A flock of Inchmurrin

After some posts of Islay whiskies, we’re moving a little bit east to Loch Lomond. This truly stunning are is home to a large but largely unknown distillery of the same name. Most of it’s fame (if you can call … Continue reading

Craigduff 1973-2005, 32yo, 53.9%- Signatory

Craigduff is a bit of a weird one. There is no such distillery and calling it a proper ‘brand’ is a stretch of the imagination too. It’s a peated Speyside whisky from Chivas Brothers, but I find sources stating it … Continue reading

Since the theme of the first bit of 2017 is to get through a boat load of samples, here’s two in one go. Both are from Caol Ila distillery on the eastern shore of Islay, and both are from 2007. … Continue reading

Mortlach 1998-2016, 18yo, 55.8% – Signatory for The Whisky Exchange

EDIT: I made a booboo on the title. I initially had this up as being distilled in 1988. It is, however, a decade younger than that, from 1998. Mortlach has been gaining popularity and fame since Diageo revamped the packaging … Continue reading

Imperial 1995-2016, 20yo, 50.1% – Signatory for The Whisky Exchange

The sixth annual Blog Birthday Bash

This here blog has been around for six years already. The actual date was August third, but that passed rather eventless. However, last Saturday was the annual barbecue-and-booze celebration. I made the fairly predictable huge hunks of pork again, although … Continue reading

Coleburn 1983-1998, 15yo, 43% – Signatory Vintage

Coleburn is one of those obscure Speyside distilleries that hasn’t gotten very popular even though it’s closed and every bottle from the place is limited. That has worked for almost all other distilleries, but this one. So, when I got … Continue reading
