Tamdhu 12 Years Old
Light and silky Tamdhu spirit reveals it’s fruitiness whilst being well balanced with sherry cask maturation. Really quite moreish. 84/100
Casks of Lindores STR Wine Barrique
Careful STR treatment hasn’t stripped away all the good wine influence back to cardboard. Plenty of Lindores spirit notes present also with more than a little tannic and chewy wood. Definitely improving. 83/100
Lindores New Make
Once again I’m impressed with the quality of Lindores new make with it’s lovely mixture of fruit and cereal and nutty aromas and flavours.
POWERS LAUNCHES THE WORLD’S FIRST EVER 100% IRISH RYE WHISKEY

Proudly honouring the pioneering spirit of Powers Irish Whiskey, this ground-breaking release uses 100% Irish rye for the first time ever. The result is Powers Irish Rye, a complex and flavourful Irish whiskey that is set to shake up the increasingly popular rye whiskey category.
Balvenie 12 Years Old Doublewood
Smooth and honeyed, a very well put together expression from The Balvenie. I feel I picked out more of the sherry component more clearly possibly due to age or experience or perhaps this batch the sherry influence is more defined. A real pleasure to revisit and simply enjoy. 84/100
