That Boutique-y Whisky Company (distilled at Tobermory) 21 year old, 51.2%

Price: $65 Issue: Fall 2017 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

An aged island dram to mull over during the distillery's lengthy closure for essential upgrades, this brims with lemon sherbet, summer fruits including cantaloupe, and Bartlett pears poached in cream. Tangy citrus balanced with ginger and peppery spice, cocoa notes, and black bun make for a lively mouthfeel. Creamy fudge and Jaffa cake rule once the spices die back. An enchantingly delicate orange sorbet flavor appears when diluted.
