Talisker 10

Wow, 50 Scotch reviews. Never thought I’d actually hit this milestone. Go me. After reviewing 3 rare malts, it’s probably time to step down from my ivory Scotch tower and go back to some of the regular Scotch/World Whisky samples, and try to mellow out my palate once and for all. Or at least stop […]

Aberfeldy 21 [Request]

I recently had a nice night of drams and great company out at my favourite whisky pub in Toronto, Feather’s. And like each time I go there, I have a few great drams and do some reviews. For this trip I polled /r/Scotch[1] to find what the community would recommend, and a great number of […]

Macallan Fine Oak 10

I have now (almost) caught up on my world whisky samples. And I’ve been having quite a few rare, expensive whiskies versus some of the staples. So it’s time to drop back down to the Advanced/Beginner Scotch list, at least for one or two drams. I’m bad at reading maps. I’ll just say that right […]

Yamazaki 18

Every so often I take a moment, and look back at some of the drams I’ve had the chance to review some amazing, amazing drams. Drams that I’m so lucky to have had, I can’t believe it. I’m honestly humbled and shocked. Especially the ones I’ve gotten in swaps. The Yamazaki 18 is one of […]

Amrut Fusion

Who is pacifen? Awesome sauce, that’s who. And the person who sent me a great sample of the next dram I’ll be reviewing, Amrut Fusion. Last week I reviewed the Amrut Cask Strength, granted a day late. I’ve been cutting back on drinking the past while, and exercising/working has taken up a lot of my […]

Amrut Cask Strength

You know what’s a great way to try different whiskies? /r/ScotchSwap. Seriously great people over there. One of my most recent swaps was with an awesome person named /u/pacifen , and seriously, this was a pretty great swap. I’ve been jonesing to try different types of world whisky, and unfortunately (as everyone is sick of […]

Caol Ila 12

Yet another thank you to glinsvad for sending me an Islay care-package swap. This guy is awesome, go pat him on the back and buy him a dram. Caol Ila is one of those distilleries that seems like no one reviews, and then 5 reviews pop up in one day. Or it seems like people […]
