Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

The Antiquary 35 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 46.00%
9 I need a big cigar, my slippers and a leather armchair next to a roaring fire to appreciate this!

Angels' Nectar Blended Malt Rich Peat Edition
Blended Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 It's always fun trying to guess the components of a blend. It comes across like a vatting of Caol Ila, Ledaig and Highland Park.

Duncan Taylor The Gentleman's Dram
Blended Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
4 I must admit, it was more subtly smoked than I expected but that smoke really lingers and the finish is probably the best of the six.

Wemyss Vintage Malts Spice King
Blended Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
4 A lovely blended malt. My only gripe is that the palate is a little too oily, muting the fresher elements and complexity of the nose.

Wemyss Malts Kiln Embers
Blended Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 The Islay component is quite dominating but there is a lovely balancing sweetness from the other malt components.

Wemyss Vintage Malts Peat Chimney
Blended Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
4 Just like the Spice King it showed more complexity on the nose than on the palate.

Compass Box Flaming Heart
Blended Malt - Scotland - 48.90%
8 As a whisky it's very enjoyable; however as a blend I feel the peated component is too dominant.

Duncan Taylor Kyloe
Blended Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
4 The ABV gives it a real punchy intensity but at the end of the, day it is still just a very grain heavy blend.

Label 5 Extra Rare 18 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
8 I had a sneaky feeling whilst nosing this that the oak would be too over-powering for the palate. I was correct in that assumption.
