Ardmore 10 2008 Carn Mor Rare Drams

Thanks to /u/Throzen for pouring me a dram. Finishing up an impromptu tasting at Devoz’s place with Unclimbability, xile_, Throzen, distillasian, and smoked_herring, there was a lot of choices. It takes a certain amount of being an adult to not overdrink, not take everything put down in front of you, and also know your limit as well […]

Penderyn Rich Oak

Thanks to /u/unclimability for this sample. So this is how far behind me reviews are: I went to take a class about 8 weeks ago. Right before the first workshop, Unclimability showed up for an impromptu tasting, and we met in person. He left with both kidneys still on him. Since then said class kicked my ass […]

Colonel E.H. Taylor 4 Grain

Thanks to /u/devoz for this sample Elephants. They linger around the room. And the annoying thing is, as with elephants in small rooms, they come up. Someone mentions it. There’s a trunk that slaps you because it’s in musth. What am I blathering on about? A certain Bible that’s for whisky. Written by a cat eyed person […]

BenRiach 10 2009 Peated (Cask 584)

Thanks to /u/devoz for pouring me a dram. By some fluke I ended up with another peated, younger BenRiach. It’s almost like I know what I like when I ask for samples from other adults who pour me things that I take home. Where was I? Oh, yes. BenRiach 10 2009 Peated, an ex-bourbon barrel single cask BenRiach […]

Bruichladdich Port Charlotte MRC:01

Thanks to /u/distillasian[+14] for pouring me this sample. So picture this: You’re sitting at your desk, getting work done. You enjoy your job enough and making good time. My phone goes off, and there’s a ton of pictures. A friend of mine, let’s call him distillasian, is on Islay. And while I’m having a coffee with work, […]

Heaven Hill 9 North Star

Every so often, I’m reminded of my most popular review on /r/bourbon. Wait… no, it wasn’t. Looking back it mostly just the one that, 2 year ago, did alright and had people talking. What am I blathering on about, you may ask? A Heaven Hill that was in Scotland released from Cadenheads. I declared it my […]

Woodford Reserve Malt

Thanks to /u/devoz for this sample Woodford Reserve Malt is the fourth addition to the Woodford Reserve lineup. The idea? A malt whiskey, because that’s something some US distillers are doing. And while Woodford is part of Brown-Foreman, and while they are a large company, I do find they are left to be kinda nerdy with their releases. […]
