About Luigisim:

I am found of whisky distilled before the big crisis of the '80 that in my opinion changed the way how to create this wonderful distillate.

There are surely great whiskies after eighties but the palate tells me that before this era the percentage of wonderful distilled dram is around 80% while after that is not more than 20%.

This is why I am a big fan of closed distilleries, they have a profile different than modern whiskies. Yeast, malt and production time and processes have evolved, older time were better.

My beloved distilleries are the trio from Inverness (Millburn above all), Brora, Linlithgow and Port Ellen.

I am willing to exchange/buy samples or bottles of that whisky era.

210.000 bottles milestone release

A new release for the 210.000 bottles milestone. We just passed the 210.000 registered bottles, which calls for a new whisky. We selected an M&H pomegranate wine cask, which matured at the dead sea (the lowest point on earth). It is a huge flavor bomb. However, with only 255 bottles available, you should not wait too long.

Whiskybase Gathering bottling

For the Whiskybase Gathering we released a secret Highland malt. Distilled at a distillery located near Brora. Known for a typical waxy profile. A few of these bottles are now available in the Whiskybase Shop. For everyone who missed out on the Gathering, this is your opportunity to get your hands on a festival bottling.
