I am certainly not the first to call the Glendronach “Revival” a great Whisky. I might even be the last blogger to say so. At least about the Version discontinued in 2015. It seems that Brown-Foreman have now resurrected a “Re-Revival” of the 15 year old. There has been some positive reviews so far, but I have yet to try what Rachel Barrie has conjured up. If it is in any way close to the previous version I will happily restock my shelves.
For now I will enjoy the remainder of the bottle with a suitable song. As far as passion for their work goes, I think Mark Knopfler and Billy Walker have a lot in common. So the song i recommend while sipping on the Glendronach of your choice is a simple, yet meditative song about a guitar maker. Enjoy
Artist: Mark Knopfler
Let me tell you: That Glencoe is a blast! If you can find it, snatch it up. You won’t regret it. Now, since today is the 44th anniversary of Hip-Hop, we will play the “Anthem” of Break-Beats. This Track brings me just as much joy and satisfaction as the Whisky…and it was heavily played in the 80’s. Hope you can relate.
Artist: Grandmaster Flash (Incredible Bongo Band)
Artist: Pink Floyd
Track: Another Brick In The Wall
This Clynelish is smooth and creamy. A great Whisky to sip and relax. Maybe on the front porch or next to a fire place. But one should really have a rocking chair to get the full experience.
So with no further ado: Eric Clapton!
Artist: Eric Clapton
Track: Rocking Chair
We have a winner. No surprise really, since Springbank is one of the most consistent and dedicated distilleries around. Producing consistently good quality as well. So grab a Springbank 12 CS, poor yourself a dram and listen to the radio playing at the Campeltow docks.
Artist: Otis Redding
Track: (Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay
A worthy winner. Solid performance, classic appeal and just right for any time of the day… (…after Lunch, we’re not alcoholics! Are we?). I know just the song to match this profile. Mind you, the boys in the clip are not performing quite like our Whisky here but I am sure they would feel alot better after having one 😂
Artist: Dire Straits
Track: Walk Of Life
It seems we have a winner. This is what you could call a Lemon-Bomb! And so, I have appropriately chosen the following Track (the image is a link). Pour yourself an Glenlossie and ponder the days gone by…
Artist: Led Zeppelin
Track: The Lemon Song
The Kilkerran wins this one by a smidgen. Close but a fair winner. Pour yourself a Kilkerran and lets see what music I can come up with. The future of Kilkerran is bright, so here comes the sun. The image is linked to youtube for your convenience.
Artist: The Beatles
Track: Here comes the Sun
With Spanish subs, tribute to the Sherry casks…lol
If you have a Kilchoman on hand, please pour yourself a glass. The “Sanaig” we just tried is a “dirty Whisky” and this calls for a “dirty” Soundtrack. So here you have it: RAW POWER meets RAW POWER
The below image is now linked to the song for your convenience…your welcome 🙂
Artist: ZZ Top
Track: My head’s in Mississippi
Good fun and big shout out to “Ruudboy”.
Something Airy and light might be appropriate. Some easy listening…
Let’s see what we can dig up.
Artist: Michael Doublé (wood)
Track: I Just haven’t found you yet
This might very well be the apology of the distillery for making this Whisky.. lol
