Tormore 1995 Connoisseurs Choice Cask Strength whisky review: Very enjoyable, mostly appealing to my sweet-tooth and love of chocolate. Some cask char influences and a hint of mint in places had me guessing perhaps refill before I fully appreciated the age of this whisky! Plenty of power in here grows from a shy nose to a hugely sherry influenced finish and had me wishing this influence was spread a little more across the whole experience? Very drinkable at cask strength. 87/100

Aerstone 10 Years Old Land Cask (40%, OB, 2018)

Aerstone 10 Years Old Land Cask whisky review: An interesting expression with potential, however this still feels a little rough around the edges and reminded me of some not so savoury HP expressions I have sampled in the past where the peat influence is too dry and over-dominant. For an entry-level (£20) supermarket whisky this carries a lot more flavours than most – vanilla this certainly isn’t! 81/100
