Bowmore 1996/2009 Murray McDavid

September 25, 2010

A finish well done and not too overpowering. The fruity notes of the famous Pomerol mix quite well with the suprisingly strong peatiness of the Bowmore malt. – Rating: 83/100

This malt reminds my a little of the infamous durian fruit that can also give you a good whiff of cheese. But in fact I quite like it, just as I like durian. – Rating: 80/100

Macallan SMWS 24.111

September 21, 2010

A quite unusual but very enjoyable Macallan most probably from a Fino sherry cask. The richness in aromatic spice flavours is well balanced with fresh citrus notes. – Rating: 85/100

The terrific nose is backed by a sophisticated complexity of the palate that reminds me a little of Port Ellen. This malt is living proof that Caol Ila is capable of producing top class whisky. – Rating: 89/100

Inverleven 1985/1998 Gordon & Macphail

April 23, 2010

This must have been a dead cask. The taste isn’t bad, but very unspectacular. – Score: 64/100

Rosebank 1991/2004 Signatory

January 17, 2010

A smooth and gentle dram, well-balanced flavours and rather complex for its age – Score: 84/100

Springbank 1995/2008 Murray McDavid

August 4, 2009

The nose is exceptionally good, the palate is slightly wearker. But still a great whisky, well-balanced and complex – Score: 88/100
