Alberta Premium Cask Strength

Thanks to /u/devoz for sharing this dram with me. Alberta is currently a hot topic in Canada. There’s some history there which I won’t be getting into. I won’t be opening that particular can of worms here. That said, it is the origin and part of the name of the whisky I’ll be reviewing today, Alberta Premium Cask […]

Shelter Point Single Malt Kensington Wine Market Pick / Shelter Point Single Cask Rye

I’m always looking for a “next distillery”. Something that makes a whisky that I’ll enjoy. And while I typically enjoy Scotch, I do want other countries to make cool stuff too.

The idea behind it? Back in […]

Thomas H. Handy Sazerac Rye 2016

Thanks to /u/devoz for pouring me a sample. I usually feel a bit sheepish about some of my reviews. They’re behind the times, to be honest. However when it comes to the rarer, harder to find stuff, I’m going to review them when I get the chance. Period. Take, for instance, Thomas H. Handy Sazerac Rye from 2016. Yes, […]
