Two Highland Park from 2002

Recently, Highland Park have started to be a lot more prolific in private cask releases. There’s still a slew of ‘Undisclosed Orkney’ going around, but I’m 99% sure that that is all Highland Park too, just without the official label … Continue reading

Springbank 1996-2016, 19yo, cask 106, 54.8% – Archives

The last of the three Springbanks released by Whiskybase / Archives about two weeks ago is the only sherry cask of the bunch. The cask filling date and the bottling date are slightly different but comparable enough. An interesting fact … Continue reading

Springbank 1996-2016, 19yo, cask 550, 56.4% – Archives

This just occurred to me: If I just repost the entire post from yesterday, only a very limited amount of people would notice, and I’d get away with it. Sort of. This ‘second’ cask, to me at least, logically it … Continue reading
