Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

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.
