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
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.
Highland Park 1977 Bicentenary Vintage Reserve
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 9 After that voluptuous dinner.
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.
Deanston 17 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 7 Gentle, but quite succulent.
Adelphi Glenlossie 1981
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.00% 8
Glenturret 18 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 8 Liqueur-ish. With dessert?
Bailie Nicol Jarvie
Blended - Scotland - 40.00% 8 Demanding and stern. Take some time to understand it. A complex whisky as it reveals its secrets.
Clan Campbell Highlander 12 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00% 7 Rounded. On the sweet side.
Scottish Leader Platinum Seal
Blended - Scotland - 40.00% 7 Remarkably fruity, but in a lively interplay with all the other elements.
The Balvenie Islay Cask, 17 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 8 Reminiscent of the days when Speysiders were peatier.
The Macallan 10 Years Old, Cask Strength
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.80% 8 With its distinctly reddish chestnut colour, this is clearly well sherried. An uncomplicated, robust, Macallan. Simply delicious.
Old Forester 86 Proof Kentucky Bourbon
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 43.00% 7 Easy drinking, but worth more than a moment's thought.
Eagle Rare 17 Years Old
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 45.00% 7 Some interesting flavours, with lots of dimensions, but no balance or structure. I'm not wild about Angel Delight.
Pappy Van Winkle 20 Years Old, Family Reserve
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 45.20% 8 Showing its age, but I like its big, earthy, old-fashioned American flavours.
W.L. Weller 12 Years Old
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 45.00% 8 Lots of layers. A great dessert whiskey. Thanksgiving dinner?
Forty Creek Three Grain
Blended - Canada - 40.00% 7 In palate, the closer of the two to the Canadian tradition. Wins points for that attribute. I could drink quite a few of these.
Signatory Highland Park 1988
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 8 A lovely whisky. A sweetish bottling. More complex and elegant than the 'official' 12 Years Old, but not quite as expressive as the 18.
William Grant's Ale Cask Reserve
Blended - Scotland - 40.00% 7 Fresh and seductively drinkable. I'm astonished how well this innovation worked. The ale was brewed especially to add much more malty sweetness than hop.
The Macallan Replica, 1861
Single Malt - Scotland - 42.70% 8 Quite an achievement. Like the previous 'replica' edition, this is more delicate than the robustly sherried Macallans of today.
Glen Darbach 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 7 Approachable – even amiable – but with some substance. Wintery flavours that are warming without being challenging.
Talisker 1975, 25 Years Old, Cask Strength
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.90% 9 Less instantly explosive than the regular 10. The flavours in the 25 are more tightly combined and take longer to unfold. You pays your money...
Bowmore 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 8 Glad to see a Bowmore with an age rather than a brand-name.
Private Collection Imperial 1990 Sherry Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 7 The flavours hang together better in this version, and I favour it over the port finish, but by too narrow a margin to score.
