The Famous Grouse Blended Malt 37 Years Old
Blended Malt - Scotland - 47.60%
8 If this is John Ramsay's last blend then what a way to go. Masterly. The slow ever-changing multifaceted style is blending at its very best.

Wemyss Vintage Malts Autumn Berries 1986 26 Years Old
Blended Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Deceptive. The nose is fresh and fragrant. But the palate does not deliver much and the finish is so short.

Wemyss Vintage Malts Dried Fruit Basket
Blended Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 That raw sulphury edge suggests an immature whisky or one where there's been little communication between cask and whisky.

Wemyss Vintage Malts Honey Smoke 13 Years Old 1996
Blended Malt - Scotland - 59.60%
8 An enticing islander. A dash of water gives a velvety feel but in the same time, enhances the sootiness, hence a dusty feel on the tongue.

Wemyss Vintage Malts Spice King, 12 Years Old
Blended Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 A lovely whisky with a hole in the middle ! A higher alcohol strength would have made a big difference.

Wemyss Vintage Malts The Hive 8 Years Old
Blended Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 A well structured dram but the oakiness is a bit too blatant for me.

Wemyss Vintage Malts The Hive, 12 Years Old
Blended Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 The style of soothing dram you enjoy in summer on a warm afternoon. It will not fly you to the moon but it will take your stress away.
