Arran 2000 Private Cask #1106 TWE Exclusive

We continue reviewing the latest batch of The whisky Exchange exclusive single casks, with this Arran 2000, which was aged for 14 years in ex-bourbon and bottled at a cask strength of 55.5% ABV. Priced at about 70 quid, it offers a good value IMHO, and is a very good example of classic ex-bourbon maturation, with a nice balance of …

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 …

More Signatory Goodness : Laphroaig 1998 / 16yo / Signatory cask #700389 – Exclusive for TWE

Time to end the week with another Indie bottling by Signatory sold exclusively on the Whisky Exchange  : and this time  a sherried Laphroaig.  Sherried Laphs are really good fun, and I doubt someone will be able to say they ever had a really bad sherry cask Laphroaig. At least for me Sherry and Laphraoig do work well together almost …

Glen Keith 1970 (Malts of Scotland), Rel 2011.

Another older samples from an Epic bottle share by Sjoerd I’ve held back tasting quite a lot of time for some reason. I‘ve not had a lot of Glen Keith, but those I’ve had were rather nice, and this 1970 edition seems to have gotten good reviews. at the time it used to cost a bit under 200 EUR, with …

Glenglassaugh  – Rare Cask Release Batch 1- vintage 1968 & 1973

A while back I received quite a few samples of old and rare GG’s from the rare cask release batch 1.  It’s not everyday you get to taste stuff like that from the late 60s and early 70s and I suspect most of those bottles are not going to even get opened, and mainly used as a tool for  “investment”. …

A trio of Balblair 2000 single casks–#Millennium tasting

Last night Bablair held a very special twitter tasting, in which 3 very different single cask Balblairs (cask samples, nothing commercial – yet) were on the table. This tasting was kind of special since it was done partly on site ( a few lucky bloggers on a trip to the Inverhouse distilleries) and the rest of us from the comfort …

Yoichi Single Cask #129493 , 1991-2007

Quite a few months back I received a few samples from Sjoerd (bottle share of the legendary Karuizawa, and a couple of others as a Bonus). This one sat and waited patiently and it’s finally time to review this baby. From what I remembered it’s a good one (So I was told by  Sjoerd, and he’s usually right!).

Kilchoman for Whisky In Leiden 2014 Cask 142/2007

There are quite a few private cask bottlings by Kilchoman, but I think this has to be the oldest one I’ve tried (7 yo or so). First tasted it last week with friends, and took a sample home to ‘research’ it further, with a clean palate, and fewer drams that precede it… 245 such bottles exist, and they are still …
