Whiskies (35)

Auld Reekie 10 Years Old
- Scotland - 46.00%
7 Underplayed and understated and all the more interesting for it. Aperitif.

Auld Reekie 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 A drinkable, if relatively undemanding whisky. Perhaps a good introduction to Islay.

Battlehill Auchentoshan
- Scotland - 43.00%
7 Very sulphury nose which knocks the scoreback. For me this needs more time in cask just to lose that element.

Battlehill Imperial 8 Years Old
- Scotland - 43.00%
7 Rumour has it that Chivas is going to get this up and running again..if not, then sell it to someone who cares!

Black Bull 12 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 50.00%
8 A pleasant dram. On the fruit side.

Black Bull 12 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 50.00%
Rich and balanced.

Black Bull 12 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.20%
Long and serious.

Black Bull 40 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.20%
8 A delicate yet full of character old whisky. Like walking in a flower garden at springtime.

Black Bull 40 Years Old 3rd Release
Blended - Scotland - 41.50%
8 A classic old Speysider? Mature and lively at the same time. Really a perfect achievement.

Black Bull 40 Years Old Batch No. 2
Blended - Scotland - 41.90%
9 A pure beauty. The age without the wrinkles...

Black Bull Special Reserve
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.60%
8 It's all quite subtle, but rewarding.

Black Bull Special Reserve
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
3 ?A dash of water cuts the edges but weakens the aromas. A well balanced whisky, hesitating between sweet and sour but finally choosing the latter.

Dimension Dimensions Linkwood 1986 25 years old
Single Malt - Scotland - 47.20%
8 A good example of Bourbon cask maturation (a refill ?). There is a constant bitterness but it is quite refreshing, like a grapefruit. A few drops of water bring out a sweet note.

Dimensions Dimension Glenburgie 1985 26 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.20%
8 An enticing nose and lively palate. I prefer it neat than diluted as I think water cuts too many edges... Try it to your taste!

Dimensions Linkwood 1990 22 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 48.70%
8 ?That sweet fruit note persists. Mango coulis, more runny honey, peaches and cream. It has an almost liqueur like cling to the palate. Vanilla and nutmeg.

Dimensions Mortlach 1989 22 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 52.10%
7 A good example of mature Mortlach character without the close attentions of oak.

Dimensions Strathmill 1990
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.00%
7 A very dry dram, with some interesting fruity moments.

Duncan Taylor 1972 35 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 53.50%
8 A fruit basket ! Needs water to keep alcohol quiet. Quiet a restless fellow. The nose delivers layers of fruit.

Duncan Taylor 1982 25 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.40%
7 Very strange. The nose and palate are miles apart.

Duncan Taylor Bowmore 22 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 62.50%
1 An almost unpeated version of Bowmore? A (too) perfect integration of peat in wood? Unusual.

Duncan Taylor Bruichladdich 1969, 33 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 48.70%
8 Good balance – has stood up to its cask well, retaining a zest not overwhelmed by age.

Duncan Taylor Bunnahabhain 1969, 36 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.70%
7 Hasn't held up for its age anything like as well as the previous thirty-something Bruichladdich. The cask has won this battle.

Duncan Taylor Caperdonich 1969 34 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 41.00%
7 Quite engaging, but just past its best.

Duncan Taylor Caperdonich 33 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 41.90%
7 A well knitted dram. On the fruit side. More complex than it appears. Oak is well integrated. A pity such a treasure is lost!

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Duncan Taylor Glen Garioch 1988
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.60%
8 Has the X factor.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Duncan Taylor Glen Garioch 1988, 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.10%
8 Very sweet but the classic heather honey is balanced by the gently peaty, smoky dryness that has vanished from most Highland malts.

Duncan Taylor Glen Grant 1970, Speyside Region Selection No 2
Single Malt - Scotland - 51.70%
7 A lot of cask here but strangely subtle for such a heavy beast.

Duncan Taylor Glen Grant 31 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 42.40%
7 A reticent nose is completely eclipsed by a huge but uncomplicated palate. Benefits greatly from water.

Duncan Taylor Glen Grant C3490 Cask Strength Rare Auld Scotch Whisky
Single Malt - Scotland - 49.70%
8 Elegant and sophisticated.

Duncan Taylor Glen Keith 1971 33 Years Old, Cask 8066
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.80%
7 An old fellow on the edge of declining but with attractive sweet richness. No water, please!

Duncan Taylor Glenrothes Octave Range 40 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.80%
9 Give it time. Balanced, complex and recommended.

Duncan Taylor Invergordon 1965 38 Years Old
Single Grain - Scotland - 50.10%
7 Such a long ageing has made the bourbon wood very dominating. The crisp, cleansing, hint of pine in the distillery bottling better suited a single grain.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Duncan Taylor Invergordon 40 Years Old
Single Grain - Scotland - 50.30%
8 An interesting profile. Well matured. The butyric note on the nose does not echo on the palate.

Duncan Taylor Invergordon 40 Years Old
Single Grain - Scotland - 49.00%
7 Want to get bourbon drinkers into whisky, give ‘em grain! Maybe not 40 Years Old grain but it could be the way in.

Duncan Taylor Inverleven 26 Years Old, Cask 1873
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.10%
8 An interesting character. Much sweeter on the palate than expected from the nose. Water brings out an unpleasant cardboardy touch.
