The Pipe House Bunnahabhain 2001

A Tasty Dram Whisky Blog tasting notes

I discovered The Pipe House in Koblenz on a family holiday four years ago. The Pipe House specializes in - not hard to guess - pipes and tobacco. They also have a decent range of spirits and bottle(d) some whiskies and rums under their own label The Pipe House. Bunnahabhain and wine casks can be a match made in heaven. So when I picked this independent bottling - a vatting of a Bordeaux cask and an Oloroso sherry butt - I was rather excited.

Highland Park The Dark & The Light

Upcoming collectable whisky releases are pretty much the worst kept secrets these days. In less then a month two new single malts from Orkney based distillery Highland Park appeared in the public Colas database.
The expressions are respectively called Highland Park The Dark and Highland Park The Light. Both have the exact same ABV (Alcohol by volume) of 52.9% ABV. 28.000 bottles of both The Light and The Dark will hit the markets. Looks like the Walhalla and Fire & Series will get a successor somewhere soon.

Nothing else of interest has been known yet.
