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 …

Chivas Regal 18 yo

From time to time I get emails or comments from people asking why I am reviewing mostly “limited editions” or other special editions of malts, and not more widely available blends or malts. The truth is that I try to reviews those too (and have done so quite a few times), but there is always room for more. I am …

#12blends Day 6  – Johnnie Walker Platinum 18 yo

Day 6, and again my guess failed big time. Not that i have ever had this one but, still. I went for the Bailie Nicol Jarvie blend (and as it appears quite a few other mates went for the same one , and were wrong). Let’s roll:
Johnnie Walker 18 Year Old Platinum Label , 40% , £63.31

Tasting The Whisky Society Longmorn 1990 18 yo

A couple of months back, I met a group of friends for a tasting evening with a theme – “Cask strength”. It was bring your own, and taste, as long as it was bottled at cask strength (or premium strength for the matter), it was ok. I brought my beloved HP 14 year old bottled by the guys who run …

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 …

Buffalo Trace Antique Collection Take IV : Sazerac 18

Perhaps the most well known whisky of the Antique Collection, after winning Murray’s Whisky bible whisky of the year in his 2010 edition and scoring a whopping 97.5 /100 score .  Again, this is a straight Rye whisky, which means at least 51% of it is Rye. So how good is this whisky, does it deserve the title? Let’s see.

Sazerac …
