Apr 29th 2022 - Tasting notes

Gateshead Whisky News 29.04.2020

Ok Loungers, if you haven’t got your Tickets for The London Whisky Weekender in a couple of weeks, why not!? It’s going to be EPIC! It may even afford you the opportunity to actually meet Connas, as opposed to just reading his weekly News Updates!


Speaking of which…


Festival Time at Glen Scotia!


Glen Scotia have announced an 8 Year Old as this year’s festival bottling. It was initially matured in heavily peated, first-fill bourbon barrels before being finished for 12 months in Pedro Ximénès hogsheads. This excites me greatly!


The Spirit of ‘allachie!


Glenallachie have also announced their bottling for the Spirit of Speyside festival, along with three other offerings, making up Batch 6 of their single cask range! Nice…



64 bit Ballantines!


Chivas Brothers have announced a gaming partnership between its blended Scotch brand Ballantine’s and Gearbox franchise Borderlands. I wonder if it has beanstalks like on Mario…


Spring in to Nc’nean!


Nc’nean have launched the first release from their new spring series “Huntress 2022”.


Bladnoch Rewarded!


Bladnoch have been honoured with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for excellence in international trade. Congratulations, team!


Auction Stuff


Someone bought a cask of Macallan for £5000 in 1988 and forgot about it. It just sold at auction for a million. This kind of thing never happens to me!


And Finally…


If you put your socks on inside out. The WHOLE WORLD is in your socks, apart from you.


You just think about that….


And I’ll see you next week for more Whisky News!
