Port Charlotte 14, 2004-2019, 1st Fill Sherry Hogshead, 53.4% – Dramfool for Feis Ile 2019

Peat and sherry always works. Almost always at least. And when a dram get vetted for use in Fiddler’s Advent Calendar, you know you’re in for a treat. A sample bottle this dark with a lovely whiff of briny smoke … Continue reading

Ballechin 15, 2004-2019, Bourbon casks 74+76, 52% – The Independent Whisky Bars of Scotland

I tried this whisky on two different occasions. Once at Fiddler’s in 2019, and recently when it also popped out of the Advent Calendar I’ve been going on about for a while now. Ballechin, as some of you might know, … Continue reading

James Eadie bottlings, guided by Trademark X

Ages ago, a while before this entire Corona period started, a representative of the Dutch importer for James Eadie whiskies came by and gave me some samples for reviewing. We talked whisky a little bit, and got to the brand … Continue reading

Rhumerie du Simon 15yo, 2004-2019, 61% – The Duchess

I decided that the summery weather warrants a summery drink, and what’s more summery than rum? Daiquiris maybe, but apart from that I can’t really think of anything. So, I picked this sample that Best of Wines recently sent me, … Continue reading

Springbank 2004-2015, 51.9% – Malts of Scotland

It is no secret that I love Springbank. It more or less embodies everything I like so much about the world of whisky. They are a small company that works on a rather local scale without much happening outside of … Continue reading

Kilkerran 15 year old, 2004-2019, Fino Cask, 51.6% – OB for Bresser en Timmer

I have absolutely no idea how this one slipped by me. Maybe because I just wasn’t paying attention, but normally if there’s anything from Campbeltown in a Fino Cask coming out, I need to have it. Because it is delicious, … Continue reading

Evan Williams 9yo, 2004-2013, 43.3%

A bit of a disclaimer first: I only bought this bottle to get a bit more value for money on shipping costs from a whisky auction. I did buy it several years ago and it just sat on my shelf … Continue reading

Speyburn 2004-2018, 52.5% – OB for Boomsma NL

I wrote a little introduction to Speyburn distillery a little while ago and I thought about copying it here. You know, just to check if people read with a bit of attention and notice. Anyway, this whisky was released last … Continue reading

Bunnahabhain Moine 2004, 13yo, Marsala Cask, 56.6% – OB Distillery Only

In April of last year I went to Islay with three of my best friends for a rather epic week of booze, scenery, Scotland and a few games of Cards Against Humanity. We decided to not do too many distillery … Continue reading

Miltonduff 10, 2004, 1st Fill White Wine Hogshead, 59.8% – SMWS (72.43)

This is about as random as it gets, I think. Miltonduff, which you don’t come across often and therefore I have no idea what to expect. It’s not overly old and a Speyside whisky, so my money would be on … Continue reading
