Buffalo Trace White Dog Mash #1

Thanks to /u/devoz for sharing this sample with me. A few people have asked me: Why do you review everything? And the answer I usually give is simple: Mental Illness. But beyond that, I learn new things each time I review anything. And it’s taken me a long time to realize that white whiskies have something […]

Do Good Distillery

I’d like to start by thanking Do Good for these free samples. They were gracious and nice enough to patiently wait until we could receive them in the US, and legally bringing it back so that multiple members of the Toronto Whisky Society could try 4 of their offerings. But let’s not get ahead of […]

Kavalan Port Cask Solist

Thanks to /u/theslicknick6 for this sample. I’ve had quite a few Kavalan whiskies. Sadly the one I liked the most is about as easy as finding an unopened beer at a teen’s party at 2am. But enough has been written about Vinho Barrique. Now my second favourite whisky was Concertmaster. Which I still think has a […]

Akashi White Oak 5 Sherry Cask

Thanks to /u/theslicknick6 for this sample. If I have “oops” in my whisky reviews, it would be not getting around to some distilleries. One of which is White Oak Distillery, which I’m told is in the Hyogo prefecture. It’s too bad I’m utterly terrible at geography, or that would have significance to me. The distillery is […]

Bulleit Bourbon 10

Thanks to /u/boyd86 for this sample. So you may be wondering, like me, what’s up with life? But we’re not here to talk about that. We’re here to answer a different question. Most of you have had Bulleit Bourbon. Or rather, you’ve had Bulleit Bourbon Frontier Whisky. And maybe you’ve had the Indiana made Bulleit Rye. […]

Wemyss Peat Chimney 12

Thanks to /u/boyd86 for this sample. Wemyss. i can honestly say I haven’t had anything from this independent bottler and blender. Which says more about me then them, if we’re being honest. I really should get my shit together on that. Wemyss has two different lines: Their Single Casks, which have cool names, and their blends, […]

Thomas H. Handy Sazerac Rye 2015

Thanks to /u/boyd86 for this sample. All aboard the hype train! I’m drinking a BTAC! Oh, wait, that’s stupid. Okay, so back down to normal. We hear about these whiskies coming out, we hear about people camping out, we laugh, we get a chance to have some, and even some of us (myself included) join in, […]
