Aberfeldy 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 8 Refreshing and light-hearted. Almost too playful to take seriously.
The Macallan 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 3 The finish does have the same effortless charm as the ‘46 or the 25 Years Old. Sensational nose.
Highland Park 1977 Bicentenary Vintage Reserve
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 4 A great malt: luxurious, profound, full of the flavours of Scotland
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?
Connoisseur's Choice Bladnoch 1986
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 7 The light touch of sherry helps bring out the soft, fruity, flavours.
The Glenlivet 1967 Vintage
Single Malt - Scotland - 53.32% 8 Lots of flavour development. I enjoyed this one.
Cadenhead's Rosebank 1989, 9 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 8 All of the characteristic floweriness of Rosebank, but with some roundness.
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.
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.
Inishowen Blended Whiskey
Blended - Ireland - 40.00% 7 More complex, and fuller in flavour, than many Irish blends. Very well balanced. Just a hint of a Scottish accent.
The Balvenie 10 Years Old, Founder's Reserve
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 8 The most honeyish of Speyside malts?
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.
Glenfiddich 18 Years Old, Ancient Reserve
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 8 Scores points for sophistication and sherry character.
The Balvenie 12 Years Old, Double Wood
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 9 Yet richer, and fruitier.
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...
Highland Park 1977 Bicentenary Vintage Reserve
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 9 After that voluptuous dinner.
Gordon & MacPhail Scapa 1987
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 7 A complex, delicate, well-balanced vintage.
Single Malt - Ireland - 40.00% 8 Tightly combined flavours. Delicate. Elegant.
Glenfiddich 1967, Vintage Reserve
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 8 On the light side among older Glenfiddichs, but delicate and appetising.
The Balvenie Vintage Cask 1967
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 9 A beautifully balanced classic Speyside whisky.
Glen Moray 16 Years Old, Chenin Blanc Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 8 Less delicate and scenty, but more satisfying. More wine, but more of everything else.
Adelphi Slaney Single Malt Irish Whiskey
Single Malt - Ireland - 0.00% 7 Pleasant, soothing, sociable.
Glenmorangie Madeira Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 0.00% 8 The madeira almost overwhelms the whisky, but the Glenmorangie saltiness finally sings.
