Review #888 – Don Q Gran Anejo

This is a solera vatted rum containing contents “up to 12 years old, but between 9 and 12 years old” with no disclosed proportions combined with some portion of “solera rums up to 50 years” aged in sherry casks.

Review #884 – Glenfiddich XX

“The second release in Glenfiddich’s Experimental Series is their Project XX expression, which was made not simply by one Malt Master, but 20! 20 Malt Masters were invited to the Glenfiddich distillery and invited them to pick any expression from the thousands of casks maturing in the warehouse. The 20 chosen whiskies were then married by Malt Master Brian Kinsman to create this single malt you see before your eyes.” – Master of Malt

Review #880 – Stranahan’s Snowflake #20: Quandary Peak

This is a limited edition release from Stranahan’s in Colorado. They distill American single malt whiskey, and often sport fun maturations, finishes, and blends for the Snowflake releases. Named Quandary Peak, this is their twentieth release. It begins by being matured for 24 months in new oak barrels, and then goes off to be finished in a variety of casks before being blended back together.
