GlenAllachie 25 First Editions / GlenAllachie 21 1996 Signatory Cask Strength

Thanks to /u/xile_ for the sample. GlenAllachie. I’ve not reviewed one before. This is my first time. Hopefully I’m gentle with myself. Let’s be honest, I won’t be. GlenAllachie was founded in 1967, making it quite young. Also impressive that such a young whisky distillery survived the 80s. Heck I’m surprised most people surprised the 80s, what […]

Glenfarclas 105 22

Alright, so every so often there’s a limited edition that catches my eye. Distillery bottlings command a premium, getting something that is worth it (and actually limited to some degree) is tough, you’re hoping it’s worth it, and all that. Glenfarclas has brought out 105 a few times before. I, for one, am typically interested […]

Ardmore 10 2008 Carn Mor Rare Drams

Thanks to /u/Throzen for pouring me a dram. Finishing up an impromptu tasting at Devoz’s place with Unclimbability, xile_, Throzen, distillasian, and smoked_herring, there was a lot of choices. It takes a certain amount of being an adult to not overdrink, not take everything put down in front of you, and also know your limit as well […]

BenRiach 10 2009 Peated (Cask 584)

Thanks to /u/devoz for pouring me a dram. By some fluke I ended up with another peated, younger BenRiach. It’s almost like I know what I like when I ask for samples from other adults who pour me things that I take home. Where was I? Oh, yes. BenRiach 10 2009 Peated, an ex-bourbon barrel single cask BenRiach […]

BenRiach (peated) 5 Battlehill

Thanks to /u/kinohead for the sample. So I’ve had a good amount of BenRiach. I can honestly say I enjoy the distillery… when it’s peated. When it isn’t, we don’t get along as well. However, as one of the distilleries that like to play with casks or different types of whisky or single casks, they’re fun. […]

Glen Keith 21 1992 Archives

Thanks to /u/Saba007[ for pouring me this dram. Glen Keith isn’t exactly at the top of most peoples “saw it at a bar” lists. It’s the first Speyside to be built since the whisky crash of 1898. No, you aren’t dyslexic, that’s the 19th century. And it was mothballed in 1999, left to eventually reopen in 2013. […]

Glenrothes 2003 Single Cask

Thanks to /u/Saba007 for this one Glenrothes. I enjoy them. Quite a bit. As long as they are a) independently bottled and b) cask strength. Oh, and c) ex-Bourbon casks. I’m a sucker for them. Enter Saba007. He likes Glenrothes as well. But he likes Sherry casks. So he goes out and gets an OB, single cask, […]
