More medicinal and “dirty” than your usual Caol Ila, this is an excellent and complex peaty powerhouse. – Rating: 87/100

It has a lovely nose, but palate and finish are disappointing, a rather anticlimactic dram. – Rating: 76/100

The wood has begun to take over here, but it still is a very fine dram. The finish is a bit on the short side, though. – Rating: 88/100

Littlemill 20 yo 1991/2012 Whisky Doris

The nose starts timid but develops well with water. Don’t be fooled by the light color, there is quite some flavour in this dram. – Rating: 84/100

Inchgower 1982/2010 Whisky Doris

January 12, 2012

A delicious dram from a lesser known distillery, richly flavoured with a creamy and waxy mouthfeel. – Rating: 90/100

Ledaig 9yo 2001/2011 Whisky Doris

January 9, 2012

The flavour profile of this malt is a little generic, but evertything is harmonizing very well. – Rating: 87/100

Port Charlotte 2002/2010 Whisky Doris

January 7, 2012

A great heavily peated malt, very strong smoke combined with a nice underlying sweetness. It is still a bit young and rough but it’s an excellent dram. – Rating: 89/100

Glen Grant 1972/2010 Whisky Doris

July 27, 2010

An amazing 38 year old malt that does not show its age very obviously. Almost entirely fruity and practically without wood notes. Highly enjoyable. – Rating: 88/100

Tobermory 1972/2008 Whisky-Doris

February 27, 2010

Very complex and concentrated, the lightly peated sherry fruitiness reminds me a bit of Bowmore. Wood tannins are surely there after 35 years, but not overwhelmingly strong. – Score: 88/100

Macduff 1990/2009 Whisky Doris

February 18, 2010

Needs time and water to open up. Great nose, but the palate is too herbal for my taste, and even with quite a lot of water it is pretty “hot”. – Score: 74/100

Imperial 1998/2007 – Whisky-Doris

July 30, 2009

With water added this is quite enjoyable. Good balance between sweetness and wood. – Score: 80/100
