Single Malts of Scotland Balblair 40 Years Old

Single Malts of Scotland Caol Ila
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.70%
8 Lovely balance. Great everyday dram.

Single Malts of Scotland Clynelish
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Good aperitif whisky. Lulls you into a false sense of security then hits you on the finish.

Single Malts of Scotland Clynelish 1972, Cask 15619
Single Malt - Scotland - 49.90%
7 Good, mature but still lively.

Single Malts of Scotland Linkwood 1993, Sherry Butt, Cask 3517
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.10%
7 Big cask character, with spirit style just poking through. The spirit seemed at odds with the cask perhaps.

Single Malts of Scotland Rosebank 14 Years Old, Bourbon Barrel
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 A surprising character. A light aromatic profile with a heavy mouthfeel. A touch of water keeps the balance right.

Single Malts of Scotland Clynelish 1995
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.50%
8 Unbalanced and too alcoholic. Falls apart with water.

Single Malts of Scotland Glen Grant 1992
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.80%
8 I think this could have done with more time in the cask.

Single Malts of Scotland Glenrothes 1990
Single Malt - Scotland - 49.40%
8 A pleasant, summery, aperitif dram.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Single Malts of Scotland Longmorn 1992
Single Malt - Scotland - 49.70%
8 Whisky and dark chocolate, a great combination, especially in the same glass!

Single Malts of Scotland Tobermory 1994
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.80%
8 My only quibble is that it's a bit dry on the finish. Best with a drop of water.
