Scotch Whisky - Single Malt

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

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.

Longmorn 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.00%
8 I had never noticed the rose water note before, I also find it in Linkwood – from the same valley.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Longmorn 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.00%
8 A rewarding marriage of weight and elegancy.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Longmorn 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.00%
8 That frisky Speysider judiciously bottled at 45% has a lot to deliver. Will certainly light up a zen moment.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Longmorn 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 48.00%
8 Great balance and depth. At last! Longmorn gets the bottling it deserves.

Longmorn 17 Years Old, Cask Strength
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.20%
8 Maybe not as balanced as the classic 15 year-old. But who would turn one's nose up to a Longmorn? So rare, so satisfying. Yummy.

Longmorn 1976 31 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.30%
8 A natural beauty. Rich and elegant, without ostentation.As harmonious as a concerto from Mozart.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Longmorn 31 Years Old Bottle for the Whisky Fair
Single Malt - Scotland - 49.80%
8 An extremely complex – and for me, pleasant – nose is matched by a dense and demanding palate.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Longrow
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 A belter. Highest recommendation

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Longrow 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 A beautifully composed whisky. Classic intense, Scottish flavours.
