Wemyss Malts Peaches and Cream 1989 (distilled at Glen Garioch), 46%

Price: $133 Issue: Spring 2015 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

This 25 year old single cask bottling of Glen Garioch from Wemyss was one of a dozen released in late 2014. The hogshead in which maturation took place yielded 357 bottles. The nose gives apple, banana, vanilla fudge, nutmeg, and soft spices. Creamy and nutty on the palate, with a squeeze of lemon, soft toffee, and milk chocolate. The finish is medium in length, spicy and nutty, with cocoa powder and just a suggestion of smoke.£87
