Glenlivet 25, 1995-2020, American Oak Barrel 9480, 55.3% – OB for Jack Tar

‘OB for Jack Tar’ doesn’t really cover it, since it’s indeed an OB, but selected by La Maison du Whisky, under private label for Jack Tar, for the Chinese market. That doesn’t really fit the title, though. Anyway. Glenlivet is … Continue reading

Glenlivet 1949-1980s, 40% – Gordon & MacPhail ‘George & J.G. Smith’s’

A while ago I got a surprise sample with an order from Best of Wines in Bussum. Apparently they had gotten some open bottles when buying a collection and this was one of them. If memory serves, that is. Of … Continue reading

Glenlivet 26, 1977, 52.9% – Kingsbury

It’s not often you come across a bottle of anything from Kingsbury. It being a bottler from Japan, and such. And it becomes even more rare when it’s such an old Glenlivet. This 26 year old whisky must, logically, have … Continue reading

Black Bull 40 #1, Black Bull 40 #4 and a rant on Black Bull 40

A lot of bull in this post, and that might be interpreted in multiple ways. Which is a good thing. A bit of ambiguity never hurt anyone. I think it was last week that I saw announcements for the new release … Continue reading

Smith’s Glenlivet 1974, 43% – Gordon & MacPhail’s Rare Vintage

Glenlivet doesn’t pop up all that often in independent bottlings. Also is it not quite on the radar of the usual suspects I taste whisky with. The result of that is, of course, that I don’t try many Glenlivets. This … Continue reading

Glenlivet 1998, 15yo, 54.8% – Signatory for Whiskybrother

It doesn’t happen often that I get to review a Glenlivet. I’m not entirely sure why that is because there’s plenty of their booze out there, but it’s just one of those big brands that I somehow never drink. Glenfiddich … Continue reading

Glenlivet 20, 1993-2014, 47.1% – SMWS (2.88 Cinderella weeping over matchmakers)

With post titles of this length means we’re back in SMWS territory. A place I don’t mind dwelling all that much. Of course, they have their misses every now and then, and some bottlings are just not all that interesting, … Continue reading

Whisky paraphernalia

I like stuff that is related to whisky. I’m not sure why, but when I see adzes on the flea market in town at King’s Day I want them, since it’s a cooper’s tool. I am never going to use … Continue reading
