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!

Laphroaig 14 Years Old 2000/2014 (50%, Hunter Laing, Old Malt Cask,, Sherry Butt #10432, 731 Bottles)
A lot of strong flavours in this sherry-influenced Laphroaig. This one stays on the sweet side of becoming bitter with plenty of savoury elements redolent of bbq and char-cooking. A great winter / fire-side or even Christmas Dram! One to keep you warm on a cold night. 86/100
