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 […]

Glenmorangie Bacalta

Thanks to /u/ScotchChick for pouring me a sample of this dram. I’ll be honest, as I typically am: For a few years, I skipped over the Glenmorangie special releases. Yes, I’ve reviewed a few of them. Like today’s, Glenmorangie Bacalta, not around the time they came out. Why? Well, there’re a few reasons. The first is the easiest: […]

Arranpolcalypse (Part 1)

Funny story. Wait, not really. Funny. Maybe sad. I’m fascinated by different casks. I’m intrigued by anyone who is trying new and different things in life. Why?

Bushmills 21

So I’m back, on a different day, at a different place. I may or may not have been bouncing around Dublin and we may be hungry and my wife may be hitting “needs a gin and tonic” o’clock. It was time to try a different whiskey bar. One that had food this time. And according […]
