Benriach 1994/2005 Heavily Peated Signatory

March 2, 2010

An amazing peated Speysider. I think it can be best described as “clean peat”. Without the maritime character of the Islay malts but with a distinctive medicinal character that comes close to that of a Laphroaig. And yet it is surprisingly smooth. What a great whisky! – Score: 90/100

Rosebank 1991/2004 Signatory

A smooth and gentle dram, well-balanced flavours and rather complex for its age – Score: 84/100

A nice full bodied dram, quite spicy. Be careful with water, it makes it more edgy. – Score: 85/100

Glen Grant 1990/2008 Signatory

September 22, 2009

A nice contrast between dried fruits in the nose and tropical fruits on the palate. Needs a good amount of water. Wood spice is a bit too dominant for my taste. – Score: 80/100
