Cadenhead’s St. Magdalene 15

Country: Scotland
Region: Lowlands
Type: Single Malt
Bottler: Cadenhead's
ABV: 45.7%
Score: 94 points

This classic was distilled at St. Magdalene in 1964 and bottled in 1979 by Cadenhead’s in one of their legendary “dumpy” bottles. The nose has notes of grapefruit, mango, butterscotch, ginger, coconut, and banana with excellent balance and complexity…even after years in the bottle. The taste is nectar-thick and syrupy with notes of cinnamon, mango, grapefruit, lemon, coconut, and vanilla. The finish is lingering, delicate, fruity, and smooth. Thanks to Peter Silver of the Malt Maniacs for providing a sample from his collection! (October, 2014)
