Drumguish Highland Scotch Whisky
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 7 A newish distillery, so this whisky is still on the young side, but I like its old-fashioned grassy-peaty flavours.
Scott's Selection Ardmore
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.10% 7 Not a model of subtlety but a well-knitted character, in the light heavyweight category.
Scott's Selection Aultmore 1982 29 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.40% 8 Well-made and well-matured.
Scott's Selection Craigellachie 1991 20 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.80% 8 Starts off nosing younger than its years, but grows into itself with time.
Scott's Selection Dailuane 1983 28 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.80% 7 Marked down slightly for an undistinguished nose.
Scott's Selection Glenallachie 1993 19 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.60% 7 The nose is pleasant but the alcohol makes it too sharp. The same with the palate. The cask has not mellowed it enough.
Scott's Selection Glenlivet 31 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.50% 7 A decent Glenlivet.
Scott's Selection Glenrothes 1986 25 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 51.70% 7 A little underwhelming.
Scott's Selection Highland Park 20 Years Old 1981
Single Malt - Scotland - 48.50% 8 What a great dram! Complex and beaming. I like it better neat.
Scott's Selection Inchmurrin 1997
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.30% 7 A strangely closed nose, with a very vibrant, fruit driven palate.
Scott's Selection Invergordon 1964 47 Years Old
Single Grain - Scotland - 43.80% 8 An enticing oldie. But I bet it was in a better shape a few years ago.
Scott's Selection Macallan 1989 23 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00% 8 A lovely dram, straightforward and lively.
Scott's Selection North British 1974
Single Grain - Scotland - 53.10% 7 A pleasant summer whisky.
Scott's Selection North British 1989 22 Years Old
Single Grain - Scotland - 54.00% 7 Definitely on the sweet side. The alcohol is well mastered. A bit uni-dimensional though. Water does not bring out much more.
Scott's Selection North of Scotland, 1963
Single Grain - Scotland - 46.80% 7 Very rich for a grain whisky. Not much dimension. No flavour peaks.
Scott's Selection The Speyside 1993
Single Malt - Scotland - 61.50% 7 The touches of rubber are a little disappointment, but the other notes make up for any indiscretions.
Scott's Selection Tomatin 1988 23 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.60% 7 A dram which needs time to open. Good balance, some complexity and firm body.
Scott's Selection Tomatin 1993
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.00% 7 Quite a limited palate, but really pleasant enough.
Scott's Selection Tullibardine 1989 23 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.70% 7 A well balanced dram, on the oaky edge of things.
