Cock o' the North Liqueur Single Malt Whisky Liqueur
- Scotland - 35.00% 3 The less obviously whiskyish of these two liqueurs.
The Glenlivet 1970 Vintage
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.58% 8 Enjoyable, but I expected a little more.
Rock Hill Farm Single Cask Bourbon
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 50.00% 8 The flavours may sound similar but it is the interplay of their subtleties that make this such an interesting whiskey. Try it with a double chocolate-chip cookie. Or a rocky road icecream.
Deanston 17 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 7 Gentle, but quite succulent.
Glen Deveron 1987, 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 7 Slightly less richness and wood-extract than in the 12, with which I am more familiar.
The Dalmore 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 8 Said to be married in sherry butts. In this instance, marriage certainly works.
Glen Moray 1981 Single Sherry Butt
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.70% 7 The richness of the whisky more than balances the slight woodiness. This is delicious. Glen Moray with maturity-and dimension-than we can usually experience.
Scotch Malt Whisky Society The Macallan 11 Years Old, 24.48
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.80% 7 It is always interesting to taste a Macallan that is less sherried than usual. This one could have been rounder.
Forty Creek Barrel Select
Blended - Canada - 40.00% 8 The richest-tasting Canadian whisky I have tasted. Wins points for luxury.
Canadian Club Classic 12 Years Old
Blended - Canada - 40.00% 7 That medicinal touch gives this whisky an appetising edge.
Crown Royal Special Reserve
Blended - Canada - 40.00% 8 Much more character.
Gibson's Finest 12 Years Old
Blended - Canada - 40.00% 7 Pleasant and well-balanced, with a freshness and confidence.
Girvan Single Grain 1964
Single Grain - Scotland - 48.00% 8 I've always had a soft spot for this distillery's Black Barrel, and I like this version even more. Not very complex – but it is a grain whisky.
Seagram's VO GOld 8 Years Old
Blended - Canada - 40.00% 8 Light and delicate, but beautifully composed.
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?
Lot 40 Pot Still Single Canadian
Rye - Canada - 43.00% 7 Rich, sweet, liqueur-like. I would like to get to know this one better.
Linkwood 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 7 Linkwood always evokes thoughts of sweetmeats. This one seems a particularly sweet interpetation.
Tamnavulin 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 7 Very much as I remember it. Fresh, attractive.
Eagle Rare 10 Years Old
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 45.00% 7 Slightly less sweet than the last bottling I tasted.
Private Collection Glenlivet 1943
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.00% 8 The Glenlivet is another whisky that I have encountered at great ages, often past their best. This shows its age only in its raffish, extrovert, confidence.
Mackillop's Choice Tomatin 1975, Cask 4
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.20% 7 Perhaps because the distillery was built to make quantity, as a filler, the industry seems universally – but unfairly – to deny the possibility of Tomatin making a truly interesting single. I coul...
Ballantine's 12 Years Old, Pure Malt
Blended Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 7 Elegantly restrained. An excellent pure malt for socialising.
Gordon & MacPhail Pride of Orkney 12 Years Old
Blended Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 7 Very fragrant on the nose but more restrained in the mouth. Needs time to perk up.
Signatory Glenturret 1985
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.40% 7 Original bunch of flavours that Towser and her descendants would have enjoyed.
McDowell's Single Malt
Single Malt - India - 42.80% 6 Somewhat one-dimensional.
