Glen Moray Elgin Classic Port Cask Finish

Label 5 Blended Scotch Whisky Gold Heritage
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
8 This is afternoon tea. Not quite at the poshest restaurant in town, but the one next door. Slightly cheaper, no waiting time but equally as good.

Old Pulteney Navigator
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Almost like a ginger wine, this would make a great rusty nail.

Compass Box Whisky Great Kind Street
Blended - Scotland - 43.00%
7 This is a pick'n'mix whisky, a bit rancio on the finish but there are some sweet moments if you look for them.

Bunnahabhain Ceòbanach
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.30%
7 This could do with much longer in the cask before being let out into the world. Makes me hope bottle-aging exists.

Springbank Cask Strength 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.30%
7 This one is not really to my taste.

Glengoyne 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 The whisky for a mason; lots of structure, stone and hard work.
