Wemyss Malts (distilled at Bunnahabhain) 1991 Oysters with Lemon Pearls, 46%

Price: $154 Issue: Winter 2014 Reviewer: Dave Broom

Light gold with a very fresh and slightly ozonic nose that brings to mind Thai herbs: lemongrass, galangal, as well as lime. Just slightly nippy when neat. The palate is equally intense, but with a central sweetness. Water cuts down this razor-sharp intensity, adding a softer mid-palate texture, while the finish remains slightly mineraly. A decent aperitif Bunna.£97
