Aberfeldy 1999 - Gordon & MacPhail
Polished leather and spice with a sherry hint on the nose. The palete brings sweet treacle, dark chocolate and a faint whiff of smoke. The finish is long, spicy and the faint hint of smoke appears again.


£52.00

Aberlour A'bunhadh
A lovely cask strength Speysider, orange, black cherries, dried fruit and ginger, spiked with dark bitter chocolate and enriched with sherry and oak.


£75.00

Ailsabay
A peaty lowland from the big grain distillery at Girvan, very young but rich and peaty all the same.


£62.50

Ardbeg Uigeadail
Peat, smoke and fire with hints of the sea and iodine, almost medicinal. A very powerful Islay cask strength.


£65.00

Ardbeg Auriverdes
The world cup Ardbeg (green and gold) which is back to the citrus stuff amonst the peat and smoke. Not as heavy as some of the other Ardbegs but very drinkable. Apologies for the price but I got this via a route that meant I have to charge this. Still cheaper than auction.


£110.00

Ardbeg Kildalton 2014 edition
Only had the briefest of tastes but peated (unlike the original) and citrus coming through well, like the more delicate 1978 in character but this was only a small dram so I may be wrong!


£175.00

Ardbeg 21
Time has eased the peat on this one, the bourbon cask shows through more with the vanilla and wood blending nicely. A very complex and different Ardbeg to spend time with and savour.


£390.00

Ardbeg An Oa
The new Ardbeg has more of the citrus and marmalade character and less of the seaweed, tar, kippers and ships ropes, I like the more delicate side of Ardbeg.


£52.50

Ardbeg Corryvrecken
Big cask strength Ardbeg with citrus hints and loads of peat smoke as you would expect but surprisingly smooth even at 57% ABV and being quite young, not age statement but I would suggest circa 9 years for most of it - but do not hold me to it, I just remember when the first European Oak was laid down by Stuart which has been used for this..


£70.00


Ballantines Original Character
A blend at 47%. No idea what it is like but normal Ballentines is a good blend.


£75.00

Bells Special Reserve Pure Malt
A pure malt (blended or vatted malt is what we would say today) from Bells. Only produced between 2000 and 2006 so a rare botle to find.


£25.00

Benromach 10yo
Toffee, caramel (not added) and a little soft smoke.


£40.00

Benromach 10yo - 100 proof
Oh my goodness what a fantastic beefy sherry speyside whisky, all the complexity and depth that you would expect from Benromach but turned up to 11. One of my top 5 whiskies for everyday enjoyment.


£55.00

Benromach 15yo
A deeply satisfying sherry dram with depth and complexity you can explore time and again. The thinking maltheads malt.


£58.00

Benromach Organic - Gordon & MacPhail
Oak, vanilla and a delicate sweetness a possible a little fruit on the nose. The palate is fantastic rich oak, vanilla sweetness without cloying - Moffatt toffee anyone. The flavour lasts and fills your mouth. It might be young but it doesn't display it, this is a great whisky.


£42.00

Benromach Peat Smoke - Gordon & MacPhail
Sweet burnt sugar aroma with wood smoke and phenols. Coal smoke and barley fill the mouth finishing slightly sweet and malty - great whisky.


£43.00

Bladnoch 1993 - Gordon & MacPhail
Sweet, floral, a dry grassiness with a hint of spice & liquorice - delicate & fragrant. A gentle lowlander.


£110.00

Bowmore 14yo single cask hand bottled at Bowmore October 2014
A perfect foil for the one above, all gentle smoke with a creamy mouthfeel, smoked cream works for me.


£115.00

Bowmore 10yo single cask (bourbon)hand bottled at Bowmore October 2015
Vanilla fruit notes give way to the Bowmore smoke and small hints of iodine.


£95.00

Bowmore 16yo Cadenheads cask end
Single cask bottling from the warehouse tour at Cadenheads in Campbeltown and now 2 years older than when I firest tried it. Age has not diminished this one and a classy smoky dram continues to develop. Worth buying all three to see how the colour changes and the flavours.


£90.00

Bowmore Blackrock
A Travel Retail exclusive or lucky little independents like me and it is a litre to start so bonus! A younger more fiesty version of the Darkest for me, rather enjoyable.


£65.00

Bruichladdich God Save the Queen Valinch - 50cl
I cannot tell you what this is like as I did not get the chance to try it as I got the last bottle. Very collectable and if it is a Laddies will it be bad whisky? No I do not think so either.


£140.00

Bruichladdich Micro Provenance 2005
All coconut and vanilla with a hefty alcohol bite (63.6% ABV) but a good fruity sipping whisky even so, Bruichladdich, bourbon cask and no ACEing, lovely stuff.


