The Glenfiddich Snow Phoenix; one of the best drams we've had in a very long time; it's very complex, rich and wonderfully balanced.
The Glenfiddich 19 Year Old Age of Discovery Bourbon Cask is the first exclusively bourbon cask matured expression from Glenfiddich, and it's wonderful.
The Woodford Reserve Bourbon Whiskey; one of our favourite low-cost bourbons; it's complex, spicy and well balanced.
The Benromach Organic; a well balanced and complex single malt from Benromach. The special thing about this whisky is the virgin oak casks used in the maturation process, not the fact that the barley is organic.
The Smögen 4 Years Old Wee Swede; a young and powerful single malt which will need to be watered down quite a bit to be truly enjoyed. We didn't really enjoy the spicy-sweetness on the palate.
The Auchentoshan Springwood; a great summer dram; it's a really fresh, fruity and light whisky. Highly recommended.
The Wannborga 5 Years Old; a good single malt, it's the first one that we've tried from Wannborga and we're definitely going to hunt down more of their expressions.
Spirit of Hven Tycho's Star; a very well engineered single malt. It is a young expression but it has wonderful character and elegance. We highly recommend you give it a try.
The Smögen Sherry Project 1:4; a very good whisky that would have been a lot better with a few more years of maturation. Like most whiskies from Smögen, it is very hard to find.
The Isle of Lime Shareholders Edition 2016; a beautiful 3-year-old single malt! This expression proves that young whisky can be just as flavourful and complex as older ones.
The Smögen Triple; a wonderful peated whisky that is different to anything else you'll taste. Unfortunately, it's ridiculously hard to find.
The Dalmore Regalis; a pleasant whisky which we felt lacked some of the character and depth we usually find in other Dalmore expressions.
The Caol Ila 18 Years Old; a beautifully balanced and complex Islay whisky. The peat does not overpower the other aromas and flavours but complements them perfectly.
The Highland Park Odin 16 Years Old; an impressive, balanced and strong single malt whisky that is, unfortunately, very overpriced.
The Glendronach Parliament 21 Years Old; a very intense and characterful expression that really needs a drop of water and some resting time to open up.
The Glenfiddich IPA Experiment; a very average whisky with an above average marketing budget.
The Aberlour 18 Years Old Double Cask; a magnificent and affordable single malt whisky! It's rich, bold, wonderfully balanced and full of mouthwatering flavours; a very highly recommended whisky.
Bulleit Rye Whiskey; an above average rye whiskey. You can drink it neat but this expression really shines when it's used for cocktails.
The Balcones Brimstone Whisky; a fantastic whisky! Experienced drinkers are really going to enjoy this masterpiece while newbies will find it a bit too smoky and rough.
The Togouchi 12 Years Old; a unique and different blended whisky that we felt needed a higher ABV to really shine.
The Cardhu Gold Reserve, a good and easy-to-drink single malt from Cardhu. It would make a great gift for a newbie but more experienced drinkers will not be impressed with its simplicity.
The Ben Nevis 10 Years Old; this whisky really needs time (and some water) to open up and for the flavours and aromas to make an appearance.
Cutty Sark Blended Scotch Whisky; a versatile, inexpensive, light and fragrant whisky. It's easy to sip neat but will also go well with certain whisky cocktails. Good stuff.
The Aultmore 12 Years Old; a very unique and different single malt, well worth trying.
The Auchentoshan Valinch; a stunning whisky with heaps of complexity and flavour.
The Glenrothes Peated Cask Reserve; a good single malt with a fair price tag. The peatiness isn't intense so it maintains the usual Glenrothes character with just a little added smoky complexity.
The Glenmorangie Bacalta; a very interesting roller coaster ride dram from Glenmorangie, it's strong and intense, spicy, fruity, sweet and bitter all in one. Highly recommended.
The Royal Brackla 16 Years Old; a wonderful, gentle and complex whisky; you can drink this every day and it wouldn't disappoint you.
The Benromach 15 Years Old; smooth and full of flavour, you can contemplate the nuances for hours. A very highly recommended single malt.
The Ardbeg Corryvreckan; an incredibly rich and intense single malt with a wonderful complexity and balance. We loved it and we can't recommend it enough.
