Longrow 10 Years Old, Sherrywood
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 8 Many blenders feel that second-fill sherry casks give a more balanced result than first-fill. This whisky is a lesson in that technique.
Longrow 14 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 8 Far more interesting than the 10 Years Old versions. It has the freshness and vibrancy of a crisp cold and rainy morning.
Longrow Gaja Barolo
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.80% 7 Longrow's bold character manages to boss the wine cask resulting in a fascinating combination.
MacDonald's Glencoe 8 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.00% 7 A warm comfort blanket of flavours.
Mackillop's Choice Caol Ila 1989, Cask 3322
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.70% 7 If Caol Ila can evoke the aroma and flavour of junipers, perhaps it can also suggest olive oil, vine leaves, couscous, baked aubergines. I have had great martinis in Tangier. Next time, a Caol Ila Sou...
Mackillop's Choice Glen Keith 1967
Single Malt - Scotland - 41.40% 7 A peatier expression of Glen Keith than I have tasted before.
Mackillop's Choice Glencadam 1974, Cask 10
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.90% 7 Showing its age, but still with the distillery character. Glencadam has its devotees and, with the distillery's future uncertain, supplies are finite.
Mackillop's Choice Linlithgow 1982, Cask 1336
Single Malt - Scotland - 62.60% 7 Very pungent and powerful for a Lowlander. Tending toward harshness. This seems typical of these last Linlithgows.
Mackillop's Choice Tomatin 1975, Cask 4
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.20% 7 Perhaps because the distillery was built to make quantity, as a filler, the industry seems universally – but unfairly – to deny the possibility of Tomatin making a truly interesting single. I coul...
Mackillop's Choice Tomintoul 1966
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.50% 7 Delicate, and definitely Speyside, but not quite as elegant as some expressions I have tasted.
Macleod's 8 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 7 An unreconstructed alpha male.
Macleod's 8 Years Old Highland Single Malt
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 7 Bold flavours. "Take me as I am, " it seems to say. I will. Let's live dangerously.
Macleod's Single Malt Scotch Whisky 8 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 7 Fine in an undemanding wa.
MacLeods 8 Years Old Lowland
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 7 A pleasing balance of spirit and wood, but lacked complexity. Young spirit in active oak?
MacPhail's Collection Highland Park 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 8 More robust and less sophisticated than the distillery bottlings.
MacPhail's Collection Highland Park 8 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 8 Only 8 Years Old, but a seasoned sea-salt. A return to form for the independent youngster.
MacPhail's Collection Tamdhu 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 7 Tamdhu is a pleasant, polite, whisky. Does it really have the stamina for such a marathon maturation?
Mannochmore 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 7 Rich, bonnie and complex. Not showing off, just beaming.
Mannochmore 18 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.90% 7 The nose lets you expect more sweetness. Oak is overwhelming on the palate.
Master of Malt Speyside 50 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 8 Lovely nose but not fully backed up on the tongue. In cask just too long.
Master of Malt Aberlour 1995 17 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.00% 8 Balanced, fresh and fruity – a fine opening dram for the evening.
Master of Malt Ardbeg 18 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.30% 8 Try describing ‘Islay' to someone who has never visited before. If they still don't get it, give them a dram of this.
Master of Malt Aultmore 5 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 66.80% 7 At this strength, one wonders what it's trying to prove.
Master of Malt Bally Delicious
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.00% 7 An interesting floral character but not a wide aromatic palate.
Master of Malt Ben Nevis 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.40% 8 This was a little edgy at first, but give it time and it softens up.
