Glenburgie 27, 1995-2022, Hogshead 6668, 57.7% – Signatory Vintage for Wu Dram Clan

The last of the three bottlings for Wu Dram Clan’s third anniversary. I wonder whether they picked three because there’s three of them, or because they’re three years old. If it’s the latter, we’re in for some interesting follow up … Continue reading

Two brandies with Wu-Dram Clan involvement!

Recently the guys behind Wu-Dram Clan released an old Cognac. A Jean-Luc Pasquet, which has proven to be a rather noteworthy Cognac house that works really well for whisky fanatics. More or less at the same time they released an … Continue reading

Glen Grant 26, 1995-2021, Bourbon Barrel, 50.6% – Whisky Sponge

We all know Whisky Sponge for the fairly hilarious blog posts from a while ago. Hilarious if you are a bit embedded in the whisky world and know who and what all references refer to. It seems to have gone … Continue reading

Isle of Jura 14, 1995-2010, Refill Bourbon Barrel 3199, 57.8% – Gordon & MacPhail

Ah, the infamous Isle of Jura distillery. On the island of ‘one’. One road, one town, one way there, one hotel, one distillery, one million deer. I was there in 2018. We were on the street across from the distillery … Continue reading

Glenlivet 25, 1995-2020, American Oak Barrel 9480, 55.3% – OB for Jack Tar

‘OB for Jack Tar’ doesn’t really cover it, since it’s indeed an OB, but selected by La Maison du Whisky, under private label for Jack Tar, for the Chinese market. That doesn’t really fit the title, though. Anyway. Glenlivet is … Continue reading

Glen Elgin 23, 1995-2019, Hogshead 3241, 52.2% – Archives for Taiwan

A quick review, since it’s been a while. Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been massively busy, and the reinstatement of commuting hasn’t been without time consumption either. So, between being away for a weekend, commuting, an insanely busy … Continue reading

Clynelish 23, 1995-2019, Refill Sherry Butt 11252, 55.4% – Signatory for The Whisky Exchange

While initially it seemed like 1997 was going to be one of ‘those’ vintages for Clynelish, by now it seems to have been surpassed by 1995. Especially by Signatory bottlings, to be a little bit more precise. A while ago … 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

Imperial 18, 1995-2014, Hogshead 50292+50293, 58.3% – Signatory Vintage

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
