Uitvlugt 27, 1993-2020, Refill Bourbon cask 5, 50.1% – The Duchess

A little while ago I got another awesome rum sample from Best of Wines, but I waited a little while to sit down for it and give it the attention it deserves. It’s another one in The Duchess’ Hummingbird series … Continue reading

Old Rhosdhu 29, 1990-2020, Refill Hogshead 416, 48.2% – WhiskyNerds

About two weeks ago the newest WhiskyNerds release came out. This time they opted for an Old Rhosdhu from 1990. Old Rhosdhu is one of the older brands of Loch Lomond Distillery. So, in a way this is not a … Continue reading

Girvan 27, 1989-2017, Bourbon Barrel 167863, 51.4% – Càrn Mòr Celebration of the Cask

Let’s start with a disclaimer. I generally don’t care much for grain whisky. In most cases, especially in the last eight years or so, I consider it to be bottled too young. Before then, there were lots of really tasty … Continue reading

Orkney Island 2005-2020, 14yo, 59.7% – Berry Bros & Rudd for Whiskybase

Of course this is Highland Park. All of the ‘undisclosed’ Orkney whiskies are Highland Park. This one was released sometime during the end of last year and I scored a bottle for bottle-sharing. I ended up with some 10cl for … Continue reading

Glen Morey 1977-2012, Bourbon Hogshead MoS 12021, 52.1% – Malts of Scotland

Yes, Glen Morey. At least, that’s according to the label. Malts of Scotland is famous for two things in my book: great whisky and typos on labels. “Images of Bartstown”, anyone? Anyway, this 1977 Glen Moray was bottled almost a … Continue reading

Whiskykoning’s “Autumn Tasting”

For every season there is a tasting at De Whiskykoning. Of course, in 2020 those couldn’t happen. However, Rob (the owner) decided to sell packs of samples with a description, and make youtube movies for the tasting. Of course, I … Continue reading

Glen Scotia 20, 1992-2012, 51.9% – Westwood Whisky

This completely random Glen Scotia came from an auction a few months ago. By now the bottle is empty because of me liking the whisky, it being used in a tasting and some bottle-shares. For some reason the ‘Westwood’ thing … Continue reading

Torabhaig 2017, The Legacy Series – The Inaugural Release, 46%

This has been a long awaited thing to happen. A new distillery on Skye! A few years ago when they started building the Torabhaig Distillery, they more or less instantly killed Talisker’s marketing engine of being the only distillery on … Continue reading

Glen Scotia Dunnage Warehouse Tasting

As with virtually everything, Glen Scotia’s open day during the Campbeltown Malts Festival got cancelled. Maybe ‘virtually’ isn’t the right word, because the virtual version is the one thing that did take place. To compensate the sadness that followed of … Continue reading
