Queen of the Moorlands Whiskies Reviewed by Whisky Online Blog

Angus from the Whisky Online blog has reviewed some of our best Queen of the Moorlands Rare Cask bottlings and has written a great post about how our first bottlings came about....

Check out the post at......



  1. Dave, that is a good read. It is also clear from the first photo that you are indeed the brains of the operation.
    I take it from my reading on flyforums that you have gone over to the dark side and joined the Peacock syndicate, i hope the fishing continues to be good for you and the lads. I have been experimenting with a different sort of dark side, namely sweetcorn, prawns and pellets. Thought I'd give it a go as I heard that is what the LADFFA committee use at Dovedale.
    All the best, Dave.

  2. Bet you get rid of this, Dave!

    Can I congratulate you on a super review of your whisky stuff.
    It got me pissed good style, I can tell you!
    It is a testament to all your hard work. I wish you well.
    Here is my review of your 7.5% white cider , plastic bottling 2010. Bogof
    On opening the bottle I was very impressed with the way the tasteful green screw top let out a most welcome fizz… and then an aroma of recently introduced sulfites which reminded me of a past holiday in an uninhabited Greek island yet to introduce adequate sewerage facilities. Delightful.

    On the first quaff I detected hints of apple and the undertones of white spirit.
    Then on the tongue I distinctively thought salt, a taste of fresh fish and hairs. It just took me back into another world I suppose.
    Another glug made me want mor. In fct I am goin to open the other bottle in a min.
    God man, yu sell some gud stuff . We are Stoke, wear stoke wer stoke nah nah nah nah.

  4. Hi Dave, it is amazing who reads your blog!
    I've just been PM'd by a 'Rob Parker' from Maryland across the pond, who wants me to fill in for him at a place called 'shatto molton rothchild' this week end, all expenses paid. He has mouth thrush. Apparently I have to do some 'en primeur' tasting of a boredow that won't even be ready for another 45 years. Sod that, I'm booked on Blithfield
    DCAC would be vexed and get mardy if I cancelled
