Ledaig Dùsgadh 42yo, 1972-2015, 46.7%

I generally don’t like Ledaig, as I’ve said on multiple occasions before. I also generally don’t get samples of this caliber. Luckily, I was at our 25th Anniversary party of the Usquebaugh Society last weekend, and Ronald Zwartepoorte brought the … Continue reading

Ledaig 2004-2014, 51.6% – Liquid Art (Pink Salmon label)

Right. A pink salmon, with insects for fins or so. Weird. Anyway, to get this out of the way: I don’t like Ledaig. It displays flavors that I don’t find interesting. It has a weird smokiness that is strangely clean, … Continue reading

Ledaig 7yo, 2005, 62.8% – Archives, Fishes of Samoa

First things first. I have no experience with Ledaig from the 1970s. I do have some experience with Ledaig from the last 20 years or so. I do not like those whiskies. Every time I try one I hope that … Continue reading

Ledaig 8, 61%, 2001-2010 – Daily Drams

I have always found the Daily Dram a bit of a curious name. It kind of contrasts with the ‘drink responsibly’ statement found everywhere. They do produce a number of rather good whiskies that are sort of affordable. Not that … Continue reading

Regioproeverij Noord-Holland

Eens in de zoveel tijd worden door de leden van de Usquebaugh Society regioproeverijen georganiseerd. Gezien ik in Krommenie woon en het mijn beurt was, was gisteren de Noord-Holland proeverij bij mij thuis. Om een uur of zeven begonnen de … Continue reading
