Benromach 39 1968 Sherry Cask

I went into this whisky with a mixed group of feelings. It was part of a higher-end tasting I missed. Knowing some of the other people at it (and what they drink and their ability to drink good things), I had high expectations. On the other hand, it’s a Benromach. Sure, it’s Benromach 39 1968 Sherry […]

Islay Mist 17

Thanks to for sharing a dram of this with me. There’s always a question of what to drink on a regular basis. Now I’m not saying drink excessively. If you need a whisky reviewer to tell you that, then… holy damn, get some help. Call someone you love. Even if you think they won’t answer. But […]

Bruichladdich 18 (2nd edition)

Thanks to /u/cake_my_day for this sample Seems a little silly having Bruichladdich 18 (2nd edition) prior to having the 1st edition, however my love of completing things in video games is a lot harder in real life when Bruichladdich is concerned. I mean, I gave up with the damn feathers in Assassin’s Creed 2, and they are a cake […]

Kavalan Sextuple Review (King Car Conductor, Single Malt, Solist Ex-Bourbon, Solist Sherry, Solist Fino Sherry, Solist Vinho Barrique)

Taiwan. Land of… that video with that one racist fuck wit. And otherwise really nice people. Not that I’d know. I’ve worked with two Taiwanese people, and they were cool, however I don’t want to paint an entire culture with two Canadian-Taiwanese people who I worked with. So Taiwan, what’s up with that? Well they […]

anCnoc 16

Actual first Scotch review of 2016! Yay! Oh? No one cares? It’s an arbitrary date in time that really means very little and I’m happy due to being on vacation? Okay then. There are some whiskies out there that are consistently offered up as recommendations. On here it would be Laphroaig Quarter Cask, Alberta Premium […]

Hakushu 18

First review of 2016! Let’s get… completely and utterly calm and review a World Whisky! Okay, so Japanese Whisky and I haven’t always gotten along. And it’s not for either of us not trying. I try it. And it screams as I drink it. Wait, no, that’s the start to my new novel, “The Drinks […]

Gibson’s Finest Rare 12

Now for Part 2 of my Xmas tradition, stealing booze from my Uncle and doing a review. So, time to review Gibson’s Finest Rare 12, known for a recent commercial series where they point out that they could have pulled it at 3 years, but left it in for 12. Which I appreciate. This one […]

At the time of this tasting it’s Xmas time. And as is Xmas tradition for me, I raid my Uncle’s cabinet and review something in there. This year two somethings. But let’s start with the first something, and leave the other something to later. Up first is Kilbeggan, an Irish whiskey named after St Bécán, […]
