The Bruichladdich Still Series

Thanks to /u/Whiskyjig and /u/xile_ for the samples. Hi all, back again with a series that’s not really around anymore. Back when I wasn’t an experienced amateur and was more of a completely ignorant whisky amateur, I happened in Scotland. And like most people who aren’t reviewing constantly, I didn’t realize that those Golden, Red, and super Black bottles […]

Royal Brackla 16

Thanks to /u/cpfselfbuilt for this sample. Michael Jackson once said that Royal Brackla was in Speyside. Most other reviewers placed it in the Highlands though, making our future discussions of whisky. I’ve never reviewed a Royal Brackla, unlike the former King of Reviewers. I seem to have missed this Bacardi owned whisky, and should fix that. The […]

Thanks to /u/cpfselfbuilt for this sample. Japanese whisky.

Oh, by the way: Based on the Japanese whiskies that I’ve had, I’m […]

Mortlach Rare Old

At least that’s it for me. A few years ago, I didn’t have many chances to try Mortlach […]

Redbreast 21

Thanks to /u/cpfselfbuilt for this sample. It’s about time I got around to this dram. I mean, I somehow waited until after it was noted as one of the whiskies of the year, for all that means. I mean, it means that everyone who isn’t a whisky nerd is going to be asking about it and we’ll […]

Compass Box Glasgow Blend

Thanks to /u/throzen for the sample. I recently went on and on about blends, stating how much I enjoy going back to them even though the scores are typically lower. Note I say “typically” there, to denote a time when they aren’t lower, and to raise suspicion in my reader. See, I too took English in high […]
