Heaven Hill 2001-2015, Sherry Hogshead, 48.9% – Malts of Scotland

Apart from the fact that this is neither a malt, nor from Scotland, it’s still a pretty interesting twist on things. A pretty well matured Bourbon (at least 13 years old, but matured in a sherry hogshead! That is something … Continue reading

Glen Scotia 15yo, 2001, Mashman’s Reserve, 58.2% – Distillery Only

As with most Distillery Only bottlings, you actually have to go to the distillery to pick it up. Which is yet another good reason to visit such a little piece of heaven on earth. I picked this one up at … Continue reading

It’s not very often that I go through my own bottles at a rapid pace. But somehow, with sherry casks from the Springbank Society that never seems to be a huge problem. In this case it only took a while … Continue reading

Two sherried Bowmores: Elements of Islay Bw7, The Four Isle Solera

When Ruben posted his review to The Four: Isle Solera by Woodwinters I knew I wanted some of that. And with Elements of Islay’s Bw7 for sale as well, a bottle share was quickly taking shape. I even shared two … Continue reading

Bowmore 2001, 15yo, 55.6% – Signatory for The Whisky Exchange
