  • Epaulet x Styleforum Alpine Loden Collection

    Loden wool, woven in Tirol for centuries, is known for its resistance to cold and wetness. Our project in collaboration with Epaulet introduces Alpine Loden, a modern 18oz fabric blend of 75% merino wool and 25% nylon, woven in Italy. It's lighter, more durable, wind-resistant, and more comfortable than traditional Loden fabric. Partnering with Rochester Tailored Clothing, we offer custom garments like sportcoats, suits, and overcoats, made to your specifications. Learn more about the Loden collection here.

How is it?
Reminds me I have a couple bottles of 16yo that I haven’t come back to in a while. Should rectify that.
VERY good (nose just gets better and better with time in glass), but it’s always a bit of a double edged sword with the quality to cost dynamic, ya know?
If you can overlook the cost, it’s fantastic. If not, still very good, but hard pressed to say it’s “worth” X hundreds of dollars.
Have been wanting to pick up a new 16. Highly enjoyable when I last had it.

This is so darn enjoyable. Oddly and pleasantly tart, I’d say, certainly on finish.

This is really enjoyable, even moreso considering the relatively reasonable price

Edit: forgot to mention the screwtop cork. Really love that, it somehow actually adds to the experience as well 😂

My god, I saw this at a local Bevmo for $179, if memory serves.
I believe they've updated/possibly mistagged, because that is WILDLY above even the most expensive I've seen

I’m a sucker lol. It’s certainly a novel pour, and the mentholic finish is absolutely a thing. Does that mean it’s good? Eh.
Fun to experience, but Corry any day.

Since it’s BD time, figured I’d crack this one bottled in 2020, so thanks to GlenDronach also experiencing some of the issues mentioned in the article above, it’s closer to 25 years old instead of 21.
