Aberfeldy 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Refreshing and light-hearted. Almost too playful to take seriously.

Knob Creek 9 Years Old
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 50.00%
8 Teasing interplay of sweetness and dryness, with the latter eventually winning.

Glenmorangie 1991, Sauternes Wood Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Not easy to evaluate what sauternes casks have brought in. An extra sweetness maybe but no particular sauternes aromas. Appreciable bottling strength.

Living Cask Volume XI
Blended - Scotland - 57.00%
7 A loud lad whose tone needs softening.

Glen Spey 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 Definitely Speyside. Elegant interplay between fruit and malt.

Old Malt Cask North Port 36 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 49.30%
7 Of interest to collectors, historians and the likes of me, but this Brechin brew, staunched in 1983, never made a great whisky.

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.

Gordon & MacPhail Mortlach 1938, 60 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 A great age, but it has matured beautifully.

The Whisky Exchange Dunglas 1967
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 The fresh, charming bouquet was a revelation, but the palate was a little careworn.

Cadenhead's Convalmore-Glenlivet 26 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 61.40%
7 A welcome opportunity to taste a rare whisky, though it was never a classic, and in this instance is over the hill (or the Conval Hills?).

Miyagikyo 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Japan - 45.00%
7 Nose is more attractive than the palate. Lacks elegance and cohesion.

Fujigotenba 15 Years Old, Single Grain
Single Malt - Japan - 43.00%
7 Characterful but I would have easily mistaken it for Cognac.

Fujigotenba 18 Years Old, Single Malt
Single Malt - Japan - 43.00%
7 I like its balance and elegance. Again in a cognac style like a mature X. O. from 'fins bois terroir'.

Dewar Rattray Dufftown 1975, 29 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 With some Dufftowns you are glad when you've had enough. This is a well-made example which has been matched by very good bourbon wood.

Cutty Sark Imperial Kingdom
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
8 A smooth and caressing blend. Full of charm. The balance is superb. Gives a sense of comfort and relief.

Isle of Jura Superstition
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.00%
7 The nose is lively but the palate is put to sleep by sweetness.

Dewar Rattray Benrinnes 14 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.30%
7 Nose and palate are a bit agressive with a lingering sourness which is disturbing. A prickly character. Water smooths the flavours over but this is not enough.

Duncan Taylor Strathisla 37 Years Old, Cask 1332
Single Malt - Scotland - 47.60%
7 More complexity on the nose than on the palate. A pleasant whisky though. But quite disappointing for a Strathisla of that age.

Balblair 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 An attractive character. Too much sweetness on the palate though.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Balblair 38 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 44.00%
9 A pure beauty. Absolutely beaming on nose and palate. The best a sherry cask can offer.

Bakery Hill Classic
Single Malt - Australia - 60.00%
7 Unusual. Very tickly but water tames it and brings a fresh fruity flavours out.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Penderyn Grand Slam
Single Malt - Wales - 46.00%
8 A well structured whisky. Oak frames the aromatic palette without overpowering. Quite a complex dram.

Laphroaig 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
3 Age acts as a melting pot. All the distinctive Laphroaig features are there but combined into oak. Interesting.

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.
