Poit Dhubh 30 Years Old

Poit Dhubh 30 Years Old, 43% abv

A deep and intense dram with sweet and seaweed notes. Light smoke wafts throughout. A beautiful.smooth and velvety mouthfeel. Great presence and a long lingering finish.

Poit Dhubh 12 Years Old

Poit Dhubh 12 Years Old, 43% abv

Slight nose prickle at the start then warm pudding notes on the nose. A simple, rich, spicy and sweetish dram with a lot of presence. There was more of a burning than tangy sensation on the finish.

Abhainn Dearg 3 Years Old

Abhainn Dearg 3 Years Old, 46% abv

A whisky with great promise. Hay and wild grasses and a feeling of "green" are the first impressions on the nose which are then followed with a wee bit of spice - perhaps cardamom. It was quite peppery on the palate with a host of different notes - bananas, spices, whiff of nail polish and more grass. The finish was dry, peppery and most pleasant. NOTE: the price is 150 GBP for the inaugural collector's release. You can buy minis for 6.5 GBPs.

Glen Garioch 1978 18 Years Old, 59.4% abv

Rich grassy notes moving to hay stacked in a barn great the nose. Barnyard and varnish mingle in a most pleasant and extraordinary manner. Great fruit follows with an exceptional soft velvety finish. WOW!

Bowmore Cask Strength

Bowmore Cask Strength, 56% abv

An amazing dram. It starts off dry and then moves to a mild sweet solventy bouquet of aromas. The mouthfeel is fresh with ginger undertones. There is a light yet long tangy finish.

Auchentoshan Three Wood

Auchentoshan Three Wood, 43% abv

A delightful dram. It spent the first 10 years in bourbon casks, one year in Oloroso casks and was finished off in Pedro Ximinez casks for three months. Rich Christmas pudding notes with wafts of fresh forest breezes on the nose. Lovely soft velvety butterscotch on the palate with a medium to long finish. A best buy in my opinion.

Auchentoshan 21 Years Old

Auchentoshan 21 Years Old, 43% abv

Rich with cereal notes and oak on the nose. The palate is treated to poached pears and tangy citrus notes. On the whole a well balanced dram with a lovely spicy finish.

Talisker 57 Degrees North

Talisker 57 Degrees North, 57% abv

Surprisingly very light nose, almost imperceptible until some smoke wafts in. Beautiful peppers followed by grassy notes and fruit on the palate. Very smooth for 57% abv. Delightful long tangy finish.

Poit Dhubh 21 Years Old Praban na Linne

Poit Dhubh 21 Years Old Praban na Linne, 43% abv

Rich hay notes with wafts of sweet varnish followed by vanilla cream cookies on the nose. Some sea salt then peppers with an oily mouthfeel - very pleasant indeed. The medium-long finish produced a hint of mint. A very well balanced dram.
