I've been looking at Blended Scotch quite closely recently and there are a number of other reviews to come in the next few weeks, this Dewars 12 year old - the ancestor is todays.
A 25 year old Blended Scotch is always going to be something i'm going to be happy to give a try of, and this Dewar's 25 Year Old is no different.
I've reviewed a number of Remarkable Regional Malts on this site over the last 6 years but this one was one that really did excite me, its not often an interesting affordable dram from Campbeltown is released.
I've been working my way through a number of Blends recently, not quite part of the Back to Basics campaign but it certainly is a way of getting more perspective as some of these blends are truly delicious.
When this dram was first released it was only available in Global Travel Retail, but has since been released onto the general market also.
The standard Timorous Beastie is a seriously drinkable dram, so this 10 year Old expression is one that I was really excited to see.
This is my first time sampling the Grandeur, which i've heard a lot of people rave about over the years.
I've never been afraid to try, or talk about Blended Scotch and this James Eadies Trade Mark X Blended Scotch Whisky is no different, although it is very unique.
Black a Gold is the best of the best from the Carn Mor Celebration of the Cask series from Morrison and Mackay and with a Macallan that’s 25/26 years old and single cask you know why it’s in this series.
Second of four new wood finishes from Glenglassaugh Distillery, this second one finished in Port wood.
A 30 year old Peated Benriach, now that sounds like a dram i'm going to absolutely love.
The first of four new wood finishes from Glenglassaugh Distillery, this first one finished in Pedro Ximenez Sherry wood.
I've not had the most brilliant experiences with French whisky in the past so when Barry from The Whiskyphiles handed me a sample of this i was a little Sceptical.
Another from a set of reviews of Benriach batch 14 single casks, released a short while back they had been snapped up in many specialists even before hitting the shelves.
Just before Christmas I was very lucky to receive two samples of ome amazing Japanese whisky from the friendly folks at Dekanta, this is the second of those.

A good 10-15 years ago i bought a bottle from Royal Mile Whiskies for a blind tasting with friends that was meant to fool them, it was a bottle of Amrut Single Malt, my first World Whisky that wasn't from North America and it went down a storm with me and my friends.
The top of the range dram from Glen Morays Elgin Heritage range and matured in a first fill american oak barrels is this 18 year old.
The next level dram from Glen Morays Elgin Heritage range and matured in a combination of american oak and european ex sherry oak.
The entry level dram from Glen Morays Elgin Heritage range and matured exclusively in American Oak casks, this dram was described to me by The distillery’s Iain Allan as the typical Speyside dram and to be fair I can’t disagree.
