Trader Joe’s Highland 10

Thanks to /u/ScotchGuy_To  for pouring this at a tasting. I live in what Yuppies call “the shadow lands”, where Trader Joe’s or Pirate Joes (companies that specifically buy Trader Joe’s products and resell them in Canada) don’t exist.

Edradour 3 Ways

So Edradour. Small distillery, releases whisky that’s typically on the younger side, but also cask strength and uses some interesting casks outside of just bourbon or wine. If you can’t tell from that over-the-top delivery, I’m middle-of-the-road on Edradour. You won’t’ see me turning my nose up at them, but you also won’t find me […]
