July Whisky Blogs Roundup

It is back! Longer, bigger and uncut!

It has been a long time since I was able to write the round up. I expected to write this weekly but I have been extremely busy and I haven’t been able to do it.
So in a new hope, I plan to do a monthly blogs round up with just the best of the best, so in a ten minutes you can stay updated ( or outdated! ) of what has been happening in the amazing world of whisky worlds.

Coastal Holiday Sand Beach

BoubonBlog writes a interesting tasting review of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey

Dramming has, along it great concise tasting notes, two good articles about whisky: Ten things about scotch whisky everybody should know and the ten essential scotch whiskies that everybody should have tried. Just one thing, where is my ardbeg?!.

The Casks features a very complete review of Mortlach 15 years old from Chieftains independent bottler and of Dalmore Cigar Malt Reserve. Wasn’t this one discontinued?

CaskStrength and Carry On has several good reviews of Kilchoman 100% Islay Whisky, Compass Box Great King Street Blended Whisky and their own Arran bottling which is not sold out unfortunately.

John Hansell of Mald Advocate writes a most interesting post about keeping whiskies from oxidizing and a good amount of Islay whiskies review: classic Lagavulin 16 years old, Laphroaig Cairdeas and Ardbeg Alligator Committee Reserve. Lucky guy!

WhiskyforEveryone reviews also Kilchoman 100% Islay Malt, Spanish DYC 8 years old blended whisky of which they say it is “refreshing and ideal for drinking in a hot climate”. Sure! Keep it and we will take Macallan for us :).

WhiskyIsrael does a review of St George English Whisky Chapter 11, both the standard and the cask strength version which should be released really shortly. Also write a serie of tasting notes from Benriach distillery. As well as a tasting session of four Glenfiddich: 12 years old, 14 years old Rich Oak, 15 years old and 21 years old.

WhiskyNotes has some great tasting notes of Inchgower 36 years old from Master of Malt ( guess who bought the last bottle of it! ), a japanese whisky Akashi White Oak, a not really favorable review of DYC blended whisky ( I have to agree with Ruben that the whisky isn’t good, it is hell better to get the DYC Single Malt Coleccion Barricas, this one is a great Spanish whisky ). Also he writes a few reviews of Japanese whiskies, among them Yamazaki 18 years old. Worth reading them really.

Whiskyfun turned nine years on July and Serge is now over 7400 tasting notes. The archived post features lots of tasting notes from many independent bottlers.
