Linkwood 10, 54.2% – The Whisky Exchange Christmas Malt 2019

I was surprised when I opened the package with this sample in it. The Christmas Malt was announced, but in virtually all other situations you’d be finding a dark, sherry matured whisky. Not so in this case! This 10 year … Continue reading

Two Highland Park from 2002

Recently, Highland Park have started to be a lot more prolific in private cask releases. There’s still a slew of ‘Undisclosed Orkney’ going around, but I’m 99% sure that that is all Highland Park too, just without the official label … Continue reading

Laphroaig 20, 1995-2015, 58.4% – SMWS (Essence of Islay)

Yet another completely random sample that I most likely got from a Bottle Share. As you can see by the year of bottling in the title, this has been collecting dust for about four years, with me completely forgetting about … Continue reading

Bowmore 2000-2014, 54.4% – Signatory Vintage for The Whisky Exchange

I really was happy with all these 2000 Bowmores. It started with a slew of them around 2009 from Berry Brother’s & Rudd. Then, a few years later this one came out, and if I remember correctly there were a … Continue reading

Glendullan 13, 2001, 56.2% – SMWS (84.17, Fluffernutter)

Who in the world can think of a thing like ‘Fluffernutter’ and NOT think of things with a PG rating? Fluffernutter? Really? Anyway, this Glendullan, a whisky you don’t come across often, was bottled quite a while ago by the … Continue reading