£125.00

Bruichladdich 23yo Cadenheads cask end
Classic and classy Laddie with tropical fruit and coconut, summer in a glass.


£140.00

Bruichladdich PHD - Feis 2016

£60.00

Bruichladdich 1994 Cask Strength - Gordon & MacPhail
Now sadly discontinued as a range and the last bottle I have of this gem. Hints of sherry, vanilla and a citrus edge on the nose, orange and milk chocolate on the palate and a gentle menthol finish.


£125.00

Bunnahabhain 18yr
Honey nuts and a hint of the sea. A huge sherry hit followed by oak and vanilla hints and a fine richness that last a long time before bringing spice and drying slightly to leave you wanting more. Now unchillfiltered and 46.3%


£120.00

Bunnahabhain 12yr
The old 12 was great but this is the new one at 46.3% and unchillfiltered. It is brilliant, richer, deeper, longer and more Bunny than a field of rabbits.


£52.00 w

Bunnahabhain 8yo Heavily peated - MacPhails Collection
Booming peat and soft silky Bunny seem to work for me. Not the most complex but great peaty fun.


£35.00

Bunnahabhain Stiuireadair
A new no age statement (NAS) from Bunnahabhain (translation is Helmsman) fully matured in sherry casks, pleasant enough and clear sherry influence.


£40.00

Caol Ila 1999 - Gordon & MacPhail
This one is a rubbery version, meaty, flat and slightly dirty with only limited sweetness. Very different from the normal distillery offering.


£40.00

Cotswolds Whisky - first release 2018
First release of whisky from the Cotswold distillery and it is rather enjoyable, toasted oak and heavy bourbon influence with a touch of fruity fun at the end. The whisky suggests the wood policy is a very fresh and highly active bourbon cask that has a huge influence.


£45.00

Dailuaine 16yo
Madiera cake with hints of chocolate and orange on the nose, sherry hints and more oranges with fruit cake spices with a nutty well rounded finish.


£68.75

Rich sweet sherry, dark chocolate, figs, marzipan and vanilla with a hint of parma violets. A classic sherried Highlander.


£43.50

Edradour 2005 Unchillfiltered - Signatory
Like the 10yo but delivers bigger hits across the flavour range - a big brother of the classic sherried Highlander.


£51.50

Garrison Bros Single Barrel Texas Bourbon
Big complex frontier whisky, loads of vanilla oak and sweetness but a silkiness too. New kids on the block but an exciting addition to the bourbon world.


£99.00

Glenallachie 22yo Cadenheads
Vanilla and cut grass nose, creamy lemon icing with a touch of herbs and grass to finish, picnic time.


£64.00

Glendronach 8yo "The Heilan"

Floral, gentle yet complex and a very sophisticated dram.


£46.00

£55.00

Glen Grant 2005 Gordn & MacPhail
Usual fun sticky sherry casked G&M pop.


£40.00

Glenlivet Archive 1990s
What an absolute belter this is, no light fluffy stuff here, proper rich deep Glenlivet with fruit cakes and heavy sherry influence. This is how Glenlivet can be at its best, like a good aged G&M one from 1960s.


£105.00

Glenlivet Cadenheads Cask End from the Warehouse Tour
A true gem of a tutti-fruiti whisky. Slides down like an Angel caressing your throat, not burn, massive mouthfeel and a magic length. A fantastic example of what a brilliant distillery Glenlivet is when not mass produced.


£140.00

Glen Lossie 22yo Cadenheads
Freshleather and rich fruit cake with a hint of smoke nose, ashy notes and dried banana to manuka honey and creamy pears.

Tasting notes to follow but expected to be as good as the 2017.


£60.00

The follow on from the Valhalla collection and the official tasting notes point to mangoes, pineapple with vanilla and hints of smoke.


£220.00

Highland Park Fire 15yo
The follow on from the Valhalla collection sibbling to Ice. Refill port pipes give this a light smoky citrus and spiced dram.


£220.00

Ichiros Malt
A malt made up of the products from two distilleries, and what a blast of fruit you get on this one, could be a classic sauvignon if it wasn't for the 46% buzz, very different and very enjoyable.


£75.00

Kilchoman Loch Gorm 2016
The 2016 is a more gentle version with the cask coming through more to compete with the peat and the dried fruits coming up more in the mix make this even better than usual for me.


£74.00

Kilkerran 8yo Cask strength - 2016
A great fruity (apples and pear style) start with hints of spice and ginger and although 56% not harsh.


£52.00

Kilkerran 12yo
a fruity fresh dram with hints of brine way at the back.


