What the Pros Say: Wine Enthusiast - 94 Points: "So named because it was originally an exclusive for The Politician bar on Scotland's remote Eriskay island, this golden whisky has a mild, slightly floral aroma. Hints of almond butter, pear and white flowers lead into a warming toasted coconut finish laced with plenty of tingly white pepper."
