Auchentoshan 26yo Sherry Hogshead by Claxton’s

End of the line. Good things coming to an end. It’s time to review the last Claxton’s sample I received earlier this year. As you’ve seen I’ve lined them up according to age. Therefor it shouldn’t be surprising that this one is the oldest. A Lowland whisky distilled at the Auchentoshan distillery, matured in a Sherry Hogshead and bottled at an age of 26. Should be nice, don’t you think?

Special Releases 2016, Glenkinchie 24yo

Another week, another review of one of the Diageo Special Releases 2016. Again it’s a “Classic Malts” whisky. Despite being one of the classics I don’t think I’ve ever tasted a dram of Glenkinchie. What a way to have a first encounter with this distillery. Peter did have a 20cl bottle of the standard 12yo once but that was some years ago. We’re both very curious about this sample so let’s get started.
