouth, lemon flavors, saccharine sweet honey, and banana dipped in melted chocolate, while the alcohol nips at the tongue. A good trajectory redeems its character, leaving deep throbbing spice notes in the finish, with bitter citrus at the fringes.
