High West Rendezvous Rye

Thanks to /u/I_SAID_NO_GOLDFISH for the sample Screw it. Let’s go on a kick. No, not a Rye kick, though given the last whiskey I reviewed was also High West, and was also mostly rye, who would blame you for thinking that? Pol Pot, that’s who. No, instead I’m going for a few whiskies from High West. […]

High West Bourye (2014)

Thanks to /u/cnbrown313 for this sample. I’ve been told I had to try High West Bourye. So I did. There, intro done. Nice job /u/TOModera . Seriously though, when I last have reviewed the lonely distiller in the middle of Hell Utah, I’ve had quite a few people tell me I had to get my hands […]

And I don’t blame them: It’s an Island, and Canada has Byzantine laws concerning the Devil’s happy water. But then, in the deep parts of the city (well… a basement), I […]

Schenley Golden Wedding

Recently went on vacation. It wasn’t to somewhere outside of Canada, thus there haven’t been any posts from me for awhile. That said, I’m still a whisky drinker at heart, and even in the Savage Jelly Bean wilds of Newfoundland (see: St. John’s), I found some whiskies I have never reviewed before. Or rather my […]
