Sweet and fruity from the Manzanilla sherry finish ads to the cereal and malt rich Glen Moray core flavours, very enjoyable. 86/100
More neutral and better balanced with a wealth of woody/sappy notes like walking through a pine forest but still with hints of the classic Mackmyra sweetened banana distillate. 84/100
Soft and sugary, the Cognac casks have highlighted the gentle fruits and florals and added some soft spices and gentle oak tannins which are a perfect complement for Tomatin’s gentle spirit character. 85/100
Another great example of the cereal-led and incredibly fruity Bere distillate. Even at 9 years old this is much fruitier than it should be at this age.
An eclectic mix of soft Highland heather brush smoke or beech wood smoke which transitions into diluted Islay peat smoke and coastal influences.
Works well both at cask strength or reduced, plenty of fruit and a sweet cake-like nature.
Another pleasant under-cooked or rather under-casked Jura. Full of minty buttery toffee and a dollop of vanilla cream for good measure too. 83/100
The result of combining Benrinnes distillate with ex-Madeira cask is a quite light and almost effervescent whisky. Sweet and peachy from the Madeira wine influence and deliciously spiced towards the end of the palate. 83/100
A superb fruity and sweet young Islay with plenty of smoke character and obvious first fill bourbon influence too. A packet of frazzles and a cigar. 84/100
A traditional Speysider, fruity with obvious influence of oak wood, well developed, zesty, cooked and preserved apples in this one. 85/100
