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 […]

Langatun Avo Jazz Session 1st Ed.

Thanks to /u/Throzen for pouring me the sample What goes after you had a mystery dram and finally got around to trying your second ever Langatun? Why mispronouncing another Langatun, of course! I keep adding an extra N. That’s not even a joke, I’m just bad at it. Langatun Avo Jazz Session 1st Ed. is meant to evoke […]

Langatun Jacob’s Dram

Thanks to /u/Throzen for pouring me this dram. What is Langatun Jacob’s Dram? This is the question I had when my buddy pulled it out at a tasting. Langatun is a distillery with roots in brewing. Each year that pulls out a distilled spirit and has some fun. Granted in Switzerland, before 2007, that couldn’t include distilling barley, […]

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 […]

Glen Keith 21 1992 Archives

Thanks to /u/Saba007[ for pouring me this dram. Glen Keith isn’t exactly at the top of most peoples “saw it at a bar” lists. It’s the first Speyside to be built since the whisky crash of 1898. No, you aren’t dyslexic, that’s the 19th century. And it was mothballed in 1999, left to eventually reopen in 2013. […]

The Irishman Single Malt

So I thought I hadn’t reviewed The Irishman Single Malt before, thus when fellow TWS members were handed samples by a company representing them, I said sure. Then I reviewed it, and re-read my old review. Oops. Not really. You see, these are made in small batches. Something like 1,000 bottles in total. So some variation is […]

Glenrothes 2003 Single Cask

Thanks to /u/Saba007 for this one Glenrothes. I enjoy them. Quite a bit. As long as they are a) independently bottled and b) cask strength. Oh, and c) ex-Bourbon casks. I’m a sucker for them. Enter Saba007. He likes Glenrothes as well. But he likes Sherry casks. So he goes out and gets an OB, single cask, […]
