Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

The Macallan 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Very satisfying.

Famous Grouse
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Creates the illusion of being massively more malty than it really is. Very good extraction of flavours from the wood seems to be the secret (or part of it). I am in awe of the dexterity of the blender...

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

Private Collection Caol Ila 1998 Calvados
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 The Calvados character is almost overwhelming but Caol Ila comes surging through in the finish.

Private Collection Imperial 1990 Calvados Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
6 As with the Caol Ila wood finishes reviewed in the last issue, the calvados is a powerful influence but the whisky does fight back-makes for an interesting combination.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

The Macallan 1951 Vintage
Single Malt - Scotland - 49.60%
8 I am a great devotee of the older Macallans, but this one is too woody for me.

Cooper's Choice Glen Albyn 1974, 28 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Fuller in flavours, and sweeter, than I remember Glen Albyn.

Bruichladdich Legacy 1966 Vintage
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.60%
8 An especially characterful 'laddie from its sunny hue and lean, firm body to its touch of tartness.

The Arran Malt Calvados Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 62.10%
7 Was the Calvados cask notably generous, or is Scotch whisky particularly receptive to the Norman spirit?

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

The Macallan 1989, Exceptional Cask V
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.20%
8 Lovely pinkish mahogany colour. Big esters, together with alcohol, balance a surprising degree of woodiness. Drinks older than it is. Another fogeyish bottling.

Glen Moray 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Not quite as complex as the previous 16 Years Old, but delicious.

Glen Moray 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 So beautifully composed that it left me craving some imperfection.

Old Islay Single Malt Bunnahabhain 33 Years Old selected by Royal Mile Whiskies
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.50%
7 Caramel and creamy notes dominate this whisky, which could be boring were it not for the intriguing hints or ripe fruit and Calvados.

Evan Williams Black
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 43.00%
7 Reminiscent of an old calvados at first. Palate is less creamy than the nose. For those who like it spicy. Water tames spices a little though.

Signatory Edradour Burgundy Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.00%
6 Not to my taste. Only useful as a weapon in hand-to-hand combat.

McGibbon's Port Ellen 23 Years Old, Provenance
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Reminded me of old Calvados. Oak tends to overwhelm fruit but a wee dash of water tones it down. Very unpeated for a Port Ellen!

Distillery Select Loch Lomond, Organic Single Highland Grain
Single Grain - Scotland - 45.00%
7 Unusual profile for a grain whisky. More reminiscent of a calvados. Oak is too blatant. Water wipes it out.

Wemyss Vintage Malts Apples and Pears 1991
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 A strange package that almost works.

High West Whiskey Double Rye
Rye - U.S.A. - 46.00%
7 Bold and well made. For me maybe just needs a bit more sweetness but worth a look.

Gordon & MacPhail Linkwood 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 That malt could easily be thrown in a calvados blind tasting, with aged oaky individuals.

Highland Park Loki
Single Malt - Scotland - 48.70%
8 An oaky character, slightly dour at first but opening on fruit and toffee. Be light when adding water.

Tomintoul Vintage
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.90%
7 ?I was expecting more oak on the palate. A definite sherry influence. Fruit and wood are well integrated. Reminds me of calvados!
