It has been a while, but I attended a tweet tasting. And again, it was a blast.
This time it was inaugural Scalasaig Island Hopper release, which has a limited release to 3,000 bottles.
The whisky has been produced using ten unique casks of single malt whisky with a distinctly maritime style, which were vatted by and re-racked into first-fill European sherry oak casks to finish their maturation.
Another tweet tasting from The Whisky Wire I looked really forward to!

The Benromach Range, the 150th tweet-tasting of The Whisky Wire. A special event celebrated with fellow whisky enthusiasts, The Whisky Wire and Benromach on Wednesday January 30 2019.
What could be a better way to spend a Wednesday evening, the break of the week with a lot of laughter and sharing experiences.
Exactly, there isn’t.
It was time to review a whisky for a second time, that is what I thought spontaneously. The last time I wrote about Inchmoan 12 yr, Loch Lomond Whiskies, was during a tweet tasting organized by The Whisky Wire in the summer of 2017. Soooooooo that’s a while ago.
Now, It was a cold winter’s day when the thought came to mind, that I wanted to try this whisky again, just a feeling, a hunch. And it was a good feeling for I really enjoyed this dram. But this time it was a wee bit different.
The GlenAllachie Distillery, located in Aberlour, Scotland. A distillery with a fabulous core range. A ranch everyone was excited about the last couple of weeks and still are for those who are still dreaming about their very first GlenAllachie nip. Dreams must come true, to make more space for new dreams or should I say; Drams.
There is a lot of love in this whisky …
Loch Lomond & Glen Scotia
The Loch Lomond Group is an independent distiller and blender of some of the finest and rarest Scotch whiskies in the world. And they have proven themselves on the night of this twitter tasting.
An amazing range of whisky was waiting patiently to be opened and to be enjoyed.
You see six bottles on the picture, only five passed the online tasting and one will be enjoyed at a later time, Glen Scotia Double Cask, for my personal pleasure.
An evening with good company, batch strength and in a limited edition, 6000 bottles each.
An exciting online whisky tasting with the Hive Batch Strength, Spice King Batch Strength and Peat Chimney Batch Strength bottlings, along with a special smoky old fashioned cocktail, Rob Roy.
We received the order to leave Rob Roy in the chill zone. I kept him next to the cheese and the salad. Rob Roy needed to wait until the sign and when that time came, Rob Roy also was free to pour himself into a glass.
Glen Moray Range
This evening I was teaming up again with other whisky enthusiasts to share, sip and savour a gaggle of the glorious whisky of Glen Moray. An evening with a lot of laughter and discoveries. You can read all about these discoveries on Twitter by using the following link #GlenMoray.
Glen Moray, you say? Glen Moray Single Malt is a Speyside single malt whiskey produced in the Glen Moray Glenlivet Distillery in Elgin, Moray, Scotland.

Thursday november 19. It’s very windy outside. But I am cozy inside my house and it is warm, lovely. Tonight was the night of the #CraigellachieTT a Twitter Tasting. Just came home for work, just on time for the start of something warm and cozy. So let’s go and enjoy this with me. I had a great time after a long day at work.
On the night of September the 23rd, there was a real whisky happening on Twitter. From around the world people were ready to do some serious nosing and tasting, including me.
This time it was Wemyss’s turn.The range of whisky that came with the package was stunning. Just for this evening I used the NEAT glass for an optimal experience.
I have to admit, it has been a while since I last used the NEAT glass.
