(Presumably, now they're no longer owned by LVMH, releasing whisky by firing it off-world on rockets is no longer financially viable.)
The name may be contrived, but this is the best list of the year. Whilst there are no 5/5 drams, the number of high-scorers is way up there, making this a list of must-have whiskies. The only real reason for complaint might be the lack of sherried whiskies, but I think that this selection of drams more than makes up for that. The society should aim for excellent flavour, not a balance of cask types...
I can't quite pick one favourite - but if forced, I think I'd go for the Dailuiane. It's got that young, vibrant, sweet joyfulness that I really like. The elegant and poised sweetness of the North British was a pleasure to explore, and the smoke and herbal notes of the Ledaig rounds out a winning trio for me.
The Highland Park was placed oddly into the Oily & Coastal category, when it's more olive oil than anything else - but it was still great! And into the peated whiskies, there are two lovely light options in the form of the Caol Ila and the Bowmore, then a nice big barbecue-themed Laphroaig.
Every single one of the whiskies linked to above scored 4 or higher. If that doesn't convince you that this list is a belter, I don't know what can!
