The hunt for amazing Glenrothes

Glenrothes has always been “there”. It’s not typically on any (in my whisky group) “must buy” list, their OBs don’t really excite too many people (typically, and again, just from what I’ve read, YMMV), but they have their fans. I’m sure of it. Why? Because I’ve had them poured for me. And based on reviews, […]

We’re here to discuss Bowmore. And for that I have a less controversial opinion: Bowmore is tasty when not bottled by Bowmore. Why? Well… capitalism. But […]

Teeling 10 2008 Single Cask

Thanks to /u/smoked_herring[+2] for this sample. As Teeling continues to grow and age it’s own whiskey, we’re going to see more of their whiskey in the mix and less of what they’ve sourced (which they haven’t officially disclosed, and I’m not going to mention since it always turns into a debate when I do). Part of me […]
