Bowmore 1996-2010, 14yo, 59.7% – Braunstein, DFDS Embassy Collection

Yet another Bowmore from the mid-nineties! Generally, as I have waxed about recently, I love these bourbon casks trips down memory lane. This one was bottled 10 years ago, by Braunstein, but the cask was chosen by people from DFDS, … Continue reading

Irish Single Malt, 1991-2015, 54.9% – Daily Dram

Hazelburn 2005-2018, 54.6% – Cadenhead Authentic Collection

When I bought this bottle I figured it would be a slam dunk because Springbank is a great distillery, and Cadenhead is a great bottler. Also, when you check the almost 87 points it gets on Whiskybase, you’re still good. … Continue reading
