Whisky Reviews


I’ve not been able to review quite as much whisky over the past few weeks, mainly because life has been getting in the way (allotment, new day job, wedding planning), and also because I had a couple too many existing bottles that just needed polishing off. However, I have managed a couple of very tasty drams: Aberlour 16 Year Old and Auchentoshan Valinch 2012, both of which are on the other site.

On this subject, the Wall Street Journal has a fascinating feature on Japanese whisky. Japan produces some of the finest single malts and blends in the world, sometimes far better than Scottish whisky, so it’s good to see it get some wider coverage.
