When English friends visit

Untitled

My wife Antonia  has an international history from the time before she met me. She used to live and work in Spain and later on in England as well. This month we'll be married for 16 years but she still is in contact with her friends in the UK. One of her friends came over to Holland last weekend and she brought her boyfriend with her. What this has to do with whisky? Well, her boyfriend likes whisky so...

Gisteren was het zover. De dag waar Jan Beek zolang naartoe geleefd had was aangebroken. Zijn visie op de wereld van de gedistilleerde dranken werd officieel gelanceerd onder zijn eigen merk BEEK Spirits. Plaats van handeling, De Vereeniging in Utrecht. WhiskyOss was er natuurlijk bij.

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?

Glen Keith 22yo and 23yo by Claxton's

Untitled

When I received the lovely box that Adrian Hoose sent me, I immediately made a plan how to review the fine samples that were in it. Nothing fancy, just going upwards with the age of the whisky. I struggled with these two though. Two whisky's distilled at the same distillery and following eachother in age. Let's put them both in one review and compare them.
