Port Charlotte 17yo 2002-2020 (49.7%, Thompson Brothers)
Here we go with a Port Charlotte from the independent bottlers Thompson Brothers so let’s hope it’s good! I like this label very much!
Port Charlotte OLC: 01 9yo 2010-2021 (55.1%, OB)
Port Charlotte BR: 01 10yo 2007-2018 (62.8%, OB)
It’s not always easy to navigate through Port Charlotte official releases as they are very frequent. So let’s try two Port Charlotte official bottlings that were advised by friends.
Longrow 2007 11yo 2007-2019 (56.9%, OB)
The last Longrow I tasted was very good so I looked after another one on my stashes and here is what I found.
A speyside distillery 18yo 2001-2020 (52.3%)
Hazelburn 18yo 2001-2020 (47.4%, OB)
Longrow 10yo 2020 (53.7%, OB)
Let’s try some bottlings released for the Virtual Open day of the Campbeltown festival 2020!
Aberlour 18yo 2002-2020 (62.6%, OB for LMDW)
Today I am trying an Aberlour and to be honest I didn’t tasted a lot of those in the past! The last one was an Abunad’h and it was decent, so today I hope that I will taste a great one!
Caol ila 8yo 2011-2019 (59.4%, Asta Morris)
Caol ila 7yo 2012-2020 (55.9%, Asta Morris)
I already found some pearl among those frogs in the past so let’s try some young Caol Ila from the Belgian bottler Asta Morris and see what’s going to happen!
Glen Elgin 31yo 2004-2015 (47.2%, Signatory Vintage)
When I was looking at good price/quality ratio I though about this dram, it’s clearly not the same pricetag as the drams in the last article but I can tell you that it’s worth every euros you put in.
Ben Nevis 10yo (46%, OB, ~2017)
Benromach 10yo 2017 (43%, OB)
Lagavulin 16yo (43%, OB, ~2017)
Let’s try some cheaper dram today so we can maybe find some great price/quality ratio!
Daftmill 12yo 2007-2019 (46%, OB)
Daftmill 11yo 2009-2020 (60.6%, OB for LMDW)
I wanted to try some Daftmill for a long time now but it’s really hard to catch bottles or samples of those. So here I am with two interesting drams from this little distillery from the Lowlands!
Penderyn 5yo 2014-2019 (62.1%, OB)
Penderyn 12yo 2007-2019 (58.6%, OB)
Some friends told me about Penderyn, a Welsh distillery with some very nice bottlings. I tried to find some (not so easy to catch) samples, so let’s try those!
