Scotch Whisky - Single Malt

Ledaig 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.30%
7 Not exactly refined, but a bit of rough does you no harm and certainly a big improvement. There's just something about the wood that isn't quite right.

Ledaig 1973 33 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 48.00%
7 A marine dram but neither smokynor peaty. Just a briny profile. Another wake up dram but this time, bring the kippers!

Ledaig 7 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 That wasn't breakfast toast after all. It was melba toast, with a game pate. Or better still, a mousseline.

Ledaig 7 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 42.00%
7 Quite an unusual profile. A comforting malt to enjoy while camping in the wilderness.

Ledaig Sherry Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 42.00%
7 Quite a rich and complex malt. Needs a long aeration to release it all.

Linkwood 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 Linkwood always evokes thoughts of sweetmeats. This one seems a particularly sweet interpetation.

Linkwood 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 Satisfies nose and palate equally. To be opened and enjoyed at Christmas.

Linkwood 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 A strange fellow. As if all was delivered in a dash. Then the finish seems to never end.

Linkwood 26 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.90%
7 Some sort of a finish? It overwhelms the distillery character. Too bad, because the core is good.

Linkwood 26 Years Old, Rum Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.50%
7 A bourbon cask maturation followed by a rum finish ? Take your time to enjoy this sunny dram. Really subtle.

Linkwood 26 Years Old. Wine Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.50%
8 Oak is leading the way but in an elegant way. A very spicy dram. To be matched with a beef stroganoff maybe.

Linkwood Cote Rotie
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.00%
7 For me the cask is over-dominant.

Littlemill 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
6 Marked down for that cabbagey character – right back to school dinners.

Littlemill 1984, 18 Years Old, Chieftain's Choice
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 The rum finish is very sympathetic towards the natural flavours of Littlemill, but the combination never quite delivers what it promises.

Loch Lomond Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Very sweet. Definitely a dessert whisky.

Lombard Bowmore 1989
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
6 For a relatively young Bowmore, this seems somewhat tired.

Lombard Brora 1982
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
8 Every time I pick up the glass, I find new flavours. A Scottish aquavit to send the Danes packing.

Lombard Caperdonich 1968
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
6 Less fruity than I remember. An unusual afterdinner malt.

Lombard Glen Grant 1964
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 I usually find delicate old Glen Grants to be overwhelmed by oak. This example makes for a mature dram with considerable complexity.

Lombard Highland Park 1989
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
8 Very slow, long, flavour development. Gets up to speed at the very end.

Lombard Lochside 1981
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
7 Lochside was a capricious malt, but it is missed nonetheless.

Lombard Mortlach 1990
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
6 Extraordinarily pale colour. The floweriness was perhaps a hint at Mortlach but, if I were served this out of context, would I recognise it as whisky? I might guess at aquavit rather than usquebaugh.

Lombard Rosebank 1989
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
8 A good example. Such a love potion, from a distillery that no one loved enough to keep alive.

Lombard Springbank 1965
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Robust, but lacks the delicacy and structure of the best Springbanks.

Lombard Springbank 1991
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
8 Jumps and bites. This is the young Springbank, not yet the mature sophisticate.
