BTC #10, #11 and #12

Time to catch up! Due to heavy drinking on Friday night and a sleep in on Sunday, I didn’t get around to blogging about the last couple of Blind Tasting Competition Days. Yesterday, day 12, was the first one I … Continue reading

Balblair 2000-2014, 51%, OB for the Russian Federation

Now this is a first! I’ve never had a bottling for Russia before. Of course, that doesn’t change the whisky much, but it’s just a fun fact. Anyway, this heavily sherried Balblair single cask was released two years ago and … Continue reading

Springbank 2000-2015, 15yo, Port Cask, 50.9% – OB for Awico

I generally like Springbank, both for their whisky and the way they’re doing business. Most of their stuff has an age statement, most of their whiskies are at least sort of affordable. They also do quite a few private casks. … Continue reading

Old Pulteney 2000-2014, 14yo, 61.1%, Hand bottled at the Distillery

Somehow I don’t try many Old Pulteneys. That’s more strange since I generally really enjoy the taste and aroma it brings, with gentle briny notes covered in fruit and vanilla. Deducing from that you might say I prefer the bourbon … Continue reading

Glenturret 2000-2014, 50% – Gordon & MacPhail Exclusive

I don’t get to try too many of the Gordon & MacPhail Exclusives. It might actually have been a couple of years during on the Blog Birthday Bashes that someone brought a bottle of Scapa from the brand. I might … Continue reading
