About Igor:

Here is my confession.

Back in the days when I was twenty six I took an interest in whisky. I've been well carried away by such immense phenomenon from then on - surely and irrevocably, - thus discovered uisge beatha to myself.

The reasons... reasons were quite simple really. Until then, before I was converted into this, I became fond of Scotland. I thought books gave me that crucial initial impulse. Reading James Kelman, Irvine Welsh aroused vital interest and hunger in me. Insatiably I watched numerous films, all sorts of documentaries and stuff. I grew ever more keen on stark wild beauty Caledonia may boast. Eventful, at times cruel history. Distinctive culture and mentality, accents, wit and unfading sense of humour - so much peculiar to Scots, ethnic flavour, and, obviously, the notorious national drink at long last. See, there's no point to dilate upon the question why am I into whisky, because I also found that I enjoy the latter thing as much as those preceding ones, or even better.

Top ten Scottish distilleries for me comprise Arran, Springbank, Ardbeg, Laphroaig and Caol Ila, Old Pulteney, Balblair, Benromach and Glengoyne. Well, these are just to name a few of a list of much beloved whiskies of mine, but there are lots more favourites of course.

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.
