2001 Signatory Bowmore 12 Years Review

2001 Signatory Bowmore 12 Years Review

  2001 Signatory Bowmore 12 Years is the bigger brother of the 2002 Signatory Bowmore 11 Years I wrote about last week and aside from the 1 year age difference the biggest difference is the proof. The 11 was bottled at a respectable 46% while this lovely lady is bottled at a ripping 59.1%. This… Continue!

LAWS: Exploring That Boutique-y Whisky Company

At an undisclosed location located in Los Angeles a clandestine group of whisk(e)y enthusiasts recently gathered to explore nine ultra premium expressions from an independent bottler we’ve all been curious about; That Boutique-y Whisky Company. If the name isn’t familiar the brightly colored and whimsically illustrated labels should be. Since bounding on the IB If… Continue!

Mid 90s Bowmore 17 Review

Mid 90s Bowmore 17 Review

This Mid 90s Bowmore 17 Review is the second sample from the generous Harold which filed the two open slots I had in my tasting notes to create two full weeks of Bowmore. Released in the mid 90s it’s a bit past the massive FWP (French Whore Perfume) problem that Bowmore had in the 80s… Continue!

Malt Nuts Young Laphroaig Tasting

Malt Nuts Young Laphroaig Tasting

The last time the Malt Nuts gathered to taste Laphroaig we did so with Laphroaig all aged from 10 – 15 years old and it was a truly awesome Laphroaig tasting. This young Laphroaig tasting in comparison was fun and interesting and that’s a key difference I think. Can these whippersnappers compare to most of… Continue!

1989 A.D. Rattray Bowmore 23 Years Review

1989 A.D. Rattray Bowmore 23 Years is a fun whisky not just because it’s an indie Bowmore, but because it’s a pre-94 Bowmore. What’s so significant about 1994 you ask? Well if you had read the Malt Nuts Sherried Bowmore Tasting article you’d know 😉 In 1994 Suntory bought Bowmore which was owned by the… Continue!

Early 90s Bowmore 12 Review

Thanks to a kind reader I was able to fill out a second week of Bowmore for y’all which we’ll be kicking off with this sample of early 90s Bowmore 12. Distilled in 1979 the whisky in this sample was bottled in 1991 and don’t let the sample label trick you, this is an OB,… Continue!

2002 Signatory Bowmore 11 Years Review

2002 Signatory Bowmore 11 Years Review

Yes this 2002 Signatory Bowmore 11 Years sold out nearly 4 years ago and no you can’t get it now. This means I will inevitably get a comment or three essentially saying “why are you reviewing something that no one can buy?” Simply put it’s so you know to keep your eyes open for future… Continue!

Bowmore Mashmen’s Selection Review

Bowmore Mashmen’s Selection Review

Bowmore Mashmen’s Selection is a distillery-only release of 1,500 bottles that came from a combination of five 1st fill ex-bourbon barrels that were all distilled on May 3rd 1999 and aged for 14 years. It was bottled at full cask strength and non-chill filtered. The one thing I couldn’t find out is if they used… Continue!
