Haig Club Single Grain – Review

There has been a lot of talk about this specific bottle, after Diageo has chosen David Beckham to endorse this whisky and be it’s presentor. Yes, it does look like an aftershave doesn’t it?
And yes, it’s supposedly very young grain whisky sold for a lot of money. All is true.Yes. I was not expecting it to appeal to whisky …

Wemyss Malts  – ‘Lemon Cheesecake’ 1988 Invergordon (single grain)

Time to start a series of reviews for the latest batch of single casks from Wemyss Malts. Correct me if I am wrong, but this seems to be the first single grain bottling from Wemyss who usually do single cask malts. Very nice. Grain (and certainly older grain) can be lovely, and they deserve a place among the whisky shelves …

Teeling  Single Grain Whiskey

After tasting the aged offerings from Teeling whiskey (namely the 21, 26 and 30), it’s time to get more realistic, and try the more affordable releases. Surely, not many can afford the more expensive stuff, but surely the two younger offerings are budget friendly drams. the first of the two I am going to visit is the single Grain. Grain …

Invergordon – Batch 1 (That Boutique-y Whisky Company)

Yet another Boutique-y release, but this time it’s no single malt, but single GRAIN. yes, grain whisky, the stuff most whisky snobs would never care to drink since it’s “the cheap stuff they put into blends” or some other nonsense. If you are a whisky lover, you know better than that, and we have tasted some lovely single Grains in …

Tasting Cambus 24 yo  (Bladnoch Forum)

Moving back in time to the remains of my Bladnoch bottle share samples. This time we’re dealing with Cambus (Camb-what?! you ask?), So, yeah. Cambus WAS a grain distillery located in the lowlands and was closed in 1993. Most Single malt snobs (mainly those who don’t have a clue) do not drink Grain whisky, although those who have tried some …

Tasting SMWS G6.1- Port Dundas 28 yo ‘Spicy Cologne’

Port Dundas is not a well known distillery, and lacks prestige as one of diageo’s grain producing distilleries. It’s located not far from Glasgow, and currently was a major contributor to blended scotch under the labels of Haig, JW, and White horse. Currently there are no OB and only independent bottlers are issuing bottling of casks in recent years, those …
