“[March, 2017]  When Uigeadail was released back in 2003 I found this a great dram and scored it 91 points.  It was simply delicious: very complex in its flavours and aromas and nicely balanced.  So I bought several bottles...

“Is this whisky overrated and overhyped? Definitely not! Lagavulin 16 is an outstanding Single Malt from Islay and a cornerstone of Scotch whisky culture. Intense peat smoke with hints of iodine and seaweed dominates the nose, merging with soft…” Read more

“The PLV at this point is impressive. Nice age with a balanced sherry barrel ratio. However, I prefer the younger two 15/18 at Glendronach. It's a matter of taste. You can also feel that the 15 and 18 belong together. Parliament is very special.” Read more

“GlenDronach is a bit of a one-trick pony, but boy, they know how to make a great sherry malt! Recent batches of the 'Allardice' are much older than 18 years, and the age shows. Heavy sherry notes, oranges and rich spices bewitch the nose, intermingled…” Read more

“[March, 2017]  Another Ardbeg re-taste:  When the first Corryvreckan was released I found it not just a very interesting dram with a new, never before tasted profile (due to its share of virgin oak matured malt) but it became my favourite modern…” Read more

“If you are on a malt treasure hunt, watch out for the word 'discontinued'. GlenDronach 15 was easily the best whisky of the distillery's core range. The nose is overwhelmingly complex with balsamic vinegar, overripe berries, raisins, maraschino…” Read more

“The HP18 is a finely balanced malt with lots of details - it does not clink with its aromas, everything wants to be discovered. How beautiful could he be first with 3% more ... Yummy! ... and clearly the smokiest from the standard range (12, 18, 21, 25, 30)” Read more

“Somehow I knew from the start how that would turn out. I didn't want to approach these Notes negatively from the outset. So I stay neutral and factual with this hype bottle. Still, a small "but" in advance: I'll keep it short. An expected "different…” Read more

“How do they do it? I mean.. 25yo quality single malt OB, for less then 100 euro's. comparable aged OB's go for 2-3 times that amount. Fair enough, I don't think it's comparable in terms of quality. Take for example Glengoyne 25 or Glenlivet…” Read more
