BenRiach ‘The Smoky Ten’, Bourbon & Rum & Virgin Oak Casks, 46%

Bunnahabhain 33, 1980-2013, Bourbon Barrel, 45% – James MacArthur

Longmorn 10, 2011-2022, 52.4% – Michiel Wigman ‘They Inspired’

Glen Moray is one of those distilleries that tends to have a style that is fairly generic. It makes a perfectly decent Speyside style whisky, but often it doesn’t really make memories. However, some times what comes from the Elgin … Continue reading

Benrinnes 12, 2007-2020, Cask 14358, 54.9% – WIN for Whisky Weekend Twente

Whisky Weekend Twente is one of the many whisky festivals in The Netherlands. It is also one that I’ve never been to, since it’s quite far away (to Dutch standards) and it’s one of those festivals where it’s mostly importers … Continue reading
