February 2013, Issue 109, page 14
Kilbeggan Blended Irish Whiskey
Blended - Ireland - 40.00% 7 Light but firm and satisfying. A welcome newcomer for everyday drinking.
Old Malt Cask Ardbeg 28 Years Old, The Ardbeggeddon 1972, Sherry Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 48.40% 8 One of the best Ardbegs I have ever tasted. Full range of the distillery's typical flavours, lyrically combined.
Cooper's Choice Strathisla 1976, 27 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 8 Always a complex whisky, hard to pin down. This sample seems to have triggered an oriental mood.
Signatory Edradour Burgundy Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.00% 6 Not to my taste. Only useful as a weapon in hand-to-hand combat.
Brora 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.30% 7 Dour at first then opening up in a delightful way. Take your time to get acquainted with this fellow and you'll like it.
Dewar Rattray Ben Nevis 1992 14 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.20% 7 I find it a little grubby.
BenRiach 25 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00% 8 Another killer from Mr Walker's warehouse. Distillery of the year for me.
Dun Bheagan Linkwood 11 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 7 Insubstantial.
Ledaig 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 7 Another that's growing in character. I'm looking forward to the 12 Years Old.
Kilbeggan 15 Years Old
Blended - Ireland - 40.00% 7 Proof (if it were needed) that Cooley is a serious player.
Blended - Ireland - 40.00% 7 An attractive sipper, but only in decent mouthfuls. A good session whiskey...if one is allowed to say that in these moderate times.
Tsuru 17 Years Old
Blended - Japan - 43.00% 8 The finish pulls it down. Other than that, very approachable and highly drinkable.
Caol Ila 1984 23 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.00% 7 Awake up dram. Fresh,vibrant,wide open on the sea horizon. Bring bacon and eggs.
Kilbeggan 18 Years Old
Blended - Republic of Ireland - 40.00% 7 18 years already? Cooley continues to show its quality.
E.H. Taylor Jnr Single Barrel 2000 11 Years Old
Single Malt - U.S.A. - 50.00% 8 A polished and complex whiskey.
George T. Stagg
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 71.30% 8 Something of a gentle giant.
Parker's Heritage Collection Cognac Finish 10 Years Old
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 50.00% 8 Everything meshes very nicely here.
Single Grain - Scotland - 48.00% The most wood influenced. Medium bodied. Very focused spirit.
Dewar's 12 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00% A smooth, steel fist in an ornate velvet glove.
Dry Fly Port Finish Wheat
Wheat - U.S.A. - 42.00% 8 Hard to pin an age on this, as it has some lovely fresh youthfulness, but an elegant maturity too.
Master of Malt Ardbeg 18 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.30% 8 Try describing ‘Islay' to someone who has never visited before. If they still don't get it, give them a dram of this.
Aberfeldy Bits of Strange 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.10% 8 Everything in its right place here and no mistake.
