Kilchoman 5 Year Old 2008 – Single Cask (Master of Malt)

Can’t go wrong with a young peaty Kilchoman , can you? Well, you can’t really, but I’ve had some less interesting single cask Kilchoman (and one OB I own) which were not as good, I’ve also had a cracking 4 year old single cask Indie, so I was hoping this one was going to be a cracker, and it damn …

Master of Malt Tormore 28 yo single cask

Tormore is a relatively young distillery (only founded in the 1950’s)
and is another of those distilleries you rarely see any bottling of (owned by Chivas Bros.). But guess what, the chaps at MoM have scored a 28 year old cask, and they were kind enough to share a sample. So here goes, Tormore tasting note #1 on the blog:
Tormore 28 …

Master of Malt Deanston 19 yo single cask

Deanston. Not a distillery I am very familiar with, but I have had a few drams here and there, and quite liked their “virgin oak” expression whish is well priced even here in Israel. I did not quite what to expect by this single cask, but man, was I in for a real treat.
This beauty was distilled at the Deanston …

Even more Whisky Geekery : Talisker 10 vs. Redistilled Talisker

With my tasting faculties still out of order ( i could not tell a coke from an ardbeg supernova by sniffing or tasting. i can guarantee  you this. So better not try) with this damn flu , It’s a good time to indulge in some whisky geekery for part III of “distilled or the original, which is better”. This time …

Arran 16 Year Old – Single Cask (Master of Malt)

Not all single casks are created equal, and although most of this batch of single casks from MoM were really good (with some excellent ones as well), here is an example of one that IMHO missed a little. The relatively Isle of Arran produced some fine malt, and I have previously reviewed both OBs and single casks which were rather …
