Thanks to /u/devoz, /u/distillasian, /u/neversafeforlife, /u/xile_, and /u/whiskylads for the swaps. Oh, and this is my 500th Scotch review. So I’ll take my crown please. A lot of people here have been in the situation that Bruichladdich must have been prior to releasing Octomore. There they are, making a living on Islay, surrounded by history […]

Mortlach 15 (Gordon & MacPhail)

Thanks to /u/Schockwaves for this sample So close to 500 Scotch reviews. But why aren’t I reviewing something ridiculous, like a ex-Arrack cask Scotch that was aged in the Hebrides after having cherrywood smoke used to dry the malt. But let’s get away from my insane fever dream of a whisky and get to why, […]

Knappogue Castle 16

Thanks to /u/toadpooh for this sample. In the year 1966, a very rich American gentleman by the name of Mark E. Andrews bought a decrepit 15th century castle named Knappogue Castle. Normally that’s the beginning of some sort of “Cultural Appropriation is Bad” film, and in the end, the valiant people of the area will rise […]

Virginia Black

Thanks to /u/jolarbear for this sample. I think. In the immortal words of Ashley from Degrassi: The Next Generation: I’m not ready. Luckily Drake has my back in the very next line: Good. Because to tell you the truth, neither am I. But perhaps I’m jumping ahead: Lat me show you what it is. Because when […]

Ardmore Adelphi Fascadale Batch 9

Thanks, for one final (for this series, at least) dram from /u/xile_. And then I needed to uber home, because I’m quite discombobulated. Quite the Adelphi braggart these days, aren’t I? I promise, I’ll do some other IB soon. And maybe the odd OB too. But that’s in the future (or the past, or the […]
