While there were a few pieces that caught our eyes, we’ve picked just a handful of timepieces that really stood out for us. These selected […]

We managed to sample some absolutely exquisite drams of Balvenie and even had the chance to sample drams that are no longer in production  along side some seriously aged Scotch but we’ll get to that in a couple […]

Girvan Patent Still 25 Year Old Single Grain Scotch: So far this year we’ve look at just one other single grain whisky: Haig Club but make no mistake this is in a completely different league. However, if you were not aware, grain whisky is usually used for blends and it just so happens Girvan grain is used in […]

Craigellachie 17 Year Old Single Malt Scotch: Last time round we looked at this 13yo Craigellachie and as mentioned before, Craigellachie, like most distilleries, had spent its life providing fillings for blends. This isn’t unusual. After all, 90% of the Scotch whisky sold globally is blended. Malt distilleries, by and large, exist to provide liquid for […]

Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar: A piece that probably went unnoticed during this year’s Basel world watch fair, probably due to all the focus on the stainless steel pieces introduced this year such as the 5990/1A and 5960/1A that we looked at. The Patek Philippe automatic perpetual calendar ref 5140, which is the epitome of simple […]

Lagavulin Distillers Edition Single Malt Scotch: As mentioned when we looked at the standard 16yo earlier this year, Lagavulin is one of  the oldest distillery sites in Scotland, this intense Port Ellen Islay scotch whisky receives the slowest distillation of any Islay malt. However, each Lagavulin Distillers Edition expression undergoes a second, or double, maturation in casks […]
