    87

    Deep rich color greets the eye; to be followed by a nose that mingles brown sugar, nettles, sweet clotted cream, rancid pasture butter, faint floral in the background. Mouth: Sweet attack that is creamy… read more

    86

    After reading a few reviews recommending this as a starter whisky took the plunge and bought a bottle instead of my usual bourbons. Poor blends were the norm in my house when growing up and the smell … read more

    What fascinates me the most about my hobby is that I will routinely stumble across some facts and information that I did not know about before. Some times it is through a learned friend. But mostly it is… read more

    By talexander on 30th Jul 20152015-07-30T23:18:00

    87

    This is what the Bruichladdich website describes this bottling as. What does that mean? For that matter, what do any of the overtly-descriptive tasting notes mean on their site, anyway? I've mentioned … read more

    83

    This is only the 10th Blair Athol that I try. It has a nice age with its 26 years on a bourbon cask, distilled in the year in which I purchased my first moped. It was bottled by Wemyss and got the name… read more

    In the Cask Strength Collection, Signatory from Pitlochry bottles single casks at cask strength. In this case I will try a Blair Athol from 1989, that still retains an ABV of 50% after 22 long years on… read more

    A few years ago, this Blair Athol was released in Signatory’s Un-Chillfiltered Collection. That means no chill filtration and drinking strength, in this case 13%. For this release, two casks were married,… read more
