North Star Millennial Range

So you are an independent bottler. No, not because I said so, I don’t have that power. My superpower is leaving a film on glass, and someday the X-men will call because they are fighting the Sparkler. Marvel, call me for phase 5, I’m awesome. Back to my original point: You’re working as an independent […]

6 Ben Nevis Reviews

So for awhile now I have been on and off with Ben Nevis. I hard heard of variation in what you got, that it was big in Japan (so you were competing with richer, more experienced whisky nerds), and that sometimes, just sometimes, it didn’t really work. So when I was told that we could […]

GlenAllachie 25 First Editions / GlenAllachie 21 1996 Signatory Cask Strength

Thanks to /u/xile_ for the sample. GlenAllachie. I’ve not reviewed one before. This is my first time. Hopefully I’m gentle with myself. Let’s be honest, I won’t be. GlenAllachie was founded in 1967, making it quite young. Also impressive that such a young whisky distillery survived the 80s. Heck I’m surprised most people surprised the 80s, what […]

Four Balvenie of Interest

I meant to post this quite a while ago, however, I’ve been as sick as a dog, tired, honestly mentally and soul exhausted at being on the internet after the last couple weeks, oh and currently working on reviewing a 400-page book. Not to mention life being life, as usual. Alright, let’s get my bias […]

Irish Single Malt 13 No.1 Batch 2 That Boutique-y Whisky Company / Irish Single Malt 14 No.2 Batch 1 That Boutique-y Whisky Company

This past year (2018) I had lots and lots of plans. Finish my accounting schooling, find a new job in a new career space, revive Michael Jackson’s corpse into a bard-lich, and review enough Irish Whiskey to finally hit 100 total reviews. I’m happy to say I got most of that done, and Winter is […]

Lagavulin Single Cask Extravaganza

Thanks to /u/distillasian for sharing all of these with me. So we’re having an amazing night. Drinking samples that were brought back from Islay, and reminding ourselves to make distillasian’s wife many cakes. Or BBQ meat. Or cakes with BBQ meat in them. I’m not going to judge. For a few of the samples (save the two […]
