SMWS 10.118 Enthralling pink and peat intensity Whisky Review: A lovely mixture of sweet port influence and smoke. I was worried the palate at cask strength may have been a little overpowering but actually the sweet and peat aren’t too much. A nice earthy/turfy influence grounds this whole whisky while gentle spices fizz in the background. A pleasant surprise, a wonderful nose sets the standard for a great dram throughout. 87/100

Longmorn 10 Years Old Batch 3 Whisky Review: A little bit spice and a lovely hint of florality on the nose, on the palate this has much more spirit character than cask for me and again I’m drawn to the conclusion that this is a lovely spirit-driven expression thanks to refill cask maturation. Very little oak in here but lots of drinkable Longmorn spirit. 84/100

A Fine Christmas Malt 2019 whisky review: Hard to fault Billy’s tasting notes which describe this one perfectly. This whisky is full of fairground or sweetie shop or possibly even Christmas market flavours such as classic donuts, nut brittle and barley sugars. I was hoping perhaps for a wee bit more sherry influence to tip it into Christmas cake or pudding territory but this is a fine quaffable malt all the same. 84/100
