Glenfiddich Snow Phoenix [MYSTERY]

Thanks to /u/xile_ for pouring this for me. I’m not the biggest Glenfiddich fan boy. Yes, the 18 has a special place in my heart, however I’m not constantly hunting down Glenfiddich to try. That said I have been hunting down Glenfiddich Snow Phoenix. I had a chance to have a pour, however not being the biggest Glenfiddich […]

Four Roses 2013 Limited Edition – Small Batch 125 Anniversary Edition [Re-Review]

Thanks to /u/devoz for pouring a sample for me. A few years ago one of those “odd” moments happened with Bourbon. Four Roses 2013 Limited Edition – Small Batch 125 Anniversary Edition, a special edition from a large company, was released in large enough quantities that most could have it. It wasn’t NAS, it wasn’t watered down, […]

Bunnahabhain Stiùireadair

Bunnahabhain Stiùireadair is a new NAS release from Bunnahabhain. It’s sherried, using both first fill and second fill sherry casks. I obtained this sample from the brand ambassador who recently ran a tasting for the Toronto Whisky Society. Why this? According to some press, it’s a partial replacement for the 12 year. Guess they’re having sourcing […]

GlenDronach 8 – The Hielen

Simple whisky this time. I was at a bar, well known for a good selection of whiskies, however I had blown my whisky budget and didn’t have much time before my plans started. GlenDronach 8 – The Hielen was my pick. It’s about time, really. I had forgotten some of the younger malts and should catch […]

Ardbeg – Ar10 – Elements of Islay

Thanks to both /u/devoz and /u/distillation for this sample. So we just finished a Lagavulin independent bottled double cask. What can beat that? I am a Lagavulin fanboy, after all. Oh, yeah, I’m also an Ardbeg fanboy. And a huge obvious stereotype whisky drinker. Thus we have Ardbeg – Ar10 – Elements of Islay up next, yet another of the chemistry […]

Lagavulin – Lg8 – Elements of Islay [Mystery Review]

Thanks to /u/Throzen for sharing this dram. Mystery sample time! It’s always fun to have a new whisky, and one blind is pretty cool. Also single casks can really, really vary one each. Thus I went in completely blind. Let’s see how it tasted, shall we? Price: N/A at the LCBO Region: Islay Vintage: 2006 Bottled: 2018 Age: 12-years-old Cask Type: 2 Bourbon […]

Toki Suntory Whisky

Thank you to /u/distillasian for pouring me this sample. So one day I started ranting to my whisky friends about Toki Suntory Whisky. Why? Because we’re a bunch of snobs who have had cask strength, age stated, now long gone/way too expensive Japanese whisky. And during this Japanese whisky boom, where everyone and their mother will tell you […]

6 Ledaig Reviews

Ledaig. On Reddit, that place where bad and good things happen, I’m the third most prolific reviewer of Ledaig. Last I checked. Let’s do that now, before I screw up and put my foot in my mouth, again. Alright, it basically backs me up. I think. Who knows if people have been archiving? Whatever. When […]
