Glengoyne 18

Thanks to /u/Davyj0ne5  for this dram. I recently figured out I had a couple Glengoyne samples around. So I finally got around to trying Glengoyne 12 for the last review. Skipping over the other middle child at fifteen years, we have Glengoyne 18. How has it changed, save for six more years? Well, I’m glad I asked myself […]

Glengoyne 12

Thanks to /u/Davyj0ne5  for this dram So here’s an issue. Each year, there are standard whiskies that come out. And the same ones come out time and time, which makes sense. And then independent releases changeup. So as a whisky reviewer you end up starting with the standard, OB releases. Which is fine. It’s a good place […]

Bruichladdich Octomore 08.2

Thanks to /u/throzen for pouring a sample of this for me. A long time ago (by whisky standards, not by, you know, adult standards), the Island known as Islay (which means Island in Gaelic, thus being redundant) decided they needed to know who was the peatiest whisky. Some of the distilleries ignored this call to […]

Highland Park 21 1979 Adelphi

Thanks to /u/devoz for sharing a dram of this. So you’re having a whisky tasting. One of those times where you focus on your hobby and forget the horrible world outside that’s slowly burning down to the ground. First, you had a light world whisky, then you had an interesting American whiskey, and thus we can start […]

High West Yippee Ki-Yay

Had a tasting. Didn’t have a set idea. Just brought out whiskies we wanted to drink. Like we should. I decided upon High West Yippee Ki-Yay. Why? Because something this odd needs to be savoured. But what is High West Yippee Ki-Yay? The name would denote using ex-bean casks and potentially quoting Blazing Saddles while it ages. […]

J.P. Wiser’s 19 Seasoned Oak

Thanks to Corby for supplying a sample to me for this review. Recently there’s been some nice Canadian whiskies coming out, which as a Canadian whisky fan I’m particularly proud of, as I was born here and therefore due to the transitive property, I’m great too. Joking aside, I am happy for the idea of […]

Kilchoman 100% Islay – 5th Edition

The day started with one of Islay’s established distilleries that started in 1815. So a bookend to it would be ending with one of Islay’s newest distilleries, Kilchoman. So I’ve never had Kilchoman 100% Islay – 5th Edition and was interested in it. I hadn’t had many of them, only having reviewed the third edition. And not […]
