The Balvenie Tasting event–Tel Aviv  – Tasting the 40 year old and others…

We do not get a lot of visits by whisky brand ambassadors here in Israel: The market is quite small, and we’re not exactly located at the centre of the whisky universe. So, when an ambassador does visit, it’s really a treat to be able to take place in a real whisky event, which are quite scarce in our neck …

The Glenlivet Launch event–Founder’s Reserve (and the  Winchester Collection 50 yo)

Last week, I was very fortunate to attend the global launch of a new, permanent addition to the core Glenlivet range. The occasion, held in The Library, a swanky members only club near London’s Trafalgar Square was the perfect setting, and Glenlivet had clearly gone to much effort to brand the place its own with bottles from their range strategically …

A trio of Balblair 2000 single casks–#Millennium tasting

Last night Bablair held a very special twitter tasting, in which 3 very different single cask Balblairs (cask samples, nothing commercial – yet) were on the table. This tasting was kind of special since it was done partly on site ( a few lucky bloggers on a trip to the Inverhouse distilleries) and the rest of us from the comfort …

It’s not everyday that Highland Park (yes, one of my favourite distilleries) releases a new expression, and every such release is quite exciting. This time (In accordance with the current trend), they chose to release it as a NAS, and call it Dark Origins.

Glenfarclas Makes ‘Alyah’ to Israel –Tasting Event – Part II

Last week I posted the first part of this tasting, led by Mr. Ransom , which we started like you normally do , with the younger GF bottlings (the 8,10,12,and 15).
So there we were after sipping on the lovely 15 yo, and ready for the heavier cannons so to speak, in terms of age, and ABV (the 105). But before …

Glenfarclas Makes ‘Alyah’ to Israel –Tasting Event – Part I/II

It’s not a secret Israel is undergoing a renaissance period when it comes to whisky in recent months, all due to the (timely) change of Taxation laws on Spirits that took place 6 months ago, and changed taxation for the better for High end whiskies at the expense of local cheapo drinks. Before the reform a bottle would have been …

Four Reserve Mackmyra whiskies (online tasting)

The Internatioal whisky community is indeed not that big and one meets interesting people from all over on social media, and also in real life. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting  Anki Ulvmåne in real life , for the first time a year and a half ago, at Maltstock 2012, and even a better chance this year at the same …

The Macallan 1824 Series launch event @ London

This is the first Guest post from our friend Phil S. : Originally from London, Phil now lives in Israel with his family – when he doesn’t find himself on an aeroplane. Since sampling his first “proper” whisky at age 16 (it was a 12yo Strathisla), there was no turning back. Willing to try anything once, Phil is no snob …

Balblair 1997 (2012 edition) at the #Balblair tweet tasting

When Lukasz of Alembic comms who does the media magic for Balblair (and some other Interbev brands) calls for a twitter tasting I am the first to join in, and with good reasons. Those events are always a treat, and Balblair is one of my favourite distilleries ever since I’ve visited a couple of years ago, and was very impressed …
