Whiskybase

About kfhakan:

Started my whisky journey 30 years ago wisting Scotland. Collecting at least one item from every destilleri available.After the "Singel malt explosion" and the visiting 67 (!) destilleries I changed after having 1400 bottles on the shelf. Impossible with all new and also all different versions from the old distilleries . Sold the whole collection  and took my other interest- wine instead ...for almost one year!  Then I couldn't resist the challenge anymore, but changed into another collecting line - Whisky from Islands around the world (except Japan). Islay,Skye,Lewis ,Harris,Orkney,Jura, Arran,Hven.... all easy to access all with friendly staff. Sailing around the inner and outer Hebrides for two years  fortified my opinion about from where the best whisky in the world was made-It takes an island ! Was afraid to not keep contact with the rest so I also collects  a spread of distilleries beside islands in Signatory Vintage(cask strange) in which I have   Another bottler also with a destilleri of there own is Adelphi with excellent choices - especially early bottlings.  The best moment of my whisky life? It was when I had the possibility and honor to be present when the new Ardbeg was started up by Edwin Dodson from Glen Moray (what a wonderful day)...also the possibility to join for the great anniversary a few years after....and ohhhh what Edwin had to teach. Most of knowledge about the production technic is a gift from him (Thank YOU!) An odd experience was also following the Jura crew as the managed the then closed Bruichladdich-hard to understand today when Bruichladdich almost has exploded in bottlings ....to be continued. Whisky is for drinking and tasting events and moments for me. Whisky & cooking....email me -thats our speciality!

Ruadh Maor - For the members of Whiskybase

Selected a few months ago because we think it will appeal to a group of whisky drinkers. If you are looking for a nice drinking whisky: Ruadh Maor from Berry Bro's & Rudd for the Members of Whiskybase. A peated Glenturret matured in a sherry butt, not your average lemonade and a pleasant surprise. Limited to 120 bottles, we are not sure where the rest of the contents went. This bottle is now available in our shop.
