Glenrothes 22, 1996-2018, Bourbon Hogshead, 50.5% – Cadenhead’s Whisky Market Cologne

My whisky buddy RvB sometimes tours with his band, and when he does, he visits Cadenhead shops across Europe. Generally, that results in a bottle-share or two. This bottle is one of such shares, if I remember correctly. And, with … Continue reading

Glenrothes 20, 1997-2017, Sherry Butt, 50.1% – Whisky-Fässle

Around 2017 a massive parcel of Glenrothes 1997 was released to brokers, or many bottlers only responded to things being available around that time. On this blog I reviewed three of them, but there were many more. A bit of … Continue reading

Glenrothes 1980-2007, 56.7% – Scott’s Selection

The always interesting, but also weird Glenrothes. Why weird? Because in general they make awesome whisky, but they tend to not bottle it themselves. The official bottlings are rather generic, most of the times, while the independent bottlers tend to … Continue reading

Glenrothes 19, 1997-2017, 58.8% – Whiskybase

On of these 10,000*n bottles of Whiskybase. One I’ve had on my shelf for a while and never really got into, or got around to reviewing. In the end I sold some samples and it still took me three years … Continue reading

Glenrothes 1997-2016, 53.5% – WhiskyBroker (for Van Zuylen)

The Van Zuylen bit is between brackets in the title since this whisky came out as a shop bottling for Van Zuylen AND a regular bottling from WhiskyBroker. It seems they split the cask since it’s the same cask number … Continue reading

Glenrothes 1997-2017, 19yo, 58.5% – The Single Cask

This bottler suddenly showed up on my radar when I was randomly browsing Master of Malt. Like I needed to find something to spend money on… Anyway, I tried doing a bottle-share with it, but that didn’t get any traction. … Continue reading

The samples

So, I tallied the samples I’ve got lying and I got to 110 samples of whisky. That’s specific because there’s eight more samples of new make and thirty samples of assorted booze. I already finished three of them over the … Continue reading

The Winter Queen, 9yo, 52.7% – Fusion Whisky

The blending of whiskies from different countries is nothing new. Ages ago this was done with American and Irish whiskeys, and in more recent years Bruichladdich mixed their product with some Irish whiskey as well. Now, under the flag of … Continue reading

Two new releases from The Duchess

Since Best of Wines in Bussum, The Netherlands, has been bottling whisky, they’ve not released a lot. As far as I know there have been only three bottlings prior to these. Three are in their Shieldmaidens range, and one was … Continue reading
