05/06/2013 Blitz at Berrys' #2

Time to go say hello to good friends across the park. Cannot believe my last visit was two months ago.
No fancy comment or tasting note for any of the bottlings; rather a quick update for reference.

Glencadam 20yo 1991/2012 (53.9%, BBr Selected by Berrys', C#4762): a fresh Glencadam, not bad at all. Apples and pears, which one should not comm-pear. 7/10

Braes Of Glenlivet 18 1994/2012 (46%, BBr Selected by Berrys', C#159165): my favourite of the day, though nothing to rave about. Mostly cooked apples. The recent Càrn Mòr was much more to my taste. 7/10

Longmorn 20yo 1992/2012 (58.6%, BBr Selected by Berrys', C#71775): the sherry influence is not very well integrated. Not for me. Cough syrup, dark chocolate. 5/10

Bunnahabhain 23yo 1989/2013 (44%, BBr Selected by Berrys', C#5700): very nice, lightly smokey and rather zesty. 7/10

Bunnahabhain 24yo 1988/2013 (49.8%, BBr Selected by Berrys', C#4111): molasses, sherried in a dirty way. Not my thing at all, today. Water turns it into coffee. 3/10

With the glorious sunshine (sharing a thought for the flooded regions of Central and Eastern Europe, here), heavily-sherried whisky did not really have any appeal whatsoever. Still, three satisfactory drams out of five is not so bad.
