Linkwood 28 1987 Cadenhead Small Batch

Thanks to /u/xreekinghavocx for pouring me a dram of this. Here we are, more mystery reviews, done in December as part of an Advent Calendar made up by my wife of my own samples. It’ Advent Day #18, just in case you’re having trouble following, what with my other whisky samples, tastings, and pretty baller-ass whisky life, when I think about it. I’m pretty happy with it… Continue reading Linkwood 28 1987 Cadenhead Small Batch

Mortlach 24 1991 Signatory Cask Strength Collection

Thanks to /u/cake_my_day for pouring me this dram This is one of the ongoing review series I’m calling “Holy Crap I did too many of these at once and it comes across as muddled at best”, or rather, Day 13 of the Advent Calendar my wife put together for me in December that I’m only now posting.

Let’s see what day 11 brings,… Continue reading Glen Spey 27 1986 A.D. Rattray Cask Collection

Mosstowie 31 1979 Signatory Cask Strength Collection

Thanks to @scotchguy.to for this dram. It’s exciting to try a new whisky, from a new “distillery”. Wait, why did I put that in quotes? Turns out if you go looking for a Mosstowie distillery, you’ll find Miltonduff. And if you have a date in Constantinople they’ll be waiting in Istanbul. Also, they may have been arrested by the government. Those crazy buggers over at Miltonduff decided… Continue reading Mosstowie 31 1979 Signatory Cask Strength Collection

Probably Speyside’s Finest 41 1967 Old Malt Cask Douglas Laing

When approaching these advent calendars, one thinks “Yeah, it’ll be fun to have a dram a day.” And unless you typically have just one whisky each night (or morning, no judging, some of us work nights), it seems doable. However, around Advent Day #9, I started realizing that I take breaks. Add to that the idea of posting these the day that you try them,… Continue reading Probably Speyside’s Finest 41 1967 Old Malt Cask Douglas Laing
