Wemyss Malts Chocolate Honeycomb (distilled at Bunnahabhain) 2001, 46%

Price: $81 Issue: Fall 2013 Reviewer: Dave Broom

Rich and malty and, though it'll look like I'm just reading the label, there is

chocolate here: chocolate brownie mix to be precise, with a raspberry sitting

on top. Bold and rich, with a nutty underpinning. Water makes it very fresh and

a little more hay-like. The palate is sweet and liquorous, with nougat,

macadamia, and a chewy mid-palate where that chocolate dribbles and melts.

Neat, it is slightly bitter; less so with water. Very sound. £53
