A Chorlton Whisky that is over 30 year old? Here we go the Glentauchers 31 Year Old 1989, the oldest bottling in the collection. Matured in a bourbon barrel, but with a nice color and complex fruitiness: loads of pineapple, beeswax, tangerines and juice gummy, and later it comes a bit of mintiness. Still waxy and fruity on the palate like apple, lemon juice gummy, and a bit of warmness like ginger and pepper. And of course, a long finish with fruits.

And the younger and peated one, Ledaig 12 Year Old, a usual guest in Chorlton’s selection, but it seems to be the best Ledaig! On the nose, classic peat smoke with salted almonds, seaside chips and oily old machinery, some fruity notes come later like apple and lemon. Sweet, salty, smoky and medicinal one the palate, still classic, developing into lemon, soy sauce and seafoods! Finish with tar, pleasant sweetness and soy sauce.
