Scotch Malt Whisky Society 33.70 Ardbeg Keith Richards meets Socrates 1998 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.30% 7 An effusively phenolic smouldering hulk. Recommended.
Bunnahabhain Cruach Mhona
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00% 8 An appetising islander. On the sweet side. Bring the langoustines and the scallops.
Bunnahabhain 35 Years Old Limited Edition
Single Malt - Scotland - 44.90% 8 You'd never guess this was 35. Great life, balance and bags of character. A beauty.
Bunnahabhain 18 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.30% 8 On the oak side but with depth and distinction.
Bunnahabhain 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.30% 7 What was already a very fine (if underrated) 12yo has been given greater depth with a bump up in strength and non chill filtering. It's now one of the best on the market.
Bunnahabhain Darach Ur
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.30% 7 Seems to be slightly hidden somehow. Maybe it just needs time to settle in the bottle.
Bunnahabhain 25 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.30% 8 The nose lets you expect sweeter notes. The palate is a bit disappointing.
Bunnahabhain Manzanilla Sherry Wood 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 53.20% 7 Well controlled. Wood just coming into play and despite the sulphur it's a pleasing light,sweet spirit.
Bunnahabhain 14 Years Old Port Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 53.00% 7 Front-loaded, clumsy and forced. Bunna's good enough on its own.
Wemyss Vintage Malts Loch Indaal Catch
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 8 Stunningly mature. There may be a wrinkle or two, but wrinkles come with age!
Bowmore 40 Years Old, 1969
Single Malt - Scotland - 44.80% 9 Superb balance. Classic distillery character retained after four decades - no mean achievement.
Lagavulin Limited Edition 2010
Single Malt - Scotland - 52.50% 9 As good a Lagavulin as I've tasted. Hie thee to Islay!
Dewar Rattray Bruichladdich 1991, 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 60.00% 8 Savoury. Summery. A picnic malt. Or eating freshly shucked oysters with Jim McEwan.
Old Malt Cask Ardbeg 28 Years Old, The Ardbeggeddon 1972, Sherry Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 48.40% 8 One of the best Ardbegs I have ever tasted. Full range of the distillery's typical flavours, lyrically combined.
Single Malt - Scotland - 49.90% 8 Some people make peaty whisky, others try to. On this offering, these guys are the former, not the latter.
