Aberlour 1976
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 A little more roundness would have been appreciated.

J & B Rare
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
6 Some very enjoyable flavours, but lacking in dimension for me. I'll try it again at bedtime.

Glenfiddich 40 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.60%
9 This is an urbane whisky that will not easily reveal itself. Take your time with it. Enjoy its company.

Port Ellen 25 Years Old, Special Release 2005
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.40%
8 Old, intense and busting for an olifactory fight. Complex and grizzly, like Clint Eastwood in The Unforgiven.

Whisky Fair Glen Scotia 'Heavily peated'
Single Malt - Scotland - 52.70%
7 This is just too odd.

The Antiquary 1977 Rare Old Blended
- Scotland - 46.00%
7 Great balance and a real surprise in the mouth...and it's green.

Highland Park Earl Haakon
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.90%
7 That whisky definitely needs water. But it lacks balance and charm. The alcohol is not mastered.

Glenfarclas 43 Years Old, Cognac Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.70%
9 Incredibly “alive” for a 43 Years Old whisky. Absolutely wonderful. Fully matured or just finished in a cognac cask ? Whatever, it worked superbly.

The Macallan Select Oak
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Very easy drinking,but holds the interest with its various layers.

Evan Williams 1992 (Bottled 2001)
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 43.30%
Solidly built and huge. A different style.

Evan Williams 1998 (Bottled 2007)
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 43.30%
The bigger fatter ones like this and the ‘92 are slightly less expressive.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Sazerac 18 Years Old Bottled Fall 2007
Rye - U.S.A. - 45.00%
8 More of a sipper than a cocktail rye.

Cragganmore Distillers Edition 1993 Port Wine
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
The finish accentuates elements which are already in the whisky without dominating and obscuring the distillery character.

Wemyss Vintage Malts Smooth Gentleman
Blended Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Certainly lives up to its name.

Glenfarclas The Family Casks 1963 Release X
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.50%
7 Not without merit, but just not quite as exciting, or engaging as the previous whiskies.

Glen Garioch (A Rare Find) 1998 14 Years Old Cask 663
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.30%
8 An enticing “whispering” whisky which makes me think of a fresh watercolour. Or a Schubert “moment sonata.” Definitely a springtime dram.

Glenfarclas The Family Casks 1963 Release
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.50%
7 Not without merit, but just not quite as exciting as the previous whiskies.

Elements of Islay Elements of Islay PL1
Single Malt - Scotland - 60.00%
8 With water, this shows signs of popping its head over to the other side, but only fleetingly.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glenfarclas The Family Casks 1989 22 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.90%
8 A monster, anyone with a strong aversion to bold, sherried whiskies should probably look away now.

Jack Daniel's Sinatra Select
Tennessee - U.S.A. - 45.00%
8 ?A classic rye whiskey. Gains balance and sweetness with a dash of water.

Spirit of Freedom 30 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 46.00%
8 A good early evening dram.

That Boutique-y Whisky Company Invergordon Batch 3
Single Grain - Scotland - 49.80%
7 Is this a first fill Oloroso matured blend? It certainly gives that impression.

Compass Box Spice Tree Extravaganza
Blended Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 There's a lot to love here – the fruity characters, complexity and texture add up to a satisfying whole.

Murray McDavid Mission Gold: Bowmore 26 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.40%
8 Greener than I'd expected, but a solid dram from the Queen of the Hebrides.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Sullivans Cove French Oak Cask Matured
Single Malt - Australia - 47.50%
8 One for sherry fans. The nose was my favourite part.
