Recently a reader made a comment on our Debate Over Age Statements dispatch, essentially asking what the story was with independently bottled whiskies. Why would a 25 year old Bladnoch from Alexander Murray cost less than a 25 year old whisky directly from Bladnoch? What’s the difference between the independent bottling and the distillery bottling, anyway?

Late last year The Glenrothes embarked on a bold rebranding, revamping much of its vintage-dated whisky and converting it to age statemented releases called the Soleo Collection (a reference to the 100% start-to-finish sherry cask aging used in all the whiskies in this lineup). Soleo spans five expressions, including 10, 12, 18, and 25 year old bottlings, plus one non-age-statement bottle called the Whisky Maker’s Cut.

We reviewed the 12 year old when it was released, and finally we’re digging into the rest of the collection (sans the 25 year old, which was not available for tasting). A fresh look at the 12 year old is included as well for the sake of comparison. Follow the link in our profile for the review! 🥃

Got something new. The initial feel is like a mouthful of wet peppermint. Not in the flavor, but the actual feeling. It is spicy and smooth at the same time. It doesn't take your breath away and lets the flavor take over. It tastes like a sweet old log in the best way possible. As if you spilled sugar on an lightly charred oak bench and decided the best way to get it up was licking it. Maybe the mango slushie I had prior is affecting the flavor. Even being a "lowly" 12 year, this is easily near the top of my list. #scotch #whiskey #scotchwhiskey #scotchreview #whiskeyreview #glendronach #singlemalt #highlandscotch #scotchdrinking #whiskeydrinking #glendronach12

Islay’s Bruichladdich has long been tinkering with the terroir of barley, with whiskey releases made from only Scottish barley, Islay-grown barley, and even barley grown on a single farm. With its latest addition to this lineup, the distillery returns to Islay-grown grain, specifically “Oxbridge and Publican barley varietals grown on six Islay farms in a young liquid that showcases the island’s windswept micro-climate.” The barley was harvested in 2011 and the distillate was aged in 75% ex-bourbon casks and 25% “ex-wine European oak casks.

I was hiking in the wilderness, birdwatching when I came across a rare sight... a Naked Grouse and her offspring in their natural habitat! The @naked_grouse is usually a native of the Scottish Highlands, so you can imagine my delight to find her in the wilds (or I should say, the suburbs) of Houston, Texas. She's a rare mixed breed of single malts from The Macallan, Highland Park, Glenrothes, and Glenturret. Quite the ancestry, if you ask me! Matured for 6 months in sherry casks, this makes for one tasty, I mean, usual sighting. I was so overcome with delight, that I couldn't help but take a sip. Enticingly smooth, robustly rich in flavor, and with a subtle sweetness that lingers on the tongue... such a treat to behold, I might just have to give this a 5 out of 5. #EverythingIsBetterNaked

SMS Review: Aberlour Cash Annamh.
.
Aberlour and sherried whisky go hand in hand. With A'bunadh setting the standard for OB NAS sherrybombs for two decades, it's interesting to see a new Aberlour sherried expression hit the market.
.
Granted, this whisky isn't designed to be a replacement for A'bunadh. Casg Annamh was matured in 3 different cask types: European oak sherry casks and two different types of American oak cask (ex-bourbon and ex-sherry).
.
Casg Annamh is Scottish Gaelic for Rare Cask. I'm not a big fan of releases that market the casks themselves as the main differentiator but I’ll leave that for the full review.
.
My notes include candied ginger, plums, ripe melon, stewed fruit, maple syrup, and more.

NEW POST - A Complex Hive of Sweet and Spicy
What comes to mind when you hear the term “complex whisky?” I’ve heard some whisky folks describe a scotch as “complex” only if it has a litany of strong “in your face” layers from different flavor profiles. One person even told me only heavily peated whiskies or sherry bombs could be considered complex and that a “plain Highland whisky could never rank as a complex expression.” I just smiled and told him that I absolutely disagreed.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Fact: there are complex whiskies from each region, including this Highland malt – AnCnoc 12.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Take a look at the latest review on www.ScotchontheBayou.com (link in bio). I'd love to hear what you think of this whisky. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Laphroaig fans are by now no stranger to its limited edition Cairdeas bottlings, which are released each year as part of Islay’s Fèis Ìle celebrations.

