Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Aberlour a'bunadh
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.60%
8 A dark, luxurious, post-prandial whisky from a distillery that is producing an increasing, and impressive range.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Highland Park 1977 Bicentenary Vintage Reserve
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
9 After that voluptuous dinner.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Aberlour a'bunadh
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.60%
8 Darker, drier and more spicily assertive than the earlier version, despite only a slight difference in ages.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Adelphi Linkwood 17 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 64.20%
8 Linkwood always evokes thoughts of sweetmeats, sometimes delicate, on other occasions more robust. This is in the latter mood: down-to-earth sweetness.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Adelphi Glen Grant 1969
Single Malt - Scotland - 52.90%
8 Holds up very well in the middle but the woodiness at the end is overpowering.

Glenturret 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 More luscious, but beautifully balanced. Aperitif?

The Dalmore 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Said to be married in sherry butts. In this instance, marriage certainly works.

Private Collection Caol Ila 1998 Claret Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 The least characterful of the three Caol Ila wood finishes.

Gordon & MacPhail Linkwood 1969
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Linkwood is a lovely whisky, especially in its older incarnations.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Bushmills 21 Years Old
Single Malt - Ireland - 40.00%
7 A delicious whisky. The sweetness and nuttiness of Bushmills whiskey and of Madeira are an enjoyable double-act. The whiskey has to work hard to avoid being upstaged.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Ballantine's Limited
Blended - Scotland - 43.00%
8 Much more sherryish than the colour suggests. Sweet. Sponge fingers. I wouldn't have recognised it as a Ballantine's.

Bowmore Dawn
Single Malt - Scotland - 51.50%
8 Wood finishes are still fun and may recruit new enthusiasts for malt. Dawn, Dusk, Voyager...this is becoming confusing. Of those three (Port, Bordeaux and Port again), Dawn seems the lightest all-roun...

Maker's Mark Kentucky Straight Bourbon
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 45.00%
8 This famously smooth whisky seems slightly less sweet than I remember, especially in the nose and finish. Better balanced, but perhaps fractionally less distinctive.

Glenmorangie Manager's Choice Port Wood
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.20%
7 Very port-tasting and curiously unrefined. Having robust tastes in food and drink, I loved it. Some might find it lacking in sophistication.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Van Winkle 13 Years Old, Family Reserve Rye
Rye - U.S.A. - 47.80%
8 Showing its age. It seems to have lost a little liveliness but, if you were as rich as this, would you care?

World Whiskies Awards 2009 - World's Best Grain Whisky - Winner

Compass Box Hedonism
Blended Grain - Scotland - 43.00%
8 Someone knows what they are doing. Who would have thought grain whisky could taste so good?

Wild Turkey Rye
Rye - U.S.A. - 50.50%
8 The wildness of 101, tempered with the extra rye, makes for a very distinctive whiskey.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Wild Turkey 17 Years Old
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 50.50%
8 I like this very much, for its complexity and originality. As a bourbon? The useful phrase ‘something else' comes to mind.

Cadenhead's Dumbarton 1969, Sherry Wood
Single Grain - Scotland - 51.20%
8 Bossily buoyant. Loses in delicacy what it gains in flavour and texture. Miles away from the Lowlands.

Blackadder Ben Nevis 1984 Raw Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 61.20%
7 Extraordinarily red colour. The sweetness is almost overwhelming. The ultimate dessert whisky.

Signatory Caol Ila 1991, Port Wood
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 I would like to try this with lamb.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Cooper's Choice Dallas Dhu 1970, 32 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Delicious Dallas Dhu does it again. How long can this go on?

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

The Balvenie PortWood 21 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 This expression beautifully highlights the qualities of The Balvenie as a whisky that is full of rich flavours yet gentler and less robust than, for example, Glenfarclas or The Macallan.

World Whiskies Awards 2011 - World's Best Single Malt Whisky - Winner

Yamazaki 1984
Single Malt - Japan - 63.00%
7 A huge whisky but overwhelmingly fruity and alcoholic.

Tomintoul 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Quite a muscular Speysider. The perfect dram to buck you up after a woodland walk mushroom-picking on a cold November day.
