Quite different from the Peacock, obviously more sherry casks were used for this edition. A good malt, but I prefer the fruitier character of the Peacock. – Rating: 83/100

Some Whisky Blogs Not To Miss

Almost a year has passed since this site went online. Shortly after I published a list of 5 Essential Whisky Websites that were top of the crop at that date in my opinion. So I thought it was time to revisit that topic and write a new list, this time with a focus on whisky blogs.

Another fine malt from this often overlooked distillery. It is both gentle and complex at the same time. A great aperitive whisky to open up your senses. – Rating: 84/100

Auchentoshan Distillery Visit

June 3, 2010

After my week on Islay I spent three days in Glasgow. Glasgow? Wasn’t there a whisky distillery somewhere nearby? Actually I had passed it when the coach from Kennacraig came into Glasgow on the Great Western Road, not far from Erskine Bridge.

Sikkim Black Cat Rum

This rum has a nose to die for, but it is a bit weaker on the palate. Exotic provenance but a quite decent (and very inexpensive) rum. – Rating: 80/100
