マッカラン No Ordinary 1991 16年
Cask No:5436 280 bottles 53.1% Vol
Chocolate cake, cinnamon and dried apricots on the nose,
with mint and a delicate hint of smoke.
Fresh and lively on the palate, slightly oily with drying Moroccan spice.
The smoke still penetrates on the palate but is balanced pleasantly with a touch of sweetness.
The finish is elegant, robust and smooth with the sweetness repeating as the finish lingers.
タムデュー 1991 14年
Cask No:14085 580 bottles 58.5% Vol
The aroma of hay barns in the summer and a hint of the earth come through very pleasantly.
New wood shavings and a hint of peat make for an interesting sweet nose.
There is a natural soapy aroma that creates an exciting complexity
and oily notes make this whisky almost Jekyll and Hyde like.
There is a dark toffee feel on the palate and the general feel is rich and drying.
The finish lingers and any sweetness soon disappears to leave a peaty dryness.
Very much an after dinner dram.
マクダフ 1991 15年
Cask No:1375 199 bottles 59.9% Vol
Polished beech colour. Fresh and fruity on the nose reminding me of boiled citrus sweets.
On the palate this Macduff is oily, creamy and has a pleasant syrupy sweetness.
Eventually drying out with gentle tannins.
An impressive, warming and intense dram.
ベンリネス 1992 13年
Cask No:7014 320 bottles 55%Vol
On the nose this whisky has a good deal to offer.
There are aromas reminiscent of fresh grass and suet pudding,
alongside more luxurious orange rind notes.
There is also a pleasant whiff of peat, making the whisky intriguing and complex.
A delicate smokiness with interesting cereal notes leads to a lingering spiciness
on the palate. A delicious after dinner dram.
