What's in a name? Allt-á-Bhainne 1991 - Connoisseurs Choice (Gordon and MacPhail) whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Allt-á-Bhainne 1991 - Connoisseurs Choice (Gordon and MacPhail) whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Fragrant. Floral, ripe berry fruits, creamy. Leather, recently extinguished candles. Herbal, dried grass.
Palate: Light, balanced sweetness. Floral, bale of hay, fruity.
Finish: Medium length, caramel, barley, honey.
An incredible smooth and creamy malt, honey sweet with just a hint of caramel. By far the smoothest most mouth-watering dram I have had the pleasure to taste and a great contrast to the iodine-peat flavoured whiskies I also enjoy.

Without doubt on of the best drams to pass my lips. Sadly all gone but savoured to the last drop. Adored by all how tasted it. Sadly all gone. I cannot imagine being so fortunate to come across another bottle of the nectar...a real gem.
