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 …

Tasting Duncan Taylor Rare Auld Tamnavulin 21 yo

This is the last Rare Auld i will be reviewing in this series. I saved the best for last, as this was by far the best of the bunch. I am fond of sherry, that is well known, but this wee dram, is a true gem. No less.

Tasting Lagavulin 21- A real treat!

2011 is here. why not start it with a bang?  And what better than starting it with an ace of a dram. Yes, Lagavulin 21.

Quick Dram : The Dalmore 21

I love the Dalmore. the 15 year old is a work of art (combining 3 types of sherry casks in marriage) , The Mackenzie i tasted recently was very good, and spicy. So i have good memories of the Dalmore.  i had very high expectations for the 21 yo expression. An older, classic Dalmore. it must be brilliant i thought. …
