Aberfeldy 1993 Connoisseurs Choice (Gordon and MacPhail)

Aberfeldy 1993 Connoisseurs Choice (Gordon and MacPhail)

Independent bottlings, at cask strength, of Aberfeldy don't come along too often, so i was really excited to see this dram in a set of samples from Gordon and MacPhail.


BenRiach 10 Year Old

BenRiach 10 Year Old

Over the years I've has some utterly brilliant drams from Benriach, this loveable distillery became a bit of a sample shop releasing a wide breadth of different cask styles and finishes, generally all being damn good too.


Glenkinchie 1987 (Wm Cadenheads Authentic Collection)

Glenkinchie 1987 (Wm Cadenheads Authentic Collection)

I was having a bit of a grump at the weekend about the fact that we don't seem to get many independent bottlings of distilleries like Glenkinchie when it reminded me I had 100ml of this from a fairly recent bottle share still to crack into so it was time to hunt it out.


Dalwhinnie 2002 (bottled 2017) Oloroso Cask Finish - Distillers Edition

Dalwhinnie 2002 (bottled 2017) Oloroso Cask Finish - Distillers Edition

Dalwhinnie is a distillery that seems to have slipped through my radar pretty much all the time, I've previously reviewed a couple of examples but really need to make an effort to dig out some basic examples and try to review a few more of these.

Jura The Loch Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Another from the Jura Travel retail range, they all appear to be a combination of ex bourbon american oak and ex pedro Ximinez sherry casks, with varying amounts of peated and unpeated whisky in them.

Longmorn 1961 Private Collection Casks 508 and 512

When Gordon and MacPhail do a Private Collection you just know it's going to be something from the top end of special.

An AD Rattray Cask Experiment with Pulteney

The awesome whisky magicians at AD Rattray have been doing some experimentation with some casks of Arran, Pulteney and Bunnahabhain, keeping some it as is, and then splitting the rest over four 50 litre octaves made especially for AD Rattray from casks that previously held PX Sherry, Oloroso Sherry, Rioja Wine and Rum.
