Cadenhead’s bottle-share

Towards the end of last October I did yet another ‘last’ bottle share of the year. The last one because I had been stressing my wallet, and everyone else’s in my sharing group. Of course, that wasn’t true and I … Continue reading

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

Benrinnes 1982-2009, 26yo, 57.4% – The Bottlers

Benrinnes is one of those Diageo distilleries that isn’t bottled as a single malt often. Apart from some Flora & Fauna releases and the occassional Premium Edition, you have to turn to independent bottlers. Even those guys don’t have too … Continue reading

Kilchoman 2007-2016, 8yo, Feis Ile 2016, 56.6%

During November’s Winter Whisky Tasting at De Whiskykoning there are bound to be some Feis Ile bottlings. He does try to get some drams in that I don’t already know and while that sounds awfully entitled, I book the entire … Continue reading

Connemara 1992-2006, K92/33 4109, 46%

A few years ago when I was having dinner at Scottish Restaurant Hielander we got an Irish single cask Connemara whiskey with our main course. If I remember correctly it was a grilled duckbreast, but I don’t know anything about … Continue reading

Longrow 21, 46% – OB for the Springbank Open Day 2016

When this one was announced, I got all giddy on the inside. That was slightly lessened by the price of a bottle, but I still was enthusiastic about it. A 21 year old Longrow. There’s only ever been one Longrow … Continue reading

Balblair 2000-2014, 51%, OB for the Russian Federation

Now this is a first! I’ve never had a bottling for Russia before. Of course, that doesn’t change the whisky much, but it’s just a fun fact. Anyway, this heavily sherried Balblair single cask was released two years ago and … Continue reading

Kavalan 8yo, 2006-2015, Peaty Cask, 53.2% – OB for WhiskyNerds

A little while ago, I guess just in early December, Bram and Floris (the WhiskyNerds) announced their second cask. They did a GlenDronach earlier in the year which I (shamefully) have not reviewed yet. I have been enjoying it since … Continue reading

Blind Tasting Competition Day 6: Inchfad 2001-2007, 45% (Loch Lomond)

After yesterday’s disappointing score (zero points, obviously) I was hoping for a bit of points to get away from the bottom of the list again. Well, that didn’t work out at all. Like last year there’s one of those weird … Continue reading

English Whisky Co. Classic, 53.4% – OB for The Whisky Exchange

It’s been a while since I got my hands on a sample of this, and it’s been almost as long since I actually wrote the tasting notes. Somehow, I’m just not getting around to blogging, lately. The coming days in … Continue reading
