Kentucky, Louisville, Benromach
Limburgers Two Years Old, 2006.
An aromatised whisky ? Odd,rather well constructed but leave a sickening
feel. Like a cough syrup.
Lark Distillery Distillers Selection.
Decent spirit the oak has added a hard edge. Lacks interaction between oak and spirit.
Like a sticky candy you have kept in your pocket for ages. Easy to forget.
English Whisky Co Chapter 11 Heavily Peated 3 Years Old.
So difficult to score an infant ! All I can say is that there is a potential.
Although the nose is pretty smooth, the alcohol is not mastered on the
palate. Lacks balance.
Amrut Two Continents Second Edition.
Amrut are doing some really interesting work right now.
Nikka Single Coffey Malt.
Layers of seductive soft fruitiness. A malt made in a Coffey still? Why the hell not!
Republic of Ireland
Midleton Single Cask 1996.
Delicate and charming.
Cask Collection Cooley 1992 15 Years Old.
A rich nose and a somewhat restrained palate with an assertive oak print,which the high strength
Master of Malt Highland Park 13 Years Old.
Refreshing and well balanced. The nose promises more than it delivers on the palate. I have never co
Scotch Malt Whisky Society 9 Years Old, Millennium Malt.
Frighteningly good. Godzilla is alive and well and living in Campbeltown.
Aberfeldy 12 Years Old.
Refreshing and light-hearted. Almost too playful to take seriously.
Highland Park 1977 Bicentenary Vintage Reserve.
A great malt: luxurious, profound, full of the flavours of Scotland
Ardbeg is one of my great favourites, and this is one of the best versions I have tasted recently.
Auchentoshan 1966, 31 Years Old.
A fine whisky, but does something as fresh and soft benefit from quite so much ageing?
Cadenhead's Longrow 1996, 10 Years Old.
Grant's 25 Years Old.
A delicate and enticing whisky which would have benefited from a higher
strength. When you want to t
A little more roundness would have been appreciated.
Mackmyra Special:01 Eminent Sherry.
A lovely dram. Delicate on the nose, quite brisk on the palate. But with a good substance. Invigorat
Kavalan 5 Years Old, Solist Fino.
Bitter all the way. No balance. One dimensional. To try only if you are a ‘woodfreak'. Surprisingl
High Spirits Mesquite Smoked Arizona.
Has the true spirit character slightly masked here?
Despite the 'Old', a new rye. The idea was to get closer to what the first American ryes might have
Forty Creek John's Private Cask.
Interesting contrast between nose and palate.
Breckenridge 4 Years Old, Bourbon 2007.
This doesn't really need more than four years.
Glenmorangie Ealanta 19 Years Old.
?Less complexity on the palate, but the nose can pop round for a visit anytime it likes.
Lion's Pride Single Barrel Bourbon.
A pleasant dram, light and cheerful. A summertime cordial.
Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.
Perhaps encouraged by the dark orange colour, the descriptors sound sweet, but the overall effect is
McCarthy's Single Malt.
In a young whisky, I would have expected more freshness of flavour, but the elements are there, and
Jack Daniel's Single Barrel.
An interesting interplay of Jack Daniel's house character and a more luxurious oakiness.
Balcones Brimstone Corn Whiskey.
For some reason I keep thinking of Gram Parson's immolation at Joshua Tree.
Copper Fox Rye.
An uneasy mix between spirit and wood.
High West Whiskey Double Rye.
Bold and well made. For me maybe just needs a bit more sweetness but worth a look.
Dry Fly Port Finish Wheat.
?Hard to pin an age on this, as it has some lovely fresh youthfulness, but an elegant maturity too.
Dry Fly Triticle.
?A big, rich classic Bourbon note to this one. Well played.
Penderyn Single Bourbon Cask.
Just lacks a little weight but a good aperitif.
