Whiskies (35)

A. D. Rattray Stronachie 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 Well balanced and aromatic. Honey is the key element.

A. D. Rattray Whisky Experience 2002 9 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 The palate is more appealing than the nose. A pleasant dram, leaving a fresh feeling. Better neat than diluted.

Cask Collection Bowmore 1998 9 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 62.30%
6 A solid dram. Rough and ready. The malty sweetness helps balancing the high strength. Invigorating.

Cask Collection Cooley 1992 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Republic of Ireland - 58.90%
7 A rich nose and a somewhat restrained palate with an assertive oak print,which the high strength amplifies. But an elegant dryness.

Cask Collection Glenlivet 1977 29 Years old
Single Malt - Scotland - 47.20%
8 A well-balanced dram. The age speaks but it has kept a vigorous freshness.

Cask Collection Macallan
- Scotland - 57.40%
7 A generously proportioned beauty.

Cask Collection Miltonduff
- Scotland - 51.90%
7 Splits into its (often contradictory) component parts.Lacks balance and coherence

Cask Collection Mortlach
- Scotland - 55.50%
7 Highly recommended.

Dewar Rattray 1982 25 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 62.50%
7 Perfect balance. An extremely good Caol Ila. Recommended.

Dewar Rattray Auchentoshan 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.00%
7 A well-balanced dram, as malty as fruity with a luscious toffee tempting character.

Dewar Rattray Auchentoshan 1990, 13 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 60.00%
7 I would never have identified this as an Auchentoshan. Proves 'the Glasgow malt' has plenty of character, but this expression lacks subtlety.

Dewar Rattray Aultmore 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.90%
8 It's not my preferred style of whisky, but this has real class and excellent balance.

Dewar Rattray Balblair 1990
Single Malt - Scotland - 62.90%
7 The strength is a bit aggressive. And oak is not well-integrated. Tastes like a too young fellow.

Dewar Rattray Balblair 1990
Single Malt - Scotland - 61.80%
8 A rich multi layered whisky which, surprisingly, I enjoyed better without water. The latter enhances a bitter tone.

Dewar Rattray Balblair 1990 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 62.90%
7 The nose is more attractive than the palate, rather restrained.

Dewar Rattray Balmenach 26 Years Old 1983
Single Malt - Scotland - 48.20%
4 A complex and vibrant whisky. Like walking in an orchard on a crisp morning. A dram to clear your mind on a dull morning.

Dewar Rattray Ben Nevis 1992 14 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.20%
7 I find it a little grubby.

Dewar Rattray Benriach 15 Years Old, Cask Collection
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.90%
7 Quite an energetic guy which needs water to be tamed. A classic light Speysider, lacking elegance though.

Dewar Rattray Benrinnes 14 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.30%
7 Nose and palate are a bit agressive with a lingering sourness which is disturbing. A prickly character. Water smooths the flavours over but this is not enough.

Dewar Rattray Bowmore 14 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.80%
8 A beautiful Islay malt in a sherry refill dressing. Rich aromatic development, great combination of strength and sweetness.

Dewar Rattray Bowmore 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 52.90%
7 Some of the classic Islay elements are there, but discordant. Not well rounded.

Dewar Rattray Bowmore 17 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 49.60%
7 The nose is more interesting than the palate. A full bodied character which has flirted a bit too long with wood. Might suit cigar palates.

Dewar Rattray Bowmore 1990, 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.70%
8 Straightforward and uncompromising. Very good balance. The classic Islay outdoor dram for simple enjoyment.

Dewar Rattray Bowmore 1990, 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.00%
8 Has richness and some finesse.

Dewar Rattray Bowmore 1991, 14 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.60%
7 Old Bowmore is fascinating: it either becomes light and tropical with no smoke or reduces into this anchovy like concentration.

Dewar Rattray Bruichladdich 1991, 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 60.00%
8 Savoury. Summery. A picnic malt. Or eating freshly shucked oysters with Jim McEwan.

Dewar Rattray Bruichladdich 1993 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.10%
7 Complex, subtle and interesting, but not a dram to stay at home for. Go out, have fun!

Dewar Rattray Bunnahabhain 27 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 49.90%
8 Not as elegant and complex as some in this flight, but the breakfast it evoked was hearty and delicious.

Dewar Rattray Bunnahabhain 35 Years Old 1974
Single Malt - Scotland - 44.30%
7 The nose has got some complexity but the palate is overwhelmed and overdried by spices. It needs water.

Dewar Rattray Caol Ila 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.00%
8 An enticing young beauty. Matches subtlety with character.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Dewar Rattray Caol Ila 1991, 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.70%
8 Fishy yet sweet. Kipper crumble in a hospital anyone?

Dewar Rattray Caperdonich 1980 25 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 53.10%
7 A shy little furry woodland creature peeking out, then hiding again.

Dewar Rattray Cask Collection Strathmill 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 63.50%
7 Whatever its age, this whisky is full of youthful vigour.

Dewar Rattray Craigellachie 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.90%
8 A model of balance and elegance. A first class Speysider.

Dewar Rattray Craigellachie 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.90%
7 On top of a maturation in poor wood, seems to have undergone problems at distillation. Disappointing.
