Springbank 11 Local Barley

Thanks to /u/devoz for sharing a sample of this one! Terroir is a joke told by a silly man. We know many distilleries that use the same river, and they didn’t taste the exact same. The reason, is of course, they use different barrels, different methods, different mashbills, and finally, different barley. However, what if someone […]

Aultmore 12

Thanks to /u/throzen for sharing a dram of this one! It’s hard to find an alternative to Aultmore. Wait, is this what we’re doing now? Puns? That didn’t even work. Let’s start differently. Aultmore distillery is distilled in Keith, Banffshire. The name is derived for the Gaelic, which I don’t have to type out because it’s […]

Bowmore Dawn & Bowmore Dusk

Ichiro’s Malt Triple Review (Malt & Grain, MWR – Mizunara Wood Reserve, Double Distilleries)

However unless you’re one of the lucky people out there who understand how Kilchoman does that crazy thing they […]

Wiser’s 18 Cask Strength

Thanks to /u/devoz for this sample. I have a little bit of a confession, as a Canadian whisky drinker. I prefer Wiser’s 18 over Wiser’s Legacy in blind taste tests. I’m a bad person. I’m an okay otter. So when members of the TWS recently visited Wiser’s for a very special tour. Wiser’s were nice enough […]

Flóki Young Malt Spirit

Thanks to /u/distillasian for this sample. Iceland is a mythical place in a real world. We’re fed pictures of a volcanic land that is owned by beautiful people with amazing facial hair and Nordic features. We hear stories of them fighting corruption, living off the land, and being the heirs to Vikings. I spent 17 hours […]
