Selected by Berry's

Selected by Berry's Islay Reserve Blended Malt
Blended Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 A young Ileach, close to the new make. The cask has not imparted much. But a clean dram. Refreshing and tonic.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Selected by Berry's Speyside Reserve Blended Malt
Blended Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 A refined, complex and charming dram. An absolute cracker.

Selected by Berry's Bowmore 2003 8 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.90%
7 Another “herbal tea” option. Would be marvelous in a granité with a citrus fruit salad.

Selected by Berry's Bunnahabhain 21 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 53.10%
8 A bold statement, this one. If you like heavily sherried drams, this will appeal, if not, perhaps time to reconsider.

Whisky Magazine - Best Buy - Winner

Selected by Berry's Clynelish 1997 14 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 An excellent everyday summer dram. Sweet without excess, with an aerial texture. Fresh and fragrant.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Selected by Berry's Glenlivet 1973 38 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 A real cracker. Perfect balance. Rich, enticing. Alcohol is beautifully mastered.

Selected by Berry's Glen Grant 1974
Single Malt - Scotland - 47.80%
7 A rich sherry profile. On the oak side but elegant and deep. Water kills it.

Selected by Berry's Longmorn 1992 19 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 This has some characterful notes, but not enough to raise it into the echelons of other whiskies of comparable age.
