view of our purchasing panel.

Enjoy tonight. There is no benefit to cellaring.

2

DRINK OR HOLD:

Can be enjoyed now, but may be

matured further by cellaring, depending on individual

preference.

3

HOLD:

Ideal for further cellaring. This wine may well be

enjoyed now by some, but we feel that it will develop

favourably under ideal cellaring conditions.

TASTING NOTE: One can only imagine that a bottle

of Koval, with an eye-opening proof of 94, makes

winters in the Midwest –where its grains are sourced

– considerably more bearable. The surprise here

is the pleasant whiff of bananas. We recommend

downing this with great deliberation, even as it will be

instinctive to do otherwise. (Elon Green,

ISLAY SINGLE MALT

Natural colour, unchillfiltered

(Burn Stewart)

TASTING NOTE: Light amber yellow colour. Very

attractive, slightly spicy, complex, intense, faintly nutty,

ripe plum-caramel nose. Dry, medium bodied, quite

well structured, harmonious, bright, faintly honeyed,

intense, rounded, caramel-ripe-plum flavours

with a lingering, very gently smoky finish. Has 46.3%

alcohol. A Best Buy. Score:

94

KILKERRAN 12-YEAR-OLD

CAMPBELTOWN SINGLE MALT

TASTING NOTE: ... honey notes with persistent

floral aromas followed by hints of butterscotch, dry

heather and some cereal/short bread elements.

There is also just a hint of brine, like a warm summer

sea breeze ... creamy texture and a more substantial

mouth feel than its appearance would suggest. There

is pepper, but with a bit of sweetness, as in a sweet

chili spread or a pepper infused marmalade, followed

by slight citric notes and elements of cinnamon spice

and vanilla. There are also hints of smoke and light

medicinal notes. The finish is long, with a distinctive

dry pepper capsaicin quality set against a slightly

sweetish background note. The combination of vanilla

notes and dry pepper give the whisky a bit of an

old fashioned gingersnap character. Score:

90
