2002 Signatory Bowmore 11 Years Review

2002 Signatory Bowmore 11 Years Review

Yes this 2002 Signatory Bowmore 11 Years sold out nearly 4 years ago and no you can’t get it now. This means I will inevitably get a comment or three essentially saying “why are you reviewing something that no one can buy?” Simply put it’s so you know to keep your eyes open for future… Continue!

Bowmore Mashmen’s Selection Review

Bowmore Mashmen’s Selection Review

Bowmore Mashmen’s Selection is a distillery-only release of 1,500 bottles that came from a combination of five 1st fill ex-bourbon barrels that were all distilled on May 3rd 1999 and aged for 14 years. It was bottled at full cask strength and non-chill filtered. The one thing I couldn’t find out is if they used… Continue!

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!

Kavalan Solist PX Sherry Review

Kavalan Solist PX Sherry Review

Kavalan Solist PX Sherry is another one of those whiskies that I wish I had a whole bottle of. I’m not begrudging the sample mind you, but it’s kind of like the mythical drug dealer who gives you the first free taste just to get you hooked – and now I am. I want more… Continue!

Knob Creek 25th Anniversary Review

Knob Creek 25th Anniversary Review

Knob Creek 25th Anniversary is a series of single barrel Knob Creek releases being put out by Jim Beam to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the brand which was originally created by Fed Noe’s father Booker Noe. Each bottle of the Knob Creek 25th Anniversary is delivered at full cask strength and non-chill filtered which… Continue!

Rebel Yell 10 Years Single Barrel 2017 Review

Rebel Yell 10 Years Single Barrel 2017 Review

I absolutely loved the cask I got in 2016 and the Rebel Yell 10 Years Single Cask 2017 is following fairly close behind its predecessor. Like last year’s release, and all other Rebel Yell releases, this is a wheated whiskey created by Heaven Hill; presumably using the same wheated whiskey recipe as their Old Fitzgerald… 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!

Lark Rum Cask Finish Review

Lark Rum Cask Finish Review

Lark Rum Cask Finish is the second whisky I’ve had from this little distillery in Tasmania – the first one being the Lark Single Cask which was… ok. Which is also how I felt about this one as you can see from the score above. In Flaviar’s Words: Lark Rum Cask Finish “Lark Rum Cask… Continue!
