Five missing samples

Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in * News

It may be a silly goal wanting to try whisky from every single distillery in Scotland, but now that I’m close to achieving it, I’d like to ask for your help and tick the last names.

I’m not talking about the really new ones like Daftmill or Wolfburn (their time will come), nor about the ones that are really lost, like Maltmill. The ones I’m missing are very rare malts but not absolutely unfindable. If you have a bottle and you want to share a small sample, send me an e-mail please. I’m sure I can send you something interesting in return.

  • Ben Wyvis
  • Glen Flagler
  • Inverleven
  • Kininvie
  • Kinclaith

    I might have a sample from the Glenflagler Pure Malt left. Mind, it is not the single malt (since that is about 17 times more expensive). You interested?

    Thanks Sjoerd. Not that I’m not interested, but it’s Glenflagler mixed with other malts so I’m afraid it’s not an option to tick it off my list. Thanks anyway.

    Should Abhainn Dearg not also be on this list ? I do not find it on this site.

    That’s what I mean with the really new ones. I’m not particularly fond of 3 year-old whisky.

  • Phi

    Ah, okay.
    I had the 2008/2011 and yes that indeed has lots of new-spirit associations.

    I am also looking for Ben Wyvis, Kinivie and Kinclaith. If you want to share a sample (like the Ben Wyvis on Jurgen Whiskyhuis, or another one…) because it’s too expansive, I could be your man. If I find something I will let you know.
