Big Peat Christmas Edition 2016 “All Islay” (54.6%)

It’s that time of year again when the nights are getting longer and we drop back into standard time (or ‘winter clock’ as they call it in Israel) and at long last, temperatures begin to enter a comfortable zone.

Bunnahabhain 12 – One of the More Complex 12 Year Olds Out There

I have reviewed quite a few Bunnahabhain expressions, and it was fitting to include the 12 year old in this series of entry level whiskys. In truth, though, this is a higher quality whisky than the slew of the 10-12 year olds out there, not least due to the approach taken by owners Burn Stewart Distillers…

A Bunnahabhain Like No Other – Douglas Laing Old Particular Bunnahabhain 16

The warehouses at Douglas Laing hold single cask wonders, and Fred chooses his casks well. One of the Douglas Laing offerings at the London Whisky Show was this beautiful bourbon cask matured 16 year old Bunnahabhain I tasted at the show but wasn’t able to take notes for. There was also a Deanston 20 and…
