Anon. Batch 1, 13yo, 51.5% – Abbey Whisky

Anon. (with the period, apparently) is an undisclosed single malt from Abbey Whisky’s ‘The Rare Casks’ releases. It’s been available for a while now and they sent me a sample a little while ago. It’s about time I reviewed it. There’s … Continue reading

Another iteration of an Usquebaugh Regional Tasting

Every once in a while we do a regional tasting for Usquebaugh Society members. Today was another one themed ‘patience’. That boiled down to mostly bottles from a couple of years ago. In some cases that ‘couple’ is an understatement. … Continue reading

GlenDronach 20yo, 1994-2014, Cask #3400, 54.8% – Bottled for Abbey Whisky

Last year I tried a GlenDronach that I really regret not getting a bottle of. Strangely though, I tried again in the Blind Tasting Competition and I wasn’t fond of it. Others had the same experience but upon trying that … Continue reading

Blind Tasting Competition 7: Bowmore Devil’s Casks II, 10yo, 56.3%

A third in and yesterday I climbed to the fourth spot. I have no illusion of keeping this up, but so far I’m on quite a streak compared to other years. I actually managed to get points every day so … Continue reading

Kilchoman 2009-2014, 5 years old, PX finish, 58.3% – Exclusive for Abbey Whisky

The last of the four Abbey Whisky releases I’m doing currently. So far all’s been good and I’m doubting whether or not I’ve seen such consistent quality in a series of private releases recently. Also, I’m doing the third Kilchoman … Continue reading

Bunnahabhain 23yo, 1989-2013, 44% – Abbey Whisky’s Rare Casks

Another pretty well aged whisky. I’ve seen other sites starting to call whisky of some 18 to 30 years old ‘medium aged’. I still consider that pretty old. Just to keep myself from getting to ridiculously spoiled. I also think … Continue reading

Glencadam 1991-2014, 22yo, 55.3% – Abbey Whisky’s Rare Casks

The second sample from Abbey Whisky. They sent me this only last week and it being a release from 2014 it’s one of the more current releases I’ve tried in a while. Generally I’m not all that focused on tasting … Continue reading

Ben Nevis 16yo, 1997-2013, 55% – Abbey Whisky’s Rare Casks

I’m not sure what it is with Ben Nevis. I haven’t tasted many of them and I only ‘almost visited’ the distillery. The ones I’ve tasted weren’t even all good with some truly horrendous whisky in the mix. Still, I … Continue reading
