A Dram Good Blended Malt #5 Review

After finishing a run of American whiskies I wanted to jump back in the world of single malts with something a little different. About two months ago, after getting towards the last half of a bottle of Aberlour A’Bunadh Batch #39 and Ardbeg 10-year-old, I thought I’d do a little experimenting with the two by […]

The GlenDronach 21 Year Parliament Review

Ah, The GlenDronach 21-year-old Parliament. I’ve been looking forward to the moment when I’d get around to this impressive looking malt. Not only is it a well-aged GlenDronach, but it has been matured in a combination of Oloroso and PX ex-Sherry casks. That and it has been bottled at a generous 48 percent ABV. What’s […]

Wemyss Malts Peat Chimney 8 Year Review

While Blended Scotch continues to be the “bread & butter” of the Scotch whisky industry, Blended Malts, or “Vatted Malts” as they were once referred, continue to rise in popularity alongside Single Malt Scotch. This is for good reason, as Blended Malts are exactly that; a blend of single malt whiskies – no grain whisky […]
