The Milk & Honey The Whisky Show London 2019 Whisky Review: Very woody initially and a touch herbal, when it has breathed a little this woodiness calms down a little and reveals some pretty decent whisky, reminded me of some American or South African whiskies I have tried – similar perhaps due to the combination of climate and wood interaction during maturation? 84/100

Glenury Royal 22 Years Old 1976 Connoisseurs Choice (40%, Gordon & MacPhail, 1998)

Glenury Royal 1976 Connoisseurs Choice (Bottled 1998) Whisky Review: Hard to put into perspective, perhaps a slightly disappointing dream dram. Subtle in character and maturation but then that made these G&M classics so affordable. Still two big ticks off of my list in both distillery and vintage. A reminder that these pearls (rather than gems) can be found at sensible prices in many whisky bars. 84/100

Bunnahabhain Stiuireadair (46.3%, OB, 2018)

Bunnahabhain Stiuireadair Whisky Review: When I originally opened this I think I found it quite youthful/spirity and a little over-spiced, however after some time in the bottle and allowed to breathe a little I have come away with a much greater appreciation of this whisky. It is in fact very well constructed with a great mix of oily, buttery caramel and rich spice, fruit and nut sherry influence. It really is a classic Bunnahabhain with that wonderful spirit character you either love (like me) or hate. 84/100
