Whisky Reviews

Many of you still might not be aware of the recent whisky website that I’ve started up, called Malt. Anyway, I’m posting my whisky reviews there from now on, and hoping to develop it into something else as a side project. Three reviews of note have gone up recently.

First, Ichiro’s Malt Chichibu The First:

This whisky is three years old. It packs more of a complex heft than many older whiskies I’ve tasted. When this distillery comes of age, it’ll be an award winner, no doubt about it.

Then the Dalmore 15 Year Old:

The Dalmore 15 Year Old is mellow, graceful and delightful – it’s got the substance to match the style. But I got the impression that there was a dram of tremendous beauty just waiting to break out.

And finally the BenRiach 16 Year Old:

Earlier in the month I tried the BenRiach 12 Year Old, which at £25 was a cracking value for money whisky. So continuing my brief exploration of this distillery, which can be found buried deep within the Speyside region, I moved on to the BenRiach 16 Year Old.

Anyway, do stop by on Malt for more whisky reviews and random related posts. Add it to your RSS feed if you want regular reviews and updates. It’s also on Facebook and Twitter. Please do spread the word as well!

EDIT: I’ve since moved all old reviews over to the website, and deleted them from this blog (to help with Google search results on the new site). Have a browse – they’re all there.
