Cocktail Articles

Ice

Frozen water, usually in a cube. Make sure the water you use is clean and fresh, be careful of ice cubes from places where the tap water is not safe to drink. To make clear ice cubes use distilled water and boil it gently first to remove dissolved gases. In order for water to freeze its temperature must fall below 0c, to completely freeze a body of water takes time as the outer frozen layers protects in the inner liquid. During freezing heat energy is drawn out of the liquid and the molecules slow down, eventually binding rigidly to each other. When ice is added to a drink it assorbs a large amount of heat from the surrounding liquid until both reach the same temperature. Ice can come as cubes, crushed, cracked or in the shape of a swan!

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Auchentoshan 1966, 31 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.80%
8 A fine whisky, but does something as fresh and soft benefit from quite so much ageing?

Aberlour 1988, Distiller's Selection
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 An astonishingly malty whisky. For someone who wants to taste the eponymous ingredient, this shows it at its best.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Auchentoshan 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Very expressive when young – as might be expected from a classic Lowlander.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Aberlour 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 More sophisticated, especially in the finish. Better balanced, but less voluptuous maltiness.

The Glenlivet 1968 Vintage
Single Malt - Scotland - 52.75%
8 Has the complexity I expect from The Glenlivet.

The Glenlivet 1972 Vintage
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.29%

Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%

Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 A deft balance between the whisky's own character and the sherry.

Adelphi Bladnoch 22 Years Old, Single cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 On the dry side for this whisky.

Murray McDavid Rosebank 1990, Sherry Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%

8 All of the characteristic floweriness of Rosebank, but with some roundness.

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.

Jameson Irish Whiskey
Blended - Ireland - 40.00%
8 A superb Irish for everyday drinking. I love this, though not quite as much as the 1780.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Redbreast 12 Years Old
Blended - Ireland - 40.00%
9 Delicious, soothing, contemplative. A great whiskey. Makes me want to get on a plane to Dublin immediately.

Tullamore Dew 12 Years Old
Blended - Ireland - 40.00%
7 Flirtatious, but not a lot to say for itself.

Kilbeggan Blended Irish Whiskey
Blended - Ireland - 40.00%
7 Light but firm and satisfying. A welcome newcomer for everyday drinking.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Black Bush
Blended - Ireland - 43.00%
8 Long one of my great favourites. In composition, it is the the simplest of blends, yet it demonstrates how malt can someimes be enhanced by a leavening of grain.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 45.20%
8 Perhaps encouraged by the dark orange colour, the descriptors sound sweet, but the overall effect is one of flowery dryness, with great finesse.

Locke's Blended Irish Whiskey
Blended - Ireland - 40.00%
7 Very appetising.
