Williamson 6 Years Old 2011 Cask #130 whisky review: Probably would have been my dram of the night if the Cask Islay (Caol Ila?) hadn’t been so darned good! A lot earthier in its peat this one and some substantial cask influence despite the use of a bigger vessel (butt) over a relatively short period. Perhaps if left a few more years this one could have been truly amazing? 87/100

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
