Four Balvenie of Interest

I meant to post this quite a while ago, however, I’ve been as sick as a dog, tired, honestly mentally and soul exhausted at being on the internet after the last couple weeks, oh and currently working on reviewing a 400-page book. Not to mention life being life, as usual. Alright, let’s get my bias […]

Balvenie 14 Peated Triple Cask

Thanks to whiskytanuki for taking the amazing pics at the recent tasting. I spoke in my previous review of a Balvenie of the experiments that started back in 2001 and how Balvenie got it’s groove back.. Wait, no, that was a woman who went to the Caribbean. Balvenie just decided to try peated things. The other release […]

Balvenie 14 2002 Peat Week

Thanks to whiskytanuki for taking the amazing pics at the recent tasting. With Spring slowly coming, we all do some spring cleaning. Well those of us who don’t show up on TLC reality shows do at least. For some distilleries, doing runs of unpeated whisky or peated whisky is very similar. They spring clean their distilleries with […]

Balvenie 12 Single Barrel

Thanks to whiskytanuki for taking the amazing pics at the recent tasting. As the Balvenie tasting continued, I was very happy to see Balvenie 12 Single Barrel was part of it. Specifically a member on reddit had asked why I had never tried Balvenie 12 Single Barrel. Sadly the price is a bit up there at the LCBO, and as […]

Balvenie New Make

Thanks to whiskytanuki for taking the amazing pics at the recent tasting. As a Canadian, I live in an interesting environment, and not just because any injury or major illness won’t bankrupt my family and leave us destitute. No, it’s interesting because I try a few more white whiskies than normal. New distilleries pop up and sell […]

Balvenie 21 Portwood [Re-Review]

Thanks to whiskytanuki for taking the amazing pics at the recent tasting. Recently the Toronto Whisky Society was privileged enough to have a Balvenie tasting. And not just any Balvenie tasting, but one with Jame Johnson, our resident Brand Ambassador slash co-host of The Whisky Topic. And I was happy enough to join. The line-up was pretty epic, however […]

Balvenie Triple Cask 12

Thanks to /u/Boyd86 for this sample. More finishes make better whiskies right? And more organs mean more healthy? Not to mention more chefs makes the broth fucking great, right? I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: If I ever uppercut a dolphin, I’ll both feel successful, silly, and deeply hurt, all at the […]

Balvenie Madeira Cask 17

Thanks to /u/ScotChen for this sample. It was pretty amaze-balls. Sometimes we do things that we deserve to treat ourselves. It can be little things, like remembering a friend’s favourite food and delivering it to them. Sometimes it’s personal things, like taking a walk and feeling better about your health. Sometimes it’s just smiling at a […]
