It is a well-known fact that Bruichladdich is my favourite distillery and the wealth of expressions which are available to sample makes it an easy proposition whenever I’m at a bar. It was during one of my (increasingly frequent) visits to one of the newest whisky bars in Singapore, The Swan Song, that I noticed […]Read more "Whisky Review #126: Bruichladdich “Oirthir Gaidheal” 1993 16 Years Old (Feis Ile 2009 Bottling)"
And so after another extended hiatus, I’m back! While the inertia has been rather prevalent since the turn of the new year, the reviews continue to be prepared and they will revert to the weekly format going forward. This week’s review focuses on a rather interesting expression from Bruichladdich which was distilled in 2001, matured […]Read more "Whisky Review #124: Elements of Islay Br7"
The whiskies from Bowmore are a varied bunch, with there having been some truly spectacular releases over the decades. While the current core and travel retail ranges have been somewhat lacklustre, it seems that the independent bottlers have had more luck with regard to their releases from the distillery. This week’s review focuses on an […]Read more "Whisky Review #123: Bowmore 1989 21 Years Old (Silver Seal Bottling)"

This would be the first review, with the other following tomorrow afternoon as we prepare to bid farewell to 2017 and usher in […]Read more "Whisky Review #120: SMWS 3.299 “Sweet Smoke On The Water” (Feis Ile 2017 Bottling)"
Laphroaig has always been one of my favourite distilleries and while the core range has been relatively solid, the travel retail exclusives have been somewhat lacklustre (apart from the stellar PX Cask, of course) in recent years. As such, I have been sourcing for independent expressions of Laphroaig (among other Islay distilleries) and have come […]Read more "Whisky Review #112: Laphroaig 2006 11 Years Old (Loch Fyne Whiskies Feis Ile 2017 Release)"
Bunnahabhain has for years been one of the lesser known Islay distilleries and while it has gained more attention over the past few years, the brand still lives in the shadows of the likes of Ardbeg, Bowmore, Lagavulin & Laphroaig. However, it has remained a firm favourite among those who are aware of the distillery’s […]Read more "Whisky Review #109: Bunnahabhain 1980 34 Years Old"
