Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 229: Laphroaig Select

Mark Dermul, Belgian whisky blogger, tries another Laphroaig. The Laffie Select jumps on the bandwagon of the NAS hype. The name Select points to the selection of casks that was used for the composition of this new release, being oloroso sherry butts, PX seasoned hogsheads, quarter casks and straight American white oak (probably virgin wood). According to the website, this enabled them to discover 6 new taste combinations. The final selection for bottling was done by their fanbase, the Friends of Laphroaig.

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 228: Bowmore No 1

Mark Dermul, Belgian whisky blogger, sips another Bowmore. The Bowmore No. 1 should be seen as the new entry level malt. It is friendly priced, bottled at drinking strength and easy to find. No age statement, but that is no longer an issue, or is it? It matured exclusively on first fill bourbon casks

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 227: Talisker 18 Year Old – Scotch Whisky News

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 227: Talisker 18 Year Old

Mark Dermul, Belgian whisky blogger, tries a malt ‘Made by the Sea’. The label also says: ‘Talisker, the only distillery on the Isle of Skye’. Well… Seems to me owner Diageo will be relabeling their bottles soon, since Torabhaig opened its doors in January 2017. They can simply replace the word ‘only’ by ‘oldest’, I suppose. Having said that, their whiskies are obviously top notch and I am fortunate enough to try the excellent Talisker 18 Year Old, bottled – as Talisker is wont to do for most of their releases – at 45.8%.

Whisky Wednesday Reviews Talisker 8YO 59.4% – Scotch Whisky News

 A salty islander, forged by the rough seas of the Atlantic ocean that carries it’s briny nature in every bottle that has been cracked open in celebration. This one though is a little different. Cask strength of 59.4% – not to be underestimated. This was by far and a way the best of the Diageo 2018 releases and also the cheapest! Can’t argue  with the value of £70 in the UK, perfect pricing for something of this power and stature. Cheers!

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 226: Orkney 15 Year Old 2002 for MMM

Mark Dermul, Belgian whisky blogger, bottles his next MMM single cask. For the fourth and final bottling in their Antarctica Series – with again a fantastic label thanks to the sharp lens of photographer Ilse Everaert – they travelled to an Orkney distillery. This sherry cask had been sleeping for 15 years and offers a beautiful malt that bursts with fruit, but remains very close to the distillery character at the same time. With an ABV of 53.2% it would even set the heart of a Viking on fire! A worthy conclusion to MMM’s Antarctica Series.
