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

Best of Wines’ Blind Tasting Competition #4

The last leg of the Blind Tasting Competition, or maybe the last tripod, since there’s another three reviews below. In this batch there are two bottlings I had before, but only one of them I recognized. That made up for … Continue reading

Ledaig 25, 1995-2021, Hogshead 143, 50.6% – Wu Dram Clan

The flywheel that is the Wu Dram Clan seems to only be gaining speed, or frequency, of their releases. Hot on the heels of the insanely good Ardbeg and Jamaican rum comes this Ledaig 25. The spiritual follow-up to last … Continue reading

Ardbeg 20, 2001-2021, Refill Bourbon Barrel 348, 46.6% – OB for Wu Dram Clan

Right after I reviewed their epic rum, I got an email another sample was making its way to my humble abode. This time, a 20 year old Single Cask Ardbeg, under the original label from the distillery. Knowing the level … Continue reading

Finest Jamaican Rum, Over 25 Years Old, 50.1% – Wu Dram Clan

I guess the ‘expensive rum bug’ has bitten me too. After Michiel Wigman’s Precious Moments, which I still need to review, there’s this oldie. From an undisclosed distillery on/in Jamaica, to the Wu Dram Clan. On their Facebook page there’s … Continue reading

Ben Nevis 24, 1996-2021, Hogshead 1408, 45.6% – Wu Dram Clan

It took some doing and the sample that Wu Dram Clan sent me has now seen more of Europe than I have in the last decade, but eventually it arrived home. Of course, it was a rather highly anticipated whisky, … Continue reading

2 new Caroni, 1997 and 1998, by Wu Dram Clan!

Getting to try Caroni is, by now, the rum equivalent of getting to try a new Port Ellen or Brora, except for the fact that it’s about 10% of the price. So, when Wu Dram Clan offered to send me … Continue reading

Old Rhosdhu 29, 1990-2020, Refill Hogshead 416, 48.2% – WhiskyNerds

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

Vallein Tercinier 53 years old, 1967, 47% – Wu Dram Clan

Again, it seems Wu Dram is forever. Or at least for 53 years now. I’ve never had much Cognac before. I tried some Armagnacs and my father-in-law had me try some Cognac in the past, but I never got into … Continue reading
