Lochside 52 Years Old 1963 The Sovereign whisky review: I have the feeling this was just caught on the right side of woodiness, a little camphor and new pine sap challenge the palate but are backed by such intense and dark brown sugar sweetness it is hard not to enjoy this one. An extra smile for relative rarity of such expressions and much love for old grains such as this!

Glengoyne Teapot Dram Batch 6 (59.3%, OB, 2772 Bottles, 2018)

Glengoyne Teapot Dram Batch No. 006

Glengoyne Teapot Dram Batch 6 whisky review: Another fantastic Sherry Bomb, during the tasting we sampled this alongside Glengoyne 21 Year Old expression which really highlighted the new oak wood and fresh fruit character of the Teapot Dram. Youthfulll and exuberant but with masses of sherry-influenced flavour and characteristic Glengoyne fruity spirit. Many at the tasting were convinced that this 6th edition was as good as the 1st if not better. 91/100
