Teeling 10 2008 Single Cask

Thanks to /u/smoked_herring[+2] for this sample. As Teeling continues to grow and age it’s own whiskey, we’re going to see more of their whiskey in the mix and less of what they’ve sourced (which they haven’t officially disclosed, and I’m not going to mention since it always turns into a debate when I do).

Nikka Black Clear

Thanks to /u/ScotchGuyTO for this dram. A quick recap on my cantankerous position on Japanese whisky: It can be great, it’s so popular that the stuff you can get ahold of without selling a small family sedan typically isn’t. Typically. Enter Nikka Black Clear, 7-Eleven’s own brand of Japanese whisky, available for less than a 10-spot, and available at each corner in […]
