More Old Pulteney–visitng the  21 yo

This is the last OP I am going to review in this brief series of Ops. It has won quite some awards (including being selected as best whisky for 2012 by the notorious Jim Murray) which made it quite popular in recent years. Although I do not see eye to eye with old Jimbo, I must admit this is a …

Laphroaig 21 , OB , 2015 edition (FoL)

Laphraoig released quit a few expressions recently, some of them better some are ok. This one being the oldest Laphraoig I can still  afford (the 32 year old does sound lovely, but it’s up there and I can not even think of buying it at around € 1200).It is a “limited” edition, released to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the …

The New Dalmore 21 year old – Review and thoughts…

As much as I like Dalmore (I do, and I think they are capable of making awesome malt), it is really sad watching how Dalmore becomes a luxury brand with prices as high as they are and the liquid not matching it. What do I mean? take this new release for example , a 21 year old , at 42% …

The Balvenie Tasting event–Tel Aviv  – Tasting the 40 year old and others…

We do not get a lot of visits by whisky brand ambassadors here in Israel: The market is quite small, and we’re not exactly located at the centre of the whisky universe. So, when an ambassador does visit, it’s really a treat to be able to take place in a real whisky event, which are quite scarce in our neck …

The Glenlivet 21 yo

We’re continuing the journey to discover the Glenlivet core range and having left the oldest 21 and 25 un-reviewed ,I am going to fix that pretty soon, starting with the 21 yo. Priced at a hundred quid or so it is not cheap, yet not over expensive if you compare it to other well liked 21 year olds such as …

Strathmill 21 yo (The Maltman)

Strathmill single malt? when have you seen a bottle of that on a whisky shelf recently? Odds are you you have not, since this distillery (owned by Diageo) is not really into selling single malt , but rather distils malt for use in the various Diageo blends, or something of the like. I’ve googled it, and found out it has …

Tomintoul Twitter tasting–#Tom1981

I’m rather ashamed to write that I am almost a Tomintoul virgin, having tasted so little of their line. But as it happens a few weeks ago I saw them twitting about a twitter tasting event featuring the 1981 vintage, and quickly registered on their Facebook page, to participate in the event. A few days later I got an email …

The MaltMan Bowmore  1989 21 yo

Thrilled to feature a brand new Indie bottler today , The Maltman. This label is bottled by the Meadowside blending Co. located in Glasgow. I have to admit this is the first time I’ve tasted their single casks, and find them rather nice. One downside is that all of them are watered down to about 46% rather than CS, which …

Tasting Springbank 21 year old–1990s edition

This dram and those notes are all in honor of a fellow whisky blogger and mensch who recently stopped blogging about this favorite drop of liquor : whisky. I guess those of you who are / were a part of his whisky fabric, know who I am talking about. Whisky connected people all over the globe and I am lucky …
