The 90 Club


It is not often I find something truly outstanding.

The whisky world is brimming with bottles like never before. But it takes a lot of skill and luck to find the right spirit and put it into the perfect cask for the perfect length of time and then for a person who really enjoys that type of whisky to discover it. 
Everyone is different. Just because I really liked these whiskies does NOT mean that you will. However, I thought it would be useful to make a list of my highest rated whiskies:


  • Mortlach 1973 OMC (2004)- 93/100
  • Brora 30 (2004 Release)- 93/100

There are 21 whiskies in the 90 Club. Some number crunching here has revealed that the current average age of a whisky in the 90 Club is 29 years old. The average price (approx.) is £815 for a 70cl bottle. The average strength is 51.4%abv with 46% of the whiskies being matured in Sherry casks, 26% from Hogsheads, 18% from a vatting of Sherry and Bourbon, 5% from Bourbon Barrels and 5% from Rum barrels.


Hopefully this list will expand as we go on and I taste more and more whiskies.


I am also going to add the 'Almost There Club' with whiskies that have scored 89/100:


  • Caol Ila 1983 Artist 4th Ed.- 89/100
  • Ardbeg 1976-2002 VC Sample- 89/100
  • Ardbeg 1976-2004 Feis Ile- 89/100
  • Springbank 21 Single Cask TWE Show 2016- 89/100
  • Port Ellen 1978 Rare Malts- 89/100
  • Craigellachie 21 Single Cask for The Craigellachie Hotel- 89/100
  • Ledaig 1973 Cheiftain's Hogshead- 89/100
  • Ledaig 20 Distillery Exclusive Moscatel Finish- 89/100
  • Bowmore 1991 Carn Mor 'Chairman's Legacy'- 89/100
  • Bowmore 1987 SMWS 3.228- 89/100
  • Lagavulin 23 Refill Sherry Warehouse- 89/100
