Glenfiddich 21 Years Old, Gran Reserva
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glengoyne 2000 AD

9 Delicious example of maltiness in a whisky. I always enjoy Glengoynes very much, but they invariably leave me wanting a little more.

8 The second of Morangie's twin peaks

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glenmorangie 1995 Artisan Cask

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glenmorangie 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 44.30%
8 Sherry wood is undoubtedly invasive but yet, here's a complex one. To be softened by chocolate pralines or almond biscuits.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glenmorangie A Midwinter Night's Dram
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 I can't say I'm getting much Highland character here, but as sherry monsters go, it's ok.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glenmorangie Artisan
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 A malt to make peace with the whole world. Soothing, graceful, satisfying.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glenmorangie Burr Oak