This year’s limited release is a cask strength version of its popular Triple Wood release, a whisky which is first matured in ex-bourbon barrels, then moves to smaller quarter casks, and finally is finished in European oak casks that previously held oloroso sherry. The big twist is while the standard Triple Wood hits 96 proof, this one tips the scales at 119 proof, nearly 60% abv. Follow the link in our profile for the review! 🥃

SMS review: Glenlossie 20 Year (Old Particular)
.
Glenlossie is a Diageo brand that you don't see as a single malt very often as it is mostly used for blends. Since 1971, Glenlossie has also shared a site with the Mannochmore brand.
.
This is one of those "orchard fruit" profile whiskies that you know you'll enjoy if you're looking for a fruity profile.
.
This bottle of Glenlossie contains whisky distilled in 1992. It aged in refill bourbon cask 10061 for 20 years before being bottled at 51.5% ABV by Douglas Laing's Old Particular brand. I selected this for one of my very first whisky tastings many years ago. It was unsurprisingly well received.
.
My notes include green apple, sea air, heather, banana, nutmeg, pears, and more. Head on over to singlemaltsavvy.com (link in bio) for the full review!
.
Photo by @sophie_chan. Thanks again! Aside from one potato quality photo I took 5-6 years ago, this is the only pic of this bottle I could find on IG.

How many whiskies can you think of that have a stag on them?

Probably the most visually striking of them is The Dalmore. A Single malt from the Highlands of Scotland. Part of the @whyte.mackay
family and now available in India via @vbev. This is the chewy, zesty, spiced, Sherry-influenced, intense 12year-old at an unusual 40% abv (alcohol)
🥃
Trivia: What do you think Dalmore translates to?
A. Plain of stags 
B. 12-pointed antlers
C. Vast meadowland
🦌
Available in Delhi @Rs.8550, Mumbai @Rs.9990, Bangalore @Rs. 7890.

Glenfarclas 180th Taiwan Edition 
#review : I have to admit, I am a sucker for a good sherry bomb. And this Taiwan exclusive Glenfarclas distillery offering is a decadent nuke.Those familiar with Glenfarclas will know that it has a typical “bready” profile, and this malt definitely brings that on the nose, in addition to nougat, chocolate covered caramels, peanuts, and a whiff of that clean ocean smell you get at high tide. The palate oozes with a rich, oily texture and notes of malted milk balls, buttered brioche, nougat, more milk chocolate, and a nice hint of sherry sulphur. If you have a sweet tooth, pick yourself up a bottle of this or one of the family casks. While other sherried malts may get all the attention (I’m thinking of another distillery starting with “Glen”), Glenfarclas is one you shouldn’t sleep on.

Hazelburn is, quite famously, not a distillery but rather a specific style of whisky produced at Campbeltown’s Springbank Distillery. Hazelburn uses air-dried barley (with no peat, unlike Springbank’s other two styles) and is triple distilled, making for a light-as-a-feather spirit when it comes off the still.

This unique version of Hazelburn spends 6 years in bourbon barrels, followed by 3 years of finishing in Barolo wine casks. Distilled in June 2007, with 10,800 bottles produced. Follow the link in our profile for the review! 🥃

A tag on the neck of this new whisky reveals that it’s an “Anniversary Edition.” The anniversary of what? Well, it’s Distillery Manager Bobby Anderson’s 18th year on the job at Speyburn, so the distillery is launching an 18 year old version of this whisky in his honor.

Always an incredible value, it’s nice to see Speyburn continuing to move its way toward older and older bottlings. (Old Speyburn can be quite lovely.) This expression eschews parlor tricks and goes with a straightforward aging regimen: It’s matured in both bourbon and sherry casks for 18 years, though the proportion of each is not disclosed.
