I was lucky enough to be part of a Balblair tweet tasting of three 2000 single cask drams that may never be bottled as such.
Part of a Balblair tweet tasting this 2000 vintage cask 1345 is from an ex sherry butt.
Part of a Balblair tweet tasting this 2000 vintage cask 0191 is from a cask that previously held a peated islay whisky..
Part of a Balblair tweet tasting this 2000 vintage cask 1350 is a second fill ex bourbon cask.
This Glenrothes 21 Year Old from the Old Malt Cask series dates to before the split of Hunter Laing and Douglas Laing when everything came under Douglas Laing .
Nope not a triple stack of pancakes but instead a triple stack of interesting and very different Ardbeg whiskies.
Part of the Darkness series of drams from Maverick Drinks where they are finishing whiskies in 50L ex sherry casks for a matter of months giving a unique taste and flavour.
Thanks to my good friend Yoav (@yoavgel) from Whisky Gospel for the sample of this 2007 bottling of Ardbeg Airigh Nam Biest.
An interesting dram the Ardbeg Kildalton Project 2014 with this review based on a sample provided by Johnnie Stumbler (@johnniestumbler) from The Nosing Arse blog.
Jura whisky has for a long time now been my favourite distillery, I know it has a bit of a marmite following where people either love or hate it but I am firmly in the love camp.
