The MacTarnahan, 15 years old, 46%

Amber gold color. Rich, malty aroma with interwoven notes of fruit and oak. Floral note and just the wisp of smoke add complexity. Similar flavors-big and rich-with a long satisfying dryish finish.

Wild Turkey Russell's Reserve 10 year old, 50.5%

Amber chestnut color. Mature aromas of oak, vanilla, toffee, and leather. A heavyweight bourbon with a huge flavor profile-oak, leather, and molasses, turning quite dry with a spicy, nutty finish that is very long and warming.

Blackadder 27 years old (distilled at Bowmore), 50.5%

Amber color. Aromas of peat smoke (but more subdued than many Bowmore whiskies in their teens), toasted oak, citrus fruit, vanilla, and a hint of the sea. Its flavors are similar, which express themselves in a very mature manner-oak flavors are more dominant than other components. Still, there is an emerging brine freshness that keeps the whisky from becoming tired and dull. Good, lengthy finish.
Style: Islay single malt Scotch whisky. Availability: only 244 bottles total.
