For who? The Duchess? Well, yes. It’s a fairly new Dutch brand from a shop called Best of Whiskies and/or Best of Wines. A friend and fellow club member runs the whisky division and has been making a way for … Continue reading

GlenDronach 1990-2013, 22yo, 52.1% – Silver Seal

As soon as Silver Seal is mentioned, my interest peaks. While they are an expensive bottler and by no means do I trust them blindly with two hundred hard earned euros, they do have an impressive track record. My favorite … Continue reading

GlenDronach 2003-2015, 12yo, Virgin Oak Hogshead, 54.7% – OB for The Netherlands

So, first a bit of background on the weirdness that is a Virgin Oak cask. Initially, I, and lots of others with me, figured that a virgin oak cask means that a cask hasn’t been used before. Like every cask … Continue reading

GlenDronach 1995-2015, 19yo, 54.2% – OB for Whiskybase

How is it, that without any indication a market can get fed up with a certain brand of whisky? I think that’s more or less what’s happening with mid-nineties (and younger) GlenDronach. Every year the distillery releases about two batches … Continue reading

So, I suddenly stopped blogging about the Whisky Advent Calendar from Drinks by the Dram / Master of Malt. This didn’t happen for nothing. I am also the editor-in-chief of our whisky club’s magazine, De Kiln. It’s a quarterly publication, … Continue reading

GlenDronach 1995, 19yo, PX Puncheon, 55.4% – OB for The Whisky Exchange

This GlenDronach was released a little while before TWE’s The Whisky Show together with the BenRiach I already reviewed. That BenRiach was a great dram and I saw a reviewer of this GlenDronach also being quite enthusiastic. It does seem, … Continue reading

Heelslaying, or bottle ends in March

When the year started I announced how much smaller my collection had to be by the end of the year. Then, as more people were planning such escapades there was a twitter hashtag with updates on emptied bottles. I posted … Continue reading

GlenDronach 20yo, 1994-2014, Cask #3400, 54.8% – Bottled for Abbey Whisky

Last year I tried a GlenDronach that I really regret not getting a bottle of. Strangely though, I tried again in the Blind Tasting Competition and I wasn’t fond of it. Others had the same experience but upon trying that … Continue reading

GlenDronach 10yo, 2003-2013, cask #67, 56.6% for Shinanoya

I really should learn Japanese. This Shinanoya shop in Tokyo¬†has released some awesome whiskies over the years and I just don’t have a chance of being in time for them. This cask from GlenDronach gets some ridiculously high scores on … Continue reading
