Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Kingsbury Islay 1973, 27 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 47.40%
8 Has this cask slept so long that it cannot completely wake up?

Kingsbury Clynelish 1990, Amontillado sherry cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 0.00%
8 That distinctive pine-nut character perhaps derives from the Amontillado sherry, but its influence is otherwise restrained.

Kingsbury Glencadam 1971, 28 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.60%
7 Lacks roundness, structure, balance. I was sorry to hear that this distillery has been closed. Temporarily?

Kingsbury Glenturret 1965
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.20%
6 Very much the house style. Has not gained, or lost, much by such a long maturation.

Kingsbury Glen Albyn 1965
Single Malt - Scotland - 49.10%
8 No distillery deserves to be knocked down to accommodate a strip mall, but Glen Albyn just did not have the muscle to defend itself (as Tom Wait might have put it).

Kingsbury Tamdhu 1966
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 A welcome bottling of this neglected malt, and an interesting example.

Tokyo does it the Speyside Way (The Speyside Way)
Taylor Smisson claims that Scotland doesn't have the monopoly on world-class Scotch malt whisky bars and visits Tokyo's The Speyside Way bar to prove his point
