Review - Fettercairn 28 years old

This whisky forms part of the recently revamped range of single malts from the east Highland distillery of Fettercairn. The relaunch occurred in the Summer of 2018 and was accompanied by a full bottle and packaging redesign, along with a refreshing of the brand logo. The four bottlings are designed to show an emphasis on old and rare stock and all carry age statement. In addition to this 28 years old there are expressions at 12, 40 and 50 years of age. The 28 years old is created using whisky produced in the late 1980s and very early 1990s and has been fully matured in American white oak ex-bourbon barrels. It is bottled at 42% ABV.

Our Top 10 Whiskies of 2019



Another year has passed and as we pass in to a new decade, it is time for one of our favourite blog posts - our top 10 whiskies from last year. Everyone will have a different opinion about what should and should not be on such a list. Our list is simply our favourites with no criteria, such as price or availability applied, or agenda.

2019 saw seemingly more whiskies released than ever before. The ever growing number of new distilleries saw some bottle their first ever products, established brands put new whiskies in to their core ranges, classic whiskies were re-invented and some distilleries pushed the boundaries with the use of experimental or unorthadox casks. The competitions that we both judge on saw record levels of entries, reflecting this vibrancy and innovation .

Review - Ardbeg Supernova 2019 Edition

This whisky signals a brief return for one of Ardbeg's most popular recent limited editions - the Ardbeg Supernova. The expression, which is the peatiest released by the brand and has even been sent in to space as part of an experiment, was first released in 2009 and this new whisky is bottled to commemorate that 10th anniversary. As with the previous incarnations this has been created by Dr. Bill Lumsden - the Director of Distilling, Whisky Creation & Whisky Stocks at Ardbeg and its sister distillery of Glenmorangie in the Highlands.
