J.P. Wiser's NHL Alumni Whisky Series

I was able to try each of these through the Toronto Whisky Society, which was given the chance to try them by Wiser’s themselves. Special commemorative editions of things, especially mashups of two different fandoms, are always something to question before buying: Why are you buying it? For the Wiser’s Alumni Whisky Series, you could tell […]

Teeling 12 Collinstown Collection

Let’s be honest: When someone talks about Irish whiskey, they typically speak of a lower end, everyday drink that is smooth though typically doesn’t break the mould. That’s mostly because the industry has taken a hit over the last century. English trade embargos, the Coffey still, American prohibition, and even Canadian’s calling uncut, poisonous whisky […]

And during this Japanese whisky boom, where everyone and their mother will tell you […]

Islay Mist 17

Thanks to @scotchguy.to for sharing a dram of this with me. There’s always a question of what to drink on a regular basis. Now I’m not saying drink excessively. If you need a whisky reviewer to tell you that, then… holy damn, get some help. Call someone you love. Even if you think they won’t answer. But […]
