11/05 - Whisky and... goose

The last regulars' table of the SSMC of the year 2014 and it ended with another great evening. Goose, red cabbage and dumplings to eat... a lot of good whiskys to drink.

Whisky Cremé Brûlée with grain icecream

I was really impressed by a 23 yo Imperial of the OTL series from Jack Wieber. On the other hand it's no big surprise as I never had a bad bottling from him.

I brought 2 Bunnahabhains with me, the 18 yo. and the Darach Ur, one which was stured in fresh oak casks. Both are not intensive and overpowering, due to this they matched very well with the delicious food.

Another guy brought 2 Glenfarclas, 15 and 21 yo., also interesting to compare them. Two Tobermory were on the table  too, another interesting comparison.

With the year coming to its end, I can definitely say that I had sime really good whiskys in the glass with one highlight still being ahead of me in December. It's planned to join with two friends for dinner and a Bruichladdich Vertical Tasting afterwards... be sure that we'll have some old stuff...

Bottles everywhere...


  1. Love the blog. Lots of good info here. I’m a big fan of whiskey as well as coffee. So I started sourcing and aging beans in whiskey barrels. Now I can get the nice finish of whiskey anytime! Would you be interesting in reviewing our coffee beans for your readers? I can get some free samples out to you. Let me know. Great site!

    1. Hi John,
      thx for your kind words and your feedback which's highly appreciated.
      It would be definitely interesting to review your beans on my blog. I am thinking about an article regarding coffee and cigars for a while as I have a roastery with very good coffee just around the corner.
      Additionally I can imagine that something can be published also in the online cigar magazine ( for which I am also writing. There's also a chance for a cooperation, advertising etc. if you would be interested.
      Just shoot me an email that we can define the details...
      Best regards,
