Tobermory 17 Dun Bheagan

Thanks to /u/ScotchGuy_To for sharing this dram Tobermory. I’ve had ones I like. I’ve had ones I less like. Some might even say I’m not a fan of Tobermory, but a big fan of Ledaig, because I’m a peaty-peathead with my love of peat and all that. But we’re not talking about peat today, so most of […]

Edradour 3 Ways

So Edradour. Small distillery, releases whisky that’s typically on the younger side, but also cask strength and uses some interesting casks outside of just bourbon or wine. If you can’t tell from that over-the-top delivery, I’m middle-of-the-road on Edradour. You won’t’ see me turning my nose up at them, but you also won’t find me […]

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”. Somehow the song Oh Yeah by Yello (Google that) starts playing out of nowhere. What am I offered? Why a […]

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 […]
