Jameson Irish Whiskey

So you finish off your Canuck’s, and then what do you move onto next? What’s that? Aussies? Well of course, that’s the better choice, or even Japanese or Indian. Heck, some US single malts are a good plan too. Or maybe you start drinking the three Islay’s you picked up, or the three Ontario Single […]

Armorik Breton Classic Single Malt

So when you think whiskey, you usually jump first to Scotland, then to the US, Canada, Ireland, and if you’ve gotten into it, Japan, India, and Australia.

Dirty Scotch monkeys…) Anyway, as I’ve said before, Lagavulin 16 is my go-to “someone else is […]

Ardbeg Corryvreckan

Received a sample of this elusive Scotch from glinsvad. That dude knows how to swap, gave me an Islay care package. Go buy him a chocolate bar… unless he’s lactose-intolerant, then go buy him a dram, he’s awesome. I really enjoy Ardbeg. I can honestly say it’s my favourite Scotch maker. Wish they weren’t so […]
