Reference Series Reference Series III
Blended Malt - Scotland - 47.50% 8 Warm waffles drizzled in runny honey. Excellent stuff.
Wemyss Malts Single Cask Release Lemon Cheesecake
Single Grain - Scotland - 46.00% 8 Tender hearted and loveable. Delicious.
Reference Series Reference Series II
Blended Malt - Scotland - 47.50% 8 Nice and rich, but (like us all) it could be richer.
Clan Denny Port Dundas 1978 34 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.60% 8 A belter of a grain with typical Port Dundas funkiness.
Wemyss Vintage Malts Lord Elcho
Blended - Scotland - 40.00% 8 The air the day after a hippy festival leaves town. Scented and earthy.
Cutty Sark Tam O'Shanter
Blended - Scotland - 46.50% 8 A bigger Cutty than you might expect but the purity of character links it to the family. Weel (sic) done!
Johnnie Walker Platinum 18 years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00% 8 Though I miss Gold at this age statement this is a worthy replacement with a little more overt Walker characteristics: smoke and a sherried grip.
Grant's Blended Scotch Whisky Signature
Blended - Scotland - 40.00% 8 It comes across as a well put together blended whisky with a high malt content.
Master of Malt 8 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00% 8 Cleanliness, style and substance. A wee cracker!
Rock Oyster Small Batch Release
Blended Malt - Scotland - 46.80% 8 Although not hugely complex, the higher degree of alcohol means that its straightforward character is amplified.
Blended - Scotland - 41.40% 8 The first nose is unusual and takes you to pine forests. Then the fruit character unwinds. Water releases a cardboard note. I like the spiciness and bouncyp rofile of this whisky.
Double Barrel Mortlach/Laphroaig
Blended Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 8 Lovely tussle between the two elements. A lot of fun.
Wemyss Vintage Malts Salt & Pepper 1997
Blended - Scotland - 56.20% 7 Has good balance and decent complexity.
Grant's 25 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00% 7 A delicate and enticing whisky which would have benefited from a higher strength. When you want to try a little tenderness.
Label 5 Blended Scotch Whisky Classic Black
Blended - Scotland - 40.00% 7 Appears to be a grain heavy blended whisky with the peated malt punching above its weight. However it's an enjoyable, unpretentious dram.
