Hazelburn 13, 2007-2021, 48.6%

Honestly, I don’t even know if this is an annual release, or this just pops up with regular Springbank batches. I’ve not kept track. What Whiskybase can tell me, though, is that this is comprised of bourbon casks (75%) and … Continue reading

Secret Islay 2007-2021, 14yo, Monbazillac Cask, 51.7% – Michiel Wigman, They Inspired II

Just to clear some things up, Monbazillac is a French dessert wine, a sweet wine not unlike Sauternes or Muscat. As proven by Caol Ila’s Distiller’s Edition, this works quite well, generally. This Secret Islay is truly secret, Michiel Wigman … Continue reading

Secret Highland 12, 2007-2020, Hogshead, 47.8% – The Whisky Agency

As far as bottlers go, The Whisky Agency operates in the top layer of them. There’s some others up there, but not many. So, when a joint bottling with Heads & Tails came out, I got a little bit thrileld. … Continue reading

Back in the day when the United Kingdom was still part of Europe, these three GlenAllachies were released. I didn’t really notice them until they didn’t sell ridiculously well and they were slightly discounted. Of course, a bottle-share followed suit, … Continue reading

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

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
