Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Talisker Skye
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.80%

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

That Boutique-y Whisky Company Highland Park
Single Malt - Scotland - 44.70%
9 A fruity little number, which is well balanced with enough earthy tones to play well with the flighty fruits. Yum!

Machrie Morr Cask Strength
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.40%
7 Neat, a real sinus clearing malt! Diluted, the oak grips a little too much.

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.

Talisker Dark Storm
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.80%
8 ?Potent, yet inviting, this has plenty going on to keep the keenest of palates entertained with it.

HIghland Park Freya
Single Malt - Scotland - 51.20%
8 A classic Bourbon cask maturation. Refreshing and satisfying. A good springtime malt to enjoy with smoked salmon.

Highland Park Dark Origins
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.80%
7 The sherry masks more subtle flavours so it feels a little one-dimensional.

Ancient Mariner Tobermory 1996 Cask Number 349
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.10%
7 Not exactly my favoured style of whisky but it has fruit and sweetness to balance the ‘spirit' character.

Jura Turas Mara
Single Malt - Scotland - 42.00%
4 ? A well knitted fruity whisky. The perfect companion of a scrumptious Tarte Tatin. Water enhanced some bitter oak. Better neat.
