Funny Themes
Private labelling of whisky is as old as bottling whisky itself. It started with the blenders who would give their own names to the whiskies purchased from different distilleries, hence the Dewars, Bu...

Operation Moonlight
Your attention please. To say that Tennessee is home to one or two unique whiskies is to say nothing new, but to experience one on home ground must be worth, surely, a flicker of interest. To do so in...

The Sensory World

Glenfiddich Malt Whisky Liqueur
- Scotland - 0.00%
3 A mid-evening treat when the open fire is glowing and the family gathered.

Glenkinchie 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 I always enjoy this whisky, even though it is not the most typical of Lowlanders.

The Glenlivet 1968 Vintage
Single Malt - Scotland - 52.75%
8 Has the complexity I expect from The Glenlivet.

The Glenlivet 1972 Vintage
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.29%
8 A little woody. Choice of cask?

Glenkinchie 1986 Amontillado cask finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 As a relatively restrained whisky, Glenkinchie stands up well to the amontillado finish.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

The Glenlivet 1967 Vintage
Single Malt - Scotland - 53.32%
8 Lots of flavour development. I enjoyed this one.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 45.20%
8 Perhaps encouraged by the dark orange colour, the descriptors sound sweet, but the overall effect is one of flowery dryness, with great finesse.

Locke's Single Malt
Single Malt - Ireland - 40.00%
7 Beautifully balanced with toasted dryness.

Drambuie Black Ribbon, 15 Years Old
- Scotland - 40.00%
5 Substantially darker, bigger, fruitier, drier, firmer, more structured and less syrupy than the Drambuie without the ribbon.

Rare Malts Dufftown-Glenlivet 1975, 21 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.80%
8 Pale in colour but by no means anaemic in flavour. Has matured a lot since it was 15.

Glenmorangie 12 Years Old, Millennium Malt
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 Very evident first-fill Bourbon character.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Glenmorangie Original
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 Made when the distillery had its own maltings, and an eloquent advocate for such an arrangement.

Glenmorangie Cognac Matured
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 Crisp, but not as characterful as might be hoped.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glenmorangie 12 Years Old, Millennium Malt
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 The earlier, and less expensive, of two millennium bottlings. In this one, the emphasis is on first-fill bourbon barrels.

Highland (Dalmore)
- Scotland - 46.00%
7 Not firing fully yet

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glenmorangie Madeira Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 0.00%
8 The madeira almost overwhelms the whisky, but the Glenmorangie saltiness finally sings.

Glenmorangie Port Wood Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 Do you smoke after sex? No I have a port finish.

Formidable Jock Blended Scotch Whisky
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
5 Overwhelmed by sugary sweetness.

Cutty Sark Original Scots
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
6 The flavours are tightly combined. I imagine exploring them late at night in a vaguely disreputable bar in the tropics. Perhaps it's the name.

Johnnie Walker Red Label
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Full of youthful daring, but with enough stamina to last all night (this means that you and your buddy will probably drink the whole bottle).

Dewar's White Label
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
6 Decisive, cleansing and refreshing. A civilised apéritif before oysters Rockefeller and a New York strip steak.

Cadenhead's Bourbon 5 Years Old
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 63.00%
6 Just too woody for me, though a good splash of water brings out the other flavours.

Hancock's President's Reserve
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 44.45%
8 Liked that spicy-lemon rye character, but lacking in complexity and roundness.

Jack Daniel's Gentleman Jack
Tennessee - U.S.A. - 40.00%
7 A slightly richer and more restrained interpretation of Jack Daniel's.

Loch Lomond Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Very sweet. Definitely a dessert whisky.
