Portuguese fortified wine from the Douro Valley in the northern provinces of Portugal Port is produced from grapes grown and processed in the Douro region, the wine produced is then fortified with the addition of distilled grape spirits in order to boost the alcohol content. The wine is then stored and aged, often in barrels stored in caves (Portuguese meaning "cellars"). Some of these casks are then used to provide whisky finishes

Hewitts Irish Whiskey
Blended - Ireland - 43.00% 7 Soothing. A touch of more-ish 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?
The Balvenie PortWood 21 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 8 Bring on the petits-fours.
Rare Malts North Port 19 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 61.00% 6 Some malts are deservedly rare, but full marks to United for at least giving us the chance to taste them.
Rare Malts Port Ellen 20 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 60.90% 9 Bring on the caeser salad.
Adelphi Port Ellen 1975, 24 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.00% 8 Seems to have faded slightly with age.
Finlaggan 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 8 As a single, it must come from one of the Islay distilleries. Reminds me of Port Ellen, but there is surely not enough stock of that?
Rare Malts Port Ellen 1978 20 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 60.90% 8 An expressive, arousing, version of this fine malt.
Glenfarclas 40 Years Old, Millennium Edition
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.70% 9 Some of the voluptuousness has sagged with age.
Single Malt - Scotland - 0.00% 7 The fighter beat the boxer, but it was a wonderfully enjoyable contest.
Glenmorangie Port Wood Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 8 Do you smoke after sex? No I have a port finish.
Bushmills 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Ireland - 40.00% 8 All the woods are influential, especially the port in the finish. A dextrous balancing act.
Cragganmore 1984 Distillers Edition, Ruby Port Finish, 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 8 Connoisseurs might miss the austerity of the original – or enjoy the added layer of fruity, winey, sweetness.
The Balvenie 21 Years Old PortWood
Single Malt - Scotland - 47.60% 9 The full, honeyed, richness of the malt combines beautifully with what seems to be a generous kiss of port.
Single Malt - Scotland - 0.00% 9 The fighter beat the boxer, but it was a wonderfully enjoyable contest.
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.
Blanton's Original Bourbon
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 49.50% 8 A bourbon with dessert.
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.00% 8 Port often leaves a toffeeish note, but not in this case. Perhaps needs a bit more maturity.
Cadenhead's Lochside 19 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 60.90% 8 This was never a great distillery but it made some perfectly pleasant whiskies and its loss is to be regretted. This bottling is past its best but obviously has rarity value.
Glenmorangie Malaga Wood Finish, 25 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 8 Reminiscent of the port finish but slightly gutsier and less sophisticated. I would love to try it, tapas-style, with Manchego, or perhaps Grazelema, cheese.
Royal Lochnagar Selected Reserve
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 7 Too firm and well proportioned to be deemed voluptuous – but it's a delightfully close call.
Bushmills 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Ireland - 40.00% 8 Is the house character overwhelmed by the three woods (bourbon, sherry and port)? I'll give it the benefit of the doubt.
Rare Malts Port Ellen 1978 22 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 60.50% 9 Pungent, powerful and appetising. A dram for the Islay-lover and connoisseur. This distillery should be revived.
Connemara Peated Single Malt
Single Malt - Ireland - 40.00% 8 Lots happening. Chimney pots of smoke. I love this whiskey.
The Macallan Fifties
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 8 Closest to The Macallan of today, appropriately enough.
