Glenfarclas Dark Oloroso Cask, 1980-2002, 21yo, 53%

Every couple of years something strange happens in The Netherlands. For some reason, from some warehouse, a pallet of whisky pops up that everyone had forgotten about. A couple of years ago (I think it was 2008) it was Brora … Continue reading

Bottoms Up!

Tonight a couple of friends and I are going to try and get my open-bottle-count down somewhat. Since I’ve been trying to do this on my own last year I found that a) it doesn’t work that well, and b) … Continue reading

Glenfarclas 1966-2010, 43yo, 42.9% – The Ultimate

Well, technically I can’t call this Glenfarclas, since the label states ‘Mystery Speyside’. On the other hand, when something like that is on the label everybody knows what’s going on. Usually, if you order a bottle like this, on the … Continue reading

Glenfarclas 43yo, 1966-2009, Speyside’s Finest for The Whisky Show, 48.2% – Old Malt Cask

Officially it’s an undisclosed distillery, of course, but when even the receipt says it’s a Glenfarclas, I tend to believe that. When this came out I was really into sherry casks and the darker the better, usually. When this came … Continue reading

Yesterday was the first regional tasting in Den Bosch that I attended. After my tries and lots of agendas that conflicted with those plans it finally happened. It was worth it. I added a 1966 Glenfarclas and a 25yo Ben … Continue reading

Redistilled whisky

A while ago I blogged about a comparison between Lagavulin 16, and the same whisky when you distill it again. Take away all the colour and a lot of the goodness the wood added to the whisky, but I think … Continue reading

Just as I did last year, the last week of December is spent on reviewing everything that’s happened during this solar orbit. Yesterday I listed my favorite records of 2012, and today it’s time for the top whiskies. Again, like … Continue reading

BTC: Sample 8 (Longmorn 16, 60%)

A nice sherry cask coming up again! Quite recognizable by the color in this case, which of course influences what you’re tasting. Hoping to get more points this time than a few other times (again) to get at least a … Continue reading
