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

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

Laphroaig 20, 1995-2015, 58.4% – SMWS (Essence of Islay)

Yet another completely random sample that I most likely got from a Bottle Share. As you can see by the year of bottling in the title, this has been collecting dust for about four years, with me completely forgetting about … Continue reading

Springbank 23, 1995-2018, 48% – WhiskyNerds

It’s not been two weeks since I did the previous review of a WhiskyNerds bottling. That Lagavulin 21 was amazing, and hot on the heels of that one comes a fresh sherry matured, 23 year old Springbank. Their Lagavulin scoreed … Continue reading

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
