Blue Hanger 25 Years Old, Second Release
Blended - Scotland - 45.60%
8 The nose suggests a winter warmer, but the palate performs as a summer refresher.

Campbeltown Loch 21 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%

Campbeltown Loch 25 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Easily drinkable but with a distinct regional character and plenty of flavour. This could become one of my favourite blends.

Caribbean Fruit 19 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 46.00%
3 Another deliciously drinkable dram from an increasingly impressive bottler.

Cattos 25 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
8 What a surprising whisky. The nose is so shy that you expect a bland palate. And here you are, with a lovely array of fruity flavours. You definitely can't tell a sausage by the skin (one of my favour...

Chivas Brothers 100 Pipers, 8 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 A very gentle and fruity whisky. Would have benefited from a balancing dryness.

Chivas Regal 12 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
8 The flavours tail off, as though the whisky is going to sleep. Smooth and easy, but lacks liveliness. Springtime never quite blossoms into summer.

Chivas Regal 12 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Delicately balanced. Clean. Drinkable. There is an element of luxury, but never quite the frisson of luxury that the marketing implies.

Chivas Regal 12 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
Clean and light.

Chivas Regal 18 Ultimate Cask Collection
Blended - Scotland - 48.00%
8 Now, that's an example of a fine blended whisky!

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Chivas Regal 18 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
8 A bit overbalanced by sherry, but nicely rounded by the smoky finish.

Chivas Regal 18 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
Has richness, but is always also being pulled up adding a top layer of fragrance. Loses the impact with water, so I'd have it neat or with one rock.
