Oxford Rye Whisky Batch 5 Red Red Rye

toad-oxford-rye-whisky-batch-5packshot-lg

Another rich and cereal led expression as I’ve come to expect from TOAD’s Rye expressions. This is up there with the best of them (possibly Batch 1). The cask combination delivers ginger beer and jammy black fruits and of course that superb colour. I’m still not convinced about the pricing of this expression though there are certainly no complaints about what is inside the bottle. 85/100

Dailuaine 12 Years Old 2008 PX Finish

Dailuaine 12 Years Old 2008 PX Finish Whisky Review: Thick and dark dram, full of coffee cake, tiramisu and black forest gateaux. That heavy and touch sulphury Dailuaine character here adds meat to the fibrous nutty and ground coffee nature. Again a perfect balance is struck between weighty PX influence and spirit nature. 86/100
