The Good Dram Show – Episode 439 ‘Independent Bladnoch’ – Scotch Whisky News

Welcome to this weeks epic episode of the show in which I’ll be taking a look at some Independently bottled old Bladnoch. The samples came from the 2017 and 2018 Independent Bottlers Challenge and given the competitions demise it’s unlikely that these sort of samples will come my way again. So enjoy!

Whisky Wednesday Reviews Springbank SYC 23YO…- Scotch Whisky News

A complete one-off!

Originating from the SYN Syndicate in the south of England, this 23YO vintage is one of the finest and most wonderful examples of Springbank that I’ve ever had the privilege to taste. These bottles are now fully sold out…sorry. But, the story behind it, both the happy and the sad parts have meant it now gets its place in the fuller world of whisky history.

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 409: Lambertus 5 Year Old Single Malt – Belgian Whisky News

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 409: Lambertus 5 Year Old Single Malt

Mark Dermul, Belgian whisky blogger, tries another Belgian malt, albeit somewhat reluctantly: Lambertus… Mark is immediately wary. In 2011 and 2015 he tasted their single grain and then called it – somewhat irreverently, admittedly – Aqua Vitae Horribilis. But it was also really not drinkable in his opinion. When offered this bottle to taste, Mark was not immediately very enthusiastic.
