That Boutique-y Whisky Company (distilled at Glentauchers) 17 year old, 48.8%

Price: $76 Issue: Fall 2017 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

It will soon be 120 years since this workhorse of a distillery came into being. Golden Grahams, sanded oak, whole lemon, floral blooms, and cumin seeds on the nose, but the whole confection is rather restrained. The palate is sweet, but could be too sweet for some; Scottish tablet, caramel, ripe banana, granulated sugar, and ginger loaf. Some late heat accompanies the sugary finish. Remember to brush your teeth before bed.
