A very nice light ‘summer dram’, quite enjoyable overall, but the dilemma is: water enhances the nose but weakens the palate. – Rating: 82/100

Highland Park 1994/2012 C&S Dram Collection

May 14, 2012

This dram needs time to develop and a bit but not too much water. Everything is very gentle, not very approachable but quite pleasant after all. – Rating: 81/100

Mortlach 1998/2006 C&S Dram Collection

November 27, 2011

Very fast cask maturation here, it does not matter at all that the whisky is ‘only’ 8 years old. It is rich and creamy with a nice slightly dry fruitiness. – Rating: 86/100

Bowmore 1999/2010 C&S Dram Collection

September 3, 2011

Without water this is a very untypical and somewhat strange Bowmore. But add a spash or two and it will transfrom into a nice albeit somewhat spicy dram. – Rating: 82/100

Bowmore 13 yo C&S Dram Regional

April 3, 2011

A typical young Bowmore with a mix of fruit and smoke. It is rather smooth but also quite rich in taste at the same time. – Rating: 85/100

Tamdhu 1991/2009 C&S Dram Collection

July 29, 2010

The strong banana flavour notes make this a quite enjoyable dram. There is not too much complexity, though. – Rating: 81/100

Tullibardine 1991/2010 C&S Dram Collection

July 3, 2010

A rather generic bourbon cask malt, not bad but not earth-shattering either. – Rating: 78/100

Glencadam 1991/2006 C&S Dram Collection

March 10, 2010

Nice and well balanced, much more complex than the very pale colour suggests. – Score: 84/100

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
