Wemyss Malts ‘Rum ‘n' Raisin' Single Cask, 46%

Price: $133.00 Issue: Summer 2012 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

Produced at Tullibardine distillery in 1989, this ex-bourbon hogshead has yielded 299 bottles. The expression lives up to its name with rum and raisin ice cream on the nose; floral, with glacé cherries, dried apricots, and pistachio nuts. More nuts and lots of spice on the palate, plus dark chocolate, dates, and prunes. The finish is medium in length, with spicy, benign oak. £85
