Glenfiddich 18 Review

Glenfiddich 18 Review

Glenfiddich 18 is a lot like the Glenfiddch 12 in that it’s a combination of ex-Sherry and ex-Bourbon barrels. The biggest difference is that it’s just aged for longer though from the taste I’d say that it also has a bit more sherry in it. So 50% more age and possibly a bit more sherry. In Glenfiddich’s… Continue!

Glenfiddich 14 Review

Glenfiddich 14 Review

Glenfiddich 14 is one of the few 100% ex-Bourbon cask offerings Glenfiddich offers. The more notable of course is the tremendous Glenfiddich 15 Cask Strength from the late 90s / early 2000s. Typically Glenfiddich has at least a bit of sherry in it which changes the spirit by making it sweeter and richer. The use… Continue!

Glenfiddich The Original Review

Glenfiddich The Original Review

My first criticism of Glenfiddich The Original is its 40% delivery. I have several Glenfiddichs from the 70s and 80s and they’re all delivered at 43% which is the very least this should be released at, especially given the $100+ price tag. Though this is really my biggest problem with Glenfiddich on the whole. They… Continue!

Brora 30 Years Review

Brora 30 Years Review

Like many whisky geeks I REALLY enjoy Brora and this Brora 30 Years is, obviously, no exception. Because of its crisp and balanced nature it’s gained a legendary status and cult following throughout the whisky community along with its more oily and brooding step-sibling Port Ellen. Between the two I’m more of a Port Ellen… Continue!

1973 The Dragon Orkney Pure Malt Review

1973 The Dragon Orkney Pure Malt Review

Coming across bottles of The Dragon Orkney Pure Malt is no small feat. They were bottled by S & J D Robertson group in Kirkwall and all I can find out about them online is that they’re into “Investing in local business and renewable energy projects: commercial and residential rental properties.” They don’t have a website,… Continue!

Highland Park Ice Review

Highland Park Ice Review

Highland Park Ice Edition is the first of a two park limited edition series from Highland Park that starts with the creation of the world (Ice) and ends with its destruction (Fire). In Norse mythology the ice giant Ymir was brought into existence when the edge of the Niflheim (ice realm) was melted by Muspelheim… Continue!

Bowmore Devil’s Casks Batch 3 Review

Bowmore Devil’s Casks Batch 3 Review

Bowmore Devil’s Casks Batch 3 is different from batches one and two in two main ways. #1 it’s NAS whereas the other two carried a 10 year age statement. #2 it’s aged in Oloroso and PX barrels instead of just the Oloroso barrels. Which is fully explained below. In Bowmore’s Words: Bowmore Devil’s Casks Batch… Continue!
