Caol Ila 10, 1989-2000, Bourbon Barrel, 46% – Cadenhead

These Cadenhead bottlings are always interesting. Most of what I tried from this era was at cask strength, and they all shared a sort of ‘razor sharp’ profile, whether it was a Rosebank, a Bladnoch, or a Laphroaig. When I … Continue reading

Mannochmore 20, 1997-2017, Bourbon Hogshead, 52.7% – Cadenhead

Mannochmore is, to me at least, one of those distilleries that pops up with something really good every decade or so, and then is quickly forgotten about. Just before deleting the second paragraph I decided to look down the annals … Continue reading

Heaven Hill 2005-2015, Bourbon Barrel MoS15042, 52.1% – Malts of Scotland

I always thing it’s funny when a brand like ‘Malts of Scotland’ releases a whisky that’s neither a malt, nor from Scotland. Of course, with all the Irish stuff and American releases that are coming out from bottlers, this happens … Continue reading

Anomaly 26yo, Bourbon Hogshead, 49% – Cadenhead Online Tasting Week

With my order going horribly wrong last year, for Cadenhead and Springbank’s Online Tasting Week, I decided to skip this one, especially since Brexit had already happened too. Of course, most whiskies were probably awesome and very reasonably priced, because … Continue reading

Ardmore 24, 1977-2004, Sherry Butt, 58.6% – Cadenhead

Generally I love Cadenhead. And also, I tend to love Ardmore. So when MvZ was pruning his collection and I could buy this bottle from him, quite a bit below current retail value, I jumped on it. Of course, it … Continue reading

Glen Scotia 26, 1992-2018, Bourbon Hogshead, 47.3% – Cadenhead

I went into this dram with great expectations. It’s Glen Scotia, which I love. It’s also Cadenhead, which I also love. Of course, both have their ups and downs. Since it’s been quite a while since I got this sample, … Continue reading

Blended Scotch Whisky 40yo, 1980-2020, 44.7% – Cadenhead’s Club

Last year’s Cadenhead’s Club release was this venerable blended Scotch from a single sherry butt. Released before Brexit came into effect it was rather easy to get a bottle over from Campbeltown and when I saw the age, the style … Continue reading

Springbank 14, 2002-2016, Bourbon Barrel, 47.7% – Cadenhead

It’s been a while since I wrote these tasting notes, but it’s Springbank and Springbank is not something to just forget about and not review it. I am a self-professed Springbank Fanboy, although I don’t even buy that much of … Continue reading

Glen Moray 1992-2018, 25yo, Bourbon Hogshead, 52.5% – Cadenhead

I generally quite like Glen Moray. Especially from independent bottlers, because the official bottlings tend to be rather too soft and gentle, almost a bit flat. Of course, they bottle all kinds of randomness at the distillery through the Distillery … Continue reading
