Single malt whisky - tasting notes

500 posts… almost

Posted by: Ruben Luyten In: * News

We’re a few entries short of 500 on this website (in less than two years), so I was thinking to have something special for that occasion. Here are a few extraordinary drams that are waiting in my sample stock. Which one should I try? Feel free to leave a comment with your suggestion.

    The laphroaig is really good. Probably the best in this list.

    I was going to say Laph 64 but Mars already voted for it.

    Glenfarclas 64 is also very intresting.

    wow, 500. ruben, this is a great work in progress.

    Glenfarclas 64 is wonderful !

    Congrats on the 500, Ruben. Making us choose is just mean… Any of the above would do to mark 500. I would choose the BBR Laphroaig. Or the Dalmore or the Bunna or the Glenfarclas. Or maybe the Macallan. Whatever you do, don’t forget to post notes!

  • Michael

    Absolutely outstanding work Ruben. Thank you.
    I vote for Laphroaig as well. My second choice is Macallan (very curious how you would like older Macallan).

    Congrats on this landmark for the site Ruben, and also for your conistantly excellent notes. As has been said above, all of these bottlings would make a fitting choice but if pushed I would perhaps choose the Macallan as it would be interesting to hear your thoughts, or perhaps the Bunna…a classic.

    500 already, great stuff! I’d vote for the Macallan and the Dalmore. Keep up the great work.

  • Roel

    Congratulations Ruben, you have been a proven asset to the whisky tasting world.

    Grant yourself the Bunna, I would say…, so you are inspired for the next 500 drams …

  • Filip

    i vote for the Laphroaig :)

    and as Geert says: more Ardbeg would be cool :)

    Go for the Bunna, Ruben – it’s unbelievable.

    Congratulations on the 500 – you’re doing brilliant work, keep it up.
