June Preview

Hello dear readers,

another month is in the books and I hope everyone had a good May. Before we have a look at what June has in store for us, let’s have a short recap of what May brought to us.

What a busy month here at dramlicious.com! I published not less than 30 new reviews, including the complete Tomatin ‘Cuatro’ Series and Glenfiddich’s ‘Age of Discovery’ Series ( both times not impressed). Furthermore, I reviewed five different expressions from Buffalo Trace, four different expressions from Kavalan and just as many expressions from independent bottler Ian MacLeod. As for personal highlights, my top five would be probably something like:

  1. Clynelish 1996/2015 ‘Single Cask Seasons – Spring 2015′ (Signatory Vintage) – 92 points
  2. Teeling 21 Years Old Silver Bottling – 91 points
  3. split between Elmer T. Lee Single Barrel and W. L. Weller 12 Years Old – both 91 points
  4. The Six Isles 10 Years Old Petrus Gaia Finish (2003 / 2014) – 90 points
  5. Aultmore 8 Years 2007/2015 (bottled for whic.de) – 88 points

What is more, my first article for German online whisky retailer whic.de got published, which you can find here (it’s in German) and the next one is already in the pipe line. And, as some of you might already know, yesterday I was invited to visit the Ardbeg Day here in Berlin, where I had a pretty good time and met two blogger colleagues of mine, namely Benjamin from notes of malt and Richard from NOSEing time. I will publish a full written summary of the day soon.

But now, without any further ado, let’s see what you can expect next month.

American Monday

Five new episodes of ‘American Monday’ will come out, featuring two bourbons, two rye whiskys and one single malt from Oregon. Yeah, that’s right, they are also making single malt whisky in the Beaver State nowadays.

Worldwide Wednesday

More expressions from Kavalan, including their whole single cask range called ‘Solist’ (I see what you did there) and their two most recent releases.

Tasty Tastings

I will try to find a good balance between standard-expressions, some older / more expensive stuff and independent bottlings. So next month’s episodes of ‘Tasty Tastings’ will cover, among other things, Edradour, Glenfarclas (Port Pipe Edition), Mortlach, Scapa und finally some Single Grains.

Peaty Friday

Of course I will review the Ardbeg Perpetuum as well as the newest peaty BenRiach called “Dunder” (really excited about that one).

One last thing: If you enjoy reading this little blog of mine (and chances are not bad that you do ff you have read this far) please make sure to give my Facebook page a like and/or to follow me on twitter. I deeply appreciate any support.

Alright, that’s all for now but stay tuned for the things to come.

Until then, all the best!
