Every couple of months someone in the province of Noord-Holland organises the regional tasting for the Usquebaugh Society. They do this too in other areas of the country but not in the same way, where it is at someone’s home. … Continue reading

GlenDronach 21yo, 1993-2014, Cask #23, 52.1% – OB for WhiskyBase

When this bottling was announced I knew right away that I wanted it. Somewhat strange because not all my experiences with GlenDronachs are that good and I’ve had at least one single cask from 1994 that I just didn’t like … Continue reading

The last third of the competition commences now. We’ve had 12 drams so far with a possible 1200 points to score. I am slightly ashamed that I’ve not even managed to get 300 points, I’m at 292 at the moment … Continue reading

Bottoms Up!

Tonight a couple of friends and I are going to try and get my open-bottle-count down somewhat. Since I’ve been trying to do this on my own last year I found that a) it doesn’t work that well, and b) … Continue reading

GlenDronach 21 Parliament, 48%

I’m starting to be a right GlenDronach addict. Quite weird for someone who generally says he prefers bourbon casks. Also, I’ve never really tasted those really old and expensive ones. Usually I stall around the early nineties and everything older … Continue reading

Blind Tasting Competition 10 – Deanston Distillery Only, 20yo, Lepanto Brandy Cask finish, 57.4%

That’s a mouth full, as was the whisky. I’m sorry for not posting anything for a couple of days. I have been away for the weekend and I thought I had tasted ahead, but missed the deadline. I also counted … Continue reading

GlenDronach 18 Allardice, 46%

The first version of the Allardice was released alongside the 15 year old Revival. Most people preferred the Revival for its ridiculous amount of sherry cask influence. And at 15 years in such an active butt the stuff is almost … Continue reading

Upcoming events

Since this autumn I was mostly preoccupied with becoming a daddy, I didn’t visit too many festivals and events. Now spring is supposed to be in the air, I am trying to rectify that and there is quite a bit … Continue reading
