Yum, a super expression with salt, smoke, sherry and barley malt influences throughout. A complex classic Campbeltown. 86/100
Very polished and smooth, Highland toffee, buttery caramel and creamy vanilla, some fruit and woody notes make this one a very easy drinker. 85/100
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
Very much Pot still style, woody and spice driven familiar from unmalted barley. Plenty of yellow/stone fruits present in here despite the unusual cask combination used, I’d have expected something a little darker and drier like fruitcake, instead it is peached and cream. 84/100
A delicious experience of dry and sweet from the combination of peated malt and sherry casks. Still quite a lot of minerality and salinity which had me viewing this as not your ‘usual’ Benromach. 85/100
An unusual but very nice/enjoyable expression, this still has quite a lot of citrus aroma and flavour from the base whiskey blend but it is not sharp/acidic and compliments well the very creamy chocolate nature derived from the stout casks.
Superb full of both polished highland and sticky toffee, slightly medicinal with the peat smoke similar to cherry cough drops. A fantastic and powerful mix of sweet and smoke!
Surprisingly soft and well-integrated there is something very much elemental about this whisky which more than resembles it closest neighbour on Skye. Definitively a product of its environment – the future looks bright at Torabhaig!
An eclectic mix of soft Highland heather brush smoke or beech wood smoke which transitions into diluted Islay peat smoke and coastal influences.
Again another insight into unerderlying spirit character with masses of maltiness present from Glenrothes. Slightly less vanilla/wood/cask influence though this is a little younger too.
