Loch Lomond 13, 2005-2018, 50% – Whiskybroker

This heavily peated Loch Lomond was bottled by Whiskybroker.co.uk in 2018, and if it was an official bottling this would have been called Croftengea, Inchmoan or Inchfad, since that’s how they brand their heavily peated whiskies normally. Because this is … Continue reading

Glenrothes 1997-2016, 53.5% – WhiskyBroker (for Van Zuylen)

The Van Zuylen bit is between brackets in the title since this whisky came out as a shop bottling for Van Zuylen AND a regular bottling from WhiskyBroker. It seems they split the cask since it’s the same cask number … Continue reading

BTC #1: Benrinnes 1997-2016, 50% – Whiskybroker

So, another December, another Blind Tasting Competition. Based on previous editions, I’m going in without hope of a decent finish. I know I suck at this kind of thing, this blind tasting of whisky. It’s not how I drink whisky, … Continue reading

Springbank 1998-2013, 14 years old, 54.3% – Whiskybroker.co.uk

Another bottler that somehow is not on my radar. Which is a silly thing since most of what Martin Armstrong (the son of the former Bladnoch distillery owner)┬áreleases is at least decent in quality, and the bottles are quite cheap, … Continue reading

Inchgower 1982, 29yo, 53.9% – Whiskybroker.co.uk

Sometimes I find a whisky with a certain profile that I find very hard to define, but oh so delicious. It happened with an Inchgower 1982 from Duncan Taylor.┬áIt also happened with a 1982 Clynelish I had during the BTC … Continue reading

Caol Ila 27, 1983-2011, 53.1% – Whiskybroker.co.uk

This is one of those samples of which I had totally forgotten it existed. Recently when we moved some furniture around I had to shift some boxes and decided to go through a bunch of samples. This is one of … Continue reading

Usquebaugh Society Regional Tasting Noord-Holland – January 2015

Every couple of months someone in the province of Noord-Holland organises the regional tasting for the Usquebaugh Society. They do this too in other areas of the country but not in the same way, where it is at someone’s home. … Continue reading

Bunnahabhain 1990, 21yo, Jubilee Malt 2, The Whisky Barrel, 54.5%

It took me a while to find specs on this bottle online, since it’s apparently a release by The Whisky Barrel, but bottled by Whiskybroker.co.uk. Rather strange. Another strange fact is that the name of the distillery is widely known … Continue reading

Blind Tasting Competition 14 – Teaninich 29yo, 1982-2012, 52.2% – Dewar Rattray

I should make some rectifications to what I said yesterday about the competition not being fun anymore. I discussed it with Ewald, who organizes most of it and came to the conclusion that it’s just the competing part that I … Continue reading
