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

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

Ballechin 2003, 15yo, 55% – OB for TWE

Yet another The Whisky Exchange exclusive bottling which I review from a sample provided by them. I’ve been given this and another one during Billy’s trip to Maltstock, which I sadly couldn’t visit myself. However, there was time for beers … Continue reading

Speyside 21yo, 53.1% – The Whisky Exchange, Black Friday

As with any industry nowadays, the Whisky industry has fully joined the Black Friday shenanigans that got blown over from the United States. While I’m not a particularly big fan of adopting other country’s festivities for commerce’s sake, I’m all … Continue reading

Linkwood 10, 54.2% – The Whisky Exchange Christmas Malt 2019

I was surprised when I opened the package with this sample in it. The Christmas Malt was announced, but in virtually all other situations you’d be finding a dark, sherry matured whisky. Not so in this case! This 10 year … Continue reading

Bowmore 2000-2014, 54.4% – Signatory Vintage for The Whisky Exchange

I really was happy with all these 2000 Bowmores. It started with a slew of them around 2009 from Berry Brother’s & Rudd. Then, a few years later this one came out, and if I remember correctly there were a … Continue reading
