Clynelish ‘Synch Elli’ 27yo 1982 (46%, Daily Dram 2009) – 89/100

There’s a new Daily Dram bottling and it promises to be a very good one. Synch Elli is the anagram for Clynelish. It’s a 1982 vintage, matured for 27 years. The price is around € 100. You may already know this whisky, because it’s actually the same cask as the Clynelish that The Perfect Dram […]

Tomatin 1965 ‘Oat Mint’ (48,1%, Daily Dram 2009, 210 btl.) – 90/100

Last week,  I’ve had a sneak peek at the brand new Daily Dram whisky glass. The bowl is closely related to a tulip / ISO glass, but there’s no stem, not even a foot. It’s rather small and comfortable to hold. I personally don’t like my whisky too cold, so I like the fact that […]

Laphroaig ‘Philo Raga’ 11y 1998 (57,5%, Daily Dram 2009) – 87/100

Hag Rap Oil – Laphroaig 9y 1998 (56,7%, Daily Dram 2007, 450 bottles) – 85/100

Two new bottlings in the Daily Dram range: an 11 year-old Laphroaig ‘Philo Raga’ from 1998 (57,5%) and a 43 year-old Tomatin ‘Oat Mint’ from 1965 (48,1%).

Our Angel – Cooley 9y 1999 (46%, Daily Dram 2009) – 88/100

Tasting notes of the new Daily Dram Undercover bottlings:
Undercover n°1 – Lagavulin 14y 1994 (53,1%, Daily Dram 2008, 196 btl.)
Undercover n°2 – Talisker 24y 1984 (51,9%, Daily Dram 2008, 82 btl.)
Undercover n°3 – Ardbeg / Laphroaig / Bowmore vatting (57,5%, Daily Dram 2008, 320 btl.)

A second set of impressions from the 2009 whisky festival in Gent, with tasting notes of the following whiskies:

Long Red – Glen Ord 12y 1996 (46%, Daily Dram 2008, 184 btl.)
Auchentoshan Three Wood (43%, OB 2008)
Bunnahabhain 38y 1970 (40,2%, Duncan Taylor Rare Auld 2008, cask 4075)
Caperdonich 36y 1972 (54,4%, Duncan Taylor Rare Auld 2008, cask 7219)
Connemara 16y 1992 (58,9%, 100° proof club bottling, cask K92/34 4185)

Good news: Daily Dram has three new bottlings named Undercover. The distilleries are undisclosed, but two of the whiskies are made on Islay (14y and 15y) and one on the Isle of Skye (24y – this should be Talisker because this is the only distillery on Skye).  Let’s hope they bring some bottles to the […]

Aloha Grip – Laphroaig 1992 16y (58%, Daily Dram 2008, 180 btl.) – 86/100

Dailuaine ‘Adieu Lina’ 1973 35y (47,6%, Daily Dram 2008, 150 btl.) – 88/100
