Tobermory 8 2008 Archives

Thanks to @scotchguy.to for sharing a dram of this with me. Something I’m always looking for is a brash, young, interesting whisky. Usually, that means a full maturation. Usually means something beyond an ex-bourbon cask, something peated, something with an odd mashbill. It doesn’t always mean it will work. And sometimes something else works. So a friend […]

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 […]

Enter Saba007. He likes Glenrothes as well. But he likes Sherry casks. So he goes out and gets an OB, single cask, […]

Convalmore 23 1976 Silent Stills

I’ve never had a Convalmore. That’s actually what brought me to Allen’s, a gastropub in Toronto, for my much belated birthday. Belated birthdays are what we do in my family. I saw a review by /u/smokedherring, and I was interested in this. I wondered to myself if I enjoyed Convalmore. And I drew a blank. That’s fine, […]
