A malt from a rather tired cask with a less than perfect nose, on the palate it catches up a little but overall it remains somewhat lacklustre. – Rating: 80/100
An unusual sherried Laphroaig, the wine takes away some of the maritime peat punch and replaces it with a nice fruitiness. – Rating: 86/100
A very pleasant mix of flavours here. This whisky is quite heavily sherried but overall it is rather subtle than in your face. – Rating: 87/100
There is not much to find in this whisky. It is mostly sweet on the palate with a light fruitiness, the nose is disappointing. – Rating: 65/100
Quite a sweet dram but extremely richly flavoured, an excellent young sherry monster. – Rating: 87/100
The trademark combination of brininess with citrus zests makes this a typical specimen from the Springbank distillery. Very good but also very expensive for a 10 yo. – Rating: 88/100
Both nose and palate of the new Laddie flagship are so packed with flavours that it’s difficult to point out single aromas. There is a ‘coastal’ element that clearly sets it apart from the old expressions. Brilliant! – Rating: 90/100
The general taste of this whisky is very nice indeed, but there is a spirty edge to it that takes away some of the pleasure.
– Rating: 83/100
Without water this is a very untypical and somewhat strange Bowmore. But add a spash or two and it will transfrom into a nice albeit somewhat spicy dram. – Rating: 82/100
South Africans can make good whisky too. It’s a bit on the spicy side, but the other flavours are strong enough to counter it. – Rating: 80/100
A head to head comparision of sherry and port finishes.
Quite nice for a blend of this age, with a rather complex flavour profile. It feels a bit “edgy” though – Rating: 81/100
This sherry finish has an unusal savoury quality to it which is not at all unpleasant. The complexity created by this is quite stunning.
– Rating: 83/100
Well, it’s certainly an interesting whisky, but this combination of flavours does not really convince me. – Rating: 74/100
This blended malt has a very promising nose, but there is a distinct bitterness on the palate that I find a bit off-putting – Score: 78/100
A nice and fruity Speysider of the “easy sipping” category, quite enjoyable but not overly complex. – Rating: 83/100
A massive bourbon nose is supported by a strong and dry palate. This whiskey proudly shows its age. It is quite dry and mildy spicy but not overly woody. – Rating: 85/100
A very flavourful Clynelish proving that age is not everything for a whisky. I like it considerably better than the 13 yo I tasted yesterday. – Rating: 86/100
A great young sherry monster at a budget price. It’s not the most complex malt on the planet, but it is extremely enjoyable nonetheless. – Rating: 85/100
Despite its pale colour this malt is pretty complex but also rather gentle. A few drops of water release even more flavours. Unusually “clean” for a Bowmore. – Rating: 83/100
