Glen Garioch 26yr 1991 XOP (Douglas Laing)
When this set of XOP drams arrived from Douglas Laing i judged this one to be the poor cousin of the rest, the others included a very old North British, a Littlemill, an Old Macallan, an Old Laphroaig and a 21 year old Springbank, but this Glen Garioch stands up to them all.
Littlemill 25yr 1991 XOP (Douglas Laing)
When I started this blog in it's initial form was back in the very early days of 2012 (i actually did a couple on the last few days of 2011 also), i never thought i'd see the day when i had reviewed 1500 products, but that day has arrived.
North British 55yr 1962 XOP (Douglas Laing)
When you get to a certain age whisky tends to not be older than you, or if it is it gets very expensive, so being in my early 40s and drinking a whisky 13 year older than me, this really does make me stop and think.
Timorous Beastie 18 Year Old (Douglas Laing)
Timorous Beastie 21 and 40 were both outstanding, this 18 year old really was one i wanted to try.
Scallywag 13 Year Old (Douglas Laing)
Scallywag really is a terrier of a dram with lots of sweet fruits and dark fruit cakes, lots of leather and chocolate, so an older, age statement dram is going to be great isnt it.
Rock Oyster Sherry Edition (Douglas Laing)
Rock Oyster is one of those drams I often hear friends saying "this is my favourite remarkable regional malt" add in a big dash of Sherry and many will be running around in excitement.
Rock Oyster 18 Year Old (Douglas Laing)
Rock Oyster is one of those drams I often hear friends saying "this is my favourite remarkable regional malt" and I was really looking forward to this.
Big Peat Christmas Edition 2017 (Douglas Laing)
Big Peat releases a cask strength edition every year as their limited edition Christmas Edition, since 2011 and this 2017 is totally on my radar.
Big Peat Feis Ile 2017 (Douglas Laing)
Seeing releases of Remarkable Regional malts from Douglas Laing always makes me happy and when it's Big Peat i'm even happier, i love the creamy smoke that comes with it.
Highland Park Valkyrie
The first in a series of Viking Legends drams from Highland Park, this is one i've seen a few mixed reviews on.
Miltonduff 1999 Cask #5012 (The Single Malts of Scotland)
Another from The Single Malts of Scotland, this Miltonduff (normally part of the Ballantines Blend) is an interesting dram, that is a definite Jekyll & Hyde.
Glenrothes 1989 Cask #8172 (The Single Malts of Scotland)
This single cask Glenothes comes from The Single Malts of Scotland range of single cask drams, its an old lady of a dram and one i really enjoyed.
Bruichladdich 1992 Cask #3839 (The Single Malts of Scotland)
This dram is from The Single Malts of Scotland series of single casks, being an early 1990's Bruichladdich its really interesting and was distilled prior to some of the crazy casks of today (which i like also) but always nice to taste a bit of history.
Glencadam 17 Year Old Portwood Finish
Glencadam is a distillery that always gets me a little, i generally like the liquid, but for some unknown reason i tend not to spend much time drinking it, and i don't know why.
Lossit - Classic Selection (The Lost Distillery Company)
The Lost Distillery Company spend a lot of time and effort researching the history of long gone distilleries and looking at the flavour profiles they are likely to have had, before recreating as a blended malt.
