3 Ardmore Reviews

My proclivities to specific distilleries are at odds with one of my whisky reviewing morals. There’s never going to be a distillery that I’ll turn down reviewing because there’s always going to be at least one whisky from them I’ll like. That said, I do get into times when I want a specific whisky. And […]

Westland Peat Week 2016 [Mystery]

Thanks to /u/smoked_herring for this mystery dram. Peat. Does it go with everything? Is it like honey, that seemingly pairs well in all cases, from toast to sexy times to washing your hair? Or is it like peanut butter, which works for some of those things, and makes bears attack you in the other two cases? Westland […]

Glenfiddich Snow Phoenix [MYSTERY]

Thanks to /u/xile_ for pouring this for me. I’m not the biggest Glenfiddich fan boy. Yes, the 18 has a special place in my heart, however I’m not constantly hunting down Glenfiddich to try. That said I have been hunting down Glenfiddich Snow Phoenix. I had a chance to have a pour, however not being the biggest Glenfiddich […]

Lagavulin – Lg8 – Elements of Islay [Mystery Review]

Thanks to /u/Throzen for sharing this dram. Mystery sample time! It’s always fun to have a new whisky, and one blind is pretty cool. Also single casks can really, really vary one each.

Kirkland Signature Speyside 18

Thanks to /u/DistillAsian for this one! Kirkland Signature. We all know it. Sorry, those of us who need the deals at Costco just to get by in this boring dystopia that is Capitalistic North America know of it. Canadians and Americans have different ways of reacting to store brands. In Canada, we grew up with them, and […]

Aultmore 35 1982 Adelphi

Thanks to /u/xile_[ for pouring me this dram. It’s the end of the year. We’re having whiskies of which we saved onto to eventually have. It’s all a great time. So we’re doing the next one blind. Which, of course, means I didn’t guess it correctly. Aultmore 35 1982 Adelphi is what it eventually was revealed to be. So […]

Amrut Portonova [Re-Review]

And this is the end of my Mystery Advent Calendar. It ends with a bit of a hiccup. Day #24 is a re-review. My wife picked from a section of whiskies that were made up of ones I’ve already had, and were the last drops. So I ended up finishing with Amrut Portonova. I’m happy to […]
