With the Thompson Brothers opening up a bottle shop in Dornoch, I am really hoping things pan out and I am able to visit the place at the end of October. A small trip to that part of Scotland is … Continue reading

Secret Orkney 16, 2006-2022, Bourbon Hogshead, 48.2% – Wu Dram Clan

I am very bad at reading things in time. Or reviewing things in time, but that’s another discussion. I knew this bottle was coming out due to the Wu Dram Clan making some noise about it on Social Media. Of … Continue reading

Wardhead 21, 1997-2018, 54.6% – Càrn Mòr

Which distillery is this, this Wardhead? Well, as most whisky nerds know by now, there are some code names for distilleries that don’t want their name used on labels. Westport is Glenmorangie, Burnside is Balvenie, ‘Secret Orkney’ is Highland Park, … Continue reading

Eye Land Pork 21, 1998-2019, Refill Hogshead, 48.3% – The Whisky Jury

Another one of those recent bottlers that keeps being ridiculously popular. So much so that when it becoems available in The Netherlands it’s through those more ‘exclusive’ websites that keep the middle ground between retailers and secondary market. The looks … Continue reading

Secret Islay 10, 2011-2021, Port Barrique, 53.3% – Michiel Wigman ‘East meets West’

As it turns out, this is not the first Secret Islay I review this week. It is not even the first Secret Islay at exactly 53.3% ABV I review this week! Not that I review that much, but merely a … Continue reading

A Secret Islay Distillery 8yo, 2013-2021, PX Hogshead, 53.3% – Wu Dram Clan

The new year has only just begun (although a sixth has already passed) and Wu Dram Clan is on a roll again. Two grain whiskies and two single malts, the latter two from Islay. I decided to get a bottle … Continue reading

The best of 2021, part deux

Apart from last week’s post on what whiskies were strictly the best according to my rating, there are two lists that I still want to get out there. The first is the ‘not best but very impressive otherwise’ whiskies, and … Continue reading

Finest Jamaican Rum, Over 25 Years Old, 50.1% – Wu Dram Clan

I guess the ‘expensive rum bug’ has bitten me too. After Michiel Wigman’s Precious Moments, which I still need to review, there’s this oldie. From an undisclosed distillery on/in Jamaica, to the Wu Dram Clan. On their Facebook page there’s … Continue reading

Secret Highland Distillery 34, 1985-2019, Hogshead, 47% – The Whisky Agency

A few years ago when a whisky was from an undisclosed distillery, that generally meant the bottle was a bit cheaper than its named counterparts. That is far less true now, since people have come to realize that the whisky … Continue reading

A Tennessee Distillery 13, 2003-2017, 50.7% – The Whisky Agency

And now a complete rarity. An undisclosed Tennessee whiskey isn’t too rare, of course, but one bottled by The Whisky Agency, at a decent age, for the Taiwanese market is. I got a sample of this from Whiskay.com and had … Continue reading
