Laphroaig Cairdeas 2020

I’m always a year or more behind when it comes to Cairdeas releases. Not only are they not easy to get your hands on (as we’re starved for similar quality whiskies here in Canada), but I like to take my time with these bottles. That’s a lie I have too much to write, I am […]

Ardbeg – Better as an OB or IB?

I’ve been lucky enough to try Ardbeg from the 60s to recently. And yes, that’s a brag. Brag, brag, brag. I’m awesome and I’m sure you imagine my genitalia as massive and tight and amazing. Wow, way to alienate new people. Let’s start over. Ardbeg has changed over the years. What was, at one point, […]

A bunch of reasons I like Laphroaig

No funny start. No explanation, nothing. I’m here and you’re here for the exact same reason. Laphroaig. Are you a peat head? You like Laphroaig, probably. And you haven’t been as wallet sodomized (with your consent) by Laphroaig, unless it’s got an age statement typically reserved for that point where life starts making a bit […]

A bunch of Bunnahabhain

I like Bunnahabhain. But I don’t think I love Bunnahabhain. There’s a debate that comes up each time we have Bunna at a tasting: It’s good, but is it ever great? And there’re some of us who believe maybe, some who fall into never, and myself, a person in between. Of course, I’m a reviewer […]
