Teeling Single Grain (46%, OB, 2018)

Teeling Single Grain whisky review: Initially a little spirity on the nose but grat palate and flavour, with time/breathing mellows into a rich and sweet lemon curd, some tannin and spice but I didn’t place the wine cask – I mistook it for the grainy spice from unmalted barley or rye cereals. 80/100

The English Smokey Single Malt Whisky (43%, OB, 2020)

The English Smokey Single Malt Whisky Whisky Review: A superb smokey dram full of buttery cereal barley and that distinct fruit spirit character tempered with masses of Vanilla from Bourbon barrel maturation. The result is a reminiscent of childhood summers so hot that the tarmac melted and so did your ice-cream – but then you could pop the tar bubbles with your lolly stick! 86/100

Bunnahabhain Stiuireadair (46.3%, OB, 2018)

Bunnahabhain Stiuireadair Whisky Review: When I originally opened this I think I found it quite youthful/spirity and a little over-spiced, however after some time in the bottle and allowed to breathe a little I have come away with a much greater appreciation of this whisky. It is in fact very well constructed with a great mix of oily, buttery caramel and rich spice, fruit and nut sherry influence. It really is a classic Bunnahabhain with that wonderful spirit character you either love (like me) or hate. 84/100
