Kilchoman 2010 single cask TWE exclusive cask 679

for those who enjoy peated whiskies, TWE included two peated malts in their latest line of Exclusive single cask bottlings, the first is this 4-year-old Kilchoman, and the other is English whisky peated. I’ve long been a Kilchoman fan (though I am not doing a lot of peat these days – this might change as temperatures are dropping even here) …

BenRiach 1998 17 Year Old PX Finish TWE Exclusive (Cask 7758)

After the lovely Glendronach exclusive I’ve reviewed yesterday, comes the bottle from the “sister” distillery of BenRiach (they we released together), this one is 17 years old, a Tripe distilled whisky  and was only finished in PX, rather than aged in it for the entire length of maturation. Actually I’ve bought a bottle if this one (even before I tasted …

Glendronach 1995 19 Year Old PX Puncheon TWE Exclusive – Review

MaltStock is over, and I am settling down (a separate post about that soon). As always I was very happy to meet so many nice people, share a few drams, and on the way collect a few samples people were kind enough to bestow upon me. Billy from the TWE was kind to share samples of the exclusive bottling for …

The Bomb – Pedro Ximénez Cask Finish (The Whisky Lounge)

About two years ago I tasted the Oloroso finish version of this bomb, and quite liked it. I was happy with a 20cl bottles, but when I got the bottle, I noticed that I’ve ordered the wrong version, and that there’s another PX finish version I was not aware of. I never bothered replacing it, hoping the PX would be …

Glendronach 1994  Cask #3400 – Abbey Whisky – Review

Another big sherry whisky today after yesterday’s Glenlivet, and this time from Glendronach and Abbey Whisky.
Abbey whisky does bottle some cracking stuff, and the last time I tasted a Glenronach they chose to bottle , the GlenDronach 1993 cask #33, It was good stuff (notes here). Apparently it was a big success and they were searciing to bottle a new …

Abbey Whisky Kilchoman 5 yo single Cask #285/09

It’s always fun getting a sample of a Kilchoman single cask by surprise. That’s exactly what happened last week, when a wee samples arrived courtesy of the famous whisky fairy. I was not aware of this new cask bottle for Abbey whisky, and later that day sat to explore it. The “dry” facts say it’s 5 years old , distilled …

Darkness! Macallan 15 Year Old Pedro Ximénez Cask Finish

Continuing the very interesting line of Sherry cask finished single malts from Master of Malt (Maverick Drinks). This time they took a 15 year old Macallan and finished it in 50 litre first-fill Pedro Ximénez casks for an additional 3 months. What happened?  Good things did happen, i assure you.

Darkness! Ardbeg 21 Year Old Pedro Ximénez Cask Finish

Question: What’s the shortest time span known to mankind?
Answer: It’s the time it takes a single cask Ardbeg to sell out on any Whisky merchant’s website… This one was not different, and I guess it sold out in minutes. But luckily I still got a sample of that lovely stuff to try, so here goes, and don’t bang …

Glendronach 1985 Cask # 1035 PX Puncheon 27 yo

This is the first cask I am tasting from Batch #9 of single casks released last December (full story here). No reason why I started with the 1985 but I had a feeling this is going to be a good one, and boy was I right (not that there are any bad GD single casks).  Distilled 13/12/85 bottled at 53.7% …

Two Young(er) Glendronach single casks from batch 8

Batch 8 of Glendronach has been released with batch 10 of BenRiach (Its sister distillery) a short while ago. I chose to start with the BRs then enter Glendronach sherry land, and here we are. GlenDronach indeed is synonymous with sherry casks, and indeed their entire range is heavily sherried, and very much loved by sherry heads. I chose to …
