Bulleit Bourbon

Just posted my 100th Scotch review, and thought that I should get all the upgrading out of the way, so here’s my 10th Bourbon review. My last dram in the UK, and of course, it’s a Bourbon. See my earlier rant about finding things in Canada for why. Also it is time for me to […]

Amrut Peated Cask Strength

When I was at Cadenhead’s in Edinburgh, I noticed they had some Amrut. And I mentioned it. The gentlemen there said “I’d go for Amrut over most of the other distilleries in Scotland. They are doing things right.” For the oldest independent bottler in Edinburgh to say that an Indian distillery is doing things right […]

George T. Stagg 2012

So as I’ve said before, I am not the Bourbon drinker in my family. That’d be my dad. Neither of us like beer, he likes red wine and I like dessert wine, and he drinks Bourbon, and I drink Canadian/Scotch. And we get along on that giving each other sips of each others favourites. So […]

Johnnie Walker Gold Reserve

So if you haven’t read my last review, you won’t know that all the whiskies in the bar I was in were 2 pound 50 p. Now you do. See what I did there? Anyway, I didn’t know this when I walked up to order my second dram (and some water to clear my mouth […]

Glengoyne 10

Nearing the end of our trip, and wanted to try something different. We were in Birmingham, and the hidden away Neo-Tudor building seemed to be calling us from the ultra modernistic mall (where I stupidly passed up buying Kilchoman 100% Islay 2nd release).. The bar itself was really nice, and looked old, especially for us […]

Caol Ila Moch

If I may wax in a Gourmand philosophical manner (which is normal in an entire subreddit on long aged spirits that have very little nutritional value), knowing your tastebuds is an ongoing practice in patience. You have to drink a lot of bad bath water before you get to the Crystal. The same can be […]

Old Pulteney 21

Awhile ago, we had a community review for Old Pulteney 12 that I took part in[1] . And while I was happy to try out this specific dram, as you can tell, I wasn’t the biggest fan. Granted if you’ve been following along, it’s a bitter, salty Highland. And as a person who is already […]

Bushmills Black Bush

Back to reality for a little bit, where I don’t to a review on a Scotch every couple of hours. It’s time to knuckle down and do an Irish. I know, I know. You feel bad for me, running out of Scotches to review and having to drink another interesting whisky from a part of […]

Maker’s Mark

Awhile ago (5 years?) I was sent down to Kentucky/Ohio (right on the border, near Cincinnati) on a surprise training trip. Being the first time I had traveled for business, I was a little overwhelmed, however much to their credit, the people down in Kentucky/Ohio were pretty awesome and welcoming, bringing me out for great […]
