The best whiskies in the world 2017, Icons of Whisky Global winners and the conclusion to this year's Battle of the Blends
Inverleven 17 Years Old
- Scotland - 40.00% 8 My summer drink already and it's barely spring.
Inverleven 1979 27 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.10% 7 This whisky definitely needs water to extinguish the fire. Would have benefited from a bottling at a lower strength.
Inverleven Deoch an Dora 1973
Single Malt - Scotland - 48.50% 8 A charming thirst-quencher. No water please. It is perfect straight.
Duncan Taylor Inverleven 26 Years Old, Cask 1873
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.10% 8 An interesting character. Much sweeter on the palate than expected from the nose. Water brings out an unpleasant cardboardy touch.
Gordon & MacPhail Inverleven 1985
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 7 Not much complexity, but an unusually summery whisky.
Gordon & MacPhail Inverleven 1986
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 6 Light, straightforward. Delicacy without mannerism. Keep it for a romantic candlelit dinner.
Gordon & MacPhail Inverleven 1990, 40 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 0.00% 7 The nose is appealing but the palate far tougher. Water eases the release of grassy notes. But the aromatic profile keeps shallow.
