Smokehead Sherry Bomb

It’s been awhile since I’ve been able to take a vacation. I won’t go into detail, but let’s just say I was a department of one for awhile while going to school at the same time. It was… the reason I posted less for a while in 2020 and 2021. So we got dressed up in our […]

Caol Ila 8 2006 Alexander Murray

Thanks to /u/ScotchGuy_TO  for pouring me this dram. So we’re at part 2 of the continuation of the “end of year” tasting I had. These are the drams that I was worn out to review. Caol Ila 8 2006 Alexander Murray is a simple idea: Independent bottling of a vatted, ex-bourbon cask Caol Ila. We have an age, […]

Peat’s Beast 27

Thanks to /u/xile_  for sharing a bottle of this with me (not in one sitting, just in purchase). This was supposed to be the last of a very big year-end tasting, and when I attempted to review a dram, I realized quickly I wasn’t doing it justice, and needed to revisit it. Which is for the best, […]

Laphroaig 25 2015

Thanks to /u/Throzen  for the sample, poured as part of our year end tasting. We’re nearing the end of the tasting. For myself, at least. I’m pushing my ability to review at this point, have drunk enough water to clear out my system three times over, thought of baseball and spiders, and decided this is the last […]

Caol Ila 22 1990 Dun Bheagan

So we’re still at Via Allegro, the restaurant that purports to have many whiskies and never can serve them when I order them, thus it’s also the last time I’m showing up to spend copious amounts of money on whisky there, and recommend you go anywhere else if you’d like a selection of whisky (the […]

Why is Bowmores?

I can’t really think of a distillery I’m more polarized on than Bowmore. A long time back, a time when I was bushy eyed and peppy, I tried the standard OB (original bottling) offerings from Bowmore. I was underwhelmed. After that I was one of the few lucky new whisky drinkers to try some of […]

Ardbeg 5 Wee Beastie

Why did I buy this again? Sure, I’m a fan of Ardbeg, but I’m also not made of money. Granted purchasing Ardbeg 5 Wee Beastie is the easiest way to purchase Ardbeg, what with being 5 years old. So it’s not the money. Not to mention I split a bottle 5 ways. Also it’s aged in a […]
