Kilchoman 13, 2007-2020, Bourbon Barrel 69/2007, 55.5% – OB for Max & Julia

I got a wee sample of this from the guy who owned the cask, and he asked me to review it. Of course I didn’t do that right away, since that’s not really how I operate. Shameful, but true… A … Continue reading

Watt Whisky, the second wave

I’ve not really kept track of it, but as far as I am aware, the following five whiskies were the second batch of bottlings that were made available recently. An easy check of their website says the following whiskies are … Continue reading

Ledaig 2007-2015, 8yo, 52.3% – Beacon Spirits

It’s with shame that I start this review. I got this sample from Bert Dexters, of Beacon Spirits, years ago and have completely missed it in reviewing. My sincere apologies, Bert. A young Ledaig as we have seen quite regularly … Continue reading

Kilchoman 2007-2016, 8yo, 56.6% – OB for Feis Ile 2016

Four years ago I bought samples of almost all Feis Ile bottlings, along with some samples from the Campbeltown Festival. This is not one of those cases where I completely forgot about the samples and found them again, but mostly … Continue reading

Longrow 11yo, Refill Re-charred Sherry Butts, 56.9% – Springbank Society

This bottle was the first one I emptied this year. Of course, it’s only been a week, but still. This also means I’ve not done anything on this blog that has been a staple since the beginning, with end-of-year lists … Continue reading

Secret Speyside 2007-2018, 10yo, 55.2% – The Maltman

I’ve been told this bottling is a ten year old Macallan, but with how rare these things have become over the last couple of years I’m not 100% sure about that. Still, there’s a distinct possibility for it to be … Continue reading

Yet another, but for now the last, sample from a The Whisky Exchange exclusive bottling. In this case it’s an Inchmoan whisky. Inchmoan is one of the brands of Loch Lomond Distillery, in this case the heavily peated version of … Continue reading

Tamdhu 2007-2017, 10yo, 55.4% – Creative Whisky Company for Drinks & Gifts

This cask was bottled for my local bottle-shop last year. I had to check, but it was bottled for the 10th anniversary of the shop. Since their inception they’ve gone from a tiny cornershop to a much larger and more … Continue reading

Kilkerran 11, 2007-2018, Sherry Butt, 58.1% – Cadenhead

I just opened up the stats on this Kilkerran on Whiskybase and it’s currently going for € 162. It was released in July, and back then it was not even € 80. It has already doubled in price. Maybe at … Continue reading

Have you ever tasted Loch Ewe?

Tom van Engelen found another weird sample in his cupboard and decided to write about it. At some length, as we’ve come to expect. Fun additional fact: The Loch Ewe Distillery and the accompanying hotel appear to be for sale … Continue reading
