Glen Mhor 1963, 25 years old, 40% – Sestante

I only got this sample of ‘Fine Old Highland Malt’ yesterday from whisky buddy BvdP. He told me to taste the whisky before looking up what it was, and on the label it only had the Whiskybase ID of the … Continue reading

Ardmore 2013-2018, 4yo, 57.2% – Cadenhead’s Warehouse Tasting

Last April I finally participated in a Cadenhead’s Warehouse Tasting. These tastings are legendary among whisky lovers and somehow I had never done one, until three months ago that is. You might have read my shameful post about accidentally blending … Continue reading

Two Clynelishes from the mid-nineties

Ah, Clynelish. Another one of these Diageo distilleries that doesn’t release a lot under their own name (except for the great 14 year old and Distiller’s Edition). Of course, there is the occasional Select Reserve from 2014 and 2015, but … Continue reading

Clynelish 10yo, 2003-2014, 60.5% – SMWS (26.98, Lively as an Electric Acrobat)

I have absolutely no idea what they mean with a name like “Lively as an Electric Acrobat” or how the SMWS thinks that works for marketing purposes. Then again, they are a members-only club which means they don’t have to … Continue reading

Old Pulteney 10, 1990-2001, 57.8% – Hart Brothers

Halfway through January I went to De Whiskykoning’s Bottoms Up tasting. He put out all open bottles that got too low to use in a tasting and we were allowed to randomly pick a number of drams for tasting. I … Continue reading
