Longmorn 22, 1969-1991, 43% – Berry Bros. & Rudd

It might come as no surprise that a sample of such a Longmorn comes from one of the Longmorn brothers. I’ve had it for a while and never really felt like the time was right for drinking it. When something … 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

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
