Wemyss Malts (distilled at Invergordon) Mocha Moment 1988, 46%

Price: $127 Issue: Winter 2016 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

A rather moreish grain, and Wemyss certainly nailed the chocolate orange aromas on the nose here. Bright bursts of rich orange and comforting milk chocolate accompany gentle underlying spices, star anise, treacle-drizzled hams, and Godiva mint pearls. The palate is easygoing, with chocolate muffins, condensed milk, dates, and milky Coco Pops. There is oak, but it's never obtrusive, and of course, cold mocha that fades slowly, until the moment has passed. (240 bottles)£102
