Macallan 18 year old Sherry Oak review

Macallan 18YO Sherry Oak is an okay whisky but it was bit of a small disappointment for me. That’s because I tasted it very early, while starting my “whisky tasting career”. Nowadays I already know, what kind of whiskys I might like. Back then, when I tasted this, Macallan 18 […]

Macallan 12YO Elegancia and 10YO cask strength reviews

Macallan 12 year old Elegancia review

First of all, Macallan Elegancia is a interesting addition to the whisky world. Especially for whisky drinkers, who love wine. I’m not one of those but still this dram managed to capture me a bit. The Elegancia, which I tasted, was a part of Macallan tripack: that included 3 x […]

Macallan 10YO Sherry Oak and Sherry Oak Cask Strength reviews

10YO Sherry Oak – SHERRYBABY right from the start Macallan Sherry Oak is matured in selected sherry oak casks from Jerez. Unlike the Macallan Fine Oak, which is matured in different kind of casks. I got the Macallan tripack, which includes 3 x 33,3 cl of the 10YO, 12YO Elegancia and the […]

Speyburn 10 year old review

For many years, Speyburn 10 year old has been one of the cheapest single malt whiskys in Finnish liquor stores. And compared to the low price, many people might call this one a “cost efficient whisky”. If you may use that kind of term about the king of alcohol – […]

Cragganmore 14 year old (Friends of the Classic Malts) review

A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS I wouldn’t want to waste in this dram Well, I didn’t waste any dollars in Cragganmore 14 year old single malt – it was a dram in one of our whisky society’s tastings in Finland. But if I ever had bought one, I’d be very much […]

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 […]

Monkey Shoulder review

Monkey Shoulder Batch 27 review

Tried a sample of Monkey Shoulder Batch 27. A blended malt from William Grant & Sons, mixed together with malts from Glenfiddich, Balvenie and Kininvie. The funny name comes from the temporary injuries, that malt men suffered at distilleries, when turning the barley by hand. EMMANUELLE without any risk taking […]

Knockando 1993 12 year old review

SOME LIKE IT HOT but this is mildly hot Knockando 12 year old is always a product of one single season. I got a chance to taste the 1993 version at our local whisky society tasting in Finland. If Knockando 12YO was a movie, it might be a typical Friday […]

Glen Elgin 12yo review

Glen Elgin 12 year old review

KILL BILL VOL. 2 experience for me Glen Elgin 12YO is a tricky single malt. I had this one in a whisky tasting and sampling just isn’t enough for me to get a hang of it. Glen Elgin 12 years felt like a sequel to something more full. Kill Bill […]

Glen Parker Speyside Single Malt review

CIDER HOUSE RULES gone bad If you know about Glen Parker Single Malt’s reputation and wonder why I bother reviewing this one, it’s because Whisky Bible’s Jim Murray gave it 86 points. Well, actually this isn’t much of a review. I can’t come up with much words for it. I hardly […]
