Bowmore 17, 2002-2019, Bourbon Hogshead, 53.6% – Cadenhead

Over a decade ago I visited quite a lot of whisky tastings at De Whiskykoning in Den Bosch. Even back then, when a 6 to 10 year old Bowmore from around 2000/2002 came out from bottlers like The Ultimate or … Continue reading

Lochside 23, 1981-2005, Port Hogshead, 56.7% – Cadenhead’s Authentic Collection

Every time I review a Lochside whisky I expect it to be the last. I might have to get some more samples from Teun before it’s too late! This one didn’t come from Teun though, but from Jason B. Standing. … Continue reading

Linkwood 28, 1989-2017, Sherry Cask, 43.7% – Cadenhead Singapore

A quite rare bottle today! It’s a bottling from six-ish years ago and according to Whiskybase its price is still € 225, so I don’t think it has shown up on Whiskybase’s radar since it’s release years ago. Even though … Continue reading

Port Ellen 16, 1981-1998, 62.4% – Cadenhead Authentic Collection

Sometimes Tom van Engelen sends me reviews for publication on MaltFascination. Sometimes I forget. So now I have a backlog of a few that I’m trying to get through before the end of the year. Young Port Ellen has become … Continue reading

Glen Scotia 17, 1977-1994, 57.5% – Cadenhead Authentic Collection

Unless things go horribly awry, I’ll be in Campbeltown in 9 days. Contrary to what you might expect we’re not visiting any distilleries, since time is ridiculously limited and we’re already visiting Watt Whisky. Of course, we’re visiting some shops … Continue reading

Clynelish 15, 1992-2008, Bourbon Hogshead, 56.4% – Cadenhead Authentic Collection

To say that Clynelish can do no wrong in my book is a bit of a stretch, but I am a bit of a fan of the distillery’s output. In my book that makes the balance swing both ways. When … Continue reading

The best of 2021, part deux

Apart from last week’s post on what whiskies were strictly the best according to my rating, there are two lists that I still want to get out there. The first is the ‘not best but very impressive otherwise’ whiskies, and … Continue reading

Glenrothes 22, 1996-2018, Bourbon Hogshead, 50.5% – Cadenhead’s Whisky Market Cologne

My whisky buddy RvB sometimes tours with his band, and when he does, he visits Cadenhead shops across Europe. Generally, that results in a bottle-share or two. This bottle is one of such shares, if I remember correctly. And, with … Continue reading

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
