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, […]

Thomas H. Handy Sazerac Rye 2009

Thanks to /u/Orehnmadgib for pouring me a sample of this dram. It’s odd having a drinking buddy like /u/devoz. He’s going to joke around and be cool, and then you find out he’s the number one reviewer of BTAC on Reddit, even though he doesn’t live in Kentucky and totally doesn’t have the last name “Handy” or “Lee” […]

High West Yippee Ki-Yay

Had a tasting. Didn’t have a set idea. Just brought out whiskies we wanted to drink. Like we should. I decided upon High West Yippee Ki-Yay. Why? Because something this odd needs to be savoured. But what is High West Yippee Ki-Yay? The name would denote using ex-bean casks and potentially quoting Blazing Saddles while it ages. […]

Millstone 100% Rye Single Cask 1577

Thanks to /u/devoz for sharing a sample of this whisky. The Netherlands. Not so much a place people think of when one says “Whisky Maker”. Usually a place one thinks of if I mentioned, for instance, social tolerance or perhaps tulip crash or even “Holland”, if you’re nasty. However those people aren’t including Zuidam Distillers. Originally started […]

Kentucky Owl Rye Batch #1

Thanks to /u/Saba007 for sharing this one with us. There seems to be quite a bit of hullabaloo about Kentucky Owl. It never really hit us here in Ontario, as the LCBO’s tendency to pile red tape on being able to sell things sometimes means that they don’t hit the largest alcohol seller in North America. So […]

Whistlepig 12 Old World

Thanks to Mark Bylok from the Whisky Topic for this sample. No pressure, however they have a pretty cool podcast, so I recommend checking it out. Whistlepig is an interesting whiskey. They source from different places. In the case of Whistlepig 12 Old World, the original 12 year old 95% rye was distilled by MGP in Indiana. However […]

Northern Border Collection 2017

Thanks to Wiser’s for inviting myself and /u/muaddib99 as part of the Toronto Whisky Society. Please note that while we appreciate being invited, our reviews are our own and Wiser’s has not edited these at all. Sharp pointy sticks to all our crouches. There, they wouldn’t allow that, no one likes that and whisky. Well, very few people […]
