McClelland's Highland Single Malt
I am back from Antarctica and went to my local Spec's to get a bottle to replace my nearly finished Old Pulteney 12. Things are a bit tight right now so I was going to get Teacher's. However while looking I saw the range of McClelland's Single Malts (Islay, Highland, Speyside, and Lowland)..very cheap at $20 a bottle. I bought the Highland. Not great, but very good for the price, especially with a splash of water. Nose is similar to OP 12, while the taste is a bit similar to Dalmore 12 although not as sweet. The finish is a bit gingery and spicy. best thing is it is $20 and there is none of that grain alcohol taste that blends have. The Dr. Whisky blog says this whisky is likely Glen Garioch. I plan to try the Islay next, which is said to be Bowmore.
