Family Silver 1972-2017, 44yo, 41% – Cooper’s Choice

When this one popped up last year, I instantly bought it. A bit of an impulse buy that I try to stay away from, but in this case it all turned out well. Especially after tasting it. The blend is … Continue reading

Tomintoul 40, 1972-2012, 48.5% – Maltbarn

Tomintoul is one of those distilleries that’s been around forever, but has only a very limited number of releases. Somehow, I have not even tried those. Also, from independent bottlers I’ve not tried many, and I don’t think there are … Continue reading

Invergordon 1972-2016, 43yo, 49.8% – WhiskyNerds

Apparently a sizable batch of Invergordon casks has been released from the warehouses of Martin Armstrong. A while ago he released a few on his own WhiskyBroker label, and one was bottled for Whiskybase, for their database containing 70,000 whiskies. … Continue reading

Clynelish 32, 1972-2005, 53.5% – Glen Master

Glen Master must be the most corny name  for a bottler they could come up with. I can imagine thinking of something like that after an evening of heavy dramming and considering it a great idea. I can also think of … Continue reading

Tobermory 1972-2005, 32 years old, Oloroso sherry cask finish, 49.5%

Somehow, it seems to be a legendary year for many a distillery. 1972. GlenDronach, Caperdonich, but also Ledaig and Tobermory. Ledaig 1972 is one of the ‘argument’ whiskies people mention when I state I generally don’t like Ledaig. I’ve never … Continue reading
