A bunch of reasons I like Laphroaig

No funny start. No explanation, nothing. I’m here and you’re here for the exact same reason. Laphroaig. Are you a peat head? You like Laphroaig, probably. And you haven’t been as wallet sodomized (with your consent) by Laphroaig, unless it’s got an age statement typically reserved for that point where life starts making a bit […]

Lochside 47 1965 Adelphi

Thanks to /u/ScotchGuyTO for sharing this dram “Hey, I got something you should try” When someone with more whisky under his/her built says this to you, you feign respect but secretly get excited and say “oh yes”.

A bunch of Bunnahabhain

That said, I do get into times when I want a specific whisky. And […]

A bevy of Springbank Reviews

Springbank. The name conjures up quality, because they haven’t skimped on their processes, and high prices, because we all know the whisky is good, and therefore buy it. I have a hard time speaking about Springbank for this reason. I love Springbank. My first review was the standard 10, and while I feel I was […]
