Whiskies (9)
Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

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.

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.

Gordon & MacPhail Inverleven 1985
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Not much complexity, but an unusually summery whisky.

Gordon & MacPhail Inverleven 1986
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
6 Light, straightforward. Delicacy without mannerism. Keep it for a romantic candlelit dinner.

Gordon & MacPhail Inverleven 1990, 40 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 0.00%
7 The nose is appealing but the palate far tougher. Water eases the release of grassy notes. But the aromatic profile keeps shallow.

Inverleven 17 Years Old
- Scotland - 40.00%
8 My summer drink already and it's barely spring.

Inverleven 1979 27 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.10%
7 This whisky definitely needs water to extinguish the fire. Would have benefited from a bottling at a lower strength.

Inverleven Deoch an Dora 1973
Single Malt - Scotland - 48.50%
8 A charming thirst-quencher. No water please. It is perfect straight.
