Rosebank 10yo 1992/2002 (46%, Murray McDavid, Bourbon Cask, MM1413)

Long time no Rosebank. It has been a long time since I reviewed a 1990 Rosebank, bottled by indie giants Gordon & MacPhail. That one was pretty good, it scored a healthy 88 points. 488 more words

Murray McDavid 2002 Bowmore 8 year

RATING: A- This Bowmore is really special, a powerful sherried nose that is sweet and entices you to take the dip. The palate is full of barbecue and campfire marshmallows with a touch of s’mores. 29 more words

Lagavulin 1984-1999 - Murray McDavid

A few years ago I bought half a bottle of this from Jeroen Koetsier, aka Fullproof when he was selling some samples and such. It took me a while to empty it, but I was in no rush to finish some rare independent Lagavulin which actually states that it is Lagavulin on the bottle. 247 more words

Whisky Fair Limburg (2/2)

Yesterday was for the general impression of the Whisky Fair, today will be about some of the whiskies we had there. We made sure to taste a mix of new and old releases, since it’s all nice to taste something from way before you were ever put on this planet, but I also go to festivals to decide which bottles I want. 796 more words
