Alberta Premium Cask Strength

Thanks to /u/devoz for sharing this dram with me. Alberta is currently a hot topic in Canada. There’s some history there which I won’t be getting into. I won’t be opening that particular can of worms here. That said, it is the origin and part of the name of the whisky I’ll be reviewing today, Alberta Premium Cask […]

Three Linkwood Reviews

The first time I had Linkwood it was chosen for me blind because my equally perverted partner thought it was funny to laugh about a certain Nintendo character getting a boner.

Glenlossie 22 1997 Maltbarn

Thanks to a good friend for pouring me this dram “Hey, want a Glenlossie?” Silence. “It was bottled by Maltbarn” Alright, now we’re talking, where’s my glass? Yeah, I’m not going hunting for Glenlossie normally. I’m a biased, angry old grump who has reviewed enough Speyside scotches that I am basically a foolish Disney villain […]
