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

It’s been a while since I tried Imperial. Almost two years since the last review, but in the last seven years I’ve only had three. They are getting more rare with every release, since the distillery shut its doors 26 … Continue reading

Clynelish 23, 1995-2019, Refill Sherry Butt 11242, 56.4% – Signatory

At our last visit to the Hielander Whisky Festival, my father-in-law found another Clynelish he loved. He already has a weak spot for the distillery, and finding an exceptional one is always a treat. Of course, you don’t spend € … Continue reading

Ledaig 25, 1995-2021, Hogshead 143, 50.6% – Wu Dram Clan

The flywheel that is the Wu Dram Clan seems to only be gaining speed, or frequency, of their releases. Hot on the heels of the insanely good Ardbeg and Jamaican rum comes this Ledaig 25. The spiritual follow-up to last … Continue reading

GlenAllachie 24, 1995-2020, Hogshead 23, 55.1% – The Duchess

Earlier this week I got a sample in the mail of a to-be-released GlenAllachie, and today is the day that it’s available from various shops. Let’s start by expressing a bit of gratitude towards Nils of Best of Wines/Best of … Continue reading

Ledaig 1995-2020, 24yo, 46.4% – WhiskyNerds

It seems that a lot of bottlers are getting their hands on casks of Ledaig lately. And contrary to what was happening almost a decade ago, these casks aren’t shit. There were great ones by The Whisky Kingdom/Duckhammers and The … Continue reading

Ledaig 25, 1995-2020, 48.5% – The Whisky Agency

It’s been a while since I had anything from The Whisky Agency, but recently I got the opportunity to buy some bottles and I did. I bought the 25 year old Ledaig, and a 23 year old Ben Nevis. The … Continue reading

Benrinnes 1995-2019, 51.1% – Cadenhead

During 2018 and 2019 Cadenhead released quite a few of Benrinnes from the first half of the nineties. Some where in their small batch series, like this one, but there were some single casks too, as well as some bottlings … Continue reading

Bowmore 1995-2012, 16yo, 54.4% – Adelphi

If there are any regulars and they’ve read some earlier posts on Bowmores from the mid-nineties, they probably know I really love these vintages. 1993 is always the much laureled vintage, but I generally prefer 1995 and 1996 for a … Continue reading

The Tony Koehl Series is a short series (four bottlings, if I’m not mistaken) by David Stirk, when he still owned The Creative Whisky Company. He doesn’t anymore since last year. I don’t know what happened with it, but when … Continue reading
