Another extraordinary bottling from „A Dream of Scotland“: Part III of the Motorcycle-Series - Glentauchers, 8 years old, 1st Fill Oloroso Sherry Butt, Single Cask, Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Sulfur notes (like the smell of fireworks on New Year‘s Eve), sweet sugar popcorn, cotton candy, sweet roasted almonds, dark dried fruits. When was the last time you had been to a funfair? #singlemaltscotchwhisky#gle#glentauchersillery #glentauchers #caskstrength#adreamofscotland#bruehlerwhiskeyhaus
In this week’s review, I examine @laphroaig Lore, a single malt some people love and some people love to hate. With notes of figs, raisins, berry cobbler, amaretto, green pepper, clove, and plenty of bonfire-style peat smoke, I rather enjoy this whisky, although it’s a bit overpriced IMHO. Checkout MeadeMule.com for my full review. BTW, I’m pretty proud of this photo... I spent quite a bit of time trying to get this shot right, and I think it paid off. #laphroaig#laphroaiglore#islaywhisky#whiskywednesday#whiskeywednesday#productphotography
Shaking and stirring up a storm is just what we do 🍹
Glenrothes Robur Reserve Scotch Whisky
The Glenrothes Robur Reserve is named for Quercus Robur, the official name for European or Spanish oak, and contains a greater proportion of first-fill Oloroso sherry casks.
This is one of those drams to pour for somebody that doesn't usually enjoy whisky. It will quickly convert them to a full-blown whisky lover with it's fruity aroma, superb golden syrup like flavour, spicy finish, and fantastic value. Certainly the best I've tasted among Glenrothes production.

Another outstanding whisky from the independent bottler „A Dream of Scotland“ - the Bruichladdich 12 years old, Bourbon Cask, Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Crispy cheese sticks! Very special „cheesy“ character in the nose. You’ll love it or hate it. Behind you find rich barley, malt, citrus notes, strawberry-cream-roll (I dont‘t know if you have these in your country, folks), hay, gras, vanilla and oat cakes - very complex! A malt whisky far from mainstream!

I started a YouTube channel a few months ago, and I finally got around to posting a new video review this weekend. Four Roses Al Young 50th Anniversary LE, which was my pick for best limited edition bourbon of 2017. If you’re interested, check out the video at https://youtu.be/IcazXbovfXI (there’s also a link in the review section of MeadeMule.com). #fourroses#fourrosesbourbon#bestbourbon@fourrosesbourbon
Bowmore 10 years Inspired by the Devil’s Cask
An interesting whisky from one of the oldest distillers in Scotland. A combination of ex-Oloroso Sherry Casks and ex-Red Wine Barriques gives this dram a sweet then spicy kick to the palate. I wouldn’t choose this as my everyday whisky but definitely worth a try 👍🏻 cheers 🥃
