Scotch Whisky - Single Malt

Old Malt Cask The Macallan (Rum Finish), 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
7 All rather insubstantial but attractive enough though.

Old Masters Bladnoch 1992
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.50%
7 A two-sided malt, with two different expressions on the nose and on the palate. The alcohol needs to be tamed with water.

Old Masters Bladnoch 1992 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.10%
7 Quite assertive for Bladnoch. Not keen on the papery character. Quality of wood?

Old Masters Bladnoch 1992 13 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.90%
6 I know, I know – it's a Lowland! Still, I want a little more from a whisky. Full stop.

Old Masters Bruichladdich 1991 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.70%
7 The Laddie in austere mood. Best before dinner.

Old Masters Clynelish 1989
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.10%
7 Very much in line with recent bottlings. Not especially peaty, but crisp, clean and decisive in it's flavours.

Old Masters Glen Garioch 18 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 53.90%
8 A rich aromatic profile and a soft texture give that whisky a sensuous feel. The perfect afterdinner dram to enjoy a moment of calm and of solitude maybe…

Old Masters Glen Garioch 1988, 18 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 53.90%
7 A big warming dram whose generosity of flavour comes as a relief after a couple of meanies.

Old Masters Glentauchers 1990 14 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.80%
7 Serve as an aperitif. Chilled?

Old Masters Glenturret 1986
Single Malt - Scotland - 51.30%
7 As refreshing as a herbal tea but much more rewarding and fulfilling. Would suit a leg of lamb with mint sauce.

Old Masters Ledaig 14 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.10%
7 The aroma promises more than the whisky delivers.

Old Pulteney 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 A complex and distinctive malt.

Old Pulteney 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Forget about the first nose and enjoy that luscious exotic profile. But no water, thank you.

Old Pulteney 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 A full bowl of stewed and dried fruit. For a breakfast treat?

Old Pulteney 15 Years Old Millennium Edition
Single Malt - Scotland - 0.00%
7 More distillery character than a 15 Years Old identified as “sherry-aged” that I tasted some months ago.

Old Pulteney 15 Years Old, Cask Strength
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.80%
8 A slightly odd melange of flavours and textures...but it works.

Old Pulteney 15 Years Old, Sherry Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 If you like whisky on your therapeutic porridge (and who doesn't?) this is the salty one.

Old Pulteney 17 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 A great combination of complexity and simplicity. A liquid fruit basket. Yummy.

Old Pulteney 17 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 An absolute cracker. Delicate, elegant. More than a golden promise. A gem delivery !

Old Pulteney 18 Years Old, Sherrywood, Cask 1498
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.90%
8 I hope the new owners value this distillery. Its location, stillhouse design and – most important – its whisky, bring something special to the far north.

Old Pulteney 21 Years old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 A two times dram. Fruity sweetness followed by a dry spiciness. The two faces meet up on time.

Old Pulteney 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 44.00%
7 A very engaging whisky with good integration.

Old Pulteney 40 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 51.30%
8 The sherry dominates on the oaky side. Too much for me but if you like woody corpulent whiskies, this one is for you.

Old Pulteney Good Hope WK209
Single Malt - Scotland - 52.00%
8 An outdoor dram which comes back indoors as it opens. For a winter warmer up.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Old Pulteney Isabella Fortuna WK499
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 A charming dram. Rich, elegant, vibrant. A perfect uplifting cordial.
