Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 266: Ardbeg Grooves

Mark Dermul, Belgian whisky blogger, tries an Ardbeg! This Grooves was the limited release for Ardbeg Day 2018. Mark admits that he was a bit Ardbeg-tired as he felt the special releases did not live up to the standard range. So his expectations for this Grooves were not that high. By the way: Grooves refers to the… err… grooves that appear when charring the red wine casks that were used for this release. But despite his misgivings, this turned out to be a fun and interesting expression!

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 265: Smoky Scot

Mark Dermul, Belgian whisky blogger, tries the Smoky Scot! While there is no mention of the distillery on the label anywhere, it is clear that this is an Islay whisky. In fact, this is a 5 year old Caol Ila that matured on bourbon casks, before being bottled at 46% by Aceo Ltd. And guess what? It’s a stunner and absolute bang for your buck!

Whisky Wednesday Reviews Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel, Barrel Proof – 64.1% – American Whiskey News

Jack! A name I love, a name a lot of people seem to ignore…not sure why in all honesty. The importance of this brand is forthright into the development of demand, advertising, celebrity and society based around whisky and how we know it today, not to say that Scottish and Irish distillers aren’t as important, of course. I’ve been waiting to buy this for ages and on a jet-lagged return from Kentucky to Manchester, I saw it for £37 with shipping, which is just insane! Cheers

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 264: Caol Ila 10 Year Old Feis Ile 2018 – Scotch Whisky News

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 264: Caol Ila 10 Year Old Feis Ile 2018

Mark Dermul, Belgian whisky blogger, text. Caol Ila released a 22 years old malt for Feis Ile 2019, but despite Mark’s shout out on social media, he has not (yet) been able to get one. Last year, his buddy Manny was on Islay, so he knew that the Feis Ile 2018 release – a Caol Ila 10 Year Old – would find its way to Ghent. It is a vatting of 8 casks: Refill American Oak Hogsheads and Rejuvenated European Oak Butts – whatever that means. Pierrick Guillaume, the French Master Distiller, selected the cask himself.

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 263: Port Charlotte 16 Year Old 2001 The Heretic

Mark Dermul, Belgian whisky blogger, tries the Heretic! This was the Feis Ile 2018 release from Port Charlotte (from the Bruichladdich Distillery, of course) and is, according to the label ‘the last of the first’, meaning the last casks of the first distillate. It’s a vatting of American oak, rum casks and even French wine casks.

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 262: Lagavulin 18 Year Old Feis Ile 2018

Mark Dermul, Belgian whisky blogger, tries another Lagavulin. In 2018 they launched for the third festival an a row an 18 Year Old. Mark admits that those Feis Ile releases, the distillery exclusives and mostly the Jazz Festival bottlings are very much to his liking. It is a vatting of refill hogsheads and sherry butts.
