Irish Single Malt, 1988-2015, 26yo, 50.7% – The Perfect Dram

The Perfect Dram is a quite presumptiously named brand from The Whisky Agency. The experience is that it’s not necessarily untrue since they use some of their best casks, and The Whisky Agency itself is already a cracking bottler. This … Continue reading

Tamnavulin 1967-2010, 43yo, 41% – The Whisky Agency

A properly ancient whisky that I picked up for a bottle-share. Which, somehow, never filled up, so I had to drink it myself. Bummer. It seems that most bottle-shares I do with those pricier, older whiskies never fill up. That’s … 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

New bottle shares!

Little over a month ago I wrote about still available bottle shares. I’m glad to find that most of those have all gone by now. I do have some new ones available though. Not as many, but a bit more … Continue reading

BenRiach 1985-2010, 25yo, 48.1% – Liquid Sun for Japan

Back in 2010, when I bought this bottle I wasn’t entirely sure about my purchase when I finally got it in. A random BenRiach from a random bottler, from a random cask. Should I have done this? I kept doubting … Continue reading

Irish Single Malt Whiskey, 1988-2015, 26yo, 46.3% – The Whisky Agency for Taiwan

For the last two years old Irish whiskeys have been making name for themselves. They more or less came out of nowhere, and I think the first major release was done by Adelphi with their Limerick whiskey. Since then all … Continue reading

Bunnahabhain 1987-2015, 28yo, 55% – The Whisky Agency

In 2014 during the Blog Birthday Bash, Teun was kind enough to bring a bottle of 1987 Bunnahabhain. That was one of the more popular drams of the evening and my first encounter with what turns out to be a … Continue reading

Blind Tasting Competition Day 4: Ben Nevis 18, 1995-2013, 51.8% – The Whisky Agency

After yesterday’s disappointing zero-pointer I had to put in another semi-random guess. I waited with today’s distillery selection until after the results, but since I tasted the whisky on Monday I wasn’t overly sharp on specifics anymore. Apparently, I wasn’t … Continue reading

Glendullan 1981-2009, 28yo, 49.6% – The Whisky Agency

Here’s just a quick review before all hell breaks loose in December. With what’s coming in regards of sheer sample volume that has to be tasted, I’m starting to see the benefits of a sober January. I also know that … Continue reading

Blog Birthday Bash #4

Last Saturday was the day of this wee blog’s fourth birthday party. Not the actual 4th birthday but due to pregnancy and the lack of planning thereof we pulled that forward a little bit. As said in the announcement post … Continue reading
