Glendronach Special Cask,1993

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glenfarclas 21 Years Old

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glenfarclas 43 Years Old, Cognac Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.70%

8 Elegant. Well-balanced to the point of suavity.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glenfiddich 1973 Vintage Reserve

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glenfiddich 21 Years Old, Gran Reserva
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Delivers more than expected. Seems a bit bland at start but it displays an attractive array of aromas and flavours on time. The rum influence is under control.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glengoyne 2000 AD
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
9 Delicious example of maltiness in a whisky. I always enjoy Glengoynes very much, but they invariably leave me wanting a little more.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glenkeir Treasures Ben Nevis 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 A slightly uneasy balance between cereal, fruit and oak. Do not water.
