Sometimes you need a break, and this holiday has been absolutely amazing so far. Sitting and having a dram of tomatinwhisky in the middle of the desert, watching the sunset was pretty perfect and yes I took my own glass... 🙂 -------------------------------------------

GLENFIDDICH GRAND CRU 23 YEAR OLD

Nose: Oak, sweet like light honey, buttered toast and certainly floral (white flowers).
Flavour: Overwhelmingly dry and waxy. Pine, oak, black pepper. Not heavy. This reminds me of autumnal brittle brown leaves on a forest floor.

Quality 80/100
Value: 7/10 (£220/70ml)
43% ABV (cuvée cask finish)

HIGHLAND PARK DRAGON LEGEND

Nose: Dark, treacle-like Pedro Ximénez sherry. Sickly sweet hints of the floral new-make spirit. Oily seafood with moss and the dampened smell of wet cinders reins the sweet nose in.
Flavour: Delightfully gentle peat, like the softness of a smoked haddock, yet still a full-flavoured dram. Powerful coastal salts. As it settles, dried raisins and prunes come through before being wrapped into a rich, lit Christmas pudding.

Quality: 83/100
Value: 9.5/10 (£30/70cl)
43.1% ABV (Sherry seasoned oak casks, no age statement)

ARDBEG CORRYVRECKAN

Nose: Cold, wet stone, as if it has been slapped by the salty sea. Oysters.
Flavour: Damp peat, peppery, warm. A fire that has just been put out by the rain. It reminds me of camping on the beach; it’s sunny and the wind is blowing salt through your hair. This is the taste of Islay for me.

Quality: 100/100
Value: 10/10 (£62/70ml)

57.1% ABV (Unknown casks)

DEVERON 18

Nose: Pepper and spice, cut through with neroli and bergamot. Oak and Patchouli also come through. This reminds me of the Acqua di Parma fragrance Colonia Intensa.
Flavour: Oak, vanilla, walnut. Very creamy. A little bit of dark fruit. Reminds me of a calm, warm evening. I’d love to try this at cask strength.

Quality: 80/100
Value: 8/10 (£64/70ml)
40% ABV (Unknown casks)

SMWS LEVIATHAN RISING 10.145 9 YEARS OLD (BUNNAHABHAIN)

Nose: Peat and sea salt with a gentle sweetness cutting through (makes my mouth water!). Extremely soft amounts of vanilla, prunes and cinnamon.
Flavour: Dry smoke. My dad was in the fire brigade and it reminds me of his fire gear; the smell of smoke, sweat and hard work. I’d say that this is drier than a traditional peated Bunnahabhain, more like a blend between Caol Ila and Lagavulin (the smoke is close to that of Lagavulin and the salt is similar to Caol Ila’s). Dark resinous cigars cut through with ash, gritty salted dirt and roasted plums. A cool, sweet finish that lives on the centre of the tongue.

Quality: 80/100
Value: 9/10 (£50/70cl)
61.7% ABV (Refill-barrel and ex-bourbon casks)

THE SINGLETON OF DUFFTOWN 12 YEAR OLD

Nose: Blackcurrant and crystallised honey. Raspberry infused dark chocolate, very much like the Green & Black’s Velvet chocolate - the similarity is uncanny.
Flavour: Oily with fresh fig. The berries are less prominent, although still soft and sweet. Reminds me of homemade bread, with hazelnut and flakes of dark chocolate mixed through. This dram is rather moreish, I’d love to try it at cask strength.

Quality: 85/100
Value: 8/10 (£35.95/70cl)
40% ABV (European and American oak casks)

SPEY TRUTINĀ

Nose: Delicate and floral. Gardenia, spring flowers, green apple, plum.
Flavour: Green with a clean sweetness, like a spring picnic under the blossom tree. Honeysuckle at the tip of the tongue. A little bit of new-make spirit is noticeable, but not unpleasant. Soft pepper (like rocket leaves) with juniper.

Quality: 82/100
Value: 9.5/10 (£39.95/70cl)
46% (bourbon casks)

TALISKER SKYE

Nose: Salty, earthly and a little sweet. Warm hay, dry grass, vanilla.
Flavour: Sweet but not sugary; malty instead. A breath of smoke. Himalayan salt and edamame peas. Oak, apricot, hay.

Quality: 77/100
Value: 9/10 (£38/70cl)
45.8% ABV (Bourbon casks)

GLENFARCLAS 17 YEAR OLD

Nose: Cinnamon and frankincense, oak and oiled leather. Caramelised banana. A little tropical on the second nosing, after tasting.
Flavour: Sweet and soft. Heather. Melts over the tongue, not oily but more like double cream. The sherry is prominent and a little fruity; imagine Pedro Ximenez drizzled over a Black Forest gateaux. A very faint, gentle wisp of smoke; like the oak would absorb from an old rocking chair that’s sat by the fire. A winner for all, especially after dinner, but would be absolutely impeccable if bottled at cask strength.

Quality: 92/100
Value: 8/10 (£64/70cl)
43% ABV (Unknown sherry casks)
