Tamdhu Batch Strength Review

Tamdhu Batch Strength Review

Tamdhu Batch Strength 002 is a big burly sherry bomb of a whisky and as you can see by the score above I think it’s great – and for about $99 after tax (in Los Angeles) it’s damn near a steal these days. Seriously. Who else is putting out a 100% sherry cask whisky, that heavily… Continue!

Tamdhu 10 Years Review

Tamdhu 10 Years Review

Tamdhu 10 Years is the flagship single malt from the 121 years old distillery located in the central Speyside region of Scotland. It’s a distillery that’s been through a rough history, as many of the distilleries in Scotland have, and in recent history was mothballed from 2009 – 2012 which is one of the reasons… Continue!

Deanston Virgin Oak Review

Deanston Virgin Oak Review

Deanston Virgin Oak is the first time I’ve really sat down and explored a Deanston whisky over an extended period of time… and I liked it. Though to be upfront I didn’t care for it on my first taste. I thought it was just ok, thought it was a rather standard Speyside so I forgot… Continue!

Malt Nuts: Ledaig Tasting Part 2

Malt Nuts: Ledaig Tasting Part 2

  On the eve of its closing the Malt Nuts rallied to eat, drink and conquer Ledaig… again. This time we focused on older expressions and sherried expressions of Ledaig this evening. We’d already tasted a bunch of young cask strength Tobermory and Ledaig so we had to move it up a notch. We also… Continue!

Malt Nuts: Longmorn Tasting

Malt Nuts: Longmorn Tasting

Another Malt Nuts meeting has come and gone and this time our subject was Longmorn. This venerable Speyside distillery has been around for over a hundred years and while it may not be much of a household name in America it’s been a favorite of the Scottish blenders pretty much since its inception. Fruity and rich… Continue!

Lagavulin 2014 Feis Isles Edition Review

Lagavulin 2014 Feis Isles Edition Review

Lagavulin 2014 Feis Isles Edition is the oldest Lagavulin, age wise, that I’ve tried. I’ve had several Lagavulins from back in the White Horse distilling days, and they were all awesome, but until I was surprised with this by a generous tasting host I haven’t been fortunate to try anything over 16 years old from… Continue!

Lagavulin 12 Review

Lagavulin 12 Review

Lagavulin 12 is technically part of the Diageo Special Editions that get released every year and along with the un-peated Caol Ila it’s among the cheapest of those releases; Brora and Port Ellen being the most expensive by a long shot. It’s a cask strength celebration of the Lagavulin spirit and something that I look… Continue!

Classic of Islay 12 Years Review

Classic of Islay 12 Years Review

Classic of Islay 12 Years is a whisky that was released several years ago and was one of the whiskies we blind tasted at our Malt Nuts Indie Lagavulin Tasting. It’s an older Lagavulin that was put out by an NDP and has since disappeared, but you can still find bottles now and then online and… Continue!

Glenfiddich Reserve Cask Review

Glenfiddich Reserve Cask Review

Glenfiddich Reserve Cask is a 100% sherry cask, solera, offering from Glenfiddich that’s only available in travel retail and some specialty shops around the world. It’s not something that you’ll find lounging on the shelves of your local liquor store, but it’s easy enough to get ahold of at any of the major online, overseas, liquor… Continue!
