Lady of the Glen Aultmore 1992. Fabulously fresh yet pleasingly complex. Wears its high ABV relatively lightly.

Rampur Single Malt Select Vintage Casks

7 Approach-able, soft and safe.

Murray McDavid The Vatting: Peatside 6 Years Old

Old Particular Loch Lomond
Single Grain - Scotland - 51.50%
7 I like the texture of this whisky neat, but comes into its own with water.
