Glen Moray 13, 2007-2021, Barrel 5952, 58.8% – Archives

Glen Moray, to me, is pretty much a blank canvas. As in, the spirit is very gentle and sweet and gives a lot of play room for the cask to interact with the spirit. Unfortunately, that also means there are … Continue reading

Kilkerran 8, 2007-2015, Barolo Wine Cask, 61% – OB for Belgium

Another one of these random samples from the sample cupboard. I have no idea where it came from, but it’s an interesting one so I’m not going to feel bad about that for too long! It’s been a while since … Continue reading

Fettercairn 14, 2007-2021, Oloroso Sherry Puncheon 1823, 55.2% – Infrequent Flyers

One of those blind-spot whiskies because I generally don’t care about the distillery’s output. This one wasn’t that bad at all, but because of my limited knowledge, I never even really considered Fettercairn. I randomly guessed BenRiach, because it was … Continue reading

Hazelburn 11, 2007-2019, Re-Charred Bourbon Barrels, 54.2% – Springbank Society

This is one with a bit of history. I ordered it from the Society back in 2019, and even though I tried arranging pick-up or delivery quite a few times, it never actually happened. I was only able to pick … Continue reading

Caol Ila 15, 2007-2022, PX Sherry Butt Finish, 54.6% – Douglas Laing’s Old Particular

This bottling, from the Dutch Dram Masters series, is a brand new one. It just came out a few days ago and somehow it grabbed my attention, unlike a lot of Islay whiskies nowadays. Pretty labelling helps, but other than … Continue reading

7 Springbank Local Barleys

When on holiday in France, several weeks ago, I was having a quiet afternoon. It was about 35 degrees (C, obviously), the kids and my wife were at the camping’s swimming pool. I decided it was a good time to … Continue reading

Springbank’s output, from Sauternes casks

And no, not just Springbank from Sauternes casks, there’s also the Longrow and Hazelburn. These three bottles were released some five years ago for the Springbank Society. They are all about the same age, with the Hazelburn being a few … Continue reading

Dailuaine 12, 2007, Bourbon Barrel 41.128, 58.4% – SMWS (Perverse Pineapples)

So, I got a sample of this one based on the positive reviews it was getting on Whiskybase, by some of the people who were offering samples in my wee bottle-share group. Something-something pineapples also helped, since that’s something I … Continue reading

Two French spirits, a young Fine and an old Armagnac

These French spirits seem on the up and up, on my blog. I know last year saw more French stuff reviewed than ever before. And although I already quite liked Armagnac, I never expected the depth and breadth of Cognac … Continue reading
