Insider knowledge: Allt-á-Bhainne 1991 - Connoisseurs Choice (Gordon and MacPhail) whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Allt-á-Bhainne 1991 - Connoisseurs Choice (Gordon and MacPhail) whiskey, as opposed to 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.
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.

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.
