Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 345: Macallan Classic Cut 2019 – Scotch Whisky News

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 345: Macallan Classic Cut 2019

Mark Dermul, Belgian whisky vlogger, enjoys another Macallan. The Classic Cut series was launched in 2017 and can be seen as an homage to the Macallan from an era gone by – before the launch of the Fine Oak, where bourbon casks made their introduction. It’s a yearly limited release of Macallan that matured exclusively on sherry casks – well, sherry seasoned casks to be clear – and bottled at cask strength. This is the 2019 edition, bottled at 52.9%.

Whisky Wednesday Reviews Isle of Arran The Bothy – Scotch Whisky News

https://youtu.be/I4POD_j3Xis

Arran is a whisky distillery that is still growing up; they’ve only just hit their mid-twenties. But, wow. For a distillery that is still in infancy, in the grand scheme of whisky, they’re giving us product after product of well made, balanced, robust, characterful single malt whiskies. This is The Bothy or The Quarter Cask. Nine years of full Bourbon matured raucousness in a bottle. Cask strength, natural colour, non-chill filtered. £50. TAKE ALL OF MY MONEY!

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 344: Macallan 18 Year Old Triple Cask Matured – Scotch Whisky News

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 344: Macallan 18 Year Old Triple Cask Matured

Mark Dermul, Belgian whisky vlogger, ventures to Macallan. In their Triple Cask Matured series, this is a very nice one with 18 years of maturation on three types of casks: American and European sherry seasoned casks and American bourbon casks. Just like the 15 years old, this one is cut to 43%. It was bottled in 2018.

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 343: Nc’nean Organic Single Malt – Batch 1 – Scotch Whisky News

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 343: Nc’nean Organic Single Malt – Batch 1

Mark Dermul, Belgian whisky vlogger, tries the first Nc’nean organic single malt. Nc’nean is a new distillery, one that holds nature in high regard. They grow their barley organically and use only renewables for energy. Even the packaging, both bottle and tube, are made of recycled material. In 2020 the inaugural release ‘Ainnir’ at cask strength was launched (1320 bottles), immediately followed by this general release – batch 1 – at drinking strength. This Batch 1 sold out pretty quickly. It’s a vatting of 14 casks, 65% STR red wine casks and 35% former bourbon casks.

Whisky Wednesday – Bruichladdich Classic Laddie – Scotch Whisky News

I’ve always called Bruichladdich – ‘Punk Rock Whisky’ and they’re still yet to deter me using that phrase.

The Classic Laddie: Bourbon, Sherry and Wine casks. A conglomerate of vast flavour at 50% ABV, Non-Chill Filtered & Natural Colour. It’s a powerful Islay that doesn’t have to use peat to get its point across, a wonderful thing to say in itself. Bringing together so many different and wonderful styles of Scottish whisky into one bottle is what this has always been about; they’ve succeeded.
