Ardmore 22 2000 Whisky Sponge

What was the occasion: I had a buddy who was debating buying this whisky. Due to many factors in my life at this time, I don’t spend as long drinking as I used to. Not going into that. Whatever the reason eventually drives me to drink… Wait, that sounded negative, let me be very clear, a […]

Ardmore 14 2000 Exclusive Casks

Thanks to /u/ScotchGuy_TO  for sharing a dram of this with me. I’m a fan of Ardmore, and thankfully my ability to say I like something turning into worldwide popularity isn’t a thing. So during the “end of year” whisky tasting, there were some extra whiskies that I had to take home, and this is one of them. […]

To recap: /u/xile_ (his real name, really) had us all over for a mystery lineup. I brought brownies. That’s really not useful to the review.

Ardmore SMWS 66.65 “Holy smoke!”

Thanks to /u/Catharticintent for this sample This is a continuation of my ongoing series that I’m calling “Scotch Malts, Wife’s Selection”, in which my wife goes through my backlog of SMWS (Scotch Malt Whisky Society) samples that I haven’t reviewed yet, pours them blind, and then I review it blind. As I’ve said in my previous review, one […]
