Aberfeldy 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 8 Refreshing and light-hearted. Almost too playful to take seriously.
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 8 A little more roundness would have been appreciated.
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.
Glenfiddich 15 Years Old, Solera Reserve
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 8 Elegant. Well-balanced to the point of suavity.
Glenmorangie Fino Sherry Wood Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 0.00% 8 The light saltiness in a coastal whisky and near-coastal sherry make this a delight.
Aberlour 1988, Distiller's Selection
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 7 An astonishingly malty whisky. For someone who wants to taste the eponymous ingredient, this shows it at its best.
Aberlour 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 8 More sophisticated, especially in the finish. Better balanced, but less voluptuous maltiness.
The Glenlivet 1968 Vintage
Single Malt - Scotland - 52.75% 8 Has the complexity I expect from The Glenlivet.
The Glenlivet 1969 Vintage
Single Malt - Scotland - 52.20% 8 A little woody.
The Glenlivet 1972 Vintage
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.29% 8 A little woody. Choice of cask?
Connoisseur's Choice Bladnoch 1986
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 7 The light touch of sherry helps bring out the soft, fruity, flavours.
Connoisseur's Choice Rosebank 1988
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 8 A deft balance between the whisky's own character and the sherry.
Glenkinchie 1986 Amontillado cask finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 8 As a relatively restrained whisky, Glenkinchie stands up well to the amontillado finish.
Murray McDavid Rosebank 1990, Sherry Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 8 The flowery youth of the whisky and the freshness of the sherry cask achieve an interesting harmony.
The Glenlivet 1967 Vintage
Single Malt - Scotland - 53.32% 8 Lots of flavour development. I enjoyed this one.
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.60% 8 A dark, luxurious, post-prandial whisky from a distillery that is producing an increasing, and impressive range.
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.
Redbreast 12 Years Old
Blended - Ireland - 40.00% 9 Delicious, soothing, contemplative. A great whiskey. Makes me want to get on a plane to Dublin immediately.
Tullamore Dew 12 Years Old
Blended - Ireland - 40.00% 7 Flirtatious, but not a lot to say for itself.
Blended - Ireland - 43.00% 8 Long one of my great favourites. In composition, it is the the simplest of blends, yet it demonstrates how malt can someimes be enhanced by a leavening of grain.
Millars Special Reserve
Blended - Ireland - 40.00% 7 Perfectly pleasant but very light in flavours.
Crested Ten Irish Whiskey, 10 Years Old
Blended - Ireland - 40.00% 7 This is a highly respected ‘sophisticated' whiskey, but it has never done anything for me. Good sherry character, but the whiskey itself is just too thin in the middle. I find it unbalanced.
Hewitts Irish Whiskey
Blended - Ireland - 43.00% 7 Soothing. A touch of more-ish dryness.
The Balvenie 10 Years Old, Founder's Reserve
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 8 The most honeyish of Speyside malts?
Pittyvaich 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 6 Pittyvaich has always seemed a bit spirity to me, like a Scottish grappa. This version is softened slightly by the sherry.
