A journey round Islay, visits to Maker's Mark and Penderyn, and the conclusion to our trip down the Rockies
Balcones Texas Single Malt
Single Malt - U.S.A. - 51.00% 7 Clearly a lovely distillate. Hope to see it slightly older and more integrated.
Balcones True Blue
Single Malt - U.S.A. - 63.60% 8 Seems to have a rum influence. A finish? No it is a corn American whiskey? I wouldn't have guessed. A rich aromatic profile and a pleasantly surprising alcohol mastering.
Colkegan Single Malt Whiskey
Single Malt - U.S.A. - 46.00% 9 Like walking into a French pâtisserie in a small rural Gascony village.
Corsair Triple Smoke Single Barrel Distiller Select
Single Malt - U.S.A. - 67.50% 9 It's a love or hate whisky and I love it.
E.H. Taylor Jnr Single Barrel 2000 11 Years Old
Single Malt - U.S.A. - 50.00% 8 A polished and complex whiskey.
Eagle Rare 17 Years Old
Single Malt - U.S.A. - 45.00% 8 A bourbon for non sweet teeth. Rich, very well structured.
Few Single Malt
Single Malt - U.S.A. - 46.50% 7 A tricky one. I would hazard a bet this has a strange mash bill. It's clever but a little too difficult to pin down.
High Spirits Mesquite Smoked Arizona
Single Malt - U.S.A. - 40.00% 7 Has the true spirit character slightly masked here?
McCarthy's Single Malt
Single Malt - U.S.A. - 40.00% 6 In a young whisky, I would have expected more freshness of flavour, but the elements are there, and the product shows promise.
Single Malt - U.S.A. - 62.10% 8 Despite the 'Old', a new rye. The idea was to get closer to what the first American ryes might have been. I like the idea. Wins points for all-rye character and assertiveness.
St George Single Malt
Single Malt - U.S.A. - 43.00% 6 Knowing that this distillery began with eau-de-vie, I hope I am not being suggestible, but I find the fruitiness of this whisky overwhelming.
St George Single Malt Lot 9
Single Malt - U.S.A. - 43.00% 6 The Californian St George, not the Norfolk one. One of the finest craft distillers
Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey Lot #7 Small Batch
Single Malt - U.S.A. - 42.00% 7 It's another of those love / hate whiskies. Interesting!
Westward Oregon Malt Whiskey Single Barrel
Single Malt - U.S.A. - 45.00% 8 Young but plenty of character. The alcohol is a touch aggressive but it does balance the sweetness.
Woodford Reserve Master's Collection Maple Wood
Single Malt - U.S.A. - 47.20% 7 Deep, rich. The final recommendation from a cracking bunch.
