The Balvenie Peat Week 14-Year 2003 Vintage

They had me at Peat. For one week a year, since 2002, The Balvenie distillery dedicates itself to using 100% Highland peat to dry out their barley. And no, this isn’t just another smoky whisky, unlike the pungent taste of Islay Peat, Highland peat takes on a sweeter approach. It is a whisky that is…

The Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve

The Glenlivet 12 year-old is one of my go to everyday drinking whiskies. The name Glenlivet speaks for itself. So when I heard that Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve is slowly replacing the 12 year-old, I was taken a back. No, this is not a Halloween prank (for those that didn’t know), it’s happening. Founder’s Reserve was…

The Glenrothes: Bourbon Cask,Vintage and Sherry Cask Reserve

Glenrothes is a Speyside whisky I have never written about so when I saw a trio sample of their Bourbon Cask Reserve, Vintage Reserve and Sherry Cask Reserve, buying it was a no brainer. And if you think you’ve never tried anything from them either but have tried Cutty Sark before, then you’ve tried it……

Glenlivet 18 year-old

Happy New Year! We are kicking 2016 off with a brand that doesn’t need an introduction, Glenlivet. To be honest, this is a brand I have truly come to appreciate and enjoy within recent years. Within the Glenlivet range I have tasted the 12, 15, 16 Nadurra Cask Strength and the 21 year-old Archive. My…

Macallan 25 year-old Scotch

Thursday night while out for drinks with my boyfriend we spotted The Macallan 25 in the menu and we just had to try it. Macallan is a brand name everyone has heard off even if they aren’t fans of Scotch. Before I tell you about my experience with this 25 year-old whisky, you must know…

Mortlach Special Strength

When I travel, I always like to bring back with me a new type of whisky I’ve not had before. Last week I returned back from Spain and luckily, our flight layover happened to be in London, so I got the chance to stop at their World of Whiskies duty free shop. It was as…

The Glenlivet 12 year-old

Even if you aren’t a whisky drinker I am certain that you’ve heard of The Glenlivet. It’s a classic, very well known brand that in my opinion new/first-time whisky drinkers first gravitate towards. No, this is not the first time I’ve written about The Glenlivet, but it is the first time I am posting about…

The Balvenie Caribbean Cask 14 year-old

Happy New Year! I am very much looking forward to this New Year and will be kicking off the first blog of 2015 with Balvenie’s 14 year-old Caribbean Cask. My intro to this brand was with Balvenie PortWood 21 year-old and that was followed by the amazing Balvenie DoubleWood 17 year-old. To read more info…

Gordon and MacPhail Series Post 3 of 6: Glenlivet 15 year-old

We are just two days away from holiday! I am almost done with my shopping list and I am definitely looking forward to spending time with family, but also, having a few days away from work. Today I am going to post my third post on my Gordon & MacPhail (G&M) whisky series. The first…

Glenlossie 19 years – The Maltman

The first time I heard of Glenlossie was when the dram I am writing about was placed in front of me to taste. It was a whisky that completely surprised, but before I fully begin to talk about Glenlossie I first need to mention The Maltman. The Maltman is a part of the Meadowside Blending…
