Auchentoshan 18

I like Lowland whisky. Quite a bit actually. I’d go so far as to say it’s in the top three regions. Granted that’s not based on my scores, and there’s so few Lowlands, so it could come out differently in the wash. What I will say is this: When I drink a Lowland, I know […]

Sazerac Rye 6

Thanks to /u/Devoz for being my main hook-up for all things Bourbon, yet again. So I’m going to say something as a Canadian that may sound whiney. And it is. But you American’s don’t get how lucky you really are. Don’t sputter, wait for it. Sure, we have all these nice things like beavers, universal healthcare, […]

Aberfeldy 12

Sometimes I need to walk back amongst the mortals. Especially after being on vacation. Thanks to /u/ounknownto for the sample to help that out. Getting down to earth means not just reviewing all the silly stuff that we all go a little bit too nuts over. Granted after this one that’s all of my next 3 […]

Bowmore Devil’s Cask Batch 1

And I’ve finally caught up. I even had enough time before I became sick to crack open a sample from the amazing wunderkind /u/devoz! Thanks man! I had bought a bottle of Bowmore Devil’s Cask a few months ago. Had a lot of trouble deciding whether or not I should buy it. First up: I’ve […]
