Whiskies (35)

Ballechin Edradour Burgundy matured
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 It is young and showing great promise. Keep watching this with interest.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Big Peat
Blended Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 The smoke is omnipresent. A thick curtain which unveils luscious malty notes though. Islay on the nose and on the tongue.

Clan Denny Port Dundas 1978 34 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.60%
8 A belter of a grain with typical Port Dundas funkiness.

Clan Denny Speyside Blended Malt
Blended Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 I've no idea how you can distil a garden shed, but they've done it. Highly evocative - if weird.

Double Barrel Mortlach/Laphroaig
Blended Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Lovely tussle between the two elements. A lot of fun.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Douglas Laing Ardbeg 1992 12 Years Old, Rum Finish, Park Avenue Liquors
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
8 With smoked salmon and a squeeze of lemon.

Douglas Laing Benrinnes 1990 14 Years Old, Single Cask Sherry Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
7 Beautifully full flavoured whisky. Manages to be both elegant and robustly expressive. Very appetising.

Douglas Laing Bladnoch 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
7 Not a very exciting whisky. Too edgy. Not delivering much on the palate. And lacking finesse. A bland cask?

Douglas Laing Bladnoch 22 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
8 Good balance of the fruity acidity and sweeter juicy notes.

Douglas Laing Bowmore 20 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
8 Bowmore is a great malt. Let's see more of it in straightforward ages.

Douglas Laing Caol Ila 1979 25 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
8 An attractive character. Phenolic but with much more.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Douglas Laing Caol Ila 1979 26 Years Old, The Whisky Fair
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.20%
8 Should have been taken out of the cask a few years back. Easy to say now of course.

Douglas Laing Dallas Dhu 24 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
7 Much more herbal than other bottlings of Dallas Dhu.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Douglas Laing Highland Park 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
8 For the end of the evening. Of considerable complexity and will require several attempts before it's cracked. Not for everyone.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Douglas Laing Laphroaig 15 Years Old, 1987
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
8 A lean and lively Laphroaig, more smoky than seaweedy. The flavours are long and persistent. Enjoyable, more-ish and appetising.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Douglas Laing Laphroaig 16 Years Old, Limburg Whisky Fair Bottling
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.10%
8 At first, I did not recognise this as a Laphroaig. Then I thought that age must have muted its attack, but 16 is scarcely venerable. Can a whisky be an old fogey?

Douglas Laing Laphroaig 17 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
3 An unusual Laphroaig. No trace of the medicinal character. Water brings out sweet malty notes and more smoke. Why such a difference? Cask influence? Different peating level in the malt? Puzzling.

Douglas Laing Linkwood 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
7 A classic malty beast. Well balanced. A winter warmer to enjoy with nuts and crispy nibbles.

Douglas Laing Mortlach 1992 12 Years Old, Sherry Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
7 Urbane. Austere.

Douglas Laing Port Ellen 25 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
8 Forget your herbal tea. Go for this fantastic Islay potion!

Douglas Laing Rosebank 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
7 A straightforward refreshing dram. To be sipped on a summer afternoon. I would easily drop one or two ice cubes in my glass.

Douglas Laing Rosebank 1974 20 Years Old, The Whisky Fair
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.80%
7 Who needs afternoon tea?

Douglas Laing St Magadalene 23 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
7 Interesting but a sweet note too far maybe but the finish gets a grip on itself and leaves a clean minty freshness. Recommended for sweet tooth.

Douglas Laing The Macallan 16 Years Old, Burgundy Finish, The Vintage House
Single Malt - Scotland - 0.00%
7 A real finesse, some thinness too. But Twiggy was a popular model in her time, wasn't she?

Douglas of Drumlanrig Craigellachie 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 The palate confirms the nose with dominant oak. Water tends to tone the wood down a little. It lacks balance for me. But those who like oakiness will enjoy.

Old & Rare Brora
- Scotland - 55.10%
7 Not the biggest Brora but a good one.

Old & Rare Brora 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.50%
7 A bold character,delivering the whole package at once.Keeps spirity to the finish. Water cuts the edges but still tooharsh for me.

Old & Rare Caol Ila 28 Years Old 1979
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.60%
7 Good but pretty tired.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Old & Rare Highland Park 29 Years Old 1978
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.70%
8 Old, slightly grumbly but fascinating. Highly recommended.

Old & Rare Lochnagar, 33 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.20%
7 Full but very well balanced for such an ancient character.

Old & Rare Platinum Ben Nevis
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.00%
7 Just about holds its own against the effects of excessive age. On the cusp!

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Old & Rare Platinum Glen Garioch 35 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.00%
8 This has lasted superbly for its age, proof that Glen Garioch is a seriously impressive malt, one that improves with lengthy maturation.

Old & Rare Platinum Millburn 34 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.90%
7 Luxurious. An adult taste.

Old & Rare Platinum The Macallan 1977 27 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 51.00%
8 This is a very decent example of an independent bottling.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Old & Rare Platinum The Macallan, 28 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 48.20%
8 Have this without water. Hinting at complexity.
