Clynelish 15, 1992-2008, Bourbon Hogshead, 56.4% – Cadenhead Authentic Collection

To say that Clynelish can do no wrong in my book is a bit of a stretch, but I am a bit of a fan of the distillery’s output. In my book that makes the balance swing both ways. When … 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

Longmorn 17, 1992-2010, 1st Fill Bourbon Cask 48431, 53.6% – Adelphi

With a friend of mine being one of the Longmorn Brothers, it’s no surprise that I occasionally find a sample of the distillery’s whisky on my shelf. And for some reason, Longmorn generally comes from samples. I can’t remember if … Continue reading

Blended Malt Scotch Whisky 27, 1992-2020, Refill Sherry Butt, 42% – The Maltman

I don’t really try whiskies from the Maltman that often. It’s one of those bottlers that I know exists and releases rather high-scoring drams, most of the time. But when push comes to shove I often have to make a … Continue reading

Ardmore 19, 1992-2011, Bourbon cask 9464, 49.3% – Single Malts of Scotland

Yup, another Ardmore. I love it. The fact that it’s a peated whisky that tastes different than the most famous peated whiskies from Islay, and that they don’t push the peat to the brink of the ashtray sits very well … Continue reading

Rosebank 21, 1992-2014, 55.3%

Rosebank… One of the first closed distilleries I tried, and one I didn’t buy enough of in the past. It’s become such a rarity now, even more so because the quality is quite patchy. Official bottlings and most things released … Continue reading

Glen Scotia 26, 1992-2018, Bourbon Hogshead, 47.3% – Cadenhead

I went into this dram with great expectations. It’s Glen Scotia, which I love. It’s also Cadenhead, which I also love. Of course, both have their ups and downs. Since it’s been quite a while since I got this sample, … Continue reading

Whiskykoning’s “Spring Tasting”

Glen Moray 1992-2018, 25yo, Bourbon Hogshead, 52.5% – Cadenhead

I generally quite like Glen Moray. Especially from independent bottlers, because the official bottlings tend to be rather too soft and gentle, almost a bit flat. Of course, they bottle all kinds of randomness at the distillery through the Distillery … Continue reading

Glen Scotia 20, 1992-2012, Hogshead 08/71, 50.4% – Archives

If I’m not mistaken this was in the first batch of whiskies ever released by Archives, which has since become a more-or-less household name for whisky fanatics in The Netherlands, and abroad. I got my hands on a bottle recently, … Continue reading
