Glen Drummond

Another scotch I sampled from the Pop's collection was one he purchased in Goa, India, which I had never seen or tasted: Glen Drummond.

It is from Scotland, but does not appear to be exported to my local area. It does not even show up on the extensive BevMo site. It cost my father the equivalent of $18 US for this gem. Sweet, like Glen Grant, slightly smoky like a northern Islay, slightly more syrupy and full-bodied than MacAllan 12 and other similarly aged Highlands. The back of the bottle's case talks about the the taste of "green apples." I failed to find any such taste.

Not highly complex, but I highly recommend this if you can get your hands on it. Goa is great this time of year.
