Glenmorangie 18 year old Extremely Rare review

Like having BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S This “Extremely Rare” edition from Glenmorangie is a delicate 18 year old single malt. This is like Audrey Hepburn of whiskys, a delicate flower. This is as delicate as it can get, when tasting whisky. Like Holly Golightly, seducing me the way she was luring George Peppard’s […]

Dalmore 12 year old review

HELLO, DOLLY! I’m leaving you Dolly The Dalmore 12 year old single malt is matured in American white oak and Oloroso sherry casks. For my taste, a contradictory dram. Pure with fruity sweet notes, yet with a bad twist. I detest marzipan and unfortunately Dalmore 12 yrs had it a […]

An Cnoc 12 year old review

Like tasting 500 DAYS OF SUMMER The 12 year old single malt by An Cnoc didn’t rock my world too much. Not a bad whisky, but a bit too flat-lined on the taste and finish. Yet, very easy to drink but not offering anything special. This sweet and spicy dram […]

Ballechin #5 The Marsala Casks review

Ballechin #5 The Marsala Casks turned out to be a great rugged single malt. Full of rough but pleasant peat, a whisky with attitude! Malt Maniacs gave it a Silver Medal. This heavily peated whisky from Edradour distillery is the fifth release from the Ballechin series, aged in Marsala casks. […]

Balblair Vintage 1989 review

CHAMPAGNE of single malts Champagne of single malts. At least that’s what Ralfy said. That expression fits to my world as well, at least when it comes to movies. This is like Alfred Hitchcock’s movie Champagne. Not the best one, he’s done but a fair showing. Just like Vintage 1989 […]

Old Worthy Scottish Pale Ale review

Smoky Pale Ale – Wow! Since this is a whisky blog, I won’t get too deep on beer. But I just had to write something about this nice addition to the world of beer. I came across Old Worthy by accident, when my fiancee picked me a bottle from the […]

Sheep Dip whisky review

The name Sheep Dip comes from the insesticide used to delouse sheep prior to sheering. Back in the day, farmers used to make “home made whisky”, because they didn’t want to pay any taxes for it. To help hiding their whisky, they marked each barrel with “SD”. Great story and […]

Teacher’s Highland Cream review

BAD TEACHER, yet a nice blend Teacher’s Highland Cream is one of the most famous blended whiskys. Jim Murray gave it 90 points in his Whisky Bible. Over 45% of Teacher’s is single malt, with Ardmore being the main scotch in the mix. I do like Teacher’s Highland Cream. It […]
