Talisker Skye. Seriously impressive. The combination of oils and soot stick to the palate.

Millstone The Whisky Exchange Exclusive Dutch Single Rye Whisky
Rye - Netherlands - 58.60%

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Ichiro's Malt Card Joker
Single Malt - Japan - 57.70%
8 Now this is how I like my sherry matured whiskies, with a bit of age and oxidation notes to add character.

That Boutique-y Whisky Company Tobermory Batch 3
Single Malt - Scotland - 48.10%
8 A superbly balanced whisky.

anCnoc Distilled 1975
Single Malt - Scotland - 44.20%
8 It really comes alive on the finish as those spices kick in.

Skip Rock Rye Whiskey
Rye - U.S.A. - 43.00%
8 A fabulous nose. Maybe more time in the cask might have helped the palate.

Redbreast Mano a Lámh
Pot Still - Republic of Ireland - 46.00%
8 I thought it was going to be a fairly simple grain whisky and then it sprang to life on the finish.

Corsair Buck Yeah!
Pot Still - U.S.A. - 46.00%
8 Definitely left of centre. It has more than a passing resemblance to the Corsair Rasputin. For the record I love it!

Dunville's VR Old Irish Whiskey
Single Malt - Northern Ireland - 46.00%
8 Interesting! I don't think I have ever tasted a whisky with so much winey fruit.

Glendalough 13 Years Old
Single Malt - Republic of Ireland - 46.00%
8 Now this is the sort of whisky that excites me. Complex and full of character. Has some unmalted barley been used here?

Mackmyra Midvinter
Single Malt - Sweden - 46.10%
8 An all-round lovely malt. An Irish rye whiskey perhaps?

Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey Lot #7 Small Batch
Single Malt - U.S.A. - 42.00%
7 It's another of those love / hate whiskies. Interesting!
