The herbal peatiness makes for quite an unusual whisky style with the wood remaining very much in the background. It tastes quite odd on the first sip but it grows on you and greatly benefits from a splash of water. – Rating: 86/100

Ardmore 1991/2013 Rum Barrel Malts of Scotland

March 12, 2015

If you expected a sweet elixir, you will be disappointed. This whisky is very elegant, a mix of peat and fruit with a just light sweetness. – Rating: 87/100

Glencadam 22 yo Abbey Whisky Rare Casks

The whisky has pleasant fruity aromas and a nice creamy mouthfeel, but the spiciness – pepper in particular – is overpowering. – Rating: 82/100

Glen Grant 22 yo 1992/2014 Single Malts Of Scotland

This is definitely my favourite of the recent SMOS bottlings. The tropical fruit aromas are wonderful, and even though water does make it even better it is perfectly sippable undiluted. – Rating: 88/100

It still has the lightness Knockdhu is known for, but the long time in the casks have also given it a nice richness not seen in their younger bottlings. – Rating: 86/100

The sherry is not very obvious here, but who cares because this is an immensely fruity and delightful whisky. – Rating: 92/100

Cardhu 22 yo 1982

June 21, 2012

Rich, creamy and complex, this bottling shows that Cardhu can be more than an unoffensive ‘summer dram’. – Rating: 89/100

Littlemill 1989/2011 Malts of Scotland

June 6, 2012

Some very nice flavours can be found in this malt, but despite being cask strength, there is a somewhat watery undercurrent. – Rating: 86/100

Tullibardine 1988/2010

Another somewhat disappointing Tully. The nose is a bit underwhelming, the palate shows more promise but still has a slightly lackluster feel to it. – Rating: 75/100

Glen Moray 22 yo SMWS 35.29

August 29, 2010

A nice spicy and fruity dram which I find rather enjoyable. But that piece of tabloid level SMWS lyrics is just over the top. – Rating: 83/100

Convalmore 1977/1998 Cadenhead

March 27, 2010

A very “beefy” and extremely complex malt, all elements are very well balanced. The first herbal whisky I really loved. – Score: 93/100
