Linkwood 1991-2009  [G&M for Van Wees] Cask #7271

When a good Linkwood comes around, I can not say no. Last night I was visiting a good whisky friend, and we shared a few drams. This was the first, and maybe the highlight of the evening (with another Linkwood by Cadenheads being runner up). Can’t ask for more.

Older Benromachs rock too–Benromach 1976

After the brilliant 10 year old, comes a much older, and much more expensive vintage Benromach – the 1976. Only one year younger than yours truly, it’s really at the age when whisky begins to display those “old” characteristics, i love so much. at £485 (at The whisky exchange), it’s not a cheap dram at all, and it’s aimed at …

The affordable whisky that could: Benromach 10

We do not often remember this, but most people drink blended whisky, and those who do drink single malts often opt for the affordable malts which some of us whisky geeks find “boring” : The Glen Livet 12, the Glenfiddich 12 etc, or in short: single malts under 30 quid.
It’s been long since i tried anything from Benromach, now owned …

Two very different Indie Macallans (G&M and Blackadder)

Macallan. That Iconic distillery, which by now I suspect is more of a monetary instrument in the whisky investment portfolio than actually a drinking whisky for most… Or is it?
With the surging prices of OB Macallans (Have you seen the price of say a 18 year old sherry oak? a 30 year old Sherry Oak? if you can find any), …

Finishing 2013 with a bang : G & M Macallan Speymalt 1970

I’ve posted my summary of 2013 and it was indeed a dramtastic year for me. What better than to finish it with a bang! and this dram my friends, is nothing short of that. It’s stellar. And although it’s expensive, It’s not by any means THAT expensive. So you might actually be able to buy a bottle or share one …

G&M Caol Ila 2000 Cask #309558-309559

One of the nice things about getting samples from whisky mates, is that you sometimes get additional stuff you never expected. this one is just like that. A cask strength release of 2000 vintage Caol Ila. This is a marriage of two casks which have been matured in first fill Sherry butts, before being bottled on June 2012 by G&M. …

Tasting Caperdonich 1969 by G&M

So, Demolished distillery bottling, are they tastier? or are we just missing those distilleries which will never operate again? That is a good question I need to devote an entire post to, or even a poll, but until then we’ll give Caperdonich the benefit of the doubt, as it is one of those distilleries that ceased to operate but yielded …

Today i am going to review a dram from a distillery which is not very well-known i believe (Not to me anyways) : Glenburgie.  The Glenburgie distillery is located at Alves, Near Forres, Morayshire (Speyside district). The distillery was founded in 1829 under a different name (Kilnflat) and currently is owned by Pernod Richard. Glenburgie boasts 6 stills (3 …
