The Glenlivet 1969 Vintage
Single Malt - Scotland - 52.20%
8 A little woody.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

The Glenlivet 1970 Vintage
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.58%
8 Enjoyable, but I expected a little more.

The Balvenie 15 Years Old Single Barrel
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.40%
8 Certainly robust. Perhaps a little harsh?

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Teacher's Highland Cream
Blended - Scotland - 43.00%
8 Malty, even creamy, but never cloying. Big and sustaining. The whisky world's answer to Kendal Mint Cake.

Maker's Mark Kentucky Straight Bourbon
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 45.00%
8 Beautifully structured. Tightly combined flavours. Every bit as smooth as it claims to be.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glenturret 21 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 After dinner.

Adelphi The Macallan 1988
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.50%
7 I prefer my Macallan with its typical sherry character.

Balblair Elements
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Gentle, but complex as the flavours open.

Glen Garioch 8 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 I love the peaty, burnt notes notes in this robustly malty whisky.

Old Pulteney 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 A complex and distinctive malt.

Royal Brackla 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 A pleasant malt, but this bottling has less structure than I remember. It is to be hoped that new owners Dewar's give more prominence to this distillery.

Adelphi Bruichladdich 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 49.40%
7 It is more substantial than people think, as this bottling shows.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Yoichi 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Japan - 43.00%
8 This is a wonderful whisky at 10 Years Old. I love the almost shocking hit of heavy peating.

Signatory Glenlossie 1980
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 Delicate, appetising and refreshing, but falls away in the middle.

Signatory Bowmore 1968
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 At first tasting, I was hard-pressed to find any Islay character at all. On a second tasting, the next morning with a fresh palate, I began to find some smokiness. Even then, it seemed to emerge on th...

Gordon & MacPhail Benromach 1974
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 I have always found Benromach assertively flowery, herbal, almost cedary. Will this highly distinctive character prevail in the new, smaller, stills introduced since the change of ownership? Tastings...

Cooper's Choice Mortlach 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 A good bottling of this lovely malt. Mortlach has such complexity that I find new aromas and flavours every time I raise the glass.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Jameson Gold
Blended - Ireland - 40.00%
8 There is some virgin oak in this one, along with bourbon casks. Bonus points for trying something new, but would have expected more interesting results. I find it a bit light tasting. Try it with fres...

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Jameson 12 Years Old
Blended - Ireland - 43.00%
8 The aroma that I associate with a traditional Irish. A superb example for everyday drinking.

Private Collection Imperial 1990 Cognac Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Cognac finishes seem to have achieved results that are, at best, mixed. In this instance, the contribution is less than obvious.

Private Collection Imperial 1990 Claret Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 The wine seems to have made common cause with the juicy sweetness, and the two have overwhelmed the cereal-grain and peat smoke that usually make this a more robust malt. This version would be a good ...

Jameson 15 Years Old Limited Edition
Pot Still - Ireland - 40.00%
8 Those oily aromatics are quite a shock at first. Shows just how different a true 'Irish' character was 15 years ago, or does Jameson benefit greatly from age?

Old Fitzgerald 12 Years Old
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 45.00%
8 Characterful, but not an easy whisky on the basis of this bottling. Bitterness seems to have gained a notch at the expense of the fudge flavours. Water brings it back, but not all the way.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Forty Creek Barrel Select
Blended - Canada - 40.00%
8 The richest-tasting Canadian whisky I have tasted. Wins points for luxury.

Isle of Jura 21 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 The sherry, and the balance of flavours, seem to work better in this version.
