Scotch Whisky - Single Malt

BenRiach 16 Years Old 1993 Claret Wood
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Pleasant, but the burnt wood knocks it back.

BenRiach 16 Years Old 1995 Cask 7164
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.30%
8 This whisky is oak dominated. Too much for me as we have lost the distillery character, but the nose is expressive. Beware of water, it kills it.

BenRiach 17 Years Old 1992 Rioja Wood
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Slightly over-active finishing cask has had a negative effect.

BenRiach 17 Years Old 1993 Burgundy Wood
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Just a little lacking in full integration. You can sense the whisky sitting underneath the finish.

BenRiach 21 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.70%
8 Reveals a rich profile by a succession of aromatic layers. Alcohol is perfectly tamed.

BenRiach Arumaticus Fumosus Dark Rum Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 A constantly shifting but balanced mix of sweetness and smoke and distillery character.

BenRiach Curiositas 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Quite a nice dram but a bit edgy.

BenRiach Dark Rum Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 A cheery dram, opening up on the sunny side with definite rum colours on the nose. A dash of water sweetens the palate.

BenRiach Heredotus Famosus Pedro Ximinez Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Fantastic balance and richness of character.

BenRiach Horizons 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
7 Triple distillation heightens the aromatics though can't really see the oloroso influence.

BenRiach Importanticus Fumosus Tawny Port Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Worth a look.

BenRiach Madeira wood finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Balanced and with good weight. A good addition to the range.

BenRiach Maderensis Fumosus Madeira Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Great balance. When Madeira works it really works!

BenRiach Sauternes Finish 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Lacks a little depth in the centre, but of interest.

BenRiach Sherry Matured
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Good, sweet and balanced.

BenRiach Solstice 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
8 A somewhat lurid colour, but this is an extremely sound and stylish BenRiach with an integration not often seen in finished whiskies.

Whisky Magazine - Best Buy - Winner

Bunnahabhain 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.30%
7 What was already a very fine (if underrated) 12yo has been given greater depth with a bump up in strength and non chill filtering. It's now one of the best on the market.

Bunnahabhain 14 Years Old Port Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 53.00%
7 Front-loaded, clumsy and forced. Bunna's good enough on its own.

Bunnahabhain 18 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.30%
8 On the oak side but with depth and distinction.

Bunnahabhain 25 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.30%
8 The nose lets you expect sweeter notes. The palate is a bit disappointing.

Bunnahabhain 35 Years Old Limited Edition
Single Malt - Scotland - 44.90%
8 You'd never guess this was 35. Great life, balance and bags of character. A beauty.

Bunnahabhain Cruach Mhona
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
8 An appetising islander. On the sweet side. Bring the langoustines and the scallops.

Bunnahabhain Darach Ur
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.30%
7 Seems to be slightly hidden somehow. Maybe it just needs time to settle in the bottle.

Bunnahabhain Manzanilla Sherry Wood 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 53.20%
7 Well controlled. Wood just coming into play and despite the sulphur it's a pleasing light,sweet spirit.

Glengoyne 14 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Just get the feeling that bottling at a slightly higher strength might have given it the kick it needs for the palate to balance the nose.
