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

Once more, Tom van Engelen shares his take on things going on in his world of whisky. This time around he reviews a sample he got his hands on, of a Springbank bottling from yonder year. The 1980s were hard times … Continue reading

Kilkerran 11, 2006-2017, Rum Barrel, 57.7% – Cadenhead’s Warehouse Tasting

Another find in the sample stash. I started writing these tasting notes a bit apprehensive. Over the years there have been quite some Kilkerrans that I didn’t enjoy much. In my opinion it ranks just above Hazelburn as a brand. … Continue reading

Paul John 5yo, Summer 2017, 57.4% – Cadenhead

Paul John (not Ringo George) is one of those weird distilleries that somehow don’t really resonate with me. Which is increasingly rare since I think about what I tried from them. None of the whiskies have been bad, most have … Continue reading

Inchmurrin 42yo, 1973-2016, 44.3% – Cadenhead

One of these samples I found in my collection. Yet again. Inchmurrin, as some of you will know, is one of the many brands of Loch Lomond Distillery in Alexandria, near the loch of the same name. Inchmurrin is one … Continue reading

Blended Scotch Whisky, 20yo, 1998-2019, 44.6% – Cadenhead’s Club

The Cadenhead’s Club is a club I became aware of some two or three years ago. It’s similar to the Springbank Society (no surprise there, them being run from the same building, by the same owner), with a £ 50 … Continue reading
