Potstill Festival is a whisky and spirit festival organised by importer and distributor van Wees in Amersfoort, where we already have been to for some years, and has grown into a tradition with a growing group of friends. Besides whisky, they have a wide selection of cognac, eua-de-vie, armagnac, grappa, rum and other distilled products available, most of them represented by the distillers themselves. This year was the twelfth edition of the festival, and we were lucky enough to go there for two three-hour sessions on the Saturday.

In our stories about the travels we make, we do not only visit Scotland, but also explore outside that beautiful country. A Friday morning in September we decided to take a road trip after work and go to the Dutch island called Texel for the weekend and just relax and have the wind in our hair and feet in the sand.

Compass Box range in order to explore what they have put together in their next production. Their labels with crazy good artwork can be spotted in many whisky shops, but sadly they do not always get the prominent spot they deserve. For many people it is an unknown "niche" blend-brand they would easily skip, and grab a bottle of their known favorite single malt, which is a shame, and no good reason not to check them out.

In the Twitter Tasting of Tomatin earlier this week organized by the Whisky Wire we had the pleasure to experience the four latest expressions next to each other of Tomatin's Cuatro Series. The samples were tasted blind and accompanied with four smaller samples of something misterious. These turned out to be the four different types of Sherry of which the casks were used to mature the whiskies.

Maltstock 2014 is over. For the sixth time, the event was organized in an accommodation "het Buitencentrum" in a small oak-and-pine forest in Overasselt, close to the city of Nijmegen in the south-east of the Netherlands. This was only our second visit to the relaxed whisky weekend, but it has already become clear that the dates of 25, 26 and 27 September 2015 will already be blocked in WhiskySpeller's calendar.
