Peatside 10, 2011-2021, ex-Madeira Cask 5541, 53.2% – Kintra Whisky

Instead of ‘Tomorrow’ this review shows up 6 days after the previous Kintra Whisky. This one is an undisclosed whisky from a peated distillate. If memory serves even the bottler, Erik Molenaar, doesn’t know the distillery this whisky was made … Continue reading

Thalassa Whisky 10, 2011-2022, 55% – King Cask

Another one of those weird whiskies from King Cask. And by weird I am talking about the way it came to be instead of the actual whisky. This one, with an ‘Origin near the Falls of Bruar’, or as is … Continue reading

Blair Athol 10, 2011-2021, 3 Red Wine Barriques, 50% – Uncharted Whisky Co.

I know where I got a sample of this, but I can’t for the life of me remember why. As in, I like Blair Athol well enough, but why on earth would I spend money (if I did) on a … Continue reading

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you might have noticed that virtually all of Michiel Wigman’s whiskies have been reviewed here. I bet I missed some, and I do know I have some other spirits of his … Continue reading

Dailuaine 11, 2011-2022, Bourbon cask AM 162, 52% – Asta Morris

Of late there have been quite some independent releases of Dailuaine from around 2010-2011-ish. They tend to be rather funky but generally quite lovely. Not all of them are great, but when they are being advertised as ‘affordable Clynelish’ and … Continue reading

Caol Ila 10, 2011-2022, Sherry Hogshead 5846, 57.5% – WhiskyNerds

It’s been a while but it is time for another WhiskyNerds bottling. A cask selected by Bram and Floris for the Dutch market, and in that market only selected retailers. Mostly, that boils down to the shops that the Nerds … Continue reading

Lowlands whiskies, their trouble, and an Ailsa Bay

From a regional perspective, as far as that is still a thing in Scotch whisky, the Lowlands are a strange one. If you regard the size of the regions it’s only second to the Highlands. But when it comes to … Continue reading

Bruichladdich 8, 2011-2019, Bourbon Cask #150, 65.8% – Lady of the Glen

I doubt if I ever had a dram from Lady of the Glen before. Probably, but not one I remember without doing more research into old tasting notes. Anyway, it’s a bottler, like there are many. Even though there are … Continue reading
