Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 246: The Celts 22 Year Old 1996 for MMM
For our second single cask release in the Tribe Series, Jurgen Robyns designed another great label: the fierce Celts. And as with the Picts, our previous release, it is again a secret Speyside scotch, from a distillery that was founded in 1892 in the valley of the deer, literally a stone’s throw away from the famous distillery that produced our Picts. Nuff said! It matured on a bourbon cask for 22 long years. And it is simply marvelous, thank you very much.

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 247: Auchentoshan The Bartender’s Malt 02
I felt the first Bartender’s Malt was somewhat mediocre and should be seen only as a malt to be used in cocktails. Last year the second edition finally arrived, again the result of a so-called New Malt Order contest. Twelve bartenders from five different countries were responsible for the composition. The youngest in the mix is 6 years old, while the oldest is more than 40! Again a whole range of casks was used and it was bottled at 50%.

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 248: Auchentoshan The Bartender’s Malt Saint Petersburg Edition
It is not an easy feat to find this edition of the Auchentoshan Bartender’s Malt, for it was only launched in Russia and is actually single sherry butt #134. This 12 year old malt – the Saint Petersburg Edition –is bottled at 47%. The cask was selected by bartender Kirill Ivashkov. It was a gift from Kit Yalta – brand ambassador from Moscow – when he visited me in October 2018. Nice detail: I helped Kit land that job so many years ago. What goes around, comes around.
