The best of 2021

Apart from looking back, using hindsight to evaluate what happened on a more generic level, there was of course a lot of booze last year. In The Netherlands bottle-shops are in the same legal category as supermarkets and other foodstuff … Continue reading

Westport 12, 2004-2016, Sherry Butt 900053, 54.3% – Wilson & Morgan

This one has to start with a bit of clarity. Westport is a randomly chosen name used for certain blended malts. These blended malts are always (with a grain of salt, since there’s no definite certainty on it, due to … Continue reading

Glenmorangie 15, 2005-2020, 58.1% – SMWS 125.77 (Graceful Elegance)

I’m not entirely sure how gracefully elegant a 58.1% whisky will be, especially not as a first dram, but let’s give it a go. It’s been a while since I had an SMWS bottling, and I didn’t doubt long to … Continue reading

Glenmorangie Tùsail, 46%

When this was released I tried to bottle-share it, but I believe no one was interested. Why care about Glenmorangie, right? However, the entire concept of this bottling, with the maris-otter barley instead of regular far-more-yielding barley was something that … Continue reading

Glenmorangie 19, Finest Reserve, 43%

I somehow don’t review too many Glenmorangies, while I do really like the distillery’s output. This not reviewing many is mostly because their core range is very stable and they don’t do too many special releases. Also, a lot of … Continue reading

Glenmorangie Signet, 46%

In his recent guest post, Shai called Glenmorangie Signet ‘his favorite whisky he likes to drink, but not buy’. I found that a curious statement, but it got me thinking about it. When Signet came out, I guess about a … Continue reading

Good whisky and good times at the Lufthansa First Class Terminal

To keep the posts flowing, I’ve come to realize that guest posts are a helpful thing. If I’m not mistaken, it has only happened once before, in eight years time. Today sees the second one. My friend Shai, sometimes mentioned … Continue reading

Autumn clearance

Well, not really a clearance since that would involve big discounts. The misses and I have decided that it’s finally time to start doing some construction on our attic. It’s been in the pipeline for a few years but we’ve … Continue reading

Glenmorangie Milsean, 46%

For the seventh time Glenmorangie releases their annual Private Edition series. So far there have been hits and misses, and for me some unknown. The biggest success in the range was the Ealanta, I think. The Virgin Oak matured whisky was … Continue reading

Glenmorangie Ealanta, 46%, 19 year old Virgin Oak, Private Release

Every time Glenmorangie release a new Private Release the internet buzzes with reviews of it, and generally the bottling sells out really quickly. So far the only ones that didn’t sell out fast were the Sonnalta and the Finealta. And … Continue reading
