Lombard Jewels of Scotland Glenury Royal 1973 Cask #6867
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00% 9 Not enough space to describe the brilliance of this whisky!
Ben Nevis Mr Taketsuru's Cask 25 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 61.30% 9 Raw and wild unless you add water! Enjoyable and memorable.
Cragganmore 25 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 51.40% 9 A stunning dram! Sensational neat or with water.
Lagavulin 8 Years Old 200 Years 1816 - 2016
Single Malt - Scotland - 48.00% 8 A lovely Islay. Not overblown peat wise, just very well balanced and seriously salty!
Single Malt - Scotland - 48.00% 8 Wood, peat and treacle makes for an entertaining mouthful!
Michter's Straight Rye 10 Years Old
Rye - U.S.A. - 46.60% 8 Intense! Some may find it too dry and bitter, but to me, its fun!
Smögen Svensk Sherry Project 1:4
Single Malt - Sweden - 57.20% 9 A fascinating experience!
Tomintoul Speyside Glenlivet Five Decades
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00% 8 A funky, herbal, sherry monster. Goes rather well with a cigar!
WhistlePig 15 Years Old
Rye - U.S.A. - 46.00% 8 A brilliant rye. If the nose had the clarity and intensity of the rye that the palate did, it would be running for Editor's Choice.
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.00% 8 I had a feeling that this would do water particularly well and I was correct in that assumption.
Berrys' Single Grain Scotch Whisky 2005, Strathclyde, Cask #106491
Single Grain - Scotland - 58.70% 7 No need to add water to this one.
Elements of Islay Peat
Blended Malt - Scotland - 59.30% 8 Neat, this is superb. I love the way the nose slowly unwinds to reveal layers of complexity.
Hyde Irish Whiskey Single Grain Bourbon Matured
Single Grain - Republic of Ireland - 46.00% 8 A vatted grain? It certainly exhibits youth and maturity and possibly wine finished. Either way it's very enjoyable.
Kings County Distillery Peated Bourbon
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 45.00% 8 Gives the impression of a worn out old spirit and revived by vatting in youthful spirit.
Limeburners Sherry Cask, Cask Strength
Single Malt - Australia - 61.00% 8 Clearly well made whisky, with a very dominant cask.
Parker's Heritage Collection 8 Years Old Straight Malt Whiskey
Blended Grain - U.S.A. - 54.00% 8 Intriguing and contemplative. In fact it goes rather well with Green and Blacks organic milk chocolate!
Single Malt - Italy - 43.00% 8 Lovely aromas, but the palate lacks the promise or complexity of the nose. Definitely a work in progress.
St. Patrick's Irish Whiskey Oak Aged
Blended - Republic of Ireland - 40.00% 7 A pleasant blend, although I would have liked to have seen some malt character on the palate.
The Dalmore 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.00% 8 A perfectly laid-back whisky, for those laid-back moments!
The Glenturret Peated Edition
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 7 Not a style of whisky that I get on with and this doesn't have enough balancing sweetness from either fruit or spirit.
