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

Old Pulteney 1990-2015, 53.7% – Cadenhead

I’m looking north again, in regards to whisky. Not necessarily to Scotland, which is entirely north of The Netherlands, but mostly to Orkney, Sutherland, Caithness and the Highland Council regions of Scotland. Distilleries like Balblair, Old Pulteney and Highland Park … Continue reading

Glen Moray 24, 1992-2017, 50.9% – Cadenhead

Glen Moray is one of those distilleries that make an amazing spirit, but in their own releases there’s often so much done to it, that it loses its greatness. A quick search on the internet reveals there’s a Cabernet, Sherry, … Continue reading

Springbank 2001-2010, 8yo, Cognac Cask, 58.5% – Cadenhead

Back in 2010 I went to Scotland for the first time. My wife and I decided to do things right and we had some money in our pockets. I had just sold my Magic: The Gathering collection, something I now … Continue reading

Caol Ila 34yo, 1982-2016, 60.1% – Cadenhead

Back in 2016 when I bought two sizable samples of this, I wasn’t overly impressed. I don’t remember why and I don’t remember what I expected. However, it made me forget sample number two until recently, when I could try … Continue reading

Benrinnes 1995-2019, 51.1% – Cadenhead

During 2018 and 2019 Cadenhead released quite a few of Benrinnes from the first half of the nineties. Some where in their small batch series, like this one, but there were some single casks too, as well as some bottlings … Continue reading

Dufftown 1979, 18yo, 57.1% – Cadenhead’s Authentic Collection

When you see the whisky the ‘Sherrywood Matured’ on the label is kind of self explanatory. The whisky, in the bottle, is almost as dark as coffee, and even in the glass there’s quite some color to it. Also, as … Continue reading
