Gordon & MacPhail Allt a' Bhainne 1996. Image courtesy Gordon & MacPhail.This 16-year-old single malt from Gordon & MacPhail’s Connoisseurs Choice range has a nice maltiness on the nose along with notes of custard, muted spices, fresh pears and apples, and a hint of linseed oil. The taste is tart and fruity with citrus notes of lemon, lime, and pineapple, along with hints of ginger, coconut and black pepper. The finish is light, dry, tart, and lingering. A few drops of water will smooth it out, add a touch of vanilla on the palate, and amp up the spiciness on the finish. (May, 2015)
