1986 vintage whiskies

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Balblair 1986
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Elegant and sophisticated.

Cadenhead's Ben Nevis 1986, 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 61.90%
7 Hard to guess at the high alcohol strength from the nose. Not the usual big, oily Ben Nevis character. A pleasant fruitiness keeps the sweet notes dominant.

Cadenhead's Glenturret 1986, 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.00%
7 A charming whisky, and a reminder that Glenturret is a place, not an experience.

Connoisseur's Choice Bladnoch 1986
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 The light touch of sherry helps bring out the soft, fruity, flavours.

Dewar Rattray Glenglassaugh 21 Years Old 1986
Single Malt - Scotland - 53.40%
6 “Sweet and sulphury”now, there's a catchy brand name.

Glen Garioch 1986
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.40%
7 A big, robust whisky from the days when Glen Garioch made its own peated malt. I love the idea of a smoky whisky from the edge of Speyside, but I find this slightly astringent.

Glen Garioch 25 Years Old, 1986
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.60%
8 More well-chosen wood.

Glen Moray 1986 Commemorative Bottling
Single Malt - Scotland - 64.40%
7 Robust. Complex. After dinner.

Glenfarclas The Family Casks 1986 25 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.40%
7 You have got to like woody whiskies to appreciate this one. The sweetness cannot balance the astringency.

Glenkinchie 1986 Amontillado cask finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 As a relatively restrained whisky, Glenkinchie stands up well to the amontillado finish.

Gordon & MacPhail Inverleven 1986
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
6 Light, straightforward. Delicacy without mannerism. Keep it for a romantic candlelit dinner.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Ichiro's Malt Ace of Diamonds 1986 22 Years Old
Single Malt - Japan - 56.40%
8 Intense and packs a considerable punch.

Karuizawa 1986 Cask No 7387
- Japan - 60.70%
7 Unreconstructed macho whisky

Old Malt Cask Macallan 1986 21 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
7 A good deliveryof oak and fruit,well combined. Quite a spicy character.

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.

Scott's Selection Glenrothes 1986 25 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 51.70%
7 A little underwhelming.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Talisker 1986, The Distiller's Edition
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.80%
7 Not for Talisker purists, but a highly distinctive interplay of whisky and sherry.

Wemyss Vintage Malts Autumn Berries 1986 26 Years Old
Blended Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Deceptive. The nose is fresh and fragrant. But the palate does not deliver much and the finish is so short.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Yoichi 1986 22 Years Old Heavily Peated
Single Malt - Japan - 59.00%
8 Refined,bold but elegant. Buy one.

Yoichi Single Cask, 1986
Single Malt - Japan - 61.30%
7 The typical fruitiness of the Yoichi whiskies, but less peat than I remember.
