Balblair 1996-2018, 54.4% – OB for La Maison du Whisky

I love Balblair. I liked them before, but ever since I visited them in 2013, I really loved them. However, I somehow barely ever buy a bottle. Some, but not a lot. Which I tried to remedy a little bit … Continue reading

Glentauchers 30yo, 1981, 55.8%, La Maison du Whisky

A 30 year old single cask Glentauchers, who’d have thought! As Gal said on his review of this whisky yesterday, I haven’t had many Glentauchers. A few more than him, mostly because our club bottled a rather filthy one two … Continue reading

Caol Ila 27yo, 1984, 56.1% – Signatory for LMDW

About two weeks ago I got a package in the mail with whisky samples from Israel. Not Israeli whisky, since that doesn’t exist yet, but random samples. It was sent to me by Shai Applbaum, a recently ‘acquired’ Facebook and … Continue reading
