This Dailuaine 16 year old single malt is part of the Flora and Fauna collection by Diageo. Dailuaine malt whisky distillery was founded in 1852 and is located in Charlestown-of-Aberlour, Strathspey in the Speyside region. Weird, but only 2% of its malt whisky is actually sold as single malt by […]

The Glenlivet Nadurra 16 year old review

Glenlivet Nàdurra 16 year old is a small batch cask strength single malt whisky, “nadurra” meaning natural in Gaelic. Based on the alcohol per volume level and the time I bought it, I think that this sample is from the batch bottled in January 2014. Resembling a lot of Glenlivet 12YO, which i […]

Scapa 16 year old review

Scapa 16 year old single malt whisky is matured in New American oak casks. Coming from the island of Orkney, the sea breeze does show in it. The package already tells you a story, what’s coming. Looks like a view from a lighthouse. And the whisky surely feels like it. […]

Highland Park Vintage 1994 review – distilled 1994, bottled 2010

Highland Park 1994 Vintage is 16 year old whisky matured in first-fill European (Spanish) oak sherry cask. Not at all like their Vintage 2001, which got a very good score from me. The 2001 version had a smoky palate because of the high proportion of first-fill American oak casks used in […]

Bushmills 16 year old “Three Wood” single malt review

Had a great Irish INTERMISSION with this dram Enjoyed in an intermission of a Team Finland’s important hockey game, this was like the Irish movie Intermission – humorously dark and good. Like this dram’s eccentric nose. Bushmills 16YO Single Malt Irish Whiskey is a wee light on the taste but […]

Lagavulin 1996 Distillers Edition review

Lagavulin 1996 Distillers Edition, also stated as the double matured, is evidently their 16 year old with a Pedro Ximénez dessert sherry cask finish. A fact, that really explained a lot to me about this dram afterwards. Actually I didn’t know it before I started the tasting, even though Lagavulin 16 years […]
