Rattray’s Selection #01

Country: Scotland
Type: Blended Malt
Bottler: A. Dewar Rattray
ABV: 55.8%
Score: 92 points

This 19-year-old blended malt brings together whiskies from Auchentoshan, Balblair, BenRiach, and Bowmore vatted together for 9 months in sherry hogsheads used previously at Benrinnes. The complexity is evident in the nose, rich and sweet with brown sugar, peach pie, ginger, and a hint of Maricopa almonds. The taste is rich and thick with subtle cinnamon balanced well with peaches, pears, and a touch of raisins. The finish is lingering and thick with ginger, almond, and a touch of smoke. Excellent!
