Michel Couvreur 12 Overaged Malt

(Thanks to /u/Devoz for the dram!) So I’m a little giddy to review this one, because I’m a child. Awhile ago there was some subreddit drama that made me giggle. The creation of /r/realscotch was caused by a certain individual asking for a review of Michel Couvreur Special Vatting. To say the least, I haven’t been able […]

Chivas Royal Salute 21

(Thanks to /u/Jolarbear for this sample!) Continuing on with my series named “The Blender: A totally not rip-off of /u/tintin777‘s review series”, I moved along to another well known and respected blend group, Chivas. Chivas and I have not had the best of whisky friendships. While I will enjoy a dram of it while out with […]

Dimple 15

(Special thanks to /u/slackerdude for this sample) Now to continue the series I’m calling “The Blender: A totally not rip-off of /u/tintin777‘s review series”. Up next we have a blend made primarily of Glenkinchie malt, with some “more northernly distilleries” thrown in for good measure, including Linkwood, of which we know is always good. That seems […]

Compass Box Quintuple Review [Orangerie, Spice Tree, The Peat Monster, Flaming Heart, Great King Street Artist’s Blend)

(Special thanks to /u/slackerdude, /u/Jolarbear, and /u/ziggy1283 for the samples. You’re all very good people) It’s that time of year people. The time when we’re all ready for it: The Blend-a-Thon! Yup, my completely unique.. wait, what? /u/tintin777 has been doing a blend-a-thon? Or a vatted-a-thon? Well fuck. That’s what I get for waiting months to finally review […]

Glenrothes 1997 The Ultimate

(Thanks to /u/Scotch_Fanatic for this dram) Ever have one of those moments where you’re sure you’ve never had something, or even something from that group, and then you find out you have. I was sure I hadn’t had moose for the longest time, and then my mother reminded me I had. My wife is pretty sure […]

Masterson’s 10 Straight Rye

(Thanks to /u/Devoz for this dram.) I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: We all have biases, and we all fight to at least quell them a little bit. We all also have a moral code, made up of prejudices and annoyances of things we do ourselves or have had done to us that […]

Highland Park 2001 Vintage

(Thanks to /u/slackerdude for the sample) Replacements are never smooth. Soap Operas go out of their way to announce when a new actor is playing a character on a show. That 70’s show even made a joke about the actress Laurie being replaced. I’m sure that at least a small amount of people here have had […]
