New bottle shares!

Little over a month ago I wrote about still available bottle shares. I’m glad to find that most of those have all gone by now. I do have some new ones available though. Not as many, but a bit more ‘luxurious’ than before.

I’ve been trying to go in the direction of quality over quantity for years, and while quality has gone up, quantity has not come down yet. That’s something I need to work on over the coming, well, lifetime.

So, if you’re in to older whisky, read on. There’s three of them available.

Tamnavulin 1967-2010, 43yo, 41%, The Whisky Agency

Not much to say apart from the fact that I can’t ever remember having a Tamnavulin. I know there was at least one, but I wanted to see what this one was about.

20 cl is available

10 cl costs € 40, 5 cl costs € 21.50

Glenesk 1984-2016, 31yo, 49.5%, Cooper’s Choice for Limburg Whisky Fair

I do remember having a Glenesk before, or a Hillside. That’s the same distillery. I had the Rare Malt 25 year old at Whisky by the Sea in Vlissingen, years ago. It was great. I’ve always wanted to try more but they got very expensive. This one too, but since it’s more or less a now or never thingy…

45 cl is available

10 cl costs € 47.50, 5 cl costs € 25

Undisclosed Speyside, 1975-2016, 40yo, 55%, The Whisky Agency

I saw this getting 92 points at WhiskyNotes. I know I love fino sherry casks in whisky but you don’t see them all too often. I took my chance with this one.

45 cl is available

10 cl costs € 47.50, 5 cl costs € 25

 

Of course, everything can be combined with other samples from my sample page, and let me know if you want to participate! I know I’m looking forward to trying these drams!

After this, I promise I stop buying stuff and do some bottle shares from my own collection. There’s enough there that I want to try! Also, soon our club’s new Tomatin bottling will be available. I’ll be sharing that too, obviously.
