White Owl Caramel

This was tasted as part of the Toronto Whisky Society. We were given this bottle from Highwood Distillers for the purpose of reviewing it. We take our reviews seriously, and do not give higher marks because something is free. I appreciate the donation from Highwood. Assuming no one reads that, feel free to call me […]

Lagavulin 1995 – Feis Ile 2014

None the less, in the past year I’ve started exploring more beyond the DEW and the Jameson and landed upon Knappogue Castle. Famous for […]

Tullamore Dew Special Reserve 12

Thanks to /u/Tsefly for the sample. Irish whiskey is introduced to different people in many different ways. Most of us in our teens (I don’t condone teenage drinking, but I’m also not in denial). Some of us have it later on, mixed with coke, and use it to get drunk. A small contingent of us enjoy […]
