Glenburgie 27, 1995-2022, Hogshead 6668, 57.7% – Signatory Vintage for Wu Dram Clan

The last of the three bottlings for Wu Dram Clan’s third anniversary. I wonder whether they picked three because there’s three of them, or because they’re three years old. If it’s the latter, we’re in for some interesting follow up … Continue reading

Caperdonich 22, 2000-2022, Hogshead 29490, 55.2% – Signatory Vintage for Wu Dram Clan

I looked through my tasting notes but I doubt I can do a ‘Closed Distilleries’ theme week now. I guess it will be Speyside then! That’s an easy one with half the Scottish distilleries being there. This bottling was recently … Continue reading

Caol Ila 32, 1990-2022, Refill American Hogshead, 51.5% – Cask of Distinction

Sometimes people go ballistic when it comes to bottling luxurious hooch. In this case we should point the blame at Wu Dram Clan, but not only them. Bram and Floris of The Whisky Nerds are guilty of this one too, … Continue reading

Unnamed Islay 30, 1991-2022, Bourbon Barrel 2674, 51.4% – Signatory Vintage for Wu Dram Clan

To celebrate their third anniversary, Wu Dram Clan released three very different whiskies. A Caperdonich, a Glenburgie and an Unnamed Islay. The Islay one is reviewed today, the other two will follow shortly, but with a week of Islay whiskies … 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

Lagavulin 30, 1991-2022, PX/Oloroso seasoned oak, 44.3% – OB ‘Casks of Distinction’

Apart from some cask samples at the Warehouse Tasting at the distillery, I don’t think I ever had a Lagavulin this old. In fact, I know that for sure. Of course, that’s not too surprising with there only being six … 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

Vallein Tercinier 1975-2021, 51.7% – Grapediggaz

With Wu Dram Clan and Kirsch Import getting a bit of an increasing focus on Cognac, it’s not too surprising there’s a separate brand for these bottlings. And, with Grapediggaz being that brand, they’ve chosen a rather epic name, if … 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

The best of 2021

Apart from looking back, using hindsight to evaluate what happened on a more generic level, there was of course a lot of booze last year. In The Netherlands bottle-shops are in the same legal category as supermarkets and other foodstuff … Continue reading
