Coming Soon…

Happy New Year, everyone. I hope everyone toasted the year that ended and the year that started with something nice. I’ve decided to ring in the new year by doing something a little different. No, I’m not going to stop being a miserable bastard. Instead, I will briefly suspend my informal policy of not posting timely reviews and will start the year with reviews of eight newly released whiskies, all from Cadenhead’s. These were all purchased and split with friends in my tasting group here in town and I am hoping that some of them will actually comment on my notes. After all, when I began the blog I’d thought they would be 90% of my audience; instead it’s turned out that while I’ve now got a larger readership than I’d ever imagined I would, none of these local fuckers ever look at it. The rest of the month will see reviews of whiskies from distilleries that I have not previously reviewed.

The following reviews are scheduled:

Auchentoshan 14, 1999 (Cadenhead’s Small Batch)
Auchroisk 12, 2001 (Cadenhead’s Small Batch)
Balmenach, 1979-1998 (Scott’s Selection)
Ben Nevis 17, 1996 (Cadenhead’s Small Batch)
Braes of Glenlivet 16, 1997 (Cadenhead’s Small Batch)
Braes of Glenlivet 1977-1997 (Glenhaven)
Caol Ila 22, 1991 (Cadenhead’s Small Batch)
Elijah Craig 12
Fettercairn 16, 1995 (Signatory)
Glencadam 21, 1981 (Blackadder)
Glendullan 17, 1996 (Cadenhead’s Small Batch)
Glenlochy 29, 1980 (Signatory)
Glen Grant 15, 1997 (Cadenhead’s Small Batch)
Glen Scotia 20, 1992 (Archives)
Glen Spey 21, 1989
Ledaig 16, 1997 (Cadenhead’s Small Batch)
Parker’s Heritage, “Promise of Hope”
Power’s John Lane
Redbreast 12 CS
Royal Lochnagar 14, 1996 (A.D. Rattray)
St. Magdalene 19, 1979, Rare Malts
Teaninich 12, 1994 (G&M)

These reviews are already lined up. As I was off for most of December I was able to get ahead of the game; a good thing as we’re off to India for a little less than a month soon and I will certainly not be reviewing whiskies while there (though I do hope to drink some with old friends). However, I might be moved to do some brief write-ups of some meals and if I do some of January’s schedule might slide down to February.

I hope those of you who were kind enough to be regular readers and commenters last year will stick with me for at least another year and that some others will join in.
