Longrow 9 2007 Sauternes & Longrow 15 2001 Chardonnay/Bourbon Single Cask

Thanks /u/Orehnmadgib for pouring these for me. Continuing on with a different type of review series, I had a bunch of Campbeltown samples, felt like I wanted to review more of them, and put two and two together and didn’t end up with three. Which is for the best, what with working with numbers every day. Longrow is the big peat energy distillery of Campbeltown at the… Continue reading Longrow 9 2007 Sauternes & Longrow 15 2001 Chardonnay/Bourbon Single Cask

Hazelburn 13 2003 Oloroso & Hazelburn 9 Sauternes Single Cask

Thanks /u/Orehnmadgib for pouring these for me. While going through my samples I realized that I had quite a few Campbeltown samples. And that I hadn’t drunk Campbeltown in awhile. I should fix that.

Inspired by /u/tomodera‘s recent Arran-pocalypse posts (Part 1, Part 2), I decided to do a smaller multi of the Arran drams I haven’t posted here in the past. It’s kind of like the B-movie version of his post… it’s Piranha … Continue reading Arran-mageddon: 12 reviews of Arran single casks, LEs and crazy finishes

Caol Ila Reviews [1000th whisky network review/600th Scotch review]

Nearly 5 years ago I posted my first review on reddit, with the intent of starting to review whisky. I had just come back from visiting the UK for the first of three trips. On two more trips I would do 50 reviews in the UK to make up for the 0 on the first trip, as well as missing some rarer whiskies there. I’ve… Continue reading Caol Ila Reviews [1000th whisky network review/600th Scotch review]
