Back To Basics 2018
Only this week my very good friend Barry from The WhiskyPhiles posted a review of the Clynelish 14 as part of his back to basics campaign for 2018 looking at tasting "standard" drams again and it reminded me of the many drams i'm missing from this site despite the over 1500 reviews that are here.
Woods 100 Old Navy Rum
Another from the 2017 Drinks By The Dram Rum advent calendar.
Ron Zacapa Centenario Sistema Solera 23
Back at the tail end of last year i was offered the opportunity to sample a Drinks By The Dram advent calendar, my biggest issue with that is that the Whisky ones offer a large amount of drams that i've already sampled and reviewed for the blog, and with a backlog already of samples it was time for something different.
Highland Park 12yr Cask 1140 (World Duty Free Gatwick Exclusive)
I have a love hate relationship with Highland Park with some being ones i love and others i don't so when i was invited to join a twitter tasting to sample the new 12 year old single cask which will be exclusive to London Gatwick airport i jumped at the chance.
SMWS 76.108 Raspberry Ruffles
This dram from the distillery known as the Beast of Dufftown, is a perfect example of how brilliant single casks can be and how complex.
Mortlach 1971-1996 (Gordon and MacPhail)
This was handed to me by a lovely customer at work, and is from a bottle distilled in 1971 and bottled in 1996.
Mortlach 6yr 2006 Vintage Collection (Morrison and Mackay)
This sample came from my good friend Barry at The Whiskyphiles, and is from a 200ml bottle fromt he Carn Mor Vintage collection, a young 6 year old Mortlach distilled in 2006.
Mortlach 17yr 1997 PX Finish (Chieftans)
There are many independent bottlings of Mortlach, and this one from Ian MacLeods Chieftains Choice range is a delicious 17 year old finished in Pedro Ximinez casks.
A Quartet of Mortlach Drams
Mortlach is one of those distilleries that brings huge smiles to the faces of almost all whisky fans, the "beast of Dufftown" is known for it's meaty powerful huge flavours.
Now In Stores 23rd October 2017
This weeks Now in Stores has an utter splendid 171 new items in the listing from 4 online retailers.
SMWS 10.108 Yin and Yang
An interesting 9 year old from this Islay Distillery matured in a virgin oak hogshead from the Scotch Malt Whisky Society.
Bunnahabhain 2006 The MacPhails Collection (Gordon and MacPhail)
Another Bunnahabhain from Gordon and MacPhails wood makes the whisky campaign this expression is a 2006 non pleated dram from The MacPhails Collection.
Bunnahabhain 17yr Old Particular (Douglas Laing)
Another independent Bunnahabhain this time from Bottlers Douglas Laing, this 17 Year Old from the Old Particular range is one I was keen on trying.
A Triple Stack of Bunnahabhain
Bunnahabhain has always been a distillery i have loved, it was one of the first whiskies i ever had as an adult some 20 odd years ago and ther standard 12 back then was one youo would be forgiven for thinking was a Speysider.
A Warm Welcome to Callum Rixson
