Proper No. Twelve

Thanks to whomever found devoz  and handed him a sample of this for me… I think? I know next to little about the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) or MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) in general, nor will I pretend to understand it. I can’t watch people do sports because I’d rather take part in a sport, even if […]

Starward Malt Whisky

Thanks to /u/georgejessel  for sharing this dram with me. Australia. A land that evokes rugged territory, vast impacts of conservative pants-on-head policies, rampant colonialism, and a smattering of animals that would kill you quickly. It also evokes a rough group of people who seem like they’d be buds with you, assuming you’re white. So not too different […]

An Ample Amount of Amruts

I’ve been writing a bit lately about moving on from old distilleries. Which is tough. No one wants to stop buying a specific distillery’s offerings due to price increases, changes in how it’s being made, or even situations where it becomes so popular that you have to camp out to purchase it. Which usually means […]

Hven Seven Stars No. 2 Merak

Thanks to /u/Strasse  for this dram. If you find yourself between Denmark and Sweden, specifically in the strait of Öresund, you may be drowning in a cold area and should reach land and warmth immediately. If you’re lucky enough to be there and be on the island of Hven, congrats on staying alive! To celebrate you could […]

You gotta try new things. Again, yes, I’m your mother now. See previous reviews to find out why. Some of them will surprise you, or whatever I’m supposed to say to get people to read as otherwise I’m just screaming into the void. Where was I? Oh yes, Mackmyra, a Swedish whisky distillery. When you […]

Millstone 20 1996 Virgin Oak

Thanks to /u/devoz  for the sample. Virgin oak whiskies and I aren’t on each other’s Xmas card list. Don’t get me wrong: I’m not saying I don’t fuck with them, but I don’t go out of my way to fuck with them. First off if you think slivers in your hand are painful… oh, we’re not going […]

Tipperary 17 2002 Rum Cask

It’s tough when you’re starting a distillery. There’s a very, very high barrier to entry. We live in a time when the richest among us demand higher returns on investment, meaning if you have an idea and no money then you may as well not have an idea at all. Or you can keep that […]
