The Glenlivet 1972 Vintage
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.29% 8 A little woody. Choice of cask?
Locke's Single Malt
Single Malt - Ireland - 40.00% 7 Beautifully balanced with toasted dryness.
Banff 1966, 31 Years Old, Old Malt Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00% 7 Banff was never a classic, but it is an evocatively old-fashioned Highland malt, and it has stood up reasonably well to great age.
Glendullan 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 8 Very pale indeed. Wood a little worse for wear. Has a hard edge, but becomes silky and disrobes quite sexily.
Glen Moray 12 Years Old, Chenin Blanc Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 7 Smooth body, beeswax-like. The wine adds an element, but many loyalists will miss the previous version.
The Glenlivet 12 Years Old, French Oak Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 8 The oak does not dominate, but is quite powerful for such an elegant malt.
Oban Distillers Edition, Montilla
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 8 Demonstrably an evocative whisky. Salty and winey, but neither as overt as in the comparable Glenmorangie Fino.
Glenmorangie Sherry Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 8 Quite heavily sherried, but the distillery character turns out to be surprisingly resilient.
Chivas Regal 12 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00% 8 The flavours tail off, as though the whisky is going to sleep. Smooth and easy, but lacks liveliness. Springtime never quite blossoms into summer.
Wild Turkey Rare Breed
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 54.20% 9 This is more like a supercharged Wild One. Defiantly robust, but with Devilish charm. I love it.
Glenturret 21 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 8 After dinner.
Ladyburn 1973, 27 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.40% 6 I am pleased that this very rare malt has been made available. Ladyburn is a product about which I am frequently asked. Sad to say, its greatest appeal is as a collector's item.
Old Pulteney 15 Years Old, Sherry Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 8 If you like whisky on your therapeutic porridge (and who doesn't?) this is the salty one.
Kingsbury Glencadam 1971, 28 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.60% 7 Lacks roundness, structure, balance. I was sorry to hear that this distillery has been closed. Temporarily?
The Glenlivet 1967 Cellar Collection
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 9 The Glenlivet is the fruitiest, most flowery and most delicate.
Private Collection Imperial 1990 Claret Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 8 The wine seems to have made common cause with the juicy sweetness, and the two have overwhelmed the cereal-grain and peat smoke that usually make this a more robust malt. This version would be a good ...
Chivas Regal 12 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00% 7 Delicately balanced. Clean. Drinkable. There is an element of luxury, but never quite the frisson of luxury that the marketing implies.
Whyte & Mackay 12 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00% 8 Do you have a sweet tooth? Verges on the liqueur-ish.
Johnnie Walker Black Label
Blended - Scotland - 40.00% 9 Deceptively gentle at first. I have on occasion been completely led astray by what seems to be mildness of this whisky, then taken on a journey of rediscovery. I find new flavours every time.
Scotch Malt Whisky Society Glenlivet 24 Years Old, 2.35
Single Malt - Scotland - 61.00% 7 A heavily sherried whisky that is nonetheless surprisingly lively for its age.
The Glenlivet 12 Years Old American Oak Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 7 Lacks the subtlety of a more conventional Glenlivet, but will charm some consumers with a richer, creamier, style. Very drinkable indeed.
The Macallan Twenties
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 8 Despite a relatively full colour, suggesting plenty of sherry, the Macallan flavours shine through. The driest of these bottlings.
Wild Turkey 10 Years Old, Russell's Reserve
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 50.50% 8 Slightly austere and cerebral. One to sip while watching a video of an art-house movie.
Jefferson's Reserve 15 Years Old
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 45.10% 8 Stylish and disarming, but not to be taken lightly. Reminds me of Kentucky's greatest boxer.
Sam Houston Very Small Batch 10 Years Old
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 45.00% 7 An attractive, tawny, colour and a good, straight-ahead, whiskey. Could be more complex at ten years. Ideal with a Texas barbecue?
