Glengoyne 21 1996 Cadenhead’s Small Batch

Thanks to /u/devoz for sharing a sample with me. If you haven’t read about the marking issue here, please go to this link and read up. They do an amazing job of writing. So there you have it. If you didn’t click the link above, I’ll say it quickly: There’re two different wineries in France with a name Lafitte. One is Lafite and one is Lafitte. I’m thinking of… Continue reading Glengoyne 21 1996 Cadenhead’s Small Batch

Glengoyne 18

Thanks to /u/Davyj0ne5  for this dram. I recently figured out I had a couple Glengoyne samples around. So I finally got around to trying Glengoyne 12 for the last review. Skipping over the other middle child at fifteen years, we have Glengoyne 18. How has it changed, save for six more years? Well, I’m glad I asked myself just now. I’m great. Instead of using ex-bourbon casks, like… Continue reading Glengoyne 18

Glengoyne 12

Thanks to /u/Davyj0ne5  for this dram So here’s an issue. Each year, there are standard whiskies that come out. And the same ones come out time and time, which makes sense.

The finale of my series that I called “Scotch Malts, Wife’s Selection”, in which my wife went through my backlog of SMWS (Scotch Malt Whisky Society) samples that I hadn’t reviewed yet, poured them blind, and then I reviewed them blind. It’s in past tense because this is the last one, you see. Oh, and because I kinda… Continue reading Glengoyne SMWS 123.10 “Sweet treats on deck”

Glengoyne 10

Nearing the end of our trip, and wanted to try something different. We were in Birmingham, and the hidden away Neo-Tudor building seemed to be calling us from the ultra modernistic mall (where I stupidly passed up buying Kilchoman 100% Islay 2nd release).. The bar itself was really nice, and looked old, especially for us New Worlders. The whisky selection was a little random, at… Continue reading Glengoyne 10
