Mortlach 1987 Connoisseurs Choice

cc-mortlach-1987-boxbtl

Mortlach 31 Years Old 1987 Connoisseurs Choice whisky review: A superbly aged and sherried Mortlach. Has that slightly smoky and fireworks/struck match quality that belies the age and production process of this malt. Overtly sherried but not overly woody, more chewy and earthy along with that smoke. Superb. 90/100

Glenfiddich 23 Years Old Grand Cru Cask Strength

Glenfiddich-Grand-Cru-CS

Glenfiddich 23 Years Old Grand Cru Cask Strength whisky review: Sadly I haven’t tried the released Grand Cru expression at 40% to compare this too, in honesty this was a little closed and woody at 56.4% and required a drop of water. The result was an explosion of sweet fruit, cereal malted barley and gentle woody oak balanced to perfection. 90/100

Eigashima 2011 The Kikou-Ki Series

Eigashima 2011 Just-Bottle-510x600

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
