Eigashima 2011 The Kikou-Ki Series (58.4%, Dekanta, Port Ellen Cask #11055, 300 bottles, 2018)

Eigashima 2011 Just-Bottle-510x600

Eigashima 2011 The Kikou Dekanta 3rd Anniversary whisky review: Delicious rich and nutty, so full of peanut brittle and hints of maritime notes, there are hints of iodine and a little ashen smoke towards the end but this really has that Port Ellen chamois leather mustiness quality that I suspect the producers were hoping for. A great mixture of young whisky and old cask. 90/100

Carsebridge 52 Years Old 1964/2017 (40.8%, The Spirit Still, Bourbon Barrel, 31 Bottles)

Carsebridge-52-year-old-1964-The-Spirit-Still

The Spirit Still Carsebridge 52 Years Old 1964 Single Grain Scotch Whisky Review: Beautifully sweet but also fantastically proud of its grain spirit heritage, incredibly sweet, fresh and lively for its age. I could easily loose myself on the nose alone. The palate has a little bitterness from the oak wood and a zing of tropical fruit juice but these provide the perfect foil to a mass of white chocolate, vanilla, coconut and banana sweetness. The finish is a little shorter than I wanted it to be, but again for a single grain whisky exactly what I was expecting. 92/100
