Isle of Jura 10 Year Old

Weird, but sort of endearing Isle of Jura 10 Year Old

Berfore this, the last time I bought a bottle of Jura 10, I got it for under £10, although it was on offer half price at that time (around 2004?). I remember half-regretting spending that £9.50 then, as…

Talisker Storm

brine, brine, brine, and peat Talisker Storm

If you really like your whiskies salty, which I quite like, then this will be right up your alley. It even out-brines Old Pulteney 12, which I also love for it's salty/barley mix. This is a salty/peaty…

Knockando 18 year old distilled 1994

Now I just Knockando Knockando 18 year old distilled 1994

Penderyn Madeira Finish

Too sweet, then too sour Penderyn Madeira Finish

Aberlour A'bunadh

batch 45 Aberlour A'bunadh

BOOM! For me, this is a whisky that makes you smile and say 'ah, this is how whisky should be'. Not subtle, but full of flavour and warmth, and lovely to drink with only a reasonably little splash of…

Old Pulteney 12 Year Old

barley-rich little gem Old Pulteney 12 Year Old

One of the best 10/12 year old highland whiskies in my opinion. Really distinctive flavour profile with lots of barley and salt. Potent, but lovely nose and very moorish. Cracking stuff for the price as…
