Rosebank 21 1990

Thanks to /u/Saba007 for pouring me this dram. So I’ve been sick, and that’s sucked. Really sick. Haven’t had the energy to have many drams, save for special occasions, and haven’t had the energy to do much more than work/school. But you’re not here for that. You’re here because I’m well again and writing again. So let’s […]

Bushmills 16 Three Wood

Thanks to /u/boyd86 for the sample. This past year (2018) I had lots and lots of plans. Finish my accounting schooling, find a new job in a new career space, INSERT SOMETHING FUNNY HERE THAT IS OBVIOUS I DIDN’T DO FOR COMEDIC EFFECT, and review enough Irish Whiskey to finally hit 100 total reviews. I’m happy to […]

Laphroaig 18 [Re-Review]

Thanks to /u/Throzen for sharing a dram of this one. Nostalgia is a set of rose coloured glasses that will forever poison the past with sugar. It makes us second guess if things were really better, or perhaps not. So when people discuss, with sadness, the discontinued Laphroaig 18 versus the Laphroaig 15 which replaced it. However I […]

Hellyers Road Original

So I’m at a tasting. And I showed up with a whisky to lower everyone’s overall scores. This was requested. I bought my bottle of Hellyers Road Original on a whim. I hadn’t had an Aussie whisky ever. Wait, is that English? Let’s try this again. Me not have Australian whisky yet. Then I forgot about it. […]
