About Povl77:

My Whisky interest started around the year 2000, with a Glenfiddich 18Y old dark green label, picked up in an airport in Greece.

Then Glendronach and Highland Park was some of the favorites, and I joined a whisky club, and discovered Islay Whisky and I was sold.

Ardbeg held a special place in my heart up till around 2010, where 1977, Lord of the isles, Very Young and Alligator stood out.

From around 2017 I started really exploring Sherry, where Longmorn from the 1960-70 have been at the top of my list, but of course Glenfarclas and Mortlach have also really struck a nerve.

Whiskies lately from 2020 and onwards, I've been exploring US Bourbon and Rye with George T Stagg & Michters Rye Barrel Strength as highrunners, But also Older Grain whisky 40Y+ I've found extremely interesting, but again it's a never-ending journey, and a really nice 20Y+ bourbon matured scotch from a good Cask, that's hard to beat, here Benrinnes have really been something I've been enjoying.

Starting to explore some Irish whisky also, Cooley & Redbreast, it's a big world, and Kavalan have also really impressed me.

But Japan, with Hakushu, Yamazaki & Karuizawa are exceptional whisky.

Found some likeminded whisky friends, that have since become real friends in all aspect of the word, and good whisky is nothing without the right company, joined a sample network, where samples of 3-10 cl can be shared, which gives loads of options to try lots of different stuff, also now a member at SMWS in Denmark and beside Whisky festivals and distillery visits I've now tried more then 3.000 + different whiskies, and the journey continues....

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.
