Best whiskey of the month – December 2014

Congratulations – December’s winner is:

Glendronach – 15 Year Old (Revival)

glendronach 15 year old revival

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Considered as one of the best value for money around”.

As it’s December, I was wondering if any of you readers would like to offer me one of these bottles as a Christmas gift 🙂

Seriously though, go out and get yourself a bottle of this. For the price (just under 50 GBP), you can not go wrong. Reviews of this hit the roof all over the place and its popularity keeps growing.

Amber in colour, this dram with sherry tones is an extremely complex mix of tastes such as walnut, beef, hints of Madeira, soy sauce, maraschino, and more (I told you it was a fantastic but complex set of flavours).

The finish is quite long, with the spices getting bigger until it eventually fades into a jam flavour of fruity blackcurrant. WOW!

Get it here!

You’ve tried the rest, no try the best!

Congratulations – November’s winner is:

Talisker – 10 Year Old (Single Malt)

“Liquid gold …”.

This is an intensely spicy and peaty malt which will bring back memories of walking on the beach on a cold day.
Nose: Powerful peat-smoke with sea-water saltiness, the liquor of fresh oysters, a citrus sweetness.

Warm and intense flavours of smokey pepper and dried fruit, leading to a sweet peppery flavour. Very tasty!

Get it here!

Talisker is popular for a reason – it’s good!

“What can I say … Chivas, I love you!”.

A fabulous Single Grain Scotch Whisky if you can get your hands on it.

Strathclyde is a very sought after Single Grain Scotch whisky which is hard to come by. It has a unique and extra dimension to the Limited Edition Cask Strength range by Chivas brothers. This unique bottling has a delicate citrus flavour which is perfectly balanced with a smooth and sweet toffee taste.

CONNOISSEURS CHOICE (SPEYBURN 1989)

connoisseurs choice GandM

 

 

 

 

“Gordon & MacPhail broke the mold when they made this!”.

A 1989 vintage Speyburn, bottled by Gordon & Macphail as part of their Connoisseurs Choice series. For some this might be on the pricey side but if you have any extra change lying around the house, gather it up and buy a bottle ’cause it’s worth it!

A well balanced and delicate single malt whiskies from Scotland. Quite floral and fruity aroma with minty butterscotch taste.

Get it here!

Best whiskey of the month – August 2014

Congratulations – August’s winner is:

MACKMYRA Brukswhisky (Swedish Malt)

Mackmyra brukswhisky

 

 

 

 

“Sweden!?”, you might say. I say “Yes, Sweden!”.

The only question in my mind was whether or not this would be my favorite whisky from now on. I found everything absolutely perfect, starting from the actual design of the bottle which is truly fantastic and authentic.

Really light and fruity, both in scent and taste. There is a slight hint of smokiness but with the hint of pear butterscotch, the mix of flavours is just amazing.

Get it here!

Long live Swedish Malt!!!

Congratulations – July’s winner is:

TULLIBARDINE Sovereign

Well well well, now here is a taste for the riches.

Having been matured in first fill Bourbon barrels, this balanced whisky exhibits barley, pear and creamy chocolate notes, which develop on the palate with a lingering finish.

Thanks for the samples – I would gladly clean your distillery for a month for a bottle of this! just lovely!

Best whiskey of the month – June 2014

Congratulations – June’s winner is:

TEELING Irish Single Grain Whiskey (WINE CASK)

 

Teeling Single Grain Irish Whiskey

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ireland should be proud of this one, and so should Teeling. This is a smooth and slightly sweet whiskey that has been matured full term in Californian Cabernet Sauvignon wine casks which makes it really fruity and spicy, a real joy to drink.

One of the greatest Irish malts I’ve ever tasted. If there is at least one recommendation of mine that you follow, make it this one … find it, buy it and drink it – it’s absolutely gorgeous!

Get it here!

Congratulations – May’s winner is:

DALWHINNIE 1987 25 YR OLD (SINGLE MALT)

dalwhinnie 1987

 

 

 

 

 

 

One of my favorites of all time has always been Dalwhinnie 15 year old, but this is really something special. They broke the mold when they made it, if you like the 15 year old then do yourself a favor and save up to taste it’s older brother.

I would not trade a bottle of this for all the olives in Greece baring in mind that I adore olives!

Best whiskey of the month – April 2014

Congratulations – April’s winner is:

NIKKA TAKETSURU 21 YR OLD (PURE MALT)

Nikka Taketsuru 21 Year Old Pure Malt

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is a glorious whisky from Japan offering a sweet peach and oak scents which complement a nutty flavour packed with hints of salt and pepper. The finishing taste is of a dry mint and nuts.

Be careful though, it might knock you off your feet before you know it…hic!

Get it here!
