Linkwood 11, 2009-2021, Rum Cask Finish, 58.2% – King Cask

So this, in a way, is a weird one. I know that the cask was transported out of Scotland and into/onto Terschelling, one of the Dutch islands in the north of the country. It was recasked there in a rum … Continue reading

Three random, high octane GlenAllachie

GlenAllachie has been making name for themselves since Billie Walker took over a couple of years ago. While it was a bit of a generic distillery beforehand, focused on producing whisky for blenders, they now are releasing lots (and I … Continue reading

Edradour 10, 2009-2020, Sherry Butt 401, 46% – Signatory

A little while I wanted a rather specific whisky that wasn’t available in ‘regular’ shops anymore. But, according to Whiskybase there was this shop in The Netherlands that still had it. It was called ‘Whisky Exclusive‘. In a way, that … Continue reading

Deanston 10, 2009-2020, Rye Barrel 6349, 58.4% – Infrequent Flyers

Generally, Deanston is regarded as a technically well made whisky, but also a rather bland one. Most of the available releases are bourbon-cask-driven vanilla bombs, or are focused heavily on another type of wood that the whisky matured in. As … Continue reading

Knockdhu 10, 2009-2020, Cask 700308, 56.6% – A.D. Rattray for The Whisky Bar Oslo

How’s that for an obscure bottle! Longmorn Brother GvB brought it by and was kind enough to give me a sample a little while ago. It’s been ages since I tried a Knockdhu, and I like the official line of … Continue reading

Ledaig 11, 2009-2020, Hogshead 700510, 58.9% – Whiskybase

Another 10,000 unique bottles were added to Whiskybase, so there had to be another single cask bottling. This time around, they picked a Ledaig, or a peated Tobermory, from a bourbon cask. Generally, as the last couple of years have … Continue reading

GlenGlassaugh Rare Cask 11, 2009-2020, Port Pipe 1830, 55.4% – OB

GlenGlassaugh was reopened in 2008, under guidance of Billy Walker, who took over BenRiach and GlenDronach before then. He’s now active at GlenAllachie since selling the trio of distilleries to Brown-Forman. EDIT: GlenGlassaugh was restarted under guidance of Stuart Nicholson. … 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

Ledaig 11, 2009-2020, 54.4% – The Whisky Kingdom

Yet another bottling for the German ‘Wu Dram Clan’. I guess Wu Dram is striving to be forever. This time it’s a Ledaig, or peated Tobermory if you will, from a bourbon hogshead. I was a bit apprehensive about it … Continue reading
