The Glenlivet Guardian's Chapter. You could argue that it's a bit simple but when it delivers simple like this, who needs complexity?

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Old Forester Birthday Bourbon
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 48.50%
8 This is seriously intense and seriously impressive!

Compass Box Whisky Company The Lost Blend
Blended Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Bottled in the nick of time. Any longer in the cask and the oak would dominate.

The English Whisky Company Chapter 15
Single Malt - England - 46.00%
8 It's an odd one this with most of the character appearing on the palate.

Wemyss Vintage Malts Bench with as Sea View
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Beautifully balanced. Gritty oak and coastal notes hint at an Islander but the oak and honey says Speyside. Grantown-on-sea?

Paul John Indian Single Malt Single Cask #1444
Single Malt - India - 59.70%
8 Wow, this has come out of left field. Is it made from some kind of multi-grain mash?

Smokehead Islay Single Malt Rock Edition
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 I would have liked to have seen this bottled at 46% or 50% as it would have given the palate more intensity.

That Boutique-y Whisky Company Aberlour Batch 3
Single Malt - Scotland - 49.20%
8 A bit simple but pleasantly bracing.

The GlenDronach, Abbey Whisky Exclusive Single Cask 1994
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.80%
8 Pure, clean, natural sherry character.

Mackmyra Moment Bärnsten
Single Malt - Sweden - 49.80%
8 Entertaining but it just lacks some sweetness to balance the alcohol and rye.

Glenmorangie Tùsail
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 A lovely robust, deep whisky with a delightful finish. What more can you say?

Angels' Nectar Blended Malt First Edition
Blended Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Young, characterful malt which will be fascinating to see how this develops if given more time in the cask.

Edradour Straight From the Cask Chateauneuf du Pape Cask Finish 11 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.90%
7 It's a young sherry monster, which could have come from anywhere.
