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

Arran 2000-2015, 14yo, 55.5% – OB for The Whisky Exchange

Arran is on a roll the last year or two. There have been so many private bottlings you’d almost start wondering if they’re keeping anything for themselves any longer. Almost every independent bottler or bigger shop or importer has had … 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

I got this sample from whisky buddy DSA, who sent it to me a couple of months ago. On holiday I finally got around to it and I had a quiet afternoon in the sun, with one kid taking a … Continue reading

Irish Single Malt, 14yo, 2000-2015, 51.5% – The Nectar of the Daily Drams

The older sister of the Irish whiskey I reviewed yesterday. Another undisclosed whiskey from the emerald isle, two years older than the earlier one and priced at a similar level. I believe yesterday’s bottle initially set me back 60 bucks, … Continue reading

BenRiach 2000, 54.3% – OB for Whisky Weekend Amsterdam 2014

Apart from the general crazes with similar club bottlings and private bottlings, there are always some BenRiachs popping up for festivals and such. (those crazes, by the way: around 2009 everyone bottled Bowmore, two years ago everyone bottled GlenDronach, and … Continue reading

Arran 14yo, 2000-2015, 55.7% – Private Cask for Whisky in Leiden

A rather stunning whisky shop in Leiden has been running its own festival for a couple of years. Every year, of course, accompanied by a festival bottling. I seem to remember a cracking Clynelish from a couple of years ago (split … Continue reading
