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

Ledaig 12 Years Old Discovery (43%, Gordon & MacPhail, 2018)

Ledaig 12 Years Old Discovery Island single malt Scotch whisky review: For me Ledaig can be brilliant and on a par with Ardbeg with the first sip and like drinking out of stale beer can used as an ashtray from the party the night before the next. This is one of the great ones, and mostly thanks to Gordon & MacPhail’s excellent cask management here. The Sherry influence isn’t overt but just an addition of dried fruit, nut and tannin in the right places to carry this expression. The end result is actually quite amazing. 85/100
