Whisky Galore (distilled at Old Pulteney) 16 year old 1989 vintage, 46%

Price: $70 Issue: Fall 2006 Reviewer: John Hansell

Lightweight, with a slightly oily texture. Appetizingly fresh and briny on the palate, with underlying notes of hay, lime, vanilla-tinged malt, and a hint of seaweed on the finish. A mouth-watering aperitif.
