Review: Glen Spey 35 y.o. Maltbarn 1977

The ultra-rare whisky from Glen Spey is one of the grassiest and greenest out there, usually paired with vanilla, licorice and soft nutty aromas. A batch of 1977 casks seems to

Review: Highland Park 1995 G&M Reserve – real value

Review: Tomintoul 33 y.o. OB 43%

Time for another banana dram, a lead aroma in many older Tomintoul (esp. 1966/67). This bottling comes from the late 1970ies and is marketed quite well as I could see it showcased

Review: Miltonduff 29 y.o. The First Editions 1982

Miltonduff often is a good choice from the ’second-tier‘ distilleries – if such a term does justice to any distillery in the first place – some are just not marketed and overlooked. My favourite Miltonduff expression is a 1966 from

Review: Two more excellent Port Ellen from 1982

Following up on the recent Port Ellen comparison (click here), I feel like comparing another couple of this beautiful ‚lost distillery-dram‘  in a head-to-head. Same vintage (1982), different casks, rare editions. Let’s go:
