Reviews

See below for reviews from our monthly Scotches, plus private stock (whisky not bought with club funds). All tasting notes are entirely by us. No cribbing from Michael Jackson or Jim Murray, in other words. If there is a whisky listed but no link, it means there is a review forthcoming. Read and enjoy. Here’s this list in another format.
