Caperdonich 21 Years old 1994 Xtra Old Particular whisky review: Quite spiced but in a really great way, massive old/tropical fruits in this one. A little camphory towards the end perhaps indicative of not the best i.e. 2nd/3rd fill or later cask but this is still good stuff and adds character rather than detracts from this whisky. 88/100

Scallywag (46%, Douglas Laing, 2018)

Scallywag blended malt whisky review: More fuller flavoured than I remember and much more complex too. Still quite fruity in nature and just a little more spice and wood than I prefer but a decent blended malt nonetheless. I guess my reservation lies in the surreptitious use of sherry casks in this blend which perhaps represents the dichotomy of Speysides’ output today but I don’t feel is indicative of the regions flavour profile in general. 78/100
