A Remarkable Regional Malts Mix Up



Independent bottler Douglas Laing is never shy of trying out new things. They embraced both the social media posse within the whisky scene and don't stick to the old views on drinking whisky (no ice, no cocktails, no coke, only straight is good, only single malt is good,... you know the drill already). Time for a Remarkable Regional Malts Mix Up.

Gordon & Macphail Connoisseurs Choice Caol Ila 2004

A Tasty Dram Whisky Blog tasting notes

Tonight's whisky is one from Gordon & Macphail: a Connoisseurs Choice Caol Ila 2004.

Saying that Caol Ila is Islay’s understated distillery would be plain wrong. In the past ten years Caol Ila has earned its place as a distillery delivering consistently (jeez, that almost sounds like Ralfy Mitchell) good malts. Within a few years the marketing minds will probably start crafting a heritage story for Caol Ila.

Bruichladdich’s The Three Tens

A Tasty Dram Whisky Blog tasting notes

Back in 2011 when The Laddie Ten came out it set the standard for future Bruichladdich whiskies. It was composed of whisky distilled in 2001 under Jim McEwan’s watch. It quickly gained a stellar reputation. Fast forward to 2014, the famous Ten became somewhat a victim of it’s own success. It became a distillery exclusive and was gradually replaced by the Classic Laddie. Guess what? Bruichladdich’s The Three Tens are back!

Tamdhu 50

Let's start this week with "old news". Tamdhu Distillery is preparing a 50 year old single malt. What's even more special about it is the whopping 55.6% ABV.
The label is not disclosing anything about this Tamdhu 50 so we'll have to do it with this.
