Glen Scotia 17, 1977-1994, 57.5% – Cadenhead Authentic Collection

Unless things go horribly awry, I’ll be in Campbeltown in 9 days. Contrary to what you might expect we’re not visiting any distilleries, since time is ridiculously limited and we’re already visiting Watt Whisky. Of course, we’re visiting some shops … 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

Glenlivet 26, 1977, 52.9% – Kingsbury

It’s not often you come across a bottle of anything from Kingsbury. It being a bottler from Japan, and such. And it becomes even more rare when it’s such an old Glenlivet. This 26 year old whisky must, logically, have … Continue reading

Port Ellen 19, 1977-1996, 58.9% – Scott’s Selection

Sometimes you realize you have some rather interesting tasting notes lying around. Stuff you tried but for some reason haven’t written about yet. By ‘you’ I mean me, because I realize most people do not write whisky blogs, although it … Continue reading

Ardmore 24, 1977-2004, Sherry Butt, 58.6% – Cadenhead

Generally I love Cadenhead. And also, I tend to love Ardmore. So when MvZ was pruning his collection and I could buy this bottle from him, quite a bit below current retail value, I jumped on it. Of course, it … Continue reading

Glen Morey 1977-2012, Bourbon Hogshead MoS 12021, 52.1% – Malts of Scotland

Yes, Glen Morey. At least, that’s according to the label. Malts of Scotland is famous for two things in my book: great whisky and typos on labels. “Images of Bartstown”, anyone? Anyway, this 1977 Glen Moray was bottled almost a … Continue reading

Caperdonich 39, 1977-2017, 50.4% – Cadenhead’s 175th Anniversary

Well, there’s no mistaking this being from a sherry cask. It’s a butt too, so a more proper sherry cask as well. No information about the kind of oak is given though. Last year Cadenhead’s, the rather awesome bottler of … Continue reading

Whiskies of the year: Runners up

I published the post with my whisky of the year last Monday. Generally I do the runners up first, or all in one post or so, but in this case it was a brand new whisky that I had not … Continue reading

Glenlochy 1977-1996, 18yo, 60.5% – Cadenhead’s

On Whiskybase there’s a remark for this whisky that it was sold in auction in 2015. Don’t I know it! I finally managed to get my hands on an old Glenlochy! It’s one from Cadenhead’s from two decades ago, so … Continue reading

The annual ‘Islay’ Tasting at De Whiskykoning – part 2

Yesterday I wrote about the first three drams we had at De Whiskykoning in November. Today I write about the rest of the evening. I might have to admit that were a tad rowdy during the tasting and Rob, the … Continue reading
