Johnnie Walker Black Label

I… I think I completely forgot I had reviewed this one until I found a review sitting around. Guess that goes to show, eventually you can drink too much whisky, have too much fun, and eat too much butter. Side note: Seriously, why do people rag on English food so much? I really enjoyed it! […]

Clynelish 14

Last full day in the UK, and I wanted to end my long, long list of whisky reviews (oh god my liver hurts) with an advanced, interesting, and sometimes maligned dram before leaving. Yup, it’s time to review another from the Next Level malts list, the Clynelish 14. I happened to butch the name as […]

Auchentoshan Heartwood

It’s no secret (or at least it shouldn’t be a secret) that I feel there should be more Lowland reviews on /r/Scotch[1] .

Dalmore 15

As I mentioned in my past review of Dalmore 12, I’ve run low on really rare malts to try at our favourite pub in Leicester, The Parcel Yard. Thus I’m forced to try out some malts that I can’t get back home that I typically move away from. Dalmore’s are not cheap. That’s a given […]

Dalmore 12

We’re all starting to hit that point in the trip where it turns out that our otherwise healthy habits of not running and eating food with butter in it aren’t helping us walk 4 hours a day and drink every day. Go figure, eh? Unfortunately, the bar I’ve been enjoying, the Parcel Yard in Leicester, […]
