Glencadam 15 yo

May 20, 2011

The subtle aromas of this new version of the Glencadam 15 don’t give the palate too much of a challenge, but overall this malt is rather pleasant. – Rating: 81/100.

Glenfarclas 15 yo

February 10, 2011
Thumbnail image for Glenfarclas 15 yo

Quite a dry sherry dram with rich aromas and a full body. The barrel char smokiness of the finish is almost a little too strong, though. – Rating: 85/100

Dalmore 15 yo

February 4, 2011

This is a rich sherried dram as could be expected of Dalmore, but for my taste it’s a bit too much on the dry side to be fully enjoyable. – Rating: 81/100

Glenfiddich 15 yo Solera Reserve

January 28, 2011

A very enjoyable malt made using the solera system known from sherry. It is very well balanced and rich in flavours. – Rating: 84/100

George T. Stagg 2009 Release

December 20, 2010
Thumbnail image for George T. Stagg 2009 Release

A top class bourbon that can be enjoyed neat but deveolps its full complexity only after the addition of water. Many flavours are blending into a continuum that you don’t do justice by dissecting it. – Rating: 92/100

Glenlivet 15 yo

December 17, 2010
Thumbnail image for Glenlivet 15 yo

The trademark fruity creaminess of Glenlivet is joined by nutty and caramel notes imparted by the French Oak casks. Very sippable – Rating: 83/100

Johnnie Walker Green Label

November 4, 2010
Thumbnail image for Johnnie Walker Green Label

A nicely balanced vatting of Caol Ila, Talisker, Linkwood and Cragganmore where all components shine through but none dominates. The best value of the Johnnie Walker range. – Rating: 83/100

Karuizawa 15 yo

October 11, 2010

A great balance between smoke and full-flavoured sherry. Very very nice, but the 40% bottling strength makes it a wee bit watery. – Rating: 85/100

Old Pulteney 1991/2006

September 27, 2010

Very complex and very well balanced. This is a highly enjoyable malt that can be sipped drop by drop. There is a minimal bitterness but it’s not disturbing in any way. – Rating: 87/100

Balvenie 15 yo Single Barrel

May 30, 2010
Thumbnail image for Balvenie 15 yo Single Barrel

A quite enjoyable malt, but that slight bitter note keeps it from being really good. Might be just that particular cask, though. – Rating: 84/100

Bowmore 15 yo Mariner

April 15, 2010

Very rich in many different flavours, not a peat-in-your-face malt. Suprisingly smooth, maybe a even bit too much. I think it would deserve a bit more punch. – Score: 85/100

Lochside 1981/1996 Gordon & McPhail

December 19, 2009

Very complex and well-balanced, perhaps a bit watery due to the bottling strength of 40%. – Score: 89/100

Longmorn 15 yo 1992/2008 A. D. Rattray

November 19, 2009

Needs quite some water, a quite nutty dram with much wood spice. Could be a bit more balanced. – Score: 82/100

Benrinnes 15 yo

November 18, 2009
Thumbnail image for Benrinnes 15 yo

A very complex sherry dram that you can enjoy drop by drop, noticeable tannins but not really bitter. I like it very much. – Score: 87/100

Bruichladdich 15 yo

October 31, 2009

A very nice balance of spice and fruity sweetness. The amount of finish is just about right making it a very enjoyable malt.
– Score: 84/100

Glen Garioch 15 yo

September 21, 2009
Thumbnail image for Glen Garioch 15 yo

A simple middle-of-the-road malt. No weaknesses and no strengths. – Score: 74/100

Dalwhinnie 15 yo

September 18, 2009
Thumbnail image for Dalwhinnie 15 yo

A gentle base malt with quite a lot of spicy wood. – Score: 77/100

Laphroaig 15 yo

August 19, 2009

Lacks the punch of the 10 yo in favour of more complexity. Fruitiness diminuishes from nose to finish, “medicinality” increases. – Score: 88/100

Bowmore Darkest 15 yo

August 14, 2009
Thumbnail image for Bowmore Darkest 15 yo

A great mix of sherry and peat (approx. 70/30) The name “Darkest” is fitting not only beacuse of the colour. It really tastes “dark”. – Score: 88/100

Springbank 15 yo

August 4, 2009
Thumbnail image for Springbank 15 yo

Complex with a strong wood influence, A bit too spicy for my taste. – Score: 79/100
