The Antiquary, 21 year old, 43%

Price: $100.00 Issue: Winter 2008 Reviewer: John Hansell

Drier than the 12 year old (reviewed below), with some darker fruit (black raspberry, blueberry) marrying with the brighter orchard fruit. Sweet up front - honey and caramel - with a peppering of spice (dried vanilla, clove, and cinnamon) increasing as the palate develops. Dry, oak spice finish. Lovely!
