Cameronbridge 39 Years Old Batch 7 whisky review: Does exactly what it says on the tin! Very drinkable aged grain with plenty of old oak wood, spirit, cereal and vanilla/white chocolate sweetness all of which confirm my assumption this was matured in an ex-bourbon cask. 87/100

Auchroisk 12 Years Old Batch 7 whisky review: Another great Speyside expression, good spirit character and balance of light/refill cask influence, this one becomes quite savoury and salty on this finish giving it a nice twist. 83/100
Speyside No. 3 8 Years Old Batch 1 whisky review: Much discussion about the origins of this one took place with the overwhelming opinion being that this probably hailed from Glenrothes distillery. As TBWC have previously bottled & named Glenrothes I guessed Strathisla, I’ll guess we may never know which distillery this really comes from but still another great wee expression from them all the same. 83/100
Teaninich 11 Years Old Batch 2 Whisky Review: Very spirit driven, just the lightest hints of 3rd refill cask going on here after 11 years. Still great, the time has tamed the distillate and removed any metallic copper character but kept the barley and fruit. A raw Teaninich appreciable for its naked spirit quality.
