Balcones 4, 2017-2021, American Oak Barrel 16993, 63.6% – Archives

It’s not often that a four year old whisky scores richly above 88 points on Whiskybase, but this one does. It’s 28 votes, so not the most in the world, but not insignificant either. This Texas single malt whisky was … Continue reading

Glen Moray 13, 2007-2021, Barrel 5952, 58.8% – Archives

Glen Moray, to me, is pretty much a blank canvas. As in, the spirit is very gentle and sweet and gives a lot of play room for the cask to interact with the spirit. Unfortunately, that also means there are … Continue reading

Highland Malt Whisky 11, 2010-2022, Barrel 2534, 58.1% – Whiskybase Gathering 2022

It is a public secret that this whisky is an 11 year old Clynelish. Not always do you get to know which distillery a ‘secret <enter region here>’ whisky is from, but in this case, Whiskybase didn’t really hide it. … Continue reading

Cooley 20, 2002-2022, Barrel 2215, 57.1% – Whiskybase

For every 10,000 bottles added to Whiskybase, they try to release a single cask whisky. Most of them are very interesting and rather decently priced. This one, bottled for the 200,000th addition, was a bit on the expensive side of … Continue reading

Bruichladdich 12, 2008-2021, Barrel 1710, 59.6% – Archives for the Whiskybase Shop

After last week’s Islay theme, I wanted to do an Archives theme this week. As in, not necessarily Archives, but things from Whiskybase, since they also release stuff under that label. I guess a transition should be done by doing … Continue reading

Teaninich 20, 1999-2019, Hogshead 307938, 55.7% – Archives

Teaninich is one of the work horse distilleries of Diageo, situated in Alness where I happened to reside for a couple of days at the end of October. Didn’t go to the distillery though, since they don’t receive visitors and … Continue reading

Balblair 9, 2012-2021, Bourbon Barrel, 58.7% – Whiskybase

With another 10,000 bottles on the wall, as they call it, at Whiskybase, another bottling had to be released. Of course, by now the 200k bottling has been out as well, as it the 210k one. So yes, another reasonable … Continue reading

Glentauchers 21, 1997-2019, Barrel 3833, 49.3% – Archives for CaskAid

CaskAid is a Belgium NPO that sells independently bottled whisky for charity. That sounds like a good way of raising money to me, and when combined with Archives, we should be in for some good stuff! Archives is the independent … Continue reading

Glentauchers 16, 2006-2022, Refill Bourbon Barrel 703712, 58.6% – Gordon & MacPhail for Whiskybase

The 15th anniversary of Whiskybase is a thing that should be celebrated. Not just from a commercial perspective, but also because I feel like Whiskybase has significantly changed the whisky landscape since its inception a decade and a half ago. … Continue reading

Glen Keith 29, 1992-2021, First Fill Barrel 84255, 48.5% – Archives

Due to knowing some members of the inner circle at Whiskybase, I sometimes have the chance to taste Archives releases that are not meant for The Netherlands. This 29 year old Glen Keith was sent straight to Taiwan to be … Continue reading
