The Irish West Coast Trail, Tullibardine Distillery, Bourbon Pot Stills, Westland Distillery
AnCnoc 35 years old
Single Malt - Scotland - 44.30% 9 Superb balance and aromatic intensity. Exemplary old whisky.
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 7 ery harmonious. The dense, fruitiness of the spirit gives it weight and it's not one dimensional.
anCnoc Distilled 1975
Single Malt - Scotland - 44.20% 8 It really comes alive on the finish as those spices kick in.
anCnoc Distilled 2000
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 8 Sweet like confectioner's custard. MacDonald's ice cream Sunday with raspberry sauce.
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 8 A classic American oak aged Highland. Just the sort that you should have in your whisky cupboard.
AnCnoc Peter Arkle
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 7 Sadly unbalanced.
AnCnoc Vintage 1998
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 8 A truly lovely summery dram whose substantial chunkiness in the middle of the tongue lifts it out of the ordinary.
Angus Dundee Glencadam 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 7 A very unusual whisky. I liked it, but it would benefit from a firmer malty middle to support the interesting component flavours.
Ardbeg 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 8 Not from a particularly peaty period, but packed with Ardbeg's other flavours. Wonderfully distinctive.
Ardbeg 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 4 The same phenolic profile as in very young but more disciplined and rounder.
Ardbeg 17 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 8 Not the most muscular Ardbeg, but still robust.
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.10% 4 Ardbeg is one of my great favourites, and this is one of the best versions I have tasted recently.
Ardbeg 1976, Distillery Manager's Choice
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.00% 9 Real Ardbeg peatiness and smokiness.
Ardbeg 1976, Single Cask Committee bottling
Single Malt - Scotland - 51.00% 8 A 'no bones about it' Islay whisky, and a fine example of Ardbeg.
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 9 Cleaner, more lemony and oily, and less assertive, than the 24 Years Old duty free edition.
Ardbeg 1980 Kildalton
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.60% 7 Where's the peat-smoke? Not very Islay.
Ardbeg 6 Years Old, Committee Bottling
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.90% 8 I like young Islays, but this hyperactive whisky is just too frisky. The flavours need time to meld. Even with those shortcomings, it is an Ardbeg…
Ardbeg Airigh Nam Beist 1990 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 8 A welcome addition to the range.
Single Malt - Scotland - 51.20% 8 A big islander, well structured and well balanced. Just a dash of water is enough to enhance the flavours.
Ardbeg Almost There
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.00% 8 This is seamless stuff and despite the smokiness is unshowy. Only 9 Years Old? Great things are on their way.
Single Malt - Scotland - 52.10% 8 Another stunner from Ardbeg.
Single Malt - Scotland - 49.90% 8 Some people make peaty whisky, others try to. On this offering, these guys are the former, not the latter.
Ardbeg Blasda 10 Year Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 7 A delicate and rather charming afternoon (or 4am) dram. Will cause a stooshie though!
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.10%
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.10% 8 Long,stylish and balanced. Highly recommended.
