Glenmorangie 15, 2005-2020, 58.1% – SMWS 125.77 (Graceful Elegance)

I’m not entirely sure how gracefully elegant a 58.1% whisky will be, especially not as a first dram, but let’s give it a go. It’s been a while since I had an SMWS bottling, and I didn’t doubt long to … Continue reading

Glenmorangie Tùsail, 46%

When this was released I tried to bottle-share it, but I believe no one was interested. Why care about Glenmorangie, right? However, the entire concept of this bottling, with the maris-otter barley instead of regular far-more-yielding barley was something that … Continue reading

Glenmorangie 19, Finest Reserve, 43%

I somehow don’t review too many Glenmorangies, while I do really like the distillery’s output. This not reviewing many is mostly because their core range is very stable and they don’t do too many special releases. Also, a lot of … Continue reading

For the seventh time Glenmorangie releases their annual Private Edition series. So far there have been hits and misses, and for me some unknown. The biggest success in the range was the Ealanta, I think. The Virgin Oak matured whisky was … Continue reading

Glenmorangie Ealanta, 46%, 19 year old Virgin Oak, Private Release

Every time Glenmorangie release a new Private Release the internet buzzes with reviews of it, and generally the bottling sells out really quickly. So far the only ones that didn’t sell out fast were the Sonnalta and the Finealta. And … Continue reading

Hielander Whisky Festival 2015

I realized a while ago that this 5th edition of the Hielander Whisky Festival is also the fifth time I’m there. So so far I didn’t miss a single one. I think this is something to keep up. This year, … Continue reading

Glenmorangie 1974-1999, for duty free, 43%

Another one of the samples that I got from Stefan van der Boog, together with the Macallan one. Of course you have to buy more than one thing, since postage has to be made the most of. I don’t have … Continue reading

My favourite events of 2013

Looking back at the almost gone year I remember quite a lot of whisky events. Not as many as some years ago when I visited so many festivals I couldn’t even remember them all, but the quality of each individual … Continue reading
