Single Malt - Scotland - 45.80% 8 Seriously impressive. The combination of oils and soot stick to the palate.
Ichiro's Malt Card Joker
Single Malt - Japan - 57.70% 8 Now this is how I like my sherry matured whiskies, with a bit of age and oxidation notes to add character.
Isle of Skye 21 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00% 8 A beautiful, mature whisky
Paul John Indian Single Malt Single Cask Peated #777
Single Malt - India - 59.20% 8 Like a dusty, mature Bowmore.
Wemyss Vintage Malts Oysters With Lemon Pearls
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 8 Hmmm... I think I'm having a When Sally Met Harry moment!
Ancient Mariner Tobermory 1996 Cask Number 349
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.10% 7 Not exactly my favoured style of whisky but it has fruit and sweetness to balance the ‘spirit' character.
anCnoc Distilled 1975
Single Malt - Scotland - 44.20% 8 It really comes alive on the finish as those spices kick in.
Berrys' Single Malt Scotch Whisky 1988 Littlemill Cask #33
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 7 It's an enjoyable aperitif style whisky. My only gripe is that the oak bites a little hard on the finish.
Black Mountain BM No2
Blended - France - 42.00% 7 A lovely malt, which runs out of steam a little on the palate. I would have liked to have seen a little more oak interaction.
Chivas Regal Extra Blended Scotch Whisky
Blended - Scotland - 40.00% 7 The oak has the spirit in its vice-like grip!
Corsair Buck Yeah!
Pot Still - U.S.A. - 46.00% 8 Definitely left of centre. It has more than a passing resemblance to the Corsair Rasputin. For the record I love it!
Dunville's VR Old Irish Whiskey
Single Malt - Northern Ireland - 46.00% 8 Interesting! I don't think I have ever tasted a whisky with so much winey fruit.
Edradour The Fairy Flag 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 7 Pleasant, complex malt with all the character derived from the sherry cask.
Glendalough 13 Years Old
Single Malt - Republic of Ireland - 46.00% 8 Now this is the sort of whisky that excites me. Complex and full of character. Has some unmalted barley been used here?
Single Malt - Sweden - 46.10% 8 An all-round lovely malt. An Irish rye whiskey perhaps?
Millstone The Whisky Exchange Exclusive Dutch Single Rye Whisky
Rye - Netherlands - 58.60% 8 Now that's an impressive oak monster. Like a high rye content American, but I don't think it is.
Redbreast Mano a Lámh
Pot Still - Republic of Ireland - 46.00% 8 I thought it was going to be a fairly simple grain whisky and then it sprang to life on the finish.
Skip Rock Rye Whiskey
Rye - U.S.A. - 43.00% 8 A fabulous nose. Maybe more time in the cask might have helped the palate.
That Boutique-y Whisky Company Tobermory Batch 3
Single Malt - Scotland - 48.10% 8 A superbly balanced whisky.
The Glenlivet Founder's Reserve
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 7 It's pleasant enough in an unassuming way. Although it does fill out on the palate I would have liked to have seen it bottled at 43 or 46%.
Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey Lot #7 Small Batch
Single Malt - U.S.A. - 42.00% 7 It's another of those love / hate whiskies. Interesting!
