2008 Single Cask Nation Glenrothes 8 Years hails from one of my least favorite malt distilleries; there’s something about Glenrothes that just never does it for me. Looking at my notes I’ve had 5 different releases from them and have never had one that blew me away. Not a single one has done anything for… Continue!
Peg Leg Porker 12 Years is the third release from Pitmaster Carey Bringle. The first release was a NAS cask strength release and the second was the Peg Leg Porker 8 Years I reviewed yesterday. All of the whiskeys released so far have been sourced from George Dickel and undergo a unique process before bottling.… Continue!
I’m enjoying trying the new SCN offerings like this 2008 Single Cask Nation Glentauchers 8 years because I’m getting to try distilleries I haven’t spent much time getting to know. Which truly is the beauty of independent bottlers, they often source off the beaten path and can find gems that might have otherwise been overlooked.… Continue!
2008 Single Cask Nation Ardmore 8 Years is another release from the initial retail offerings put out by Single Cask Nation. Being a single cask there’s only 228 bottles available for the entire country so if this review sounds intriguing you need to act fast.

We set our sights on indie bottlings aged… Continue!

Part four of Ben Nevis week and we’ve increased the age statement by another year with this 1997 Montgomerie’s Ben Nevis 19 Years. Though unlike the first four this one isn’t cask strength. Though like all the Ben Nevis I’ll be reviewing this week it is non-chillfiltered and has no color additives. Bottled at 46%… Continue!
Part three of Ben Nevis week finds us tasting the 1997 Pearls of Scotland Ben Nevis 18 years. Another whisky also means another little bit about the Ben Nevis distillery you might not have known. Did you know that from 1955 – 1971 Ben Nevis was able to make a single blend because it had… Continue!
The label reads 1996 Exclusive Malts Ben Nevis 17 Years, but it’s actually 18. Distilled on October 21st 1996 and bottled in July of 2015, if they’d let it sit for about 3 more months it could have been bottled as a 19 year. But alas it’s just a misprinted 17 year… poor us 🙂… Continue!
