Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve–The new Glenlivet on the block replacing the 12 yo (in some markets) – review

I am not a huge Glenlivet 12  fan (I do think it’s a nice entry level malt, don’t get me wrong here, ok?) , so I was not really taken by the news of replacing the 12 year old  (in some markets, relax!) which is indeed a staple whisky and second only to the Glenfiddich 12 when it comes to …

Tasting Glenmorangie Duthac (Travel Retail)

Glenmorangie Duthac weirdly came into existence without any PR campaign, or anything by Glenmorangie, which is rather odd. Usualy  there’s quite a big fuss when a new expression comes out in the LVMH group. I first heard about it from a blog reader who asked me if I had heard about it (he works in the TLV duty free), and …

Nikka Miyagykio NAS – Review

The fact that Japanese whiskies are great is not a secret anymore. yes, we malt geeks have known this for a long while, but It seems most other people are just findint out about that, after this year’s Bible release and some major newspapers and sites picking up on it and claiming it has “defeated” scotch, or something like that. …

Label 5 “Gold Heritage” Blended Whisky- Review

Some people think I am a single malt snob. I am certainly not. I might have been biased against blends when I started my whisky journey 10 or so years ago, but I’ve grown older and smarter through the years. Yes, I do get to try some ultra rare expensive and old single malts, but I also get to try …

Glenmorangie Dornoch [Travel Retail] – Review

The new Glenmorangie ‘Tusail’ is just around the corner (released already, and I shall review it shortly), but prior to that Glenmorangie released another Travel retail only expression by the name of “Dornoch”. It’s not surprising this is a NAS expression. Why Dornoch?
Glenmorangie is Gaelic for ‘the glen of tranquility’ and the Dornoch expression was inspired by the distillery’s peaceful …

Tasting Yamazaki Puncheon (2012 edition)

Been quite a while since I posted any Yamazaki tasting notes, and it’s always good to come back to one of my favourite Japanese distilleries. If you have not tried the 12, 18 year olds by Yamazaki, do yourself a favour and check out my notes, then go get a bottle. Great stuff. Really textbook whiskies. This however is a …

Tasting Mackmyra Midvinter

This week I will be tasting some Mackmyra whisky, I felt i had to wait a bit until the climate got cooler to taste the Swedish delights of Mackmyra, and I believe (for me) it was a smart move. The first dram I am going to review is called Midvinter which means “Mid-Winter” (Swedish is rather similar to english sometimes, …
