Master of Malt Glenturret 34 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 47.90% 8 A nicely rounded whisky.
Master of Malt Highland Park 13 Years Old
Single Malt - Republic of Ireland - 56.00% 7 Refreshing and well balanced. The nose promises more than it delivers on the palate. I have never come across such a phenolic HP.
Master of Malt Laphroaig 10 Years Old 1998
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.50% 8 The perfect image of the countryside in autumn on a wet chilly morning, with a mixture of fog and smoke hovering over the fields and the woods. Very suggestive.
Master of Malt Lowland Single Malt 2nd Edition
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 7 Hard to pin a great deal on this one. The nose has its merits, but you really have to search for them.
Master of Malt Speyside 60 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 42.20% 9 Flavours like these are the reason wood maturation was invented. Excellent stuff.
Master of Malt Springbank 19 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.80% 8 A buoyant character. Perfect to get you back on your feet on a crispy morning.
Master of Malt Springbank 19 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.50% 8 Invigorating like a crisp spring morning. Fragrances in the air. I prefer it neat.
Master of Malt Tobermory 17 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.00% 7 A vibrant character, especially on the palate. Refreshing but with a bite.
Master of Malt Tormore Single Cask Series
Single Malt - Scotland - 60.20% 7 Interesting whisky but the high ABV requires some precautions. Time, a dash of water and you have an energetic and talkative dram!
Master of Malt Whisky Liqueur 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 7 A fine addition to the ever-growing whisky liqueur category.
McGibbon's Port Ellen 23 Years Old, Provenance
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 7 Reminded me of old Calvados. Oak tends to overwhelm fruit but a wee dash of water tones it down. Very unpeated for a Port Ellen!
Montgomerie's The Macallan 1989 Single Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 7 Macallan in disguise. Impossible to recognise blind. So unusual but really attractive.
Mortlach 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 8 A great malt that is enigmatic and sometimes seems reclusive.
Mortlach 1980, 17 Years Old, Cask Strength
Single Malt - Scotland - 63.10% 7 A big, rich interpretation; an outstanding digestif.
Mortlach 1998 14 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.50% 7 A pleasant light aromatic profile but this whisky has not matured in very active casks.
Murray McDavid 1987,
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 8 Both the name and the medicinal character suggests the distillery of origin.
Murray McDavid Bunnahabhain 1979 Bourbon Barrel
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 6 Surprising peatiness, but without smokiness.
Murray McDavid Bunnahabhain 1979 Sherry Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 7 For an allegedly light malt, the flavours sing through but, as the dark colour suggests, there really is too much wood.
Murray McDavid Caol Ila 1989
Single Malt - Scotland - 62.70% 8 On the light side, but with some delicacy and complexity.
Murray McDavid Highland Park 1979
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 8 Very good indeed as a lightish, delicate, interpretation of Highland Park.
Murray McDavid Lagavulin 1979
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 8 An opportunity to taste another version of Lagavulin. Subtle and complex, but I missed the instant punch of peat.
Murray McDavid Mission Clynelish 1972
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 8 Spectacular aperitif. I wanted to eat a whole salmon.
Murray McDavid Mission Dallas Dhu 1979
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 7 The most elegant bottlng of the three from Dallas Dhu in this tasting. Soft, soothing.
Murray McDavid Mission Glenlivet 1974
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 8 The most feminine Glenlivet I have encountered.
Murray McDavid Mission II Caperdonich 1968
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 7 Good structure, but spoiled by bitterness and woodiness.
