Scotch Whisky - Single Malt

Benromach 21 Years Old, Old Tokaji Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.00%
7 Rather unbalanced. The nose is far more promising than the palate. What's the point of the finish?

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Benromach 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 Balanced and poised.

Benromach 8 Years Old Maderia
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.00%
7 The nose was promising but the palate did not deliver all. Water stresses the bitterness.

Benromach Burgundy Wood
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.00%
7 Give this whisky time to open on a sweeter side.

Benromach Organic
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 This suggests a young spirit and lots of oak. Not balanced.

Benromach Origins
Single Malt - Scotland - 0.00%
7 Balance and character. Recommended.

Benromach Origins Batch 2 Port Pipes 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
8 Wholly matured in port pipes. Shows great balance and style for a 12 Years Old and is marked accordingly.

Benromach Traditional
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 A spring meadow with dew on the grass.

Berry's Best Lowland 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 A fine dram to start off a tasting, but not enough interest to engage you the whole night long.

Berry's Best Orkney, 14 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 Intense salt. Very slight iodine.

Berry's Own Selection Aberlour 1994
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Kicking up your heels as well as soothing. To be sipped far from the city buzz.

Berry's Own Selection Auchentoshan 1983
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Subtle aromas and flavours, but beautifully composed.

Berry's Own Selection Auchroisk 1991 20 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.60%
7 An interesting dram. The palate is lighter than expected but fresh and lively. Perfect companion for a fruit salad with a ginger icecream.

Berry's Own Selection Benrinnes 1989
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Bizarrely, the nose reminded me of an Argentinian Torrontes. Where's the famed Benrinnes meatiness?

Berry's Own Selection Bladnoch 1992
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 So subtle it's barely there, but an intriguing mystery.

Berry's Own Selection Bowmore 1995
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.20%
7 A sunny malt. Quite sharp and spirity but a pleasant aromatic freshness. Could be a thirst quenching for some. Water does not cut all edges.

Berry's Own Selection Caol Ila 1996
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.00%
7 Intense and in character. A fairly simple Caol Ila but a goody.

Berry's Own Selection Caol Ila 26 Years Old, 1984
Single Malt - Scotland - 53.70%
8 I prefer this neat, but whatever your preference, this is an exceptional Caol Ila.

Berry's Own Selection Clynelish 1992
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Tight and hard to love.

Berry's Own Selection Clynelsih 1982
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 A very pleasing dram with decent balance, but just a touch too discreet.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Berry's Own Selection Dailuaine 1985
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 A good example of a little seen distillery.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Berry's Own Selection Glen Elgin 1975
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 By today's standards, an unusually peaty Speysider.

Berry's Own Selection Glen Grant 1972
Single Malt - Scotland - 51.00%
8 A well matured and well balanced malt. The sherry notes tend to muzzle the distillery character. An iron hand in a velvet glove!

Berry's Own Selection Glen Grant 1972, 33 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 After a nose that can only be described as “hairy” it rather loses focus.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Berry's Own Selection Glen Grant, 37 Years Old, 1972
Single Malt - Scotland - 51.80%
8 A dry character. Quite strictly framed by oak but releasing an interesting and complex spicy character.
