1987 vintage whiskies

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Douglas Laing Laphroaig 15 Years Old, 1987
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
8 A lean and lively Laphroaig, more smoky than seaweedy. The flavours are long and persistent. Enjoyable, more-ish and appetising.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Famous Grouse 1987 Vintage Malt Whisky
Blended Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 The Grouse at its most graceful.

Glen Deveron 1987, 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Slightly less richness and wood-extract than in the 12, with which I am more familiar.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Glengoyne 25 Years Old Highland Single Malt
Single Malt - Scotland - 48.00%
8 It feels old but not fragile.

Glenmorangie Margaux Cask Finish Vintage 1987
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 This starts so promisingly, but the soapiness knocks it for me.

Gordon & MacPhail Ardmore 1987
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Very elegant and fragrant. As an apéritif with melon, basil and Parma ham.

Gordon & MacPhail Scapa 1987
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 A complex, delicate, well-balanced vintage.

Mercian 1987 Single Cask
Single Malt - Japan - 58.70%
7 More complex than the younger vintage.

Miyagikyo 1987, Cask No. 60236
Single Malt - Japan - 61.00%
7 How can whisky leave its signature behind that thick oak panelling? No chance.

Miyagikyo 1987, Cask no. 89714
Single Malt - Japan - 61.00%
7 Another example of sherry domination. Where's the balance?

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Murray McDavid 1987,
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Both the name and the medicinal character suggests the distillery of origin.

Old Malt Cask Laphroaig 17 Years Old, Rum Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
7 Confident. Slightly austere.

The Glenrothes 1987, 13 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 The flavour metaphors evoke childhood, but this is a very adult, sophisticated malt.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Yoichi Single Malt
Single Malt - Japan - 55.00%
8 Powerful yet elegant. A yokozuna of malt whisky.
