Spring cleaning, 2019 edition

Every year there’s a period in which I get a bit itchy to downsize more or less every part of my life that’s consuming an out-of-proportion amount of time, effort and/or money.


Generally I try to supress that itch but this time I’m trying to go through my whisky collection and sell a couple of bottles that have been collecting dust. Having a family with three kids is an expensive thing to run and with the amount of money that’s been going out lately, it’s a sane thing to make sure some gets back in as well (winky face).

I’ve updated the page on which I’m trying to sell bottles, and made it public again, which means there’s a list of bottles available there.


Apart from that, I’m going through my set of open bottles and see if I can empty some by selling samples, or bottle-sharing them. Whatever you want to call it. I’ve ‘made available’ a dozen or so bottles for sharing and sampling, so if there’s something to your liking, let me know please!

‘Made available’ means: prepped myself mentally to not drink it all…


Also, I’m bottle-sharing a duo of interesting Glenmorangies. I find ‘investigating’ whisky interesting, and I would like to know which ingredient does what to a dram. Therefore, I’m bottle-sharing their Tusail and Allta.

The Tusail is a fairly regular Glenmorangie, but they changed the normally used barley for the rather old-fashioned Maris Otter barley. The Allta does the same trick, but instead of the barley a used locally found wild yeast.

10cl of both of these will set you back € 30, and for now I’m only doing these as a duo.
