Arran 18, Sherry casks, bottled 2021, 46%

Even though the distillery isn’t even 30 years old, I think Arran have been on the right track for quite a while. They’re not really doing anything all that different from many of the other distilleries, but they do things … Continue reading

Lagavulin 19, Feis Ile 2019, Sherry Treated American Oak Casks, 53.8%

Another Lagavulin for Feis Ile! I knew I had this on the shelf, and I had carefully sipped from my sample before, but never got around to writing a review yet. A good thing that a holiday came up a … Continue reading

3x Hooghoudt Genevers

I think it was last year that Hooghoudt revamped their entire line of products. An entire series was made available with all kinds of cask maturations and a widely varying age range. Of this range, I got to try three … Continue reading

Springbank 11, 2011-2022, Local Barley, 55.1%

With it being Liberation Day in the Netherlands, I decided to liberate the last of my sample of this from its bottle. I was lucky enough to do a bottle-share with this, after winning a ballot for it at AceDrinks. … Continue reading

Longrow 15, Oloroso Hogsheads, 56.2% – Open Day 2022

I’m glad this one only had a Whiskybase number on the side of the bottle instead of a full label. That would have caused much more anticipation and maybe would have been suggestive in to what to expect. Of course, … Continue reading

Port Ellen 27, 1983-2010, Refill Butt 517, 59% – Signatory Vintage

It’s been a while since I tried a Port Ellen. Not overly surprising with the distillery being closed for 40 years now. And because of that I expect that the frequency will go down further, until it hits the frequency … Continue reading

Longrow 15, 2006-2022, Fresh Sherry Hogshead, 53.8% – The Cage

So, this might need some explanation for those who’ve never been to Campbeltown. In Campbeltown there’s Springbank Distillery and at the distillery they have a visitors center. At the visitors center there’s a cage with some bottles in them. This … Continue reading

Benromach Contrasts: Peat Smoke 2012-2021, First-Fill Sherry Hogsheads, 46%

Benromach Contrasts is a series of whiskies from the awesome Speyside distillery that showcases a specific element of whisky making, which they then have changed from their regular releases. To put things in contrast, so to say. So far there … Continue reading

Hazelburn 21, 2022 release, 46%

Hazelburn has come of age. The oldest version out there seems to be 22 years old by now, but this one, released last year, must have been the oldest back then. I feel like an old fart when I say … Continue reading
