Jean-Luc Pasquet 1967-2020 “#8 Le voyageur: Lot 67” (40.6%, Malternative Belgium)
Today I’m tasting the last cognac release of “Malternative Belgium” a Belgian Independent Bottler. Well you could have guessed for the Belgian part. Let’s try it with my “Whisky-lover” point of view!
Chantal Comte Tour de l’Or 2006-2017 (57.7%)
Chantal Comte Tour de l’Or 2005-2017 (51.5%)
Chantal Comte Tour de l’Or 2001-2017 (64.8%)
Today it’s the first review about Chantal Comte bottlings on the blog/
Octomore 10yo “Edition X4+10 – 2019” (70%, OB)
Octomore 5yo 2010-2015 “Edition 07.3” (63%, OB)
Young Bruichladdich heavily peated. That’s basically what we gonna try today. Let’s see what kind of peat monster we have in there since they mention some crazy ppm!
Hazelburn 21yo 1997-2019 (46%, OB, Open Day 2019)
Bowmore 15yo (51.7%, OB, Feis Ile 2019)
Lagavulin 19yo (53.8%, OB, Feis Ile 2019)
Caol Ila 22yo (58.4%, OB, Feis Ile 2019)
Let’s go back to the 2019 edition of the Campbeltown festival and Feis ile by trying those 4 bottlings. Let’s forget those actual strange times we are living and remember how those days were “back in the day”! (I’m feeling old just by writing this, trust me)
The Whisky Agency Long Pond 2000-2016 (49.3%)
Duncan Taylor Long Pond 2000-2017 (54.1%)
Silver Seal Long Pond 2000-2018 (50%)
I write a lot about Hampden’s but what about Long Pond? There are way less Long Pond bottlings comparatively and honestly I never get blown by them except some like this Cadenhead’s.
Springbank 19yo 2000-2019 (50.8%, Wu Dram Clan)
Springbank 26yo 1992-2020 (47.7%, Wu Dram Clan)
Here are two bottles that I wanted to try for a long time given all the good feedbacks some friends gave me, so today we managed to both of their Springbank bottlings!
Samaroli Barbados 1986-2006 (45%)
Barbados, 1986, hmmm, what are you thinking about? We can read West Indies Rum Refinery on that colourful label and that’s the reason why I picked that sample today! I’ll review some W.I.R.D in the next weeks and I consider this one as a warm-up.
Springbank 17yo 2002-2020 (47.8%, OB)
Here is on of the last Springbank release and to be honest the strange casks composition surprised me a bit so I decided to try it!
Velier Diamond & Versailles 1996-2014 (57.9%)
Velier Enmore & Port Mourant 1998-2014 (62.2%)
Velier Diamond SVW 1999-2014 (64.7%)
Velier Port Mourant 1993-2006 (65%)
Four tropical aged rums from Demerara, bottled by Velier… If you already tried some from that specific category you probably have good memories about it, right?
Springbank 12yo 2017 “Batch 15” (56.5%, OB)
Springbank 15yo 2003-2019 (51.0%, OB, rum wood)
Today i’ll try two relatively cheap and easily accessible CS Springbank’s. In my memories, those 12yo CS are always good, never tried this one tough, so let’s go!
