The Milk & Honey The Whisky Show London 2019 Whisky Review: Very woody initially and a touch herbal, when it has breathed a little this woodiness calms down a little and reveals some pretty decent whisky, reminded me of some American or South African whiskies I have tried – similar perhaps due to the combination of climate and wood interaction during maturation? 84/100

Benriach 5 Years Old 2013 The GreatDrams Single Cask Series Whisky Review: Quite light and spirity and shows signs of youth particularly in the coppery metallic nature. Not overtly peated – I picked this up blind as a dark/liqourice and burnt nature in which this gets most of its strength. Nice dark/dried fruit and sugary notes. 81/100
