Wemyss Malts (distilled at Glenrothes) 1988 Aromatic Orange Tobacco, 46%

Price: $188 Issue: Winter 2014 Reviewer: Dave Broom

Highly fragrant and citric, mixing dried and sweet orange peels, moist sultana fruitcake. Lightly malty with gentle nuances of fruit syrup. Pretty and elegant in the mouth, where there's orange barley water, mint, and crystallized ginger on top of a thick, honeyed delivery before the classic ‘Rothes sweet spices come through. Only a drop or two of water is needed. Recommended.£117