£40.00

Laphroaig Quarter Cask
Softer than the 10, the peat, smoke and iodine are still there but softer and easier on the palate, but this isn't one for the faint hearted - it has the south Islay power.


£45.00

Laphroaig 200th Anniversary 15yo
Limited release to celebrate 200 years of Laphroaig. Good hit of Lappy at first but then softens out on the third or forth sip. Very nice but lacks that power of the older 15.

Official notes say sweet and smoky - honey, fresh fruit, smoked ham, raisins, toffee, tobacco and classic Lagavulin smoke.


£140.00

Official notes say a sweet and typically peaty expression, with hints of almonds, brazil nuts, pears and smoked ham.


£140.00

From a fuddles memory a high percentage of rechare casks give it a higher oak flavour profile with the usual peat, less sweet, slight bitter edge but very much a big peaty punch.


£140.00

Lagavulin 8yo - 200th Anniversary
A young and fiesty Laga, flatter and dirtier than the usual 16 and loving that peaty hit.


£55.00

hints of smoked bacon and cloves on the nose, pepper and sherry influences on the palate then sea salt with an ashy finish.


£55.00

Loch Dhu
The legandary(??) black whisky from Mannachmore, too much E150 and you get a black whisky. One I dislike intensly but loved by others. Ths sticky black film it leaves is like treacle, why people buy it I don't know but we are not all the same.


£150.00

Longrow
The no age statement standard offering from Longrow. Not as peaty as the old ones but still with the brine and smoke hints. A more subtle offering that does not capture the old Longrow but does still capture your taste buds. A soft lightly peated easy drinker.


£41.00

Longrow 10yr - 1995
One of the first releases of Longrow 10 with a year of distillation and slightly heavier in the peat than the later ones and a raw edge (but in a good way) sweet smoke and salt still a great dram.


£75.00

Longrow 18, 2011 release in a purple version of the normal Longrow style box
I have to confess I had this at the Springbank Open Day and loved it but for the life of me struggle with the tasting notes for it as it was about no 14 that day but I do remember it had all the Longrow highlights but softer and more gentle. I will update this once I have bought my bottle to try but it is Longrow, it is 18yo so it is not going to be bad is it now?


£90.00

MacPhails 15 - Gordon & MacPhail
A top Speyside distilleries spirit put in G&M casks, aged in G&M warehouses and then bottled by G&M. Fruit cake and Xmas in a glass but with a small hint of smoke and very easy drinking.

A top Speyside distilleries spirit put in G&M casks, aged in G&M warehouses and then bottled by G&M this time for 30 years. This has rich oak panelled office with a hint of smoke.

Character, richness and depth.


£250.00

MacPhails 40 - Gordon & MacPhail
A top Speyside distilleries spirit put in G&M casks, aged in G&M warehouses and then bottled by G&M this time for 40 years. More oak and wood influence but not overpowering the whisky as the fuit and sherry come through followed by a whiff of smoke and the whole thing lingers on you needing a sip only occassionally to spark the joy off again.


£600.00

MacPhails 50 - Gordon & MacPhail
A top Speyside distilleries spirit put in G&M casks, aged in G&M warehouses and then bottled by G&M and in this case left for a very long time. I have now tried it and this is an absolute gem. The wood works in harmony and does not overpower even at this age, there is no harshness or burn just silky smooth spirit caressing your senses with rich warmth and bags of winter spices, dark chocolate and dried ftuits. It is in my top 10 must have whiskies and in the top 5 for those that you can still get as a general release.
In addition here are the abridged official tasting notes. Resin and pine giving way to tofee and fudge on the nose, the palate is sherry wood with charred oak hints of menthol and bitter chocolate finishing in sweet sherry with a phenolic edge (sounds lovely, I had best save up).


£1000.00

This shows how things soften with age, a great drinking peaty dram. Lost is the brutal youth of the PC6 and replaced with a fine mature example of what Bruichladdich can do and should do as they do it so well . Scored 96 in whisky bible so no slouch.


£120.00

Fantastic presentation in its own wooden casket wrapped in paper and settled in straw with a spare cork for if you open it.

Another sadly discontinued malt and an oft overlooked one that has more delicate notes than many Speyside malts and could be mistaken for a fresh Highlander, grassy meadows and pine resin on the nose with touch of marmalade in the palate giving way to the hay and sweet barley and just the little hint of bananas.


£45.00

Yamazaki 12yo
Aged Japanease malt is going to be a thing of the past very shortly and I managed to get 2 bottles of this before my supplier ran out. The price has rocketed I am sorry to say but this is a rather good dram from the land of the rising sun.
