Mortlach 1997 Port Finish (Malts of Scotland)
I'm a huge fan of port matured or finished drams, i really enjoy the jam like qualities that they have and prefer the sweetness from them to the mostly spicy, nuty oloroso casks that many others prefer.

Glen Grant 1949 Speyside Collection (Gordon and MacPhail)
When Gordon and MacPhail recently announced the Speyside Collection I was in awe of the array of stunning old drams that were included in the list, when samples arrived I was even more enthralled.

Glendronach 1985 cask 1037 PX Sherry Puncheon
This 1985 vintage matured in PX is a bit of an odd-ball as i was expecting it to be far sweeter than it was, with notes of spices, and lindt chocolate with chilli being at the front and some gentle sweetness hiding in the background.

Glendronach 2002 PX Sherry Puncheon Cask 1504
I've been lucky enough to try a lot of good whiskies, some great whiskies and a handful of amazing whiskies over the years and even i was excited by the range of single casks in Glendronachs batch 14 releases.

Glendronach 1996 PX Sherry Puncheon Cask 1485
This 1996 single cask which was matured in a PX Sherry Puncheon hits all the right notes for me, frirst up no rubber, but it does pruens, sweetness and edges of that bitter dark chocolate that i love.

Jura 30 year old (Wm Cadenhead)
It's no secret i'm a bit of a fanboy of Jura whiskies, so when i heard about this dram I ran to my local Cadenheads shop and put my name straight on the list ... in 7th place.
