Ardmore SMWS 66.73 “Midnight feast at the pony club camp”

Thanks to /u/Catharticintent and /u/xile_ for samples of this dram. Yup, traded for it twice. I’m smart with a capital D. This is a continuation of my ongoing series that I’m calling “Scotch Malts, Wife’s Selection”, in which my wife goes through my backlog of SMWS (Scotch Malt Whisky Society) samples that I haven’t reviewed yet, pours them blind, and […]

So Cadenheads sells to everyone and […]

Glenlivet 21 Archive

Thanks to /u/devoz for the sample. At my wedding, we made sure there was an open bar, plenty to drink, and a nice selection of different beers, wines, and alcohol. That didn’t stop our MC from bringing his plus 1. Which would normally have nothing to do with the alcohol unless she was a drunk. No, you […]
