Johnnie Walker 10 Triple Grain American Oak / Johnnie Walker 10 Select Casks – Rye Cask Finish

Thanks to twiddleDD for these samples. I don’t avoid blends, I merely weep for their current state. I’ve said it before that grain whisky takes a long time to be flavourful. So when you then take said grain whisky and then mix it with a blend that has an age statement denoting that the required amount of […]

1792 Sweet Wheat

I don’t really know what people think about the 1792 brand. I mean, I have enjoyed some of their offerings. I had one of their single casks that tasted like the cinnamon challenge covered in peaches. So I’m debating it too. What I will give the company is they certainly like trying new things. Port […]
