Lochside 23, 1981-2005, Port Hogshead, 56.7% – Cadenhead’s Authentic Collection

Every time I review a Lochside whisky I expect it to be the last. I might have to get some more samples from Teun before it’s too late! This one didn’t come from Teun though, but from Jason B. Standing. … Continue reading

Port Ellen 16, 1981-1998, 62.4% – Cadenhead Authentic Collection

Sometimes Tom van Engelen sends me reviews for publication on MaltFascination. Sometimes I forget. So now I have a backlog of a few that I’m trying to get through before the end of the year. Young Port Ellen has become … Continue reading

Glen Scotia 17, 1977-1994, 57.5% – Cadenhead Authentic Collection

Unless things go horribly awry, I’ll be in Campbeltown in 9 days. Contrary to what you might expect we’re not visiting any distilleries, since time is ridiculously limited and we’re already visiting Watt Whisky. Of course, we’re visiting some shops … Continue reading

Glen Moray 1992-2018, 25yo, Bourbon Hogshead, 52.5% – Cadenhead

I generally quite like Glen Moray. Especially from independent bottlers, because the official bottlings tend to be rather too soft and gentle, almost a bit flat. Of course, they bottle all kinds of randomness at the distillery through the Distillery … Continue reading

Bruichladdich 27, 1998-2016, 50.2% – Cadenhead’s Authentic Collection

I love Cadenhead’s and I love Bruichladdich. Not everything from both these places is awesome, but when Bruichladdich comes from a ‘normal’ cask, my level of trust rises. I got this when it came out years ago and have slowly … Continue reading

Springbank 2001-2010, 8yo, Cognac Cask, 58.5% – Cadenhead

Back in 2010 I went to Scotland for the first time. My wife and I decided to do things right and we had some money in our pockets. I had just sold my Magic: The Gathering collection, something I now … Continue reading

Dufftown 1979, 18yo, 57.1% – Cadenhead’s Authentic Collection

When you see the whisky the ‘Sherrywood Matured’ on the label is kind of self explanatory. The whisky, in the bottle, is almost as dark as coffee, and even in the glass there’s quite some color to it. Also, as … Continue reading

Mortlach 26yo, 1988-2015, 56.1% – Cadenhead

Since I’ve been going through heaps of samples over the last year to diminish that collection at home, I’ve encountered lots of stuff I forgot I had. There even was a sample of Brora and a Port Ellen in there. … Continue reading

Glenlochy 1977-1996, 18yo, 60.5% – Cadenhead’s

On Whiskybase there’s a remark for this whisky that it was sold in auction in 2015. Don’t I know it! I finally managed to get my hands on an old Glenlochy! It’s one from Cadenhead’s from two decades ago, so … Continue reading

BTC sample 6: Glen Spey, 1995-2015, 20yo, 52.7%, Cadenhead’s

Apart from the one I didn’t enter in time, this is the first zero pointer I got this year. While that boils down to the second one in six days, that’s actually quite an okay score compared to previous years. … Continue reading
