Vallein Tercinier 1975-2021, 51.7% – Grapediggaz

With Wu Dram Clan and Kirsch Import getting a bit of an increasing focus on Cognac, it’s not too surprising there’s a separate brand for these bottlings. And, with Grapediggaz being that brand, they’ve chosen a rather epic name, if … 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

Ayrshire 37, 1975-2013, Bourbon Barrel 3422, 48.5% – Signatory Vintage

I tried this sample blind. And now that I’ve looked up what it is, I am very grateful for having been given the opportunity to try it by BvdP. It’s not every year you get to try Ayrshire whisky. And … Continue reading

Knockando 12, 1975-1988, 43%

If you are looking to get some old, official single malt whiskies, Knockando is one of the cheapest options out there. They did lots of vintage ‘dated’ 12 year old releases during the eighties, which dates the distillation date in … Continue reading

Bunnahabhain 1975, 36yo, 53.5% – Jack Wiebers

In one of the scavenger hunts through the remainder of my samples I found this wee baby. A couple of centiliters from 45 years ago, bottled a rather long while ago by now. These old Bunnahabhains are a light and … Continue reading

Islay, a baby and Twitter

It’s been two weeks since I’ve blogged. In those two weeks quite a lot has happened, varying from major life changing things to unimportant things that are fun to yap about. Baby On May 17th, our third child, Cato, was … Continue reading

Speyside Region, 1975-2016, 40yo, Fino Sherry Butt, 55% – The Whisky Agency (Good Vibes)

This bottle is from one of the more expensive bottle shares I did last year. Initially it was a bit painful (financially) that it didn’t sell out, but at this moment I am glad it didn’t. It’s not often anymore … Continue reading

The sixth annual Blog Birthday Bash

This here blog has been around for six years already. The actual date was August third, but that passed rather eventless. However, last Saturday was the annual barbecue-and-booze celebration. I made the fairly predictable huge hunks of pork again, although … Continue reading

Balblair 1975-2006, 30yo, 46.2% – Jack Wiebers Prenzlow Portfolio Collection

It’s not really a well known distillery in The Netherlands. As in, you can get it but that’s about it. Not many shops stock Balblair, and especially the older vintages somehow tend to be skipped. It’s a shame, since there’s … Continue reading

New bottle shares!

Little over a month ago I wrote about still available bottle shares. I’m glad to find that most of those have all gone by now. I do have some new ones available though. Not as many, but a bit more … Continue reading
