Lagavulin Distillers Edition 1993

February 6, 2012

A brilliant combination of fruit and smoke. The PX sherry combines very well with the Lagavulin distillery style. – Rating: 88/100

Bruichladdich First Growth Cuvée B

October 2, 2011

A really nice wine finish here, the cheese note is barely noticeable but adds an interesting dimension to an already very flavourful dram. – Rating: 84/100

Strathisla 1994/2011 Cask Strength Edition

June 2, 2011

An excellent lightly sherried malt that nonchalantly manages to do the splits between complexity and ease of drinking. – Score: 87/100

Longmorn 16 yo

May 28, 2011

Noticeably better than the version I tasted in 2009 and also quite different. The flavour profile is a bit unusual but this is quite a pleasant dram. – Score: 84/100

Laphroaig 16 yo 1994 Cadenhead’s

May 26, 2011

This fine peated dram has got the typical Laphroaig tang, but it is not quite as flavour-laden as the standard distillery bottlings, probably because it does not seem to have been matured in a first fill cask. – Rating: 85/100

Mortlach 16 yo 1994 Cadenhead’s

May 22, 2011

If you like Mortlach for its trademark meaty style, you might be disappointed with this bottle because it has an entirely different character. It is very dry and spicy without many other flavours to balance it out. – Rating: 73/100

Tamnavulin 16 yo Master Of Malt

April 21, 2011

Showing similar cereal aromas as the original 12 yo bottling, this malt plays in a higher league. It is quite richly flavoured, but the spices are a bit too dominant for me. – Rating: 81/100

An Cnoc 16 yo

February 24, 2011

A pretty dry and spicy malt with a slight fruity touch. I’d have preferred a little less spice, though. – Rating: 81/100

Mortlach 16 yo Flora & Fauna

January 8, 2011
Thumbnail image for Mortlach 16 yo Flora & Fauna

The semi-official Mortlach botting has a fantastic old-fashioned sherry nose. On the palate it displays prominent tannins but the richness of other flavours keeps it in balance. Not quite as “meaty” as other expressions – Rating: 86/100

Bushmills 16 yo

October 19, 2010
Thumbnail image for Bushmills 16 yo

Quite smoooth and fruity, but the flavours are not very complex and the 40% bottling strength results in an unpleasant watery mouthfeel. – Rating: 78/100

Deanston 1992/2009 Douglas Laing

June 26, 2010

The sharp nose is not tamed by water. The tingle on the palate is too strong to be fully enjoyable, not to mention the lack of complexity. – Rating: 75/100

Bruichladdich Links XI – Vancouver

June 10, 2010

This fruity dram needs a few minutes to fully develop its armoas. Very sippable! – Rating: 84/100

Glenlivet Nadurra Batch 0407

February 26, 2010
Thumbnail image for Glenlivet Nadurra Batch 0407

A very nice and complex malt that should be enjoyed slowly. Needs quite a bit of water to soften the alcohol bite. – Score: 84/100

Macallan 1991 16 yo Wilson & Morgan

December 16, 2009

This whisky is not easy to handle. It needs much water until it becomes less spirity, and then the taste is diluted a bit too much for me. – Score: 77/100

Glentauchers 1991/2007 Gordon & McPhail

December 9, 2009
Thumbnail image for Glentauchers 1991/2007 Gordon & McPhail

Great nose, but on the palate the balance is a bit off towards the wood. – Score: 80/100

Lagavulin 16 yo

December 1, 2009
Thumbnail image for Lagavulin 16 yo

The epitome of an Islay malt, smoke, peat, fruit, sweetness, Lagavulin has it all. – Score: 90/100

Bowmore Bordeaux Matured 1992/2008

October 21, 2009

I like this even better than the 2007 Port Wood. Distinctly maritime with only little peat and quite fruity. Powerful! – Score: 92/100

Highland Park 1989/2005 Murray McDavid

October 16, 2009

A very nice whisky, perhaps it would have been even better if the finish was a little less dominant. – Score: 88/100

Mortlach 1991/2008 C&S Dram Collection

October 15, 2009

This is a typical Mortlach. If you like the “oxtail soup” style, then this one is a must. – Score: 91/100

Adelphi Breath of Islay 1992/2008

September 29, 2009

This is a true spice bomb. but not of the usual “wood spice” type that can get too overpowering at times. Balanced out by a slight sweetness. Almost no fruity aromas to be found here. – Score: 87/100
