Some goodies from Springbank

Springbank has long been one of my favorite (if not the favorite) distilleries in Scotland. I really liked them early on in my ‘whisky journey’, but especially since I visited the place in 2010 with my wife, I’ve been hooked. … Continue reading

Port Charlotte, 13yo, 2001-2015, Fresh Oloroso cask, 61.6% – Private Cask for Aart Appeldoorn

It’s been a while since I tried a Port Charlotte. It also seems the private casks and indie bottlings have gotten fewer in the last couple of ¬†years (maybe since Remy Cointreau took over?), but I got this sample from … Continue reading

Kilchoman 2010-2015, 4yo, PX finish, 58.3% – OB for The Whisky Exchange

GlenDronach 1995-2015, 19yo, 54.2% – OB for Whiskybase

How is it, that without any indication a market can get fed up with a certain brand of whisky? I think that’s more or less what’s happening with mid-nineties (and younger) GlenDronach. Every year the distillery releases about two batches … Continue reading

Arran 19, 1996-2016, 54.7% – OB for Whiskysite.nl

The Dutch like Arran. Or more apt, the mainland of north-western Europe likes Arran. Over the last couple of years there have been loads of single casks for just about every festival and shop that’s in the business of doing … Continue reading
