Kilchoman’s first foray into the Travel Retail market : The ‘Coull Point’

It was only a matter of time until this happened, and does not really come at a surprise to anyone who’s been monitoring the whisky scene, A NAS for the travel retail. There you have it, Kilchoman also wants in, and the TR market has its own rules, basically, cheap NAS at higher prices due to the price pressure of …

Old Pulteney 1990 peated cask

When I saw the PR regarding this new 1990 peated OP I was rather excited, as I remember how good was the 1990 Balblair peated cask ( a sister distillery in the same InterBen group). OP has been making some tasty whiskies (just to mention the 12,17 and lovely 21 – the 17 yo being my favourite) in recent years, …

Kilchoman Machir Bay 2013 edition

Time for some more Kilchoman fun this time the 2013 edition of the Machir Bay. It’s a bit different than the 100% Islay (it’s not 100% Islay duh!) in cask composition : bine a vatting of five year old bourbon-matured whisky, and four year old bourbon-matured and Oloroso-finished malt, which should  give it a sweeter fruitier profile. It’s bottled at …

Flaviar Peat Pack take 1 – Connemara Cask Strength

As whisky geeks we’re always on the look for new drams and there are so many expressions out there it’s really impossible to buy every bottles that comes out. One way of trying those expressions and still be on a budget is ordering samples. Now, there are a lot of sample sites I’ve reviewed in the past (Master of Malt …

It’s this time of year again, and Ardbeg day is upon us. This year Ardbeg is releasing a special bottling by the name of Ardbog (a nice word game combining ardbeg and the peat bogs into one word).

This indeed is a sister cask to this one (bottled for the Balblair fan’s club called The Gathering place), which I’ve tasted and liked so much as to buy a bottle (It …
