The typical Bowmore fruitiness is balanced by quite strong peat and spices here. Some water and time is need until it fully opens up. – Rating: 86/100

Classic old-time sherry here, gorgeous nose, strong attack on the palate, then getting a little timid before growing again to a strong finish. – Rating: 85/100

The enticing fruitiness of the nose does not fully translate onto the palate. It tastes quite nice but even with water there is a sharp edge to it. – Rating: 83/100

Thoroughly enjoyable, both fresh and youthful as well as old and refined; this Clynelish is a very fine and typical aged expression of this distillery. – Rating: 88/100

Like ever so often, a promising nose doesn’t really translate onto the palate. It is all rather subdued and fragile in character. – Rating: 74/100

This is a nice dram, all flavours are well put together with nothing standing out. There is nothing really noteworthy to report, though, and it has quite an alcohol bite, too. – Rating: 83/100

An excellent Caol Ila whose sweetness is nicely complimented by a slightly dry spiciness. Some fruity notes are there but they stay in the background – Score: 90/100
