2001 Hepburn’s Choice Bowmore 14 Years Review

2001 Hepburn’s Choice Bowmore 14 Years Review

The 2001 Hepburn’s Choice Bowmore 14 Years is a K&L single barrel selection and came highly recommended by several people whose tastes I often align with. Combine that with the fact that I like almost every IB Bowmore I come across I decided to throw down my $83 ($95 after tax) and give it a…

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…

Bowmore Devil’s Casks Batch 2 Review

Bowmore Devil’s Casks Batch 2 Review

Bowmore Devil’s Casks Batch 2 is the follow-up to what is my favorite, recent, Bowmore OB release. The Devil’s Casks Batch 1 fully enthralled me and I took my time slowly draining the bottle which continued to change and morph over the time it took to finally kill it. I recently had the great fortune…

Bowmore 12 Review

Bowmore 12 Review

Bowmore 12 is exactly what it sounds like, a 12-year-old Bowmore. On their site Bowmore doesn’t divulge what kind of casks they use for their twelve year old, but when doing the tasting I got some lighter notes that remind me of sherry barrels and in reading other reviews and opinions online others had a similar…

10 Everyday Objects Made Better With Whiskey

10 Everyday Objects Made Better With Whiskey

The first thing I’ll say is that everything below will be better with a tasty tipple in hand, but then what in life isn’t? Public intoxication and open container tickets obviously come to mind, but outside of illegal activities there isn’t much in life that can’t be made at least a smidgen better with a…

Malt Nuts: Ben Nevis Tasting

Malt Nuts: Ben Nevis Tasting

A few weeks ago the Malt Nuts got together once again to investigate and celebrate a distillery we all know and love… Ben Nevis. The typical fare of food, conversation and good vibes surrounded us as we made our way through the expressions the members brought. Being so close to the holidays there was a…

Bowmore Small Batch Review

Bowmore Small Batch Review

Bowmore Small Batch is 100% aged in ex-Bourbon casks and when I first tried it at a Bowmore tasting (2013, shortly after its 2012 UK launch) I quite enjoyed it. In-fact it was my favorite thing we had that night at the tasting. A few months later I tried it at a whisky festival and…

Port Charlotte Islay Barley Review

Port Charlotte Islay Barley Review

Furthering their “Terroir Matters” experiments Bruichladdie released this whisky, the Port Charlotte Islay Barley, which is a blend of barley from six different farms on the island of Islay. It was then aged, from what I can tell, in ex-bourbon barrels for almost 8 years if it went straight from the barrel to the glass…

Port Charlotte Scottish Barley Review

Port Charlotte Scottish Barley Review

Before Jim McEwan retired he was adamant about telling the story that “Terroir Matters” when it comes to barley and both this Port Charlotte Scottish Barley its counterpart the Islay Barley resulted from those location based barley experiments. I was a little skeptical about it at the beginning, I thought the distillation process would likely…

Malt Nuts: Dufftown Tasting

Malt Nuts: Dufftown Tasting

A few weeks back the Malt Nuts gathered to tackle the often overlooked Dufftown distillery. Outside some of the Singleton of Dufftown releases I’ll readily admit I haven’t had much more than a passing exposure to Dufftown. It’s one of the distilleries that just don’t come up too often in polite, or even impolite, whisky…
