Bowmore 16 Years Port Matured Review

Bowmore 16 Years Port Matured Review

Bowmore 16 Years Port Matured was a limited edition of 18,000 bottles Bowmore released a few years back and I kind of like it… and I kind of don’t. When it comes to port matured whisky there’s a danger of it being too sweet, too cloying and the port overwhelming the spirit. Which is why… Continue!

Bowmore Dorus Mor 10 Years Review

Bowmore Dorus Mor 10 Years Review

Bowmore Dorus Mor 10 Years is a small batch (2,4000 bottles ~ 8 casks) release from Bowmore that’s delivered at a state that’s as close as you can get to drinking straight out of the barrel; full cask strength and non-chill filtered. It’s a release that many folks enjoy and some people go absolutely gaga… Continue!

Cadenhead’s Bowmore 14-Years Review

Cadenhead’s Bowmore 14-Years Review

I haven’t reviewed many Cadenhead’s bottlings on here, but I’ve had more than a few, and like this Cadenhead’s Bowmore 14-Years, they’ve been good… for the most part. They’re among the handful of indie bottlers out there you can almost always grab a random bottle by and be happy with what ends up in your… Continue!

Jura 10 Years Review

Jura 10 Years Review

This is the latest, reconfigured recipe, of the Jura 10 Years. I reviewed the original Jura 10 a few years ago and didn’t much care for it. I found it to be funky and weird but not in the good and interesting way. It carried this strong earthy cumin-like character from nose to finish which… Continue!

Highland Park Valkyrie Review

Highland Park Valkyrie Review

Highland Park Valkyrie is the latest in Highland Park’s NAS Nordic themed extension of their core line; a theme they’ve embraced fully over the last few years. From a branding perspective it feels like Edrington has been shifting HP towards becoming the leader of the “story based whisky” trend that’s quickly become the hallmark of the… Continue!

Peg Leg Porker 12 Years Review

Peg Leg Porker 12 Years Review

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!

2008 Single Cask Nation Glentauchers 8 years Review

2008 Single Cask Nation Glentauchers 8 years Review

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 Review

2008 Single Cask Nation Ardmore 8 Years Review

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. In Single Cask Nation’s Words: 2008 Single Cask Nation Ardmore… Continue!
