Two OB new Single Grains–Port Dundas 12 & 18  -Review

The single grain sector is indeed gaining popularity, and although I did not plan it, this is becoming a grain centric week here on the blog. Recently Diageo has launched a new line of single grain whisky from the now closed distillery of Port Dundas.  Based in Glasgow, the historic distillery closed in 2010 as Diageo moved the majority of …

This cask was bottled by Hunter Laing, for their Sovereign line of Single Grain whiskies. Strathclyde Distillery stands on the south bank of the River Clyde in the Gorbals district of Glasgow, and was built by the long …

Cambus Sovereign 1964 50 yo single grain – Review

Older Grains are among my favourite drams recently (If I can get them), and usually you can get awesome very old grain (30 and older) for much cheaper than you would have to pay for a similarly aged single malt. This however is not the cheapest of them, at 420 quid, this is quite an expensive grain, but hey 50 …

Wemyss Malts Single Grain ‘Caribbean Crème’ , Invergordon 1988

This week is going to feature quite a bit of new releases, and the next one I am reviewing is one of Wemyss Malt’s new batch of single cask (a couple will be reviewed), and what a better way to start, than with a single grain. I am quite fond of older grains as you well know, and this one …

Berry’s Own North of Scotland 1973 cask #14570 [single grain]

Quite a long time ago I was about to participate in a twitter tasting for BBR’s indie bottling (BBR being a very famous wine merchant from London, doing single cask bottling, and the current owner of the Glenrothes distillery – if you needed any introduction, probably not..) . I am not sure what happened, but probably samples arrived late, compliments …

Haig Club Single Grain – Review

There has been a lot of talk about this specific bottle, after Diageo has chosen David Beckham to endorse this whisky and be it’s presentor. Yes, it does look like an aftershave doesn’t it?
And yes, it’s supposedly very young grain whisky sold for a lot of money. All is true.Yes. I was not expecting it to appeal to whisky …

Wemyss Malts  – ‘Lemon Cheesecake’ 1988 Invergordon (single grain)

Time to start a series of reviews for the latest batch of single casks from Wemyss Malts. Correct me if I am wrong, but this seems to be the first single grain bottling from Wemyss who usually do single cask malts. Very nice. Grain (and certainly older grain) can be lovely, and they deserve a place among the whisky shelves …

Teeling  Single Grain Whiskey

After tasting the aged offerings from Teeling whiskey (namely the 21, 26 and 30), it’s time to get more realistic, and try the more affordable releases. Surely, not many can afford the more expensive stuff, but surely the two younger offerings are budget friendly drams. the first of the two I am going to visit is the single Grain. Grain …

SMWS G1.8 – ‘A bag of assorted boiled sweets’ Single Grain

It’s been some time since i posted notes for a SMWS bottling. I have quite a few i should be tasting (arranged samples from latest outruns with the help of #whiskyfabric). This one however was a sample swap I did with Johanne (@whiskylassie) who’s now touring Scotland and is having some fun (so it seems). I normally associate single grain …
