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 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)
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)
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)
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)
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 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)
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.

Dumbarton 30 Sovereign (The Whisky Barrel 10th Anniversary)
Dumbarton 30 Sovereign (The Whisky Barrel 10th Anniversary)

Dumbarton has been one of my bogey distillereis for some time, i've tried it a few times at events and festivals but never written notes on any of them, until now.

Glenturret 22yr Barolo Finish (Whisky Broker)
Glenturret 22yr Barolo Finish (Whisky Broker)

Glenturret holds a real candle in my heart as it was the first distillery i ever visited, way back in the very late 1990s and is one i generally really like the flavours of.

Glenrothes 1997 19yr (Claxtons)
Glenrothes 1997 19yr (Claxtons)

Longrow 18 Year Old (2017)
Longrow 18 Year Old (2017)

Longrow, the heavily peated version of Springbank, is a dram i've not had a huge amount of times but i have enjoyed many i have had.

Kilkerran 8 year old cask strength
Kilkerran 8 year old cask strength

I've been really impressed with the drams coming from Kilkerran (or Glen Gyle Distillery) and i really love their softer elements in comparison to Springbank.

Hazelburn 13 Oloroso Cask
Hazelburn 13 Oloroso Cask

Hazelburn is unpeated and triple distilled Springbank and i generally love it to bits, it's got a hint of that oily dirty and maltiness that typifies Campbeltown but without the peat.

Glen Scotia 2002 Cask #164 Peated
Glen Scotia 2002 Cask #164 Peated

This single cask distillery exclusive peated malt was distilled in 2002, 410 bottles at 45% ABV were bottled from the cask.

Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye
Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye

In the 2016 Whisky Bible Jim Murray nominated this Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye as the best whisky in the world, starting an buying frenzy, but is it actually any good.

Rosebank 14 Year Old The Ultimate Cask 4766 (Van Wees)

Benrinnes 1995 Cask #9057 (The Single Malts of Scot land)
Benrinnes 1995 Cask #9057 (The Single Malts of Scot land)

I've seen a number of Independent bottlers with Benrinnes from 1995, all have been very tasting and this one from Speciality Brands label The Single Malts of Scotland, is another beauty.
