A Fingerprint - Benromach 1976 and Benromach 10YO

Tasting Two Benromachs  - Benromach 10YO and Benromach 1976

Back on the tasting bandwagon with a couple of whiskies from a distillery I particularly enjoy, Benromach. I visited Benromach in 2012 where I had the chance to try many of their whiskies and meet the passionate people that run the distillery. Owned by Gordon and Macphail, Benromach has been putting out some really decent expressions in the past few years, and they have recently gone on a campaign to identify the 'fingerprint' that connects older expressions of Benromach and the ones that the distillery now produces since their takeover. G&M have always been passionate about whisky and history, and it is their passion for this heritage that has led them to model their style on what they believe the classic old Speyside 'peated' style would have been like.

So what better way to identify this fingerprint than to try two Benromachs side by side, one older one and one newer one? So here it is, a tasting of the Benromach 10YO and a very revered 1976 vintage!

Tasting Two Indie Bowmores - One 'Sherried', One 'Bourboned'

Tasting Two Indie Bowmores - One Sherry-Cask Matured, One Bourbon Matured

New Bowmores from the late 1990s onwards have always been very decent whiskies to me, and we are seeing more of them turn up in independent bottlings, and now, with the Devil's Cask, 100 Proof, Springtide etc, we see that Bowmore is also officially releasing many decent whiskies to the market. I do hope to see them regain that glorious footing they had in the old realm of whisky greatness.

Tasting New Cadenheads - Tomatin and Dalmore

A Pair of New Cadenhead Small Batches - Dalmore and Tomatin

Let's move away from the world of old whiskies to something more current, yet decidedly old school. The good people at Quaich Bar have been quietly going about their business these few months, and have now started to slowly bring in some independent bottlings from great bottlers like Duncan Taylor and Cadenhead. As distributors for Springbank and its whiskies, it comes as no surprise, then, that Cadenhead, which is also owned by Springbank, is one of the new bottlers on board. 

The crown jewel (in my humble opinion) of Cadenhead's whiskies the past year, would have to be its small batch release. Driven by Mark Watt, General Manager of Cadenhead, and inspired by the old school black dumpy bottles from the Cadenhead in the decades passed that have now passed into legend, these small batch releases are causing waves and stirs in the whisky world. I have tried a few already to date, so its high time to start reviewing them. Let's start with a very unusual pair from two slightly less known distilleries, Dalmore and Tomatin.

Islay whiskies from the years gone by have always been very stunning and interesting whiskies, so why not end our sojourn of the world of old whiskies with whiskies from two very famous old names of the island... Laphroaig and Bowmore?

Old Whiskies Chronicles - Bring on the Big Boys of Glenlivet and Macallan

Now let's slowly climb up the whisky ladder to two very big names in the single malt world. The Macallan and The Glenlivet distilleries have been flag bearers for single malt scotch for decades now, and many people have stated that it was their quality whisky that brought many people to a crazed following of their brands, more so for Macallan of course. Would they live up to the hype?
