As you would expect this has all the diversity and flavour of a single malt whisky, if anything the Coffey distillation has allowed the extraction of cask flavours to come through even more in the final whisky. 84/100
A well aged grain, quite solventy and woody but also plenty of sugars and fruit apparent in the spirit. 83/100
Very light and drinkable single grain balanced with American/ex-bourbon oak influence, soft, fruity and creamy.
Great on the palate despite inherent thinness of grain whisky, touch funky on the nose and slightly over-woody. Water made this spicier and woodier so I’d drink it as it comes. 82/100
Cameronbridge 21 Years Old 1997 James Eadie Whisky Review: Quite simple, oaky with plenty of vanilla and coconut, no surprise this was a single grain or that it was matured in a refill hogshead, still quite harsh and solventy for its age. 76/100
Cambus 28 Years Old Batch 11 Whisky Review: Old & woody but still quite solventy. Thankfully this carries some oily weight which adds depth. With water this is much sweeter and smoother and full of toffee and butterscotch. 86/100
Young, light and simple 1st fill bourbon-matured grain, really displaying mostly what these casks can do plus a little grain spirit character for Port Dundas – the likes of which we won’t really see in future as it is no longer in production.
Girvan 11 Years Old 2007 The GreatDrams Single Cask Series whisky review: Very drinkable, lovely and vanillic on the nose suggesting fresh ex-bourbon cask. A little ethereal in places but with a lovely spirit character and somewhat of a sherbet or citric fizz about this one. 80/100
Lochside 52 Years Old 1963 The Sovereign whisky review: I have the feeling this was just caught on the right side of woodiness, a little camphor and new pine sap challenge the palate but are backed by such intense and dark brown sugar sweetness it is hard not to enjoy this one. An extra smile for relative rarity of such expressions and much love for old grains such as this!
Strathclyde 31 Years Old Batch 4 Whisky Review: Sweet and delicious – a well aged vanilla-filled grain whisky. 86/100
