Glendronach 12, 1963, 43%

Generally, what happens with samples that I have been saving for an at least somewhat special occassion, I forget who said samples came from. Normally, that’s a bit shameful but not too much of a deal. However, when the sample … Continue reading

The best of 2021

Apart from looking back, using hindsight to evaluate what happened on a more generic level, there was of course a lot of booze last year. In The Netherlands bottle-shops are in the same legal category as supermarkets and other foodstuff … Continue reading

GlenDronach 1993-2012, Sherry Butt 1616, 59.2% – Hand-filled at the distillery

Unfortunately, this wasn’t hand-filled by me, but by whisky buddy SJ. He opened a bottle recently and was kind enough to give me a sample of it. I didn’t wait too long before tasting it, because it looked so gorgeous. … Continue reading

GlenDronach 2003-2016, 13yo, 53.9% – OB for The Duchess

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

Whisky Advent Calendar, days 13 to 19…

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
