Lowland single malt scotch whisky

Glasgow 1770 Peated No.1

Glasgow 1770 Peated No.1 Whisky Review: A lovely expression with plenty of new oak character, sweet and sublime smoke. A gentle smokiness and traces of youth in the spirit which is entirely expected, I hope as this expression is matured and ages this retains its smoke. 84/100

Auchentoshan Sauvignon Blanc Finish

Auchentoshan Sauvignon Blanc w Box

Auchentoshan Sauvignon Blanc Finish Whisky Review: I haven’t been a huge fan of Auchentoshan for a while, or rather I haven’t had an OB expression that I could really say I liked or enjoyed from their older range. Admittedly I haven’t tried an awful lot of their new standard range. This one however is very different from their older expressions at least. Hugely drinkable and smooth but not light in character by any means. The Sauvignon Blanc cask influence is very complementary to Auchentoshan’s spirit character here and really adds much more sweetness, fruit and florality. Perfectly drinkable at room temperature, however that sweetness would probably last if this one was chilled slightly also.  83/100

Lindores Abbey Cask Blend

Lindores Abbey Cask Blend

Lindores Abbey Cask Blend review: A little too feisty at 60% ABV, but packed full of dried fruit, spice and toffee, well-reduced with water it reveals some cask and some new make spirit characters and suggest that things are maturing quite nicely at Lindores Abbey distillery – a taste of things to come. 82/100
