Cooper's Choice

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Cooper's Choice Mortlach 1990, Sherry Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Delicious, especially if you have a sweet tooth.

Cooper's Choice Aberfeldy 1974
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 All the classic flavour elements. With its character "freshness", Aberfeldy often shines at younger ages. Here it excels in middle age.

Cooper's Choice Black Cuillin 8 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 A substitute for the much-missed Talisker eight year-old? Perhaps, but neither as complex nor as robust.

Cooper's Choice Bruichladdich 1991, 12 Years Old, Portwood
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Very appetising. Long, lingering.

Cooper's Choice Caol Ila 1990, 14 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 A middleweight Islay malt.

Cooper's Choice Caol Ila 1991, 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 A perfectly decent dram, but just lacks the required interaction between wood and spirit.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Cooper's Choice Caol Ila 1992, 13 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Incredibly appetising. Perhaps a touch more acidity somewhere would balance the sweetness.

Cooper's Choice Clynelish 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 The most gritty and seaweedy.

Cooper's Choice Clynelish 1990, 12 Years Old, Port Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Not one of the peaty vintages, and would have benefited from some other element to lift the creaminess.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Cooper's Choice Dallas Dhu 1970, 32 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Delicious Dallas Dhu does it again. How long can this go on?

Cooper's Choice Glenlivet 1971, 32 Years Old, Sherry Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 This example has stood up to its 32 years in the cask very well. A good example of how supple an old Glenlivet can be.

Cooper's Choice Glenlivet 1972, 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Lovely glowing colour. A big Glenlivet, more robust than complex.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Cooper's Choice Glenlivet 1991
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 A delicious afterdinner malt.

Cooper's Choice Glen Albyn 1974, 28 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Fuller in flavours, and sweeter, than I remember Glen Albyn.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Cooper's Choice Glen Grant 1977 27 Years Old, Sherry Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 A Speysider with a rich chestnut colour, plenty of aroma and lots of flavour. Makes a change from the dumbed-down and the terminally delicate.

Cooper's Choice Glen Grant 1988, 15 Years Old, Portwood
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 The delicacy of the Glen Grant survives here.

Cooper's Choice Inchgower 1980, Sherry Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Mature. Complex. A little woody for sure, but plenty of pleasant things going on elsewhere in this contemplative dram.

Cooper's Choice Longmorn 1975, 27 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Complex, as Longmorn always is, but I wonder about the cask.

Cooper's Choice Mortlach 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 A good bottling of this lovely malt. Mortlach has such complexity that I find new aromas and flavours every time I raise the glass.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Cooper's Choice Mortlach 1990 16 Years Old, Sherry Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Yup, it's Mortlach alright. Every bit as good as the OB.

Cooper's Choice Rosebank 1992
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 A reminder of a great Lowland malt lost.

Cooper's Choice Rosebank 1992, 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Perhaps 12 years in the cask is slightly too long for most Rosebanks. This does not seem a particularly well-behaved example.

Cooper's Choice Strathisla 1976, 27 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Always a complex whisky, hard to pin down. This sample seems to have triggered an oriental mood.
