The Speyside 18 1998 Fountana

Thanks to ScotchGuyTO for sharing this dram The Speyside isn’t really a distillery you hear much about. I’ve written before this is 100% due to the confusion inherent in the name. They make a single malt called THE SPEY all in caps like your uncle sharing a recent “totally true” and probably horrible fact on Facebook that […]

Monumental 30 Alexander Murray & Co

Thanks to /u/ScotchGuyTo for sharing this dram There’s always a question that people have: Why are you in my house? Where’s my family? Why are you doing this? Why are you a doll? Wait, it was the guy lying dead in the chamber the whole time? That’s not a twist, that’s bullshit… Fuck, there’s 9 of these? […]

Johnnie Walker Red (1970s)

Thanks to /u/ScotchGuyTo for sharing this dram. Whisky pops up in history here and there. Let me be clear: History is filled with more important things than distilled beer that ensures we get giggly while tasting different interesting flavours. However, what is interesting, when looking at important figures who had major impacts, they drank heavily. It’s no […]

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 […]
