Bunnahbhain 20 Years Old 1997 Palo Cortado Finish whisky review: A delightful expression, plenty of sweet vanilla suggest plenty of ex-Bourbon maturation before the final Palo Cortado finish. I loved this plenty of buttery nut and coffee notes but without too much of the chocolate that can come from PX or occasionally Oloroso casks. An expression well-deserving of being the pinnacle of Distell’s 2018 limited releases. 93/100

Pacory Calvados Domfrontais 20 ans Review: Super-smooth, fruit juice then wood carried on oils, full of herbal tannins and utterly delicious – this reminded me of eating apple sauce before a mouthful of sage-wrapped roast pork – that brilliant combination of flavours that whilst strong all work so well together and somehow become greater than the sum of its parts. 94/100
