On new whisky, and Chateau du Breuil

Chateau du Breuil is a rather well known distiller of Calvados. They’re known for their iconic bottles, but also for adding some pear to the apple brandy. A few years ago they made their foray into distilling whisky. I completely … Continue reading

Paul John 5yo, Summer 2017, 57.4% – Cadenhead

Paul John (not Ringo George) is one of those weird distilleries that somehow don’t really resonate with me. Which is increasingly rare since I think about what I tried from them. None of the whiskies have been bad, most have … Continue reading

Milk & Honey 1yo Pomegranate Wine Cask, 55%

Sooooo. Pomegranate wine… Until SJ gave me the rest of his sample of this, I didn’t even know that was a thing. Of course that also made me unaware of it’s casks being used to finish whisky spirit in. Of … Continue reading

Kavalan Solist 2010-2016, B101217032A, 58.6%

Ah, who doesn’t remember B101217032A? It’s one of those iconic cask numbers that makes most whisky lovers drool. But no, it doesn’t really resonate, these eleven characters which most likely only mean something to the distillery’s barcode scanner. It also … Continue reading

Bad-ass Whisky Night #2 at De Whiskykoning

Last year I thought it was a good idea to organize a whisky tasting at Whiskyslijterij De Koning in Den Bosch. We already held an annual ‘winter whisky tasting’ there in November, with a line-up of six peated whiskies, focusing … Continue reading

Zuidam Millstone 2009, 7yo, Rye, 52.7% – OB for The Whisky Exchange

The Whisky Exchange have a knack for finding some good casks in distilleries that aren’t that common to find in shops like The Whisky Exchange. They seem to have a preference for Zuidam’s Millstone too, since this is already the … Continue reading

Waldviertler Pure Rye Malt, 41%

I think I have begun most of my recent post with ‘So, …’, which means I have to diversify. Also in terms of what I’m reviewing, and in this case it’s an Austrian rye malt of undisclosed age. It’s probably … Continue reading

Paul John 6yo, Batch 2, 54.7% – That Boutique-y Whisky Company

Starting a blog post by telling a certain brand is not on my radar is nothing new. Actually, it’s starting to become a bit tedious. As it turns out, a lot of brands and/or distilleries are not on my radar. … Continue reading

English Whisky Co. 5 year old, Batch 1, 49.5% – That Boutique-y Whisky Company

This just might be the first English Whisky Co. Whisky with an age statement that I’ve tried. I have to admit that I’ve not tried all that many. Some chapters at Bottoms Up tastings here and there, and some indie … Continue reading

Kavalan 8yo, 2006-2015, Peaty Cask, 53.2% – OB for WhiskyNerds

A little while ago, I guess just in early December, Bram and Floris (the WhiskyNerds) announced their second cask. They did a GlenDronach earlier in the year which I (shamefully) have not reviewed yet. I have been enjoying it since … Continue reading
