Barterhouse 20 Orphan Barrel

A while ago I was in our local province run government monopoly and while their undertrained workers were working around me and the management were watching me like a hawk because they think I’m an alcoholic master thief, I happened upon Barterhouse 20 Orphan Barrel. Given my provinces founding by groups of Scotsman who feel that […]

J.P. Wiser’s 35 (2018)

Thanks to Wiser’s for pouring a few samples of this as we toasted Detroit and Windsor. For those of you not in the know, last year was the first year for the Northern Border Collection. Given my countries excellence in winter clothing, I wouldn’t be surprised if most people assumed it was a clothing line. […]

Thomas H. Handy Sazerac Rye 2009

Thanks to /u/Orehnmadgib for pouring me a sample of this dram. It’s odd having a drinking buddy like /u/devoz. He’s going to joke around and be cool, and then you find out he’s the number one reviewer of BTAC on Reddit, even though he doesn’t live in Kentucky and totally doesn’t have the last name “Handy” or “Lee” […]

Mellow Corn

Thanks to /u/Scotchchick for pouring a sample for me. There’s a whiskey. Some would say ubiquitous. Still, others would say it’s legendary. Its golden hue is known by geeks and non-geeks alike, which based on how I did on Venn diagrams, includes everyone in the world (Editor’s note: That’s not how that works at all). Of course, […]

Redbreast Lustau Edition

Among my whisky geek friends, I am known as the one who’s typically wrong. This isn’t 100% because I say wrong things all the time. It’s also because, in my past, I worked in marketing, and in marketing, if you don’t say something with total confidence then you aren’t believed. If you wait to look […]

Glenrothes Alba Reserve

Thanks to /u/ScotchChick for pouring me a sample. As I slowly catch up on Glenrothes, I notice that I typically stick to independently bottled varieties. And there are some from Glenrothes who may point this out, and say I should give more of their OBs a chance. Not that I’ve ignored them. The 1995 and Select Reserve […]

Glenmorangie Bacalta

Thanks to /u/ScotchChick for pouring me a sample of this dram. I’ll be honest, as I typically am: For a few years, I skipped over the Glenmorangie special releases. Yes, I’ve reviewed a few of them. Like today’s, Glenmorangie Bacalta, not around the time they came out. Why? Well, there’re a few reasons. The first is the easiest: […]
