SMWS 9.143 Graceful gravitas


Whisky Review: SMWS 9.143 Graceful gravitas: A delicious tropical fruit and herbal-wood filled expression that took me way back to Cheroot cigars and oddly fig and passion fruit balsamic vinegar, there is a strong dessert-wine or gooseberry wine like influence in here too. A superb expression, just delicious. 91/100

Glen Grant 1954 Rare Vintage


An astonishingly good dram from Gordon & MacPhail. There is a very nice balance to this dram that makes it all so sublime. At first it is a little closed and overpolished wood or toffee but starts to melt in your mouth. Not so much wood and fruit but masses of creamy milk chocolate really hits the spot for me. An incredible example of what Gordon & MacPhail can do with their own cask management – simply stunning! 93/100
