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

Two young Caol Ilas from 2007

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

Before let’s say, 2014 or so, Imperial wasn’t on many people’s radar. They were a closed distillery but not one that had gotten a cult status, unlike Rosebank for example. For me that changed during the Blind Tasting Competition on … Continue reading

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

Glenburgie 1983-2012, 28yo, 54.3% – Signatory Cask Strength for The Nectar

Another wee bottle share I did a little while ago. There are a couple of groups on Facebook in which you can sell your own bottles and this one popped up in there a little while ago. I decided to … Continue reading

Glenglassaugh 1976-2004, 27yo, 46.8% – Signatory Vintage

Glenglassaugh is a distillery in an area that has seen many closings, technically. The eastern highlands still have some distilleries open, but there’s a lot of them that have shut down over the years. One of the most prominent ones … Continue reading

Photo bombing: The Usquebaugh Society’s 25th Anniversary party

I generally only take pictures of the drams I’m having, and yesterday afternoon was no exception. The pictures and impressions of the event itself are on Facebook in a lot of different posts by a lot of different people. Here’s … Continue reading
