Blind Tasting Competition 2014 – Days 13-14

Day 13 was day I will remember, since I guessed the distillery (Glendronach). one of my favourite distilleries, and the nose and palate screamed BIG SHERRTY DRONACH. I was a bit silly to not have opted for a high abv cask and guessed it was younger, so I did not get the entire score. Not sure why It did not …

Wemyss Malts Glen Scotia 1991 “Merchant’s Mahogany Chest”

This is another single cask from the latest batch of 12 casks released by Wemyss just recently. If you remember, I’ve reviewed another Glen Scotia 1991 by Wemyss a few months ago -  the “Salted Caramels”, but these two apart from the same vintage, are really very different, quite excellent each in its special way. It’s so very interesting to …

This dram and those notes are all in honor of a fellow whisky blogger and mensch who recently stopped blogging about this favorite drop of liquor : whisky.

SMWS 93.50–Glen Scotia 20yo–“Hot embers at the gate of hell”

Another SMWS bottling this time from the Region of Campbletown which once was one of the biggest whisky regions and is now reduced to only 3 operating distilleries (Springbank, Kilkerran and G.Scotia). I’ve tasted a few GS’s in recent months (Indie bottling by Kintra of NL and another 19 year old I’ve yet to review, and will do soon). I …

Tasting Fredericia Golf & Whisky Club Springbank Sherry cask 332 vintage 1999

It’s always nice meeting a good whisky friend, especially Jorn who’s a real whisky lover and a good friend. Last time he visited Israel, we could not meet due to schedule issues, but this time we arranged to meet and share some beer and drams. We set to meet at one of Israel’s best pubs (in my opinion) and Israel’s …

Springbank Rundlets and Kilderkins

It’s not everyday that Springbank releases a new expression and this one has also a unique
name , unlike most other springers who have only a vintage or a year indication. As it seems Rundlets and Kilderkins are two different measuring units for liquids , which were used in olden days. The Springbank site also tells the tale of a lady …
