Century Reserve Lot 15-25

Thanks (I think) to /u/muaddib99 for sharing this dram. And thanks (I know) for hosting the most recent Canadian Reddit Whisky-Nerd meetup. So we, the whisky nerds, herded ourselves downtown to meetup. Each of us brought the drams of shit we didn’t want anymore. Well… not really. We brought a bunch of stuff. And we decided […]

Glen Garioch Vintage 1995

Thanks to /u/muaddib99 for swapping me this sample. Hangovers are funny things. For instance, as I type this, I’ve fought tooth and nail against one. Why? Well I wasn’t drinking whisky. I was drinking port. Because whisky angered me, due to Jim Murray’s stupid announcement. So I went to a house warming party and drank port. […]

Tomintoul ‘Vertical’

So it’s maybe a vertical? I mean, it goes up, but there’s a NAS in here. Better call /u/Loweel[1] in to discuss if it is or not. For now, it’s in quotes. It’s vertical-ish. Even though I’m also missing the 25 year too. A few years ago, when I started doing reviews of whisky (somewhere […]

Ardbeg Supernova 2014

Thanks to /u/Marcovici for this dram. Been having some lower scores lately. Not because I’ve been trying to, just the way it is. I usually plan out my reviews months in advance, due to the amount of samples I have. Decided I wanted something cask strength, or at least high strength, and ridiculous. So I went […]
