Blind Tasting Competition Day 5: Highland Park 1992-2015, 22 yo, 59.6% – Cadenhead Wood Range (Sherry Cask)

As expected, yesterday was another zero-pointer. I had everything wrong about this whisky, apart from the fact that it was a cask strength dram. That’s something that, obviously, is not getting you any points at all. It seems that I … Continue reading

Caol Ila 30, 1984-2014, 56.2% – Cadenhead’s Authentic Collection

The Caol Ilas we’ve seen over the last couple of years have shown some true greatness, especially those bottled at some 30 years old. The early eighties seem to have been some great years for the Port Askaig distillery. This … Continue reading
