BattleScotch! The Dalmore with Goran & Dan

We haven’t done a BattleScotch in a long time, and this is the perfect set up. Since The Dalmore is so iterative, it will be interesting to see how their various finishes compare directly to each other. Here’s what we thought: nose Dan – 15y Simon – 15y Goran – 15y neat Dan – Gran

The Dalmore 18y with Dan & Goran

The last of the new stuff, the last of the Dalmore Vial Sampler. The Dalmore 18y. Briefly, since we’ve been here before, this appears to be of the same origin as the 12y and the 15y, with different finishes for different lengths.  Once again into super fancy sherry butts, which is not the name of

BattleScotch! Tomatin Spanish Sherry 12y v 15y v Oloroso 18y with Dan

BattleScotch! Tomatin Stillmen’s Choice Edition! Aw yeah aw yeah! It wouldn’t be a reasonably priced selection of delicious single malt scotches without us wringing one more post out of it.

Glenfiddich 18y Batch 3088 with Ryan, Matt & Goran

It’s been a while but we’ve come back to Glenfiddich, thanks to my good friend Matt. Last time, we looked at their web presence and were a little underwhelmed with the drink. This time is different. A little bit of history. Actually, a lot of history. The first distillation apparently occurred Christmas Day 1887, which

Highland Park 18y with Katherine at L’ile Noire

First round at L’ile Noire, and… well, you remember how in the Highland Park 12y review I said I was saving up my pennies for the 18y?  I’m not anymore. There’s nothing out and out wrong with the scotch, and if you weren’t familiar with the 12y you’d probably enjoy it.  But it doesn’t taste
