Whisky Round Table

Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in * News

Whisky Round Table A few weeks ago, fellow blogger Jason (GuidScotchDrink) invited me to be part of his Whisky Round Table. Each month, one question will be answered by 12 bloggers and the answers will be published on one of our blogs.

The first question is “What rules have you set for yourself in your whisky lives and how have you rationalized breaking them?”

As it turns out, most whisky lovers don’t have rules. Are we surprised…?
Read the full answers here.

    Rule: don’t bankrupt yourself buying great whisky.

    Rationalization for breaking rule: Port Ellen annual releases, Brora 30 yo, DL Old & Rare, Diageo Special Releases, 40+ yo whisky, 1966 Local Barleys, rare Samaroli imports…

    Well yes, that’s a difficult rule because I could add lots of other “rational” expensive bottles… Anyway I buy less bottles every year, but I buy more expensive bottles. So the quality goes up but on the other hand some of the bottles are really really expensive.

  • Taco: I'm about finished with a bottle of this and am still amazed at how good it is. It's much more subtle than the popular sherry finished whiskers, but
  • Tony: I guess they are not planning on selling much to the likes of us. "Premiumisation" gone mad...
  • Johan Andersson: I'm in Campbeltown right now for the Springbank Open Day on Thursday. This review is really spot on. I really love Longrow and especially the 18 it be
