Clynelish 8, 2010/2011-2020, Parcel No. 2, 48% – Single Malts of Scotland Reserve Casks

For a few years, Single Malts of Scotland, from Elixir Distillers, have branched out a little bit and have started doing small batches of whiskies instead of single casks. This Clynelish is one that came out two years ago and … Continue reading

Glencadam 19, 1990-2010, Bourbon/Sherry Cask 5984, 56.3% – A.D. Rattray

Well, this obviously wasn’t really a single cask, was it? It came from one cask, but before it was in that one, it was in another cask. I’ve heard, but am not sure 100% about it, that the SWA is … Continue reading

Glenugie 30, 1980-2011, ‘Deoch an Doras’, 52.13%

There are several translations for ‘Deoch an Doras’. What is seems to boil down to is ‘a farewell drink’, sort of like ‘one for the road’. Interestingly, this wasn’t Glenugie’s farewell drink, since 7 years later another bottling was released … Continue reading

Fettercairn 16, Oloroso & Palo Cortado cask, 46.4%

Fettercairn is one of those whiskies that doesn’t have a large fanbase. With an average Whiskybase rating of under 85, that’s not too surprising, since that means that there’s enough low scoring whiskies in the mix to counter all those … Continue reading

Ardnamurchan AD/04:21, Paul Launois Release, 57.6%

With me trying to get my bearing and reshuffling priorities between working in an actual office, and not spending a coffee break writing a blog post, being back from a short trip to Scotland and spending some evenings with the … Continue reading

Clynelish 15, 1992-2008, Bourbon Hogshead, 56.4% – Cadenhead Authentic Collection

To say that Clynelish can do no wrong in my book is a bit of a stretch, but I am a bit of a fan of the distillery’s output. In my book that makes the balance swing both ways. When … Continue reading

Tomatin 12, 2006-2019, Oloroso cask 2842, 58.5% – Distillery Exclusive

My friend Tom, who goes by Tomatin on any media that is whisky focused, did a wee bottle share of this a while ago. A Tomatin that worked really well for him up to a level that he wants a … Continue reading

Blended Scotch Whisky 42, 1976-2019, Oloroso Finish, 46.2% – The Maltman

This Blended Scotch Whisky consists of Ben Nevis, Clynelish, Teaninich, Macduff, Dailuaine and Invergordon. Not the least interesting names in the business! Also, while this states having had an Oloroso finish, what didn’t really fit the title, is that that … Continue reading

Clynelish 23, 1995-2019, Refill Sherry Butt 11252, 55.4% – Signatory for The Whisky Exchange

While initially it seemed like 1997 was going to be one of ‘those’ vintages for Clynelish, by now it seems to have been surpassed by 1995. Especially by Signatory bottlings, to be a little bit more precise. A while ago … Continue reading

Deanston 10, 2011-2021, Refill Oloroso Cask 266C, 57.5% – The Single Cask for WTF Utrecht

The guys from The Single Cask seem to be on their way to becoming a bigger and bigger bottler. In The Netherlands they’re still a bit rare, but with their presence at Maltstock and a slowly increasing number of retailers, … Continue reading
