Clynelish is a bit of an anomaly in the sense that while it has only been around for slightly less than 50 years, its history is dictated by events which precede its establishment. It is also associated with one of the famous closed distilleries in Scotland, which is another reason for its relative popularity. While […]Read more "Whisky Review #74: Clynelish 1997 16 Years Old PX Finish (Wilson & Morgan Barrel Selection)"
Ahh Balblair, how much I adore thee. Considering how many stellar releases this distillery has churned out over the years, it is rather surprising to see just how underrated it is in the eyes of many. The whiskies which the distillery produces tend to go under the radar for the most part, but sometimes there […]Read more "Whisky Review #72: Balblair 2000 14 Years Old Sherry Cask (TWE Exclusive)"
As this week’s review is the 68th since I started this blog, I have decided to put forth a 40 years old bottling from 1968.

The distillery was founded in 1897 by a group of Inverness-based businessmen who owned the […]Read more "Whisky Review #60: Tomatin 1966 45 Years Old (The Whisky Agency & The Nectar bottling)"

It may also come as a surprise that this is the first time that I’ve actually reviewed a Glenmorangie since starting this blog, but […]Read more "Whisky Review #59: Glenmorangie Signet"
Balblair is one of those distilleries which tends to sit on the periphery of one’s sphere of knowledge in the sense that while you may have heard of the distillery, you would be hard pressed to describe the whiskies that it produced (unless you were a fan, of course). Having delved into some of the […]Read more "Whisky Review #58: Balblair 2004 10 Years Old"
Glengoyne may not be a big distillery (their annual production capacity is approximately 1.1 million litres) and it may not be as well known as some of its peers, but what it lacks in terms of mainstream awareness it more than makes up in terms of the sheer quality of their product. The distillery was […]Read more "Whisky Review #55: Glengoyne 25 Years Old"
