Glenrothes 1990/2009 Single Malts of Scotland

August 2, 2011
Thumbnail image for Glenrothes 1990/2009 Single Malts of Scotland

This is a nice dram, all flavours are well put together with nothing standing out. There is nothing really noteworthy to report, though, and it has quite an alcohol bite, too. – Rating: 83/100

Highland Park 1992/2010 Silver Seal

June 10, 2011

Because of the unusually strong sherry influence you would never guess this very fine malt to be a Highland Park in a blind tasting. – Score: 85/100

Caol Ila 1991/2009 Single Malts of Scotland

June 9, 2011
Thumbnail image for Caol Ila 1991/2009 Single Malts of Scotland

An excellent Caol Ila whose sweetness is nicely complimented by a slightly dry spiciness. Some fruity notes are there but they stay in the background – Score: 90/100

Grant’s 18 yo

May 29, 2011
Thumbnail image for Grant’s 18 yo

The port finish adds a fruity touch to this blend that nicely complenents the driness contributed by the wood. But despite the old age there is still a slight harshness to be noticed. – Score: 80/100

Littlemill 1992/2010 Dream Drams

May 21, 2011

This is a quite unusual malt with an interesting mixture of flavours. The first impression is rather strange, but it is thoroughly enjoyable if you you are a bit adventurous and don’t mind a little variation in your whisky menu. – Rating: 85/100

Ardbeg 1974/1993 Wilson & Morgan

May 14, 2011
Thumbnail image for Ardbeg 1974/1993 Wilson & Morgan

This is a very fine example of the legendary old Ardbegs, much more delicacy instead of today’s in-your-face peat. The tropical fruit aromas give it a very intriguing touch. – Rating: 89/100

Millburn 18 yo 1975 Rare Malts

May 8, 2011
Thumbnail image for Millburn 18 yo 1975 Rare Malts

This rare light-bodied dram has a great nose, but the palate is a little too spicy to make it a truly great whisky. – Rating: 86/100

Kilbeggan 18 yo

April 14, 2011
Thumbnail image for Kilbeggan 18 yo

The Kilbeggan 18 is an excellent blend that with its rather strong vanilla notes even bears some resemblance to a bourbon, but with a smoothness that sets it apart from the former. – Rating: 86/100

Sazerac 18 yo 2010 Release

April 4, 2011
Thumbnail image for Sazerac 18 yo 2010 Release

The mix of fruit, exotic spices and dry wood flavours in this rye is excellent. The age is well noticeable, but the spirit is so rich it has no problems to deal with it. – Rating: 88/100

Tomatin 1990/2008 Single Cask #16351

March 24, 2011

This malt is proof that all casks are different. It shares similarities with neighbouring cask #16352 but the flavour profile is notably more complex and richer overall. – Rating: 86/100

Tomatin 1990/2008 Single Cask #16352

March 5, 2011

A rather straightforward bourbon cask whisky. It is not bad at all but you can get comparable malts for much less money. – Rating: 83/100

Glendronach 18 yo Allardice

January 31, 2011
Thumbnail image for Glendronach 18 yo Allardice

This is not just a sherried whisky, this is a sherry whisky. I feel almost tempted to describe it as a 46% ABV oloroso but the whisky character is fully intact nonetheless. – Rating: 89/100

Greenore 18 yo

January 22, 2011

Quite a nice grain whisky with a very dense palate, not easy to pick up speficic notes. Perhaps a tad on the bitter side but still very pleasant – Rating: 84/100

Springbank 18 yo

December 28, 2010
Thumbnail image for Springbank 18 yo

A quintessential Springbank with a silky mouthfeel, very complex with lots of flavours to discover. It can act both as a winter warmer and a summer refreshment. – Rating: 88/100

Blackstone 18 yo

December 27, 2010

This is a typical “You get what you pay for” supermarket malt. It’s not really bad but the floral notes are much too dominant for an enjoyable older malt. – Rating: 74/100

Yamazaki 18 yo

November 23, 2010
Thumbnail image for Yamazaki 18 yo

A very rich sherry monster with a highly complex flavour profile. You can taste the age but the wood influence is only very gentle. – Rating: 90/100

Highland Park 18 yo

November 21, 2010
Thumbnail image for Highland Park 18 yo

A marvelous dram for relaxing on a cold evening. This one has got it all: Peat, smoke, fruit, sweetness, spice. The best value of the HP standard range. – Rating: 90/100

Johnnie Walker Gold Label

November 5, 2010
Thumbnail image for Johnnie Walker Gold Label

Quite a nice blend with a very interesting nose. One the palate it could use a little more fruity flavours. – Rating: 81/100

Glenmorangie 18 yo “Extremely Rare”

October 27, 2010
Thumbnail image for Glenmorangie 18 yo “Extremely Rare”

A sweet creamy and fruity malt with a slight spiciness that is quite a nice dram, both complex and unoffensive. But like many Glenmorangies the price is a little too high to make it a bargain – Rating: 85/100

Caol Ila 18 yo

October 21, 2010
Thumbnail image for Caol Ila 18 yo

This is a most enjoyable expression. Quite strong but not overwhelming peat combined with a nice fruitiness, rounded off with gentle spices. – Rating: 88/100
