About two weeks ago the newest WhiskyNerds release came out. This time they opted for an Old Rhosdhu from 1990. Old Rhosdhu is one of the older brands of Loch Lomond Distillery. So, in a way this is not a … Continue reading

Allt-a-Bhainne 23yo, 1997-2020, Barrel 102589, 52.4% – WhiskyNerds

Just like yesterday’s post, this one came in a while ago but I wanted it to give it the respect, attention and nasal capacity it deserves. I find it a bold move by Bram and Floris to release an Allt-a-Bhainne. … Continue reading

Ledaig 1995-2020, 24yo, 46.4% – WhiskyNerds

It seems that a lot of bottlers are getting their hands on casks of Ledaig lately. And contrary to what was happening almost a decade ago, these casks aren’t shit. There were great ones by The Whisky Kingdom/Duckhammers and The … Continue reading

Secret Highland 1983, 35yo, 48.2% – WhiskyNerds

This second cask of the Secret Highland whiskies from the WhiskyNerds is a joint bottling with Liquid Art from Belgium. It’s a tad older than the other one, but it’s also from a much less sherry focused cask. As with … Continue reading

Secret Highland 1987, 31yo, 49.6% – WhiskyNerds

The previous WhiskyNerds bottling was a cracking Caol Ila with a significant price tag. While the whisky was awesome, people had trouble shelling out like that, and I’ve seen the bottles discounted over the last year. The strange thing of … Continue reading

Caol Ila 1990, 28yo, 48% – The Whisky Nerds

I always get a little excited when a new Whisky Nerds bottling is announced. So far, all they’ve bottled is about the best you can spend you booze-allocated-money on. The Lagavulin was a bit of an exception, since it was … Continue reading

Springbank 23, 1995-2018, 48% – WhiskyNerds
