Winners

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Bushmills Millennium
Single Malt - Ireland - 40.00%
8 Tightly combined flavours. Delicate. Elegant.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Cadenhead's Dumbarton (Inverleven Stills) 18 Years Old
Single Grain - Scotland - 57.90%
8 A great delicacy but the strength needs to be put down by a good dash of water. But it is not enough to cut all the edges off.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Cadenhead's Millburn 31 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 52.30%
8 Not a great aromatic display. A cardboardy touch on the palate. Water soothes alcohol a little while underlining the unidimensional aniseed/minty profile.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Cameronbridge C3583
- Scotland - 54.40%
8 Mature. A great start!

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Canto Over 10 Years Old Cask No 46

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Canto Over 10 Years Old Cask No 6
- Scotland - 53.10%
8 A more intense version. Highly recommended.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Caol Ila 16 Years Old

8 Just one of a great clutch of smoky drams this time around.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Caol Ila Berrys' Own Selection 1996
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.80%

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Caol Ila Cask Strength
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.00%
8 Bold, well-balanced example, most drinkable.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Caol Ila Distillers Edition 1995
- Scotland - 43.00%
8 A charming nose which is not fully delivered on the palate. But an excellent dram all together.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Caskstrength & Carry On Benriach 1996 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.20%
8 Sherry and Bourbon goodness, quite unusual for Benriach. Perfect for these autumnal evenings.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Celtique Connexion 1993 Monbazillac Wood Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 Quite a strong character. Uncompromising warmth. Good balanced. You need to like it hot to enjoy the dram.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Celtique Connexion Cadillac Wood Finish 1990
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 A whispering dram. Nothing wrong with that. You've just got to tune in to its delicacy. The character is full and complex. Dangerously enticing especially with a dash of water.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Chieftain's Choice Brora 24 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Elegant and highly individual. Takes no prisoners.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Chivas Brothers Glenallachie 15 Years Old, Cask Strength Edition

8 Perhaps too sweet for some malt lovers but packed with flavour. Bland it ain't.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Chivas Regal 18 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
8 A bit overbalanced by sherry, but nicely rounded by the smoky finish.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Chivas Regal 25 Years old
- Scotland - 40.00%
8 Great blending,but it would be even better if bottled at a slightly higher strength.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Clan Denny Lochside 1963, Great Single Grain
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.20%
8 A liquid pudding! Rich and old.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner
