Glenfiddich  15 yo Cask strength (older bottle)

A friend of mine came over for a few drams, and brought a bottle of this 15 year old Fiddich. He had no information when it was bottled, just that he was able to find this at one of his friend’s , a guy who was not really into whisky. How he came about to own this one is a …

The Glenlivet Vertical (12,15,18 year olds)

Tony Soprano loves his Glenlivet 12, and I love Tony soprano, hence I love The Glenlivet 12. Sort of anyways. As the Glenlivet is probably one of the best selling single malts out there (with Glenfiddich) and very well know, It’s only appropriate we have some more of that on the blog. I know we’re posted a guest post reviewing …

Two Glengoyne (12,15 year old) OBs

Every distillery has to find some kind of “uniqueness” to its whiskies, and Glengoyne have found just that in indicating that their malt is never dried with peat (but with air), so there is no peat whatsoever in their malt.

Bowmore Laimrig 15 yo

Been trying to source a sample of this for a long time, and thanks to my whisky friend E.S who was kind enough to mail me one (and so quick)  – mission was accomplished. For those of you who have not heard about this ‘limited edition’:
Laimrig is Scottish Gaelic for ‘pier’, and is named after Bowmore’s ancient stone pier. It’s …

Tasting Highland park 15

Considering i am a big fan of HP whisky and tasted all their OB’s (but the 50 year old which is too expensive) most reviewed here it’s funny this is the first time I am really tasting the 15 year old. I’ve had a sip of that on previous occasions but never sat down and wrote proper notes like a …

New Blended whisky from Wemyss Malts : “Lord Elcho” 15 yo

Those of you who read the blog on a regular basis know that I find Wemyss Malts single casks and blended malts to be very good to excellent. They do bottle good stuff, and do not bother with mediocre stuff, and usually they produce top notch stuff. The new expression named “Lord Elcho” is their first attempt at the blended …

Tasting the Glenfiddich Core Range at the Norma Jean

I am not the biggest Glenfiddich fan out there, but when Tomer ,an Israeli blogger and whisky lover (who blogs in Hebrew about alcohol and whisky) , asked who is interested in a Glenfiddich tasting , where we’ll pretty much try the entire range, i could not say No. It’s true, I’ve recently tried most of it at the British …

Five years ago i would not touch a single whisky. I did not like whiskies, and my memory of whiskies back than were of low quality blends, which did not attract me. When i was offered a dram I would say, no. Then, one Evening I visited my friend Kfir, and he offered me dram. I asked him if he …
