Single Malt - Scotland - 58.10% 4 Ardbeg is one of my great favourites, and this is one of the best versions I have tasted recently.
Glenfiddich Malt Whisky Liqueur
- Scotland - 0.00% 3 A mid-evening treat when the open fire is glowing and the family gathered.
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?
Glenkinchie 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 7 I always enjoy this whisky, even though it is not the most typical of Lowlanders.
Auchentoshan 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 8 Very expressive when young – as might be expected from a classic Lowlander.
Aberlour 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 8 More sophisticated, especially in the finish. Better balanced, but less voluptuous maltiness.
Connoisseur's Choice Bladnoch 1986
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 7 The light touch of sherry helps bring out the soft, fruity, flavours.
Glenkinchie 1986 Amontillado cask finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 8 As a relatively restrained whisky, Glenkinchie stands up well to the amontillado finish.
Murray McDavid Rosebank 1990, Sherry Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 8 The flowery youth of the whisky and the freshness of the sherry cask achieve an interesting harmony.
Kilbeggan Blended Irish Whiskey
Blended - Ireland - 40.00% 7 Light but firm and satisfying. A welcome newcomer for everyday drinking.
Locke's Blended Irish Whiskey
Blended - Ireland - 40.00% 7 Very appetising.
Locke's Single Malt
Single Malt - Ireland - 40.00% 7 Beautifully balanced with toasted dryness.
Rare Malts Caol Ila 1977, 20 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 61.30% 8 A wonderful aperitif. Who would have thought of a Scotch to precede Greek food?
Drambuie Black Ribbon, 15 Years Old
- Scotland - 40.00% 5 Substantially darker, bigger, fruitier, drier, firmer, more structured and less syrupy than the Drambuie without the ribbon.
Highland Park 1958
Single Malt - Scotland - 44.00% 8 Some drinkers might perfer this great whisky slightly younger and fresher. Those who like a touch of oak will find this very elegant.
The Balvenie 15 Years Old Single Barrel
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.40% 8 Certainly robust. Perhaps a little harsh?
Rare Malts Glen Ord 1974, 23 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 60.80% 8 Far paler and less sherried than the main version from this distillery. I would like at least some sherry to round the gingery spiciness, but I like the way that rose character comes through in this o...
Rare Malts Glenury Royal 28 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.40% 8 An elegant middleweight after the oak-fisted heavyweight 23 Years Old in the same series.
Highland Park 25 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 48.10% 9 Have this one with dessert.
Blackadder Old Man Of Hoy Single Orcadian Scotch Malt Whisky
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.00% 7 Weak in the middle. Lacks roundness.
Ardbeg 17 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 8 Not the most muscular Ardbeg, but still robust.
Glenmorangie Cognac Matured
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 7 Crisp, but not as characterful as might be hoped.
The Balvenie Vintage Cask 1967
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 9 A beautifully balanced classic Speyside whisky.
Glenfiddich 21 Years Old, Millennium Reserve
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 8 Lighter and more delicate than the 21 Years Old that appeared in a Wedgwood decanter in years past.
Adelphi Shannon Grain Single Malt Irish Whiskey
Single Grain - Ireland - 67.30% 6 Flavoursome for a grain, but neither especially clean nor well rounded.
