Thomas H. Handy Sazerac Rye 2009

Thanks to /u/Orehnmadgib for pouring me a sample of this dram. It’s odd having a drinking buddy like /u/devoz. He’s going to joke around and be cool, and then you find out he’s the number one reviewer of BTAC on Reddit, even though he doesn’t live in Kentucky and totally doesn’t have the last name “Handy” or “Lee” that you’d expect. Not that bourbon requires you to be… Continue reading Thomas H. Handy Sazerac Rye 2009

Willett 22 2015 Family Estate Bottled Single Barrel Bourbon

Of course, I’m speaking about Mellow Corn. Not to get corny, but I’ve… Continue reading Mellow Corn

Glenrothes SMWS 30.100 “An abundance of fruit cake”

Perhaps you’re not even someone who celebrates Xmas. Maybe you’ve not gained the requisite 10 kg of weight needed for the rough winters ahead in this new world. So you’re all set, and then a package arrives. You see it’s… Continue reading Glenrothes SMWS 30.100 “An abundance of fruit cake”
