  • - Royal Reserve

    By JasonHambrey on 23rd Jul 20142014-07-23T21:26:00

    73

    A budget Canadian whisky for the mixing market - on the nose there's some pine, brown sugar, and spicy pepper. The palate is lightly sweet with a peppery and nutty character, with a tannic, fruity rye … read more

  • An Cnoc 16 Year old - Zesty

    By Uisgebetha on 23rd Jul 20142014-07-23T07:46:00

    92

    Very well melded flavours and aromas, exquisite malt in this bourbon cask style. Packs more of a punch than its younger (12 year old) brother largely due to the percentage I fear than the bourbon casks… read more

    A very pleasant light floral speyside malt. Quality whisky of this type and scores highly, but not something to get too excited about. Nose: White wine, golden syrup, honey and vanilla Taste: Quite full… read more

  • Glenfarclas '105' - Sherry Behemoth

    By BourbonNorth1 on 23rd Jul 20142014-07-23T07:30:00

    90

    Glenfarclas is a fantastic distillery in my books. Still family-owned, it churns out whisky of dependable, excellent quality, and their '105' bottling is no exception. Running a whopping 60% alcohol and… read more

  • Glenfiddich 15 Year old - Interesting idea

    By BourbonNorth1 on 23rd Jul 20142014-07-23T07:11:00

    83

    Glenfiddich is one of the most, if not THE most, popular single malts around in terms of pure sales. Whether it deserves this level of popularity or not isn't something I'm going to argue over here, and… read more

    By talexander on 23rd Jul 20142014-07-23T00:02:00

    86

    The Birnie Moss is very important in terms of the history of BenRiach because it is the first to be wholly distilled and produced under the stewardship of the new owners (who took over in 2004) and Master… read more

    By talexander on 22nd Jul 20142014-07-22T23:40:00

    85

    The colour is a deep copper. On the nose, an excellent intertwining of peat and port - no surprise but it is nice! Pencil shavings, herbal (mint and sage), lots of sea salt. Wet smoke at the campfire. … read more

    Drinking whiskey is not only about nosing and tasting. Some brands have very curious or even mysterious background stories. Last week I ran into one of those strange fellows, a bottle of four-year-old … read more

    By JasonHambrey on 22nd Jul 20142014-07-22T22:20:00

    82

    A ten year old whisky, with a pretty heavy rye mash. It used to be fully rye, but now other grains are also used. It is another product out of Alberta distillery. The nose is very interesting and unique… read more
