Liquid Sun

Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in * News

Liquid Sun Whisky AgencySome independent German bottlers have a huge pile of available casks. This leads to a whole array of sub-brands. Liquid Sun is the latest series by The Whisky Agency.

While the first Liquid Sun bottlings (with a minimalist white label) were aimed at the Swedish and Asian markets, the new releases (with a more commercial, more sunny label) have showed up in German shops as well so maybe the rest of Europe will follow soon?

At first I thought the chosen casks were meant to be younger and better value than other Whisky Agency ranges, but I’m not sure about that anymore. Here are a few bottlings from the recent series:

    • Ardmore 1992 (bourbon)
    • Bunnahabhain 1968 (refill sherry)
    • Laphroaig 1991 (sherry)
    • Laphroaig 1998 (bourbon)
    • Linkwood 1989 (refill sherry)

  • 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
