A rediscovered love for Islay’s whiskies

BTC sample 13, Lagavulin 12, 2016 edition, 57.7%

Right. I have no clue what’s happening here. Apart from the fact that I didn’t enter my guess for Saturday, simply because I forgot and got home late. So that was a zero pointer. I haven’t blogged about Friday’s sample … Continue reading

Lagavulin 10, 2005-2015, 58.3% – Gleann Mór (A Rare Find)

Lagavulin is, like Talisker and Oban, not a distillery you see a lot of in the independent whisky scene. At least, it’s there, but the name of the distillery generally isn’t on the label. This one is different since it … Continue reading

Lagavulin 1991-2015, Triple matured, Feis Ile 2015, 59.9%

During that one week in May when a lot of folks make their pilgrimage to Islay I’d rather not be on Facebook. Or Twitter for that matter. Not that I’m jealous of everyone being at their favorite distillery and drinking … Continue reading

Back in 2008 this whisky was released. Apparently the release was kind of a mess, since the price at which is became available was completely wrong initially. As in, while the RRP was set to some € 80, the first … Continue reading
