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

Bruichladdich 27, 1998-2016, 50.2% – Cadenhead’s Authentic Collection

I love Cadenhead’s and I love Bruichladdich. Not everything from both these places is awesome, but when Bruichladdich comes from a ‘normal’ cask, my level of trust rises. I got this when it came out years ago and have slowly … Continue reading

Laphroaig 20yo, 1998-2018, 54.3% – Cadenhead

Since yesterday was Laphroaig’s day on Feis Ile (if I’m not mistaken), I decided to do a very private version of that, by finally drinking this sample of a 20 year old bottling from Cadenhead. It’s a mix of two … Continue reading

Guest post: The Battle of the Benrinnes (1979 vs 2000)

It’s been some time, but I’ve got another guest-post lined up for you! My friend Tom van Engelen wrote about his experience comparing two Benrinnes to each other. Their distillation date is more than two decades apart so there should … Continue reading
