Kilkerran 11, Open Day 2017, 1st Fill Bourbon Barrel, Triple Distilled, 60.3%

By now it’s almost six years ago I got these samples from Ben Cops’ ‘Campbeltown Mega Share’, back when that particular bottle-share group was still active. He also used to run a whisky blog but that seems to be on … Continue reading

Springbank 11, 2011-2022, Local Barley, 55.1%

With it being Liberation Day in the Netherlands, I decided to liberate the last of my sample of this from its bottle. I was lucky enough to do a bottle-share with this, after winning a ballot for it at AceDrinks. … Continue reading

Longrow 15, Oloroso Hogsheads, 56.2% – Open Day 2022

I’m glad this one only had a Whiskybase number on the side of the bottle instead of a full label. That would have caused much more anticipation and maybe would have been suggestive in to what to expect. Of course, … Continue reading

Hazelburn 21, 2022 release, 46%

Hazelburn has come of age. The oldest version out there seems to be 22 years old by now, but this one, released last year, must have been the oldest back then. I feel like an old fart when I say … Continue reading

Glen Scotia 1991-2015, Hogshead, 46% – Wemyss ‘Leather Bound Ledger’

So, old books and cracker leather lay ahead of us, going by the title. Wemyss is a bit of an oddball bottler in my book. Not in a very negative way, but I do think their blended malts get in … Continue reading

Kilkerran 8, 2007-2015, Barolo Wine Cask, 61% – OB for Belgium

Another one of these random samples from the sample cupboard. I have no idea where it came from, but it’s an interesting one so I’m not going to feel bad about that for too long! It’s been a while since … Continue reading

Springbank ‘The Peat Bog’ 29, 1990-2019, Bourbon Cask 204, 47.5% – Glenscoma

Since this was released in 2019, and I was very active in the whisky scene (as a consumer) I would expect to be aware this bottle existed. Of course, I was not, and it wasn’t until I saw it listed … Continue reading
