A wonderful dram with the wood kept in balance by the lovely fruit and spice aromas. The nose is to die for. – Rating: 91/100

The slightly waxy mouthfeel works very well together with a classic and well-balanced flavour profile. – Rating: 87/100

A very enjoyable whisky with many interesting flavours to explore, one the finish could be a bit longer. – Rating: 85/100

On one hand this is a very nice whisky with no real flaws, on the other hand I would have expected a bit more from a whisky of that age. The palate feels a bit unbalanced. – Rating: 83/100

The fruity Glenlivet style is well present, but there is quite a pronounced dryness caused by the long maturation. – Rating: 81/100

While the nose of this old grain is truly delightful, it fails to fully satisfy on the palate. The sweetness is quite dominant, though the wood is kept under control. – Rating: 83/100

Glenfarclas 105 20 yo

Very rich sherry flavours carress nose and palate and give you a feeling of laid-back luxury, only the finish is not quite on par. – Rating: 88/100

Some very nice elements can be found here, especially on the nose, but the palate feels a bit incoherent. – Rating: 84/100

It has a nice old-style touch to it but the driness combined with the spices covers the lovely fruit aromas quite a bit. – Rating: 86/100

Glen Grant 58 yo 1953 Gordon & McPhail

After the massive nose, the palate feels rather shy and lacking the complexity you would expect from a whisky of this age. Still a very fine dram but not outstanding. – Rating: 87/100

A divine combination of sherry flavours is somewhat compromised by a very dry and tannic mouthfeel. It was high time this was bottled. – Rating: 90/100

April 25, 2013

The finish overpowers the spirit quite a bit here. It still is a nice dram, but defnintely not worth the high price. – Rating: 83/100

Some very strong sherry flavours dominate this malt, the spice notes on top of that are nothing for the faint of heart. – Rating: 86/100

Glenrothes 1978/2008

Quite an enjoyable dram that shows its age with a certain driness. Altogether it is nothing really special, though. – Rating: 85/100

Dalmore is famous for its orange aromas, and this expression showcases them particularly, also it proves that Dalmore does not need sherry to shine. – Rating: 87/100

There is an interesting savoury element in this dram, lots going on on the palate, only the finish is a bit timid. – Rating: 87/100

The fruity flavours in this old malt are outstanding, but the tannic wood notes are on the verge of getting out of control. – Rating: 84/100
