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 […]

Lochside 47 1965 Adelphi

Thanks to /u/ScotchGuyTO for sharing this dram “Hey, I got something you should try” When someone with more whisky under his/her built says this to you, you feign respect but secretly get excited and say “oh yes”. Somehow the song Oh Yeah by Yello (Google that) starts playing out of nowhere. What am I offered? Why a […]

Dalwhinnie Distillery Bottling

Clynelish 18 1997 Archives

It’s an ex-bourbon cask Clynelish. Which some people love, […]

GlenDronach 8 – The Hielen

Simple whisky this time. I was at a bar, well known for a good selection of whiskies, however I had blown my whisky budget and didn’t have much time before my plans started. GlenDronach 8 – The Hielen was my pick. It’s about time, really. I had forgotten some of the younger malts and should catch […]

North Star Millennial Range

So you are an independent bottler. No, not because I said so, I don’t have that power. My superpower is leaving a film on glass, and someday the X-men will call because they are fighting the Sparkler. Marvel, call me for phase 5, I’m awesome. Back to my original point: You’re working as an independent […]
