Yesterday was the annual Bottoms Up tasting. I was invited becaus I went to (or brought enough people to) tastings last year. I hope I make it again for next year. I didn’t take any in depth notes because I … Continue reading

Ardbeg Ardbog, whatever. 52.1%

I’m not sure if this is supposed to be called The Ardbeg Ardbog, or just Ardbog. At least it’s this year’s Ardbeg Day bottling. They’ve picked up the Ardbeg Day idea a few years ago when they started to open … Continue reading

Kilchoman Feis Ile 2013, 2008-2013, 60.1%

Bowmore Feis Ile 2013, 56.5%

A little while ago I booked 8 spots at De Whiskykoning‘s ‘winter tasting’. Winter boils down to peat in his book and this time around he had been able to gather six Feis Ile bottlings, if you count the Ardbeg … Continue reading
