Jim Beam Legent

Thanks to my buddy for pouring me a dram of his bottle. So awhile ago I was out in Alberta. Just hanging out, visiting friends, enjoying rural Canada in all it’s beautiful glory. One thing that popped up while in Calgary (not rural Canada, had to come in from the massive farms and beautiful landscapes […]

Caol Ila 12 2006 North Star

Everything about Caol Ila, on paper, without trying their whisky spells disaster. It’s massive amounts of whisky pumped out industrially owned by a large company. And yet… dammit if I don’t really enjoy their whisky. So I guess I gotta stop judging books by covers and all that. Oh, how my life would be different. […]

Laphroaig 20 1996 Adelphi

Thanks to /u/xile_ for pouring me this dram. How do you end an epic tasting that includes good steak, beef bacon, sausages, and staring into the abyss? Why with a Laphroaig of course! Laphroaig 20 1996 Adelphi is to round out the tasting. And since it’s from Adelphi, I’m lucky that they listed the alcohol the information is […]

Paul John 6 Cadenhead Small Batch

Thanks to /u/xile_ for pouring me a sample of this one. Hey, it’s time to review an Indian whisky. Which since I’m drinking it and reviewing it, which means it’s from… Paul John?

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 […]
