Dràm Mòr Tomintoul 15

Dràm Mòr Tomintoul 15

Next up is this Tomintoul 15 by Dràm Mòr. I do not think I have ever tasted a Tomintoul, at least not as I can remember, so I do not know what to expect from this whisky. It has a pale lemon colour, spent 15 years in a refill sherry butt, then four months in a...

Dràm Mòr Glen Garioch 8

Dràm Mòr Glen Garioch 8

I have had the pleasure of tasting the 8-year-old Glen Garioch, a Highland distillery near Oldmeldrum in Aberdeenshire, bottled by Dràm Mòr. It was fully matured in a refill bourbon hogshead, bottled at 55 % and is available to purchase from select locations. NoseThe...

Midleton Very Rare 2020

Midleton Very Rare 2020

Everyone who knows me knows about my deep-rooted love for Irish whiskey. That being said, I do not know much about the Midleton releases. Sure, I have tasted a few of them while visiting a variety of bars in Ireland, but I can not say that I have ever tasted one I...

Bunnahabhain 2003 Amontillado

Bunnahabhain 2003 Amontillado

I was invited to join a tasting with North East Whisky Appreciation Society last week, and even though I didn't have the sample pack to join in, I enjoyed the evening with this group. One of the whiskies they tasted was the Bunnahabhain 2003 Amontillado, which ended...

Eiktyrne Quadruple Batch II

Eiktyrne Quadruple Batch II

I was very excited when asked if I wanted to have a taste of Eiktyrne Quadruple Batch II. It is a double distilled single malt whiskey that has seen the inside of four different casks, hence quadruple, being American Virgin Oak (225 litres), Bloodtub Oloroso (40...

The Liberator Small Batch Double Port Finish

The Liberator Small Batch Double Port Finish

I have already reviewed The Liberator Tawny Port Finish, so I am quite excited to be able to try a few more releases from Wayward Irish Spirits. Since I am indeed a new whisky blogger, I made an apparent mistake by actually diving into the sample before photographing...

The Legendary Dark Silkie Smokey Irish Whiskey

The Legendary Dark Silkie Smokey Irish Whiskey

Over the last six months, I have accumulated so many whisky samples that are now just waiting to be tasted and reviewed, that it has become difficult to decide which one to choose. A couple of months ago I received a sample of Sliabh Liag The Legendary Dark Silkie...

Glengoyne 10 Single Cask for Dr Jekyll’s

Glengoyne 10 Single Cask for Dr Jekyll’s

Glengoyne is a distillery I am not very familiar with. Of course, I have tasted a few of their whiskies, and I also have a bottle of Tea Pot Dram in my collection, but I am not very familiar with the brand. Dr Jekyll's in Oslo is one of my favourite whisky bars, and...

Deanston 12 Highland Single Malt

Deanston 12 Highland Single Malt

In early August I received a box of whisky samples from a very sweet friend in Germany, and amongst them was a generous sample of the Deanston 12. This is a whisky I have been curious about for a while, as many people (including Roy from Aqvavitae) seem to be quite...
