A smaller outturn which has plenty of decent easy drinkers - just in time for spring!
One of the whiskies was a repeat (the Dailuaine), and some might lament the lack of big hitters - but I found plenty of very pleasant drams. At the rooms, everyone seemed to want bottles of the Laphroaig, but supplies were quite limited. My personal favourite was the Glenrothes - an aged whisky which exercises restraint in delivering its delights. The Glendullan was also superb.
There were also four peated drams - two heavily, two lightly. My favourite was the Coal Ila - a great micture of smoke and meat with sweetness and herbs.
A very pleasant list to write reviews for.
