Connoisseur's Choice

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Connoisseur's Choice Ardbeg 1974
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 Less boisterous than The Young One. The calm of maturity permits all the nuances to be experienced.

Connoisseur's Choice Ardbeg 1990
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 The palate seemed almost disappointingly cosy, but the wildness of Islay was recalled in the finish.

Connoisseur's Choice BenRiach 1981
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 The bourbon cask influence is obvious. A refreshing dram but simplistic. Water ruins it.

Connoisseur's Choice Bladnoch 1986
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 The light touch of sherry helps bring out the soft, fruity, flavours.

Connoisseur's Choice Caol Ila 1988
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Caol Ila can be a little gin-like. This bottling could be served like a Pimms. Mind you, no gin has such a long finish.

Connoisseur's Choice Clynelish 1991
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 Well-balanced and complex as a Clynelish should be. A good, solid afterdinner dram.

Connoisseur's Choice Dailuaine 1975
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Characterful. Individualistic.

Connoisseur's Choice Glenlossie 1975
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Again, rather dried out. Lacks roundness and structure.

Connoisseurs Choice Ledaig 1999
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Instantly recognisable! I will say this has a bit more balancing sweetness than is the norm.

Connoisseur's Choice Lochside 1991
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 Never a classic, but the closure of a distillery is a loss. Lochside was a pleasant whisky, and now it is a collector's item.

Connoisseur's Choice Mosstowie 1979
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 A nostalgic reminder of the Lomond still, though I had forgotten it could produce such sweet whisky.

Connoisseur's Choice Rosebank 1988
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 A deft balance between the whisky's own character and the sherry.
