Foursquare Hereditas 14yo, Barbados, 56% – The Whisky Exchange

Jura One and All, 21yo, 51%

Let’s get this out: I generally think of Jura as my second least favorite distillery in Scotland. The number one spot is taken by Abhainn Dearg. Somehow, I decided to give them another chance two years ago when this one … Continue reading

Springbank 1992-2019, 47.7% – Whisky Kingdom & Duckhammers Rare & Fine

Balblair 1999-2017, 3rd release, 46%

Recently Balblair have switched to using age statements instead of vintages. I can understand the marketing effectiveness of it, since vintages don’t really mean anything unless you also clearly state when something was bottled. This one, however, was bottled in … Continue reading
