A Set of Compass Box Reviews

So when you get into whisky there’s a lot of people who’ll immediately jump onto some sacred cow beliefs that are prevalent. Things like “never ever add anything to your whisky” which is dumb, because it’s your whisky. I may not like it with an ice cube or felched out of your partner’s nether region […]

A bunch of Bunnahabhain

I like Bunnahabhain. But I don’t think I love Bunnahabhain. There’s a debate that comes up each time we have Bunna at a tasting: It’s good, but is it ever great? And there’re some of us who believe maybe, some who fall into never, and myself, a person in between. Of course, I’m a reviewer […]

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? […]

Multiple Campbeltown Whiskies

I was interested in Scotch when I first went to Scotland. And kudos to the Scotch Whisky Experience. I went through it, they gave me the basics as a base for me to get wrong and be corrected and grow. For instance, they poured one from almost every Scotch region. Yes, almost. They talked about […]

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 […]
