#112 Clynelish 14 Year Old – One of the best entry level highland malts

Review #112 – Clynelish 14 Year old 84/100 The original Clynelish distillery was founded in 1819 and produced lightly peated highland whisky up until 1967 when the distillery closed due to the construction of a new Clynelish distillery over the road.  The original Clynelish distillery did reopen in 1969 and produced a heavily peated whisky,… Continue reading #112 Clynelish 14 Year Old – One of the best entry level highland malts

#111 Wolfburn First Release – Scotland’s most northern mainland distillery and an outstanding NAS whisky

Review #111 – Wolfburn First Release 88/100 To be honest, I hadn’t really looked forward to sampling Wolfburn whiskies, I’d seen them around in a few bars and I know they have had some pretty sweet reviews, but when the first releases went on offer they disappeared and as expected ended up on the auction… Continue reading #111 Wolfburn First Release – Scotland’s most northern mainland distillery and an outstanding NAS whisky

#106 Edradour Sherry Cask – Single Cask 361 From Signatory

This excellent single cask from Signatory has been bottled at 46%ABV and it’s spent its full 10 years in a Sherry butt.  I am not sure if this has come from a first fill cask or a refill cask but if I had to put my money on it I’d go with first fill.  This… Continue reading #106 Edradour Sherry Cask – Single Cask 361 From Signatory

#40 Glenmorangie Lasanta 12 Year Old – The Lord Giveth With One Hand…

Review #40 – Glenmorangie 12YO Lasanta 80/100 I sat with this one for a good while, asking myself over and over what did I prefer…this or the original 10YO?  It’s a difficult decision to make really, as the two whiskies have the same base flavour profile. The Lasanta brings something new into the mix, but… Continue reading #40 Glenmorangie Lasanta 12 Year Old – The Lord Giveth With One Hand…

#38 Glengoyne 10 Year Old – A Creamy, Savoury Tipple From the Highlands

Review #38 – Glengoyne 10YO 74/100 It’s taken me quite a while to give Glengoyne a go, and for no particular reason, other than that it just seems to have stayed off my radar, so I decided to pick up a small 5cl bottle just to give it a try. Deep gold in colour, medium… Continue reading #38 Glengoyne 10 Year Old – A Creamy, Savoury Tipple From the Highlands

#37 Glenmorangie 10 Year Old – My Delicate Daily Dram

Review #37 – Glenmorangie 10YO 84/100 Quick review here as I know the ins and outs of this whisky as it’s one my long-standing favourites and one of my go to daily drams. Out of the bottle and into the glass, the Glenmorangie 10YO pours a light honey colour, is medium bodied and laces the… Continue reading #37 Glenmorangie 10 Year Old – My Delicate Daily Dram

#34 Glenmorangie Nectar D’or – One of the Finer Whiskies That Tends to Stay in the Shadows

Review #34 – Glenmorangie Nectar D’Or 86/100 How glad I was to find a little bottle of this literal nectar nestled in at the back of my whisky shelf.  This is a whisky I haven’t had in quite a while, it’s very rarely seen in bars or shops in my neck of the woods, which… Continue reading #34 Glenmorangie Nectar D’or – One of the Finer Whiskies That Tends to Stay in the Shadows
