Highland Park Spirit of the Bear
Highland Park over the years have produced some really interesting drams, and their Travel Retail ranges have been ones I've liked a good number of before, and although they seem to be getting a fair bit of stick from some whisky quarters at the moment I was really looking forward to trying this range.
Dailuaine 16 Year Old Flora and Fauna
Dailuaine, one of Diageos core drams, is one that i tend to find myself going to fairly regularly when i see it by independant bottlers but i kept missing the 16 year old flora and fauna bottlings for some reason.
Linkwood 1996 Celebration of the Cask (Carn Mor)
When whisky that isn't that old, like this one in its early twenties, and the abv is as low as this you know that the cask has been either leaky or active.
Tomatin 15 Year Old Moscatel Wine Cask Finish
I’ve always had a bit of a thing for Tomatin, it’s a distillery that I really enjoy, it tends to sit on the lighter side with lots of fruits and vanilla, so a Moscatel wine cask finish sounds really interesting
SMWS 121.89 Sweet as a Nut
Been a while since I reviewed a Scotch Malt Whisky Society bottling so dug through the outstanding sample boxes (yes there’s still hundreds of them from official samples and sample swaps like this one) and found this little beauty.
Raasay While We Wait Second Edition
The Isle of Raasay distillery began distilling in 2017 and until whisky is released in 2020 they will have some whisky from other distilleries available which is selected by the team at Raasay and Borders and finished by them.
Benriach 1990 Celebration of the Cask (Carn Mor)
I’m a big fan of the Carn Mor Celebration of the Cask series, lots of great casks packed full of flavour and bottled at the right time.
Glenlivet 27 Year Old Batch 1 (That Boutiquey Whisky Company)
Glenlivet is many peoples first dram, and from memory the 2016 best selling single malt whisky in the world, taking over from Glenfiddich for the first time, and it deserves the accolades it gets.
Angioletti Vero Sidro Italiano Riserva
A really interesting Medium cider made from Italian pressed apples and lightly sparkling, and in a cracking bottle that looks more wine than cider.
Garnheath 42 Year Old 1974 Vintage XOP (Douglas Laing)
Well this is a dram from a distillery I know not a lot about, other than it’s a Grain distillery that no longer exists, and its basically the same age as I am.
Thatchers Haze Cloudy Cider
Another supermarket purchase, picked out especially after Steve Prentice, my mate who happens to live in Cider country, told me this was top of his go to list.
Glen Moray 2010 Peated PX Finish
This Peated malt, which is around 6 year old, was finished in Pedro Ximinez Sherry cask number 99917 giving the peat a caramelised jam finish.
Blended Grain No 1 50 Years Old Batch No 2 (That Boutique-y Whisky Company)
So lets just take a minute to look at the age statement on this dram, 50, yes 50, year old blended grain from the wizards of whisky at That Boutique-y Whisky Company, and batch 2 of it, at that.
Jack Daniels Tennessee Cider
I’ve been picking up supermarket Ciders recently and this is another from my local supermarket, an interesting cider from Jack Daniels.
Flor De Cana 12 Year Old
I've had Flor de Cana rums a few times but always with cigars so never written reviews of them so was nice to sit and sip this one on it's own.
