The best of 2021, part deux

Loch Lomond 10, 2010-2020, Bourbon Barrel 349, 57.7% – OB for The Whisky Exchange

Yet another iteration of ‘I shamefully admit having lost this sample somewhere in the cupboard’, until recently of course. With this being released in 2020, I suspect this came in during the construction work being done on our house last … Continue reading

Benromach 8, 2011-2019, 1st Fill Sherry Hogshead 400, 59.1% – OB for The Whisky Exchange

Another single cask from Benromach distillery! Don’t mind if I do! And while I say that, let me also tell you that I tried this one blind. It was another sample I got from BvdP, and I tried it right … Continue reading

Springbank 24, 51.7% – Elixir, Art of Whisky

Another sample I got from Fiddler’s Advent Calendar, late last year. And one I got quite excited about. It’s not everyday you get to try new, old Springbank. 24 years old is something that goes for quite a bit of … Continue reading

Ardmore 19, 1992-2011, Bourbon cask 9464, 49.3% – Single Malts of Scotland

Yup, another Ardmore. I love it. The fact that it’s a peated whisky that tastes different than the most famous peated whiskies from Islay, and that they don’t push the peat to the brink of the ashtray sits very well … Continue reading

Black Friday 2020, 50.5% – The Whisky Exchange

It’s pretty incredible how quickly traditions form. This is only the fourth year for The Whisky Exchange to be releasing their Black Friday whisky. Yet, I somehow knew it was coming, even in a year like this. What did surprise … Continue reading

Elements of Islay Peat & Sherry, 56.8%

For the 20th anniversary of The Whisky Exchange a few bottlings have been released so far. I rather vividly remember some of their releases for the tenth anniversary. Back then I did a bottle-share with that Clynelish 37, Hakushu 20 … Continue reading

Inchmoan 2007, 12yo, 54.9% – OB for The Whisky Exchange

Yet another, but for now the last, sample from a The Whisky Exchange exclusive bottling. In this case it’s an Inchmoan whisky. Inchmoan is one of the brands of Loch Lomond Distillery, in this case the heavily peated version of … Continue reading
