There isn’t a lot about the Aberfeldy 19 Years Manager’s Dram online. In fact, the most useful information I found came from The Whiskey Exchange who said it’s “a rare Manager’s Dram bottling produced for United Distillers’ staff only in October 1991”.

2006 Single Cask Nation Girvan 10 Years Review is the sixth and final SCN retail release I’ve been able to try and like so many other young grain whiskies that have came before it it’s just… just… well it’s just there. Young grain whisky has an essence to it that can be a bit tough… Continue!
Of all the Amontillado cask-aged whisky I’ve had this Kavalan Solist Amontillado Sherry is my favorite, but it still only gets a B+ for my tastes. Which isn’t an indictment on Kavalan in any way, but more a statement on me not caring much for Amontillado sherry. Even the regular sherry I’m not a massive… Continue!
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!
This Talisker 35 Years was part of the 2012 Diageo Special Releases which was the 16th time Talisker had been included in the yearly DSR program.

I tried this Kavalan Port Cask at a friend’s place recently which I was both excited and reluctant to do after my experience with the Kavalan Concertmaster a few years ago. It was my least favorite of the night and came across far too sweet for me to really enjoy it. The people in our… 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!
Peg Leg Porker is a BBQ restaurant located in Nashville, TN owned by Pitmaster Carey Bringle who lost his leg to cancer at a young age; hence the name. Peg Leg Porker 8 Years is his second release of sourced whiskey and its launch in 2016 garnered almost as much acclaim as his wildly successful… 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. In Single Cask Nation’s Words: 2008 Single Cask Nation Ardmore… Continue!
