Fettercairn 18, 1990-2009, Oloroso Quartercask 2902, 50%

I haven’t reviewed many Fettercairn on this blog, and it’s fair to say I haven’t tried many more either. It’s one of those distilleries that used to have a bit of a shitty reputation with their whisky being too funky, … Continue reading

Balblair 18, 1990-2008, Hogshead 160, 58.7% – Riegger’s Selection

Normally I would start a post like this with something like “I quite like Balblair”, but I’m not sure if that is a relevant statement anymore. I visited the distillery in 2013, and loved it. I also really like their … Continue reading

Old Rhosdhu 29, 1990-2020, Refill Hogshead 416, 48.2% – WhiskyNerds

About two weeks ago the newest WhiskyNerds release came out. This time they opted for an Old Rhosdhu from 1990. Old Rhosdhu is one of the older brands of Loch Lomond Distillery. So, in a way this is not a … Continue reading

Getting reacquainted with Bladnoch.

Bladnoch is a troubled whisky, from a troubled distillery. If memory serves it was bound for demolishment when it was sold by Diageo to Raymond Armstrong, who then tried to revive it but had to go through lots of legal … Continue reading

Old Pulteney 1990-2015, 53.7% – Cadenhead

I’m looking north again, in regards to whisky. Not necessarily to Scotland, which is entirely north of The Netherlands, but mostly to Orkney, Sutherland, Caithness and the Highland Council regions of Scotland. Distilleries like Balblair, Old Pulteney and Highland Park … Continue reading

Enmore 1990, 28yo, 54.9% – The Duchess

I feel like a bit of a douche for not reviewing this rum earlier, since I’ve had the sample sitting on my shelf for months. Unfortunately, I put another bottle in front of it, and with me having to switch … Continue reading

Ben Nevis 27, 1990-2018, 58.9% – Le Gus’t

Be warned, this is going to be one of those contrary reviews that I’ve been doing lately. When I did the Ben Nevis bottle-share, almost 18 months ago, I also picked up this port pipe ‘finished’ 27 year old with … Continue reading

Macallan 1990-2003, 12yo, 57.6% – Signatory Vintage

Yet another random sample I grabbed from my shelf before I went on holiday last week. On the label there was only the vintage and the ABV, so at least I knew I didn’t want to start with this one. … Continue reading

Caol Ila 1990, 28yo, 48% – The Whisky Nerds

I always get a little excited when a new Whisky Nerds bottling is announced. So far, all they’ve bottled is about the best you can spend you booze-allocated-money on. The Lagavulin was a bit of an exception, since it was … Continue reading

Old Pulteney 10, 1990-2001, 57.8% – Hart Brothers

Halfway through January I went to De Whiskykoning’s Bottoms Up tasting. He put out all open bottles that got too low to use in a tasting and we were allowed to randomly pick a number of drams for tasting. I … Continue reading
