The Highland Park 10 Years Old; a disappointing expression from Highland Park, pay an extra $10 and buy the 12-year-old instead.
The Smögen Sherry Project 1:3; a monster of a single malt! There's a lot a peat and a lot of sherry. This isn't for the faint hearted. One of our favourite expressions.
The Smögen Sherry Project 1:2; a beautiful expression from Smögen. The smokiness in this heavily peated whisky takes a back seat and allows the other aromas and flavours to come through.
The Smögen Sherry Project 1:1; an interesting and unique single malt and definitely worth a try if you're a fan of heavily peated whiskies.
The Spirit of Hven Seven Stars No. 5 Alioth; another stunning whisky from Spirit of Hven's Star Series. The Alioth is not as complex as some of the previous expressions in the series but it more than makes up for it with its intensely rich flavours.
The Spirit of Hven Seven Stars No. 4 Megrez; our favourite release Spirit of Hven's Seven Stars series. This expression is very rich and intense, but at the same time it's delicate and refined ... just go buy it.
The Spirit of Hven Seven Stars No. 3 Phecda; a fantastic organic single malt from the Swedish distillery, it has everything you could ask for in a single malt: complexity, richness and intensity.
The Spirit of Hven Seven Stars No. 2 Merak; we really enjoyed this expression from the Swedish distillery, it has a lot of complexity and richness for such a young spirit and it's balanced wonderfully.
The Spirit of Hven Seven Stars No. 1 Dubhe; a fantastic expression with a very heavy price tag ... but it's worth every penny.
The Dew of Ben Nevis 12 Year Old; a surprisingly good blended whisky from Ben Nevis. The high percentage of malt whisky in this blend makes it taste very much like a single malt.
The Deanston 18 Years Old; a great 18-year-old single malt, especially when you factor in the lower than average cost compared to other 18-year-old expressions.
The Dalmore 18 Years Old; a stunning and supremely rich single malt with plenty of complexity. Lovers of sherry bombs will love this expression.
The Bowmore 12 Years Old; a fantastic dram and it's wonderfully balanced between the smokiness, oakiness, sweetness and spiciness ... there are no extremes with this whisky.
The Auchroisk 10 Years Old Flora and Fauna; a pretty good expression from Auchroisk (pronounced awr-thrusk), it's not overly complex but the flavours are rich enough and well balanced.
The Caol Ila Natural Cask Strength; a powerful and intense peated whisky from Caol Ila, it's one of the best expressions we've tasted from the distillery.
The Chivas Regal 12 Years Old; a fine whisky for the price you're paying, it's not going to knock your socks off, but it's decent stuff. We did feel that the flavours are very subdued and it could do with a slightly higher ABV.
The Auchentoshan Heartwood; a great whisky for its price! It's balanced wonderfully between the bourbon and sherry flavours.
The Glenmorangie Companta Private Edition; an outstanding single malt whisky and probably the best wine finished whiskies on the market today. The Companta is quite rare these days but there some still being sold online.
The Bruichladdich 21 Year Old Cuvee 640 Eroica; everything you'd expect from Bruichladdich, it's unique, complex and subtle, you may even, for a second or two, forget that you're drinking whisky. Highly recommended.
The Bruichladdich 21 Year Old Cuvee 407 PX; we can't find anything negative to say about this expression, it's delicious.
The Smögen Primör; a fantastic and supremely complex single malt! Yes, it's hard to find and very expensive but it is worth every penny.
Bruichladdich 21 Year Old Cuvee 382 - La Berenice; an incredible single malt from Bruichalddich, it's elegant, rich, complex and sophisticated. The fruitiness of this expression is quite unique and balanced wonderfully with the sweetness and spiciness.
The Johnny Drum Black Label; a below average bourbon that's sharp and tannic, there's also not much happening in terms of complexity or richness of flavour.
The Ardbeg Dark Cove; a terrific and complex single malt from Ardbeg, it's a little on the expensive side but we thought it was well worth the price.
The Ardbeg Kelpie; a complex and well balanced expression. The maritime theme, that Ardbeg was going for, was only evident on the nose, we couldn't pick up any sea flavours on the palate ... but maybe you will.
The Redbreast 15 Years Old; a phenomenal whiskey, it's rich, full, complex and it's won 5 Double Gold medals at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 6 years!
The Bowmore Black Rock; a very good and well priced single malt from Bowmore. There's a nice and balanced dance between the peatiness and the fruity sweetness of the sherry casks, good stuff.
Bunnahabhain Toiteach; an absolutely brilliant single malt from Bunnahabhain! It's complex and rich in flavour and there's a good balance between the smokiness, the sweetness and the floral notes.
The anCnoc Peatlands; a good, peated single malt from anCnoc; great for someone who wants to get introduced to smoky whiskies but doesn't want to start with a heavily peated expression like an Ardbeg or Lagavulin.
The Glenkinchie Special Release 1991 24 Years Old; a wonderful expression from Glenkinchie. Eventhough it's a lowland distillery, the 24-year-old has the characteristics of a Highland single malt with the intense fruitiness and oakiness.
