Old Pulteney 15 Years Old (46%, OB, 2018)

Old Pulteney 15 Years Old whisky review: Very smooth but in a good way – palate-coating with great texture, rather than flavour-less, there is caramel, toffee and malt aplenty throughout. I had hoped for more of a sherry influence here, darker fruits, nut or chocolate – all of which I love. Rather this is more of a deep fruit and spice type dram but with a sweetness that suggests all sorts of different desserts. One for the sweet-toothed perhaps? 84/100

Paul John Brilliance (46%, OB, 2018)

Paul John Brilliance revisit: Still very delicious and drinkable, perhaps it was the heat we were sampling this at but it reminded me more of a mixture of bourbon and single malt scotch whisky. It has the cereal depth but the maturation heat and woody influences were more apperent, still a great starter dram from Paul John. 84/100

Glenlivet 9 Years Old 2006 The Un-Chillfiltered Collection whisky review: Flavour-filled and quite malty as you would expect from a relatively young expression matured in an active 1st fill butt. I actually found this still a little too spirity and feisty at 46% but it takes water well and revealed a delicious milk chocolate note under all the dried fruit and tannins. 84/100
