Speyside Distillery, 1997-2018, Bourbon Hogshead, 47.8% – Malts of Scotland

Speyside as a distillery is generally a fairly nondescript thing. It exists, but you don’t see it all that often, and since it is also a region, I generally have to look thrice to actually remember whether it is an … Continue reading

Caperdonich 17 ‘Dunes An Oir’, 1996-2013, Bourbon Hogshead 13025, 58.6% – Malts of Scotland for Van Zuylen

While this just might be the last bottle of ‘Caper’, it unfortunately is not one of the legendary 1972 vintages. For quite a long time the nineties bottlings of Caperdonicht weren’t overly popular, but with popularity soaring and stocks dwindling, … Continue reading

Images of Mull, Glengorm Castle, 53.2% – Malts of Scotland

Generally, the ‘Images of …’ series leaves something to be guessed. Mostly whisky distillery it is, but also, sometimes which typo they’re going to make this time. In the case of ‘Images of Mull’, the guessing is down to whether … Continue reading

Heaven Hill 2005-2015, Bourbon Barrel MoS15042, 52.1% – Malts of Scotland

I always thing it’s funny when a brand like ‘Malts of Scotland’ releases a whisky that’s neither a malt, nor from Scotland. Of course, with all the Irish stuff and American releases that are coming out from bottlers, this happens … Continue reading

Bruichladdich 2003-2017, 14yo, Bourbon Barrel MoS 17015, 56.8% – Malts of Scotland

I’m not alone in this, although there are many who aren’t exactly agreeing with me too. I generally really love Bruichladdich with a bit of age, from a bourbon cask. I know I can count on a lot of nodding … Continue reading

Glen Morey 1977-2012, Bourbon Hogshead MoS 12021, 52.1% – Malts of Scotland

Yes, Glen Morey. At least, that’s according to the label. Malts of Scotland is famous for two things in my book: great whisky and typos on labels. “Images of Bartstown”, anyone? Anyway, this 1977 Glen Moray was bottled almost a … Continue reading

Bruichladdich 16, 2003-2020, 51.7% – Malts of Scotland

Over the years I have developed a soft spot for Bruichladdich. Especially ‘normal’ Bruichladdich. Normal Bruichladdich without the heaps of peat from Octomore and, to a lesser extent, Port Charlotte. Normal Bruichladdich without the exponential amount of weird casks used … Continue reading

Glengoyne 1972-2015, 45.2% – Malts of Scotland Diamonds

When you happen to find something like this in the back of your cupboard, your heart skips a beat. There was so much awesome whisky in the seventies, that has now gotten so expensive that it’s a true rarity for … Continue reading

Springbank 2004-2015, 51.9% – Malts of Scotland

It is no secret that I love Springbank. It more or less embodies everything I like so much about the world of whisky. They are a small company that works on a rather local scale without much happening outside of … Continue reading

Heaven Hill 2001-2015, Sherry Hogshead, 48.9% – Malts of Scotland

Apart from the fact that this is neither a malt, nor from Scotland, it’s still a pretty interesting twist on things. A pretty well matured Bourbon (at least 13 years old, but matured in a sherry hogshead! That is something … Continue reading
