Cocktail Articles

Port

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

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.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

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.
