Digital Dramming #1
Since my hours were reduced at work I, like many people have had alot of time on my hands but with nowhere to go. Luckily the whisky-related options for killing time are numerous. Plenty of YouTube content, live whisky tastings with both distilleries and clubs and Twitter based blind tastings to name but a few. … Continue reading Digital Dramming #1
How much is too much?
Rosebank distillery announced the other day that they are releasing 2 new bottlings of the closed distillery on Friday the 14th of February. 26 years old and at cask strength you can only apply to buy one of the first 100 of these bottlings via ballot. And if you're a winner of said ballot then … Continue reading How much is too much?
Is there that car that you never think you'll ever own or drive? Or maybe a country that you'll think you'll never be able to visit? Or a famous singer you'll never be able to see perform live? Well for me, Rosebank is the single malt that holds that perch in my mind. But before … Continue reading Rosebank
A boat-load of Glenfarclas. . .
I'll not beat around the bush. I love Glenfarclas. I love its flavour profile. I love that it's been in the same family since the dawn of time. I love the dark brown glass bottles they sometimes use. I love that it's affordable. I love that they make their whisky pretty much exactly the same … Continue reading A boat-load of Glenfarclas. . .
The Antiquary 12. Best blend I’d never heard of?
I'll hold my hands up and say that I am a sucker for some cool packaging and a cool bottle. At the right price admittedly, you won't find me buying any Macallan M any time soon; a steal at only £3,500. I was in my one of my local off licences and something shiny and … Continue reading The Antiquary 12. Best blend I’d never heard of?
James Eadie and the Goblet of Benrinnes 13
Totally changed my mind at the last minute for this review. It was all planned out and written up and ready to be blogged out, and you will see the fruits of those labours eventually but my mood has taken me somewhere else, somewhere independent, somewhere cask strength. I have got the urge to talk … Continue reading James Eadie and the Goblet of Benrinnes 13
You say Tomatin, I say Tomato. . .
Let's call the whole thing Scotch! Tomatin! Sits right on the border of the Highlands and Speyside and produces around 5 million litres of whisky a year, so they keep themselves busy up there. I've visited the distillery on my way up to Inverness and what I found most memorable was the amount of imposing … Continue reading You say Tomatin, I say Tomato. . .
Play that Funky Music Springbank
That's probably the worst/best title yet. I'll let you decide. Springbank. From that Westerly outcrop that is Campbeltown. Once a thriving whisky community it now is the home to just three distilleries, Glengyle, Glen Scotia and of course Springbank. Springbank and Glengyle distilleries are owned by J.A Mitchell and sons. A family run and very … Continue reading Play that Funky Music Springbank
