Mortlach Revamped: 12yo, 14yo, 16yo 20yo

If you’ve followed my musings on Edinburgh Whisky Blog for the last few years, you’ll probably remember one of the last articles I wrote on Mortlach, where I aired my thoughts on the distillery’s last range, which consisted of a ‘Rare Old’ NAS expression, an 18 year old and a 25 year old. Safe to [...]...

Tullibardine The Murray marsala Cask Finish

Tullibardine have continued apace with adding another expression to their Marquess Collection with the release of the marsala Cask Finish. Just a few months ago they released a Châteauneuf-du-Pape cask finish, which wasn’t quite to my taste (wine finishes aren’t quite my thing) but having sampled a number of marsala-influenced whiskies in the last 12-18 [...]...

GreatDrams Single Cask Series: Craigellachie Invergordon

If you read this pokey wee whisky blog then there’s every chance you’ll also read Greg Dillon’s hugely comprehensive GreatDrams website. Greg and I first met electronically when he commented on an article I posted nearly six years ago, when I toured Glenfiddich as part of a stag do; he was on the lookout for [...]...

Bruichladdich Octomore 9 Dialogos

Octomore. No other word strikes as much fear into the heart of a peat-o-phobe as much as this one. Bruichladdich’s super heavy-peated spirit has been run through the stills since 2002, and we’re now on to the ninth series of the range. As with previous batches, Bruichladdich are all about transparency and detail to the [...]...

The Glenrothes Soleo Collection

There’s been a bit of a shake up at The Glenrothes recently – gone are the vintages and in come regular age statements. I quite like the whole ‘vintage’ notion; to me it subconsciously emphasises the passage of time and reinforces the painstaking nature of waiting for whisky to mature and reach its peak. Picking [...]...

Duncan Taylor – The Octave Collection

Following on from my review of AD Rattray’s ‘The Octave Project’, we have another of these ‘before and after’ experiments to get our teeth into today. Although, I shouldn’t really call it an experiment. The guys at Duncan Taylor have been finishing whisky in octaves for over forty five years, and have arguably been doing [...]...

Do you know your chukkas from your mallets? Or your divot stomping from your ride offs? Then read on my friend, for this article is going to be right up your tailshot… I’m talking about polo, of course, and in particular the long standing relationship between this centuries old, horseback, royalty-attracting sport and the Royal [...]...

Benromach Château Cissac Bordeaux Wood Finish 2010

That’s a lot of words for the title of whisky, but in reality it’s actually quite straight forward. The folks at Benromach have expanded their Wood Finish portfolio by releasing a new expression, the Château Cissac Bordeaux Wood Finish 2010. This whisky will sit alongside the Hermitage and Sassicaia wood finishes, with a previous version [...]...
