Bruichladdich 32 Years Old 1984 Rare Cask Series Bourbon: All In whisky review: Slightly reminiscent of Calvados with both fresh and baked apple flavours paired with old oak wood in a perfect combination. Slightly drying and spicy on the palate with ginger prominent but also a big dollop of vanilla cream and lots of mature tropical fruits. 92/100

Redbreast 32 Years Old 1985 Dream Cask (46.5%, OB, Oloroso Cask #41207, 816 Bottles, 2018)

Redbreast Dream Cask

Redbreast 32 Years Old 1985 Dream Cask whiskey review: Despite being only 1 year older, I found this much more woody and redolent of chocolate then the last time we sampled it. A lot of the tropical fruit elements were hidden behind a much earthier, darker chocolate and older wood. The really reminded me of some great red wines wherein the fruity black and elder berry notes have a distinct earthiness to them adding great body. A different experience but still a very, very good whiskey! 92/100

The Spirit Still Carsebridge 52 Years Old 1964 Single Grain Scotch Whisky Review: Beautifully sweet but also fantastically proud of its grain spirit heritage, incredibly sweet, fresh and lively for its age. I could easily loose myself on the nose alone. The palate has a little bitterness from the oak wood and a zing of tropical fruit juice but these provide the perfect foil to a mass of white chocolate, vanilla, coconut and banana sweetness. The finish is a little shorter than I wanted it to be, but again for a single grain whisky exactly what I was expecting. 92/100
