Teeling 24 Years Old Vintage Reserve Collection whisky review: Superb, musty and woody on the nose the Sauternes finish has worked wonders here with a lovely woody and herbal honey with touches of grape, orange and pineapple, delicious. 87/100

Teeling Brabazon Bottling Series 1 whisky review: Great balanced sherry dram, not overtly sherried – I’m not sure I’d call this a monster?
Teeling Small Batch Whisky Review: Creamy and well balanced a very nice blend that hasn’t been over-sweetened by Rum cask finishing. 83/100
Teeling Single Grain whisky review: Initially a little spirity on the nose but grat palate and flavour, with time/breathing mellows into a rich and sweet lemon curd, some tannin and spice but I didn’t place the wine cask – I mistook it for the grainy spice from unmalted barley or rye cereals. 80/100

Heaven Hill 9 Years Old American Whiskey whisky review: Too spicy initially on the palate, a little too oily/buttery and really not sweet enough for my liking. 75/100
Three Ships 6 Years Old batch 1 whisky review: Great nose but far too strong on the palate, too spirity and spicy, needed plenty of water to reveal polished butterscotch and that toffee/coffee from the nose. 80/100
The English Small batch Release Rum Cask Matured whisky review: Quite sweet on the nose, gets a little woodier with more brown sugars on the palate. A very nice Rum cask matured expression that keeps plenty of distillery character. 84/100
The English Smokey Single Malt Whisky Whisky Review: A superb smokey dram full of buttery cereal barley and that distinct fruit spirit character tempered with masses of Vanilla from Bourbon barrel maturation. The result is a reminiscent of childhood summers so hot that the tarmac melted and so did your ice-cream – but then you could pop the tar bubbles with your lolly stick! 86/100
Chauffe Coeur Reserve VSOP Calvados Calvados Review: Deliciously tart fruit and spicy oak wood, becomes chocolatey, a great aperitif as it is light in both body and palate. 86/100
