Cadenhead's 10 Years Old, Bourbon
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 45.00% 9 I especially like bourbons when they are big and robust. This is both hearty and complex. A wonderful winter warmer.
Cadenhead's 13 Years Old, Bourbon
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 65.90% 7 Despite this being older, it is less astringently woody than the similar five-year-old.
Cadenhead's Allt-a-Bhainne 1992, 9 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.40% 7 A rare opportunity to serve this summery whisky.
Cadenhead's America Bourbon
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 62.20% 7 Has an extra dimension. Recommended.
Cadenhead's Banff 24 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.30% 6 The best Banff I have tasted. Shows its age but the finish reveals real depth and staying power.
Cadenhead's Ben Nevis 1986, 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 61.90% 7 Hard to guess at the high alcohol strength from the nose. Not the usual big, oily Ben Nevis character. A pleasant fruitiness keeps the sweet notes dominant.
Cadenhead's Benromach 1976, 27 Years Old Authentic Collection
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.10% 8 The nose promised more smoothness. Quite an austere character on the palate but with a lot of class.
Cadenhead's Bladnoch 1980, 17 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 0.00% 7 Slightly lean. Where is the fruity softness of Bladnoch?
Cadenhead's Bladnoch 1989, 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.30% 7 A neat, summery comforter. Perfect dram for hillwalkers.
Cadenhead's Bladnoch 1989, 13 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.90% 7 Tired and irritable when first poured, but gradually opens up, more so when water was added.
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.
Cadenhead's Canadian Indian Corn 15 Years Old
Single Grain - Canada - 54.90% 7 Quite young and green, with a nice fresh tang, especially when diluted. But this cardboardy flavour hangs on.
Cadenhead's Caol Ila 9 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 7 Youthfully powerful. Almost raw flavours, without being in any way spirity. Many Islay-lovers enjoy their whiskies young. This is a robust example.
Cadenhead's Caperdonich 1977, 24 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 7 Heavily sherried. Rich and full-bodied but the distillery character is hidden by the wood. For the sherry fanatic.
Cadenhead's Classic Range Campbeltown
Blended Malt - Scotland - 50.00% 7 Seems simple at first, but gradually reveals subtleties. Stylish, teasing.
Cadenhead's Classic Range, Highland
Blended Malt - Scotland - 50.00% 7 How nice this would be with one of those tasteful desserts that involves a ‘sugar nest' and some fresh fruit.
Cadenhead's Classic Range, Islay
Blended Malt - Scotland - 50.00% 7 You can see why the Germans get so obsessed with this stuff. A peaty happy-slap.
Cadenhead's Clynelish 14 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.60% 7 Firm, dry, confident. Not quite as expressive as the best bottlings.
Cadenhead's Convalmore 1977, 21 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 64.40% 7 The best Convalmore I have tasted, with the typically big, fruity syrupiness. After dinner.
Cadenhead's Convalmore-Glenlivet 26 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 61.40% 7 A welcome opportunity to taste a rare whisky, though it was never a classic, and in this instance is over the hill (or the Conval Hills?).
Cadenhead's Cooley, World Whiskies 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Ireland - 60.00% 8 This is some bottling; great distillate matured to perfection in excellent casks. One for the Islay bore in your life.
Cadenhead's Craigellachie Glenlivet 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.30% 7 Saved by the water and though too insubtantial to get a high mark would make a good aperitif.
Cadenhead's Dallas Dhu 23 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 60.80% 8 I think I have discovered a breakfast whisky. They can call it Dallas Dhu. I'll dub it "Death in the Morning. "
Cadenhead's Dalmore 13 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.90% 8 Extraordinarily sweet-but an engaging curiosity. This pale, golden Dalmore, without the sherry, has an especially characteristic touch of amontillado.
Cadenhead's Dalmore 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.50% 7 Quite a light character for a Highland malt. Water helps but still a bit rough. Even on a frosty morning!
Cadenhead's Dumbarton (Inverleven Stills) 18 Years Old
Single Grain - Scotland - 57.90% 8 A great delicacy but the strength needs to be put down by a good dash of water. But it is not enough to cut all the edges off.
Cadenhead's Dumbarton 1969, Sherry Wood
Single Grain - Scotland - 51.20% 8 Bossily buoyant. Loses in delicacy what it gains in flavour and texture. Miles away from the Lowlands.
Cadenhead's Glen Ord 19 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.00% 7 ‘Born on' dates are not a big issue when John Barleycorn must die, yet this whisky seems to have an especially fresh maltiness. A refreshing dram for the sultry suns of summer.
Cadenhead's Glencraig 1981, 21 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.20% 7 Pleasant, sociable. With mint tea and Moroccan food?
Cadenhead's Glendronach 13 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.40% 7 Drier and less rich than the distillery bottlings.
Cadenhead's Glenglassaugh 25 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.20% 7 Glenglassaugh can be malty, and this one is. It stands up very well for it's age. In this bottling, with an apricot colour that suggests sherry, very much a dessert whisky.
Cadenhead's Glenglassaugh 26 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 51.10% 7 This has dried out to a point where it is aggressive and unbalanced.
Cadenhead's Glenturret 1986, 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.00% 7 A charming whisky, and a reminder that Glenturret is a place, not an experience.
Cadenhead's Heaven Hill 15 Years Old
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 62.40% 7 Fifteen years is quite old for a bourbon, but this is complex, rounded and a good example of Heaven Hill's style. Keeps the sweet notes dominant.
Cadenhead's Imperial Glenlivet 1977, 24 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.60% 7 A robust whisky that deserves more exposure.
