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.

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.

The Dalmore 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.00%
8 A perfectly laid-back whisky, for those laid-back moments!

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.

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!

anCnoc Blas
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.00%
8 I had a feeling that this would do water particularly well and I was correct in that assumption.
