A very well-balanced fruity dram with no disturbing notes. It does not take much water, though. – Rating: 86/100

Older Glenturrets have a reputation of being soapy. This wonderful dram has just the tiniest hint of it, where it acts rather as a spice than as a flaw. – Rating: 89/100

Jura 1976/2012 Berry Bros.

This is a most unusual whisky and it’s truly kaleidoscopic. There are so many flavours that seem to be shifting constantly that a little of it goes a long way. – Rating: 89/100

Benriach 1976/2011 Cask 6942

May 12, 2012

The light smokiness on the palate makes this a perfect old-fashioned high end Scotch. You need to take your time to enjoy its many flavours. – Rating: 89/100

A nice fruity dram that feels a bit younger than its real age, some water does not hurt it. – Rating: 83/100

Banff 1975/2010 A.D. Rattray

December 28, 2011

A bit lacklustre at the beginning, some drops of water bring out a nice set of flavours. But this is not a bargain dram. – Rating: 85/100

Tullibardine 1976/2010 Single Cask

If you give it a little time and water, you are rewarded with a very flavoursome and complex dram. You always feel the age, but it is still very livley too. – Rating: 86/100

Dailuaine 1974 34 yo Mackillop’s Choice

March 30, 2011

The nose of this old malt is fantastic, but palate and finish fail to convince me. This may have matured some years too long. – Rating: 80/100

Glencraig 1974/2008 SMWS 104.11

March 29, 2011

A great full-bodied malt with a floral hint that is just light enough not to be disturbing. The Lomond malt is a little unusual but very very tasty . – Rating: 88/100

Ladyburn 1975/2009 Signatory

March 24, 2010

I am not a big fan of herbal whiskies, but this one almost managed to convert me. The nose is spectacular but the palate doesn’t quite live up to it. Very light yet very complex. – Score: 86/100

Banff 24.12.1974/ 10.2009 Jack Wiebers

February 22, 2010

A great old whisky, creamy and fruity with a big nose backed by a big palate. The gentle smoke blends in perfectly. – Score: 91/100
