This Blended Scotch Whisky consists of Ben Nevis, Clynelish, Teaninich, Macduff, Dailuaine and Invergordon. Not the least interesting names in the business! Also, while this states having had an Oloroso finish, what didn’t really fit the title, is that that … Continue reading

Ben Nevis 5, 2015-2020, First Fill Oloroso Cask 10715, 58.9% – Adelphi for Whisky Import Nederland

When there’s a label from a respected bottler like Adelphi stating that the contents are Ben Nevis, the bottles tend to fly off the shelves. In this case that might have gone even faster since it’s a split cask, for … Continue reading

It took some doing and the sample that Wu Dram Clan sent me has now seen more of Europe than I have in the last decade, but eventually it arrived home. Of course, it was a rather highly anticipated whisky, … Continue reading

WhiskyBroker is one of the more affordable bottlers out there, together with brands like The Ultimate and such. The brand started its existence when the Bladnoch Forum bottlings stopped, which also was a rather erratic, but always affordable bottler. The … Continue reading

Ben Nevis 10, 46%

I don’t think I’ve ever had a shorter title to a post! Anyway, Ben Nevis is one of those distilleries that was considered pretty shit for a long time. Except, a couple of years ago, say five, they revamped themselves … Continue reading

Ben Nevis 9, 2011-2020, Bourbon Barrels, 46% – Signatory Vintage

When a new Ben Nevis pops up, I am automatically enthusiastic, since most of them are very good nowadays. When that one is young I get a little bit less thrilled, but when it’s only about € 40, that kind … Continue reading
