Springbank 21, 1995-2016, Fresh Sherry Pipe, 49% – Starkicker, Austria

Recently I got a little bit confused about this bottling, since I thought it was from 2017 instead of 2016. That led to some strange comments from me on Facebook and some confusing discussions about it afterwards. Apparently I am … Continue reading

Springbank 21, 1995-2016, Sherry cask, port pipe finish, 48% – Starkicker, Austria

I alerted a friend of mine in Austria about these bottlings that I randomly spotted on Facebook, and he was kind enough to bottle share them (Thanks again, DSA!). With a 21 year old Springbank that’s been matured in a … Continue reading

So, yet another sample sent to me from The Whisky Exchange. It’s the same as with everything in London: I should visit it sometime. Somehow, London seems elusive to me. It’s been on my wishlist for years, but it’s never … Continue reading

BTC Sample 18: Tobermory 20, 1995-2015, 54.7%, Rest & Be Thankful

BTC Sample 10: Allt-a-Bhainne 18, 1995-2014, 59.2%, Chapter 7

This time I got 40 points for being spot on with it being an 18 year old whisky. I was in doubt between Highlands and Speyside, and randomly guessed the wrong side of that arbitrary line. I’ve not tried many … Continue reading

BTC sample 6: Glen Spey, 1995-2015, 20yo, 52.7%, Cadenhead’s

Apart from the one I didn’t enter in time, this is the first zero pointer I got this year. While that boils down to the second one in six days, that’s actually quite an okay score compared to previous years. … Continue reading
