Strathmill 35 A.D. Rattray

Thanks to /u/cake_my_day for this sample Strathmill. Don’t hear about it often, eh? It’s used in blends by Diageo like J&B. It was setup during the whisky boom of the 90s. The 1890s, that is. Used to be a mill. So there’s a few reasons why we don’t hear about them, right? However if you have that […]

Bruichladdich 19 1989 – Black Art

Thanks to /u/Whiskyjig for the sample. Originally my plan for my 750th whisky, and the end of my plan for celebrating hitting that milestone. Hey, ever hear of this small company, Bruichladdich? They’ve brought out a couple whiskes over the years. A few of them pop up every so often. They have some winners. I see them […]

However during these reviews he noted that […]

What I mean is after experiencing a few different levels of Irish whiskey, […]

Glenfiddich 12 Caoran Reserve

It’s my wife’s birthday. Thus we went to a place that had food she liked. Somehow she’s only brought to places with great whisky selections. Thus we ended up at Via Allegro. Which has a massive amount of whisky. And by that I mean they’ve won the award for best whisky list by multiple places. […]

BenRiach 16 Sauternes

Thanks to /u/throzen for the sample. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: My bias should be known by everyone who reads my reviews. And if you know nothing more from this review, you should know two of my current biases: 1) I feel Sauternes casks should only be used for long periods of time […]
