Burnside 18 Years Old (58.2%, The Spirit Still, Bourbon Barrel, 37 Bottles, 2018)

Burnside-18-year-old-The-Spirit-Still

The Spirit Still Burnside 18 Years Old Blended Malt Scotch Whisky Review: An odd mixture of sweet, fruity, zesty and creamy which rolls around the palate but doesn’t seem to settle into a pattern or predominant flavour. To try settle this one down or tidy it up we added a splash of water which thins it out and revealed more creamy vanilla but also suggested refill cask to me. I think I favour this one reduced where it became very easily drinkable but still echoed all of the flavours it had at cask strength. 86/100

Give-N-Tell-25-year-old-1992-The-Spirit-Still

The Spirit Still Give’N’Tell 25 Years Old 1992 Single Malt Scotch Whisky Review: A wonderful floral nose hints at vanilla pastries and desserts, the palate is much livelier and fruitier and dry pine overcomes the drying and tannic finish, a whisky that takes you on a bit of a journey and epitomises the distillery from whence it came. 89/100

Glendullan 24 Years Old 1993 Connoisseurs Choice whisky review: Apart from the initial sensation of chewing on wood chips this Glendullan expression has plenty to get excited about. Lovely tropical fruits in syrup followed by vanilla tablet, chocolate limes and Murray mints, sweeties for a long car journey on a beautiful summers day. 87/100
