I got this bottle just to fill out an order. I like Arran a lot and figured that this might prove a good addition to my cabinet. 392 more words


Arran 14

Originally reviewed on reddit: 09/06/15

The Arran Malt is produced by the only distillery on the Isle of Arran. It’s a relative newcomer, opened in 1995, which I think has worked out well for them. 327 more words

Each of Diageo’s malts has an annually released Distiller’s Edition which is usually the regular whisky which has spent a few extra months in some form of finishing cask that’s supposed to complement its character. 166 more words


Talisker 25

This Talisker is released in one batch every year. As far as I understand this used to also be bottled at cask strength but has sadly been brought down to the Talisker standard 45.8%. 152 more words


Talisker 18

I first tried this one at a Talisker tasting held be Diageo’s importer here. I didn’t take notes then, but it popped up a day or two later in the 2015 Tapuz Blind Tasting Competition and I had no idea what it was. 146 more words


Old Ballantruan 10 Year Old

A lot of people seem to think this is a peated Glenlivet because the bottle says “Speyside Glenlivet”. In actual fact Glenlivet is a particular valley that’s home to several distilleries and way back when many of them labelled themselves as such (the term is much older than “Speyside”) but the popular Glenlivet Distillery got the rights to label themselves as “The Glenlivet” so the others stopped using it much. 280 more words
