Talisker Skye Whisky Review: Much more cereal/barley led than I remember from our last tasting. A sprinkle of salt throughout and some lovely heather honey and yeasty notes shine through that are usually masked a little. This is distinctly Talisker but much more barley driven, I wonder if the relative ‘age’ of this NAS expression is creeping upwards? 82/100

Tobermory 24 Years Old 1994 The Single Cask whisky review: A very drinkable refill? sherry butt matured Tobermory. The nose and the palate show hints of that metallic/radiator nature of Tobermory’s spirit and some vaporosity – followed by brown/woody sugars, ripe/dried fruits and lots of chocolate and coffee – what’s not to like? 89/100
