Two Golden Glen Grants for the USA

Two Great Glen Grants - Prime Malt 21YO and 27YO

Ah Old Glen Grants, something else in my opinion. These Glen Grants from the 1960s through to the 1980s have all been fabulous sherried whiskies. These two expressions were actually bottled for the USA. It seems that the USA is increasingly become the next big place where whiskies are starting to pop up in houses and shops around the country. These two whiskies were bottled probably in the 1980s under the 'Prime Malt' label, this makes the distillate around the nice 1960s period. So here we go, the Prime Malt Selection No. 21 and the Prime Malt Selection No. 27.

Happy New Year 2015 - With the Legendary Donini Set

Happy New Year! With the Donini Set...

A happy 2015 to one and all! SGwhisky wishes all a great 2015 ahead, and hope that everyone had a wonderful end to the year. SGwhisky's main resolution this year: Write more reviews! It might mean a bit more truncated posts and perhaps less whiskies per post, but either way, we aim to come up with at least a few tastings a week. 

To kick off the year 2015, let us start with perhaps the most stunning sets I had the honour of trying in late 2014. These babies are really rare but are also a unique and rare piece of whisky history. The following four whiskies were created by Gordon & Macphail in the early to mid 1980s for Donini Imports in Italy. All bottled at cask strength no less, which once again shows just how far ahead of the time these whiskies were. Notice the really nice line 'Aquavite di Cereali' at the bottom of the labels. These four whiskies have been available by the glass (only as a set of four) at the Auld Alliance for about half a year now and these were my holiday drams to myself! So here we go.. the Donini Set: Mortlach 1969, Caol Ila 1969, Laphroaig 1968, Port Ellen 1969

A very Happy New Year's eve to all.

Some have not be scored yet and will be updated as soon as posts come up. However, the best whiskies must be praised first! Here is the great little list of the best of the best 2014.

The Countdown to 2015 - SGwhisky's Top Drams of 2014: Great Old-Newbies (Or New-Oldies)

The Countdown to 2015 - SGwhisky's Top Drams of 2014: Two Great Old-Newbies (Or New-Oldies)

Time to move into 'big-boy' territory for our countdown to 2015 with two stellar drams that are 'Old-Newbies', whiskies that were bottled pretty recently (ok, maybe give or take 10 years) and have now been regarded as pretty darn good stuff. These, sadly, are not too cheap and are hard to find by the bottle, so finding a bar which stocks it by the glass would be your best bet. So here we go, the Benriach 1968/2005 and the Ardbeg 21YO Committee Reserve.

The Countdown to 2015 - SGwhisky's Top Drams of 2014: Entry Level Non-Scotch Whiskies

The Countdown to 2015 - SGwhisky's Top Drams of 2014: Entry Level Non-Scotch Whiskies

Up next on our countdown to 2015, entry level whiskies not from Scotland. Yes we are going beyond the shores of Scotland to find the world's top value whisky. The whisky world was taken by storm yet again in the Malt Maniacs Awards 2014, when Taiwan and Japan once again pounced to win top honours. Whilst the winning whiskies are extremely highly priced, and probably not for everyone's tastes, maybe there are some entry level or at least cheaper, more affordable options around from these two countries? Indeed there are, so here are two of the best, the Nikka Coffey Malt and the Kavalan Solist Vinho Barrique.
