Ledaig 18 1994 Gordon & MacPhail Exclusive for Co-op Wines & Spirits

Thanks to /u/devoz for this sample. Yadda yadda yadda Toronto Whisky Society meeting blah blah blah Ledaig etcetera etcetera etcetera someone lost an eye. It’s pronounced Le-Check. Ledaig 18 1994 Gordon & MacPhail Exclusive for Co-op Wines & Spirits is, for lack of a better term, a lost gem that makes me want to move out West. You see, Co-op Wines & Spirits had this bottling made a… Continue reading Ledaig 18 1994 Gordon & MacPhail Exclusive for Co-op Wines & Spirits

Ledaig 16 Old Particular Douglas Laing

Thanks to /u/muaddib99 for sharing this sample. We had a meeting. One of us hadn’t had Ledaig before. Once done all the important parts of the meeting, two people at the meeting broke out the whiskies. We reminded each other it’s pronounced Le-Check over and over as we drank more cask strength (and some not cask strength) whisky. There may have been giggling. So we know about… Continue reading Ledaig 16 Old Particular Douglas Laing

Ledaig SMWS 42.27 “Smoked, aged Riesling”

Thanks to /u/devoz for this sample Incase you missed my last post, recently I was at a meeting to discuss a whisky tasting event and ended up needing to try some Ledaig, which is pronounced Le-Check, because Gaelic, that’s why. So last time we had a nine year old Ledaig that was distilled in October 2006. This time we have… a nine year old Ledaig that was… Continue reading Ledaig SMWS 42.27 “Smoked, aged Riesling”

Ledaig SMWS 42.22 “Brave the elements”

Thanks to /u/devoz for this sample As part of an important meeting to discuss an upcoming whisky tasting event (super important) it came up that one of us had not reviewed many Ledaig offerings. By the way, that’s pronounced “Le-check”, because Gaelic doesn’t give a fuck. As such, we ‘had’ to go about the very important detail of reviewing some single cask offerings from Ledaig, starting with Ledaig… Continue reading Ledaig SMWS 42.22 “Brave the elements”

Wayne Gretzky Distillery (& Winery, if you’re naughty)

Wayne Gretzky. To some Canadians, he’s royalty. To others, he’s merely the son of Canadian royalty, and part of the reason we have more gold medals then we deserve (1 more, if you’re following). To others, he’s a hockey player, right? However you’re not here to discuss hockey. That would be an easy discussion: He was a good hockey player, and certainly gives back to … Continue reading Wayne Gretzky Distillery (& Winery, if you’re naughty)

Bottled-in-Bond Bourbon & Blue Jays Baseball Bonanza

Baseball and Bottled-in-bond Bourbons… doesn’t get much more American than that! Except I’m in Canada, and I’m watching the Blue Jays. I’ve had these two bottles for a while, and the Henry McKenna came in a swap with /u/lecheconcarnie nearly two years ago. Realized I could do a three-way BiB multi-review, so let’s see how they fare! (both the bourbons and the Blue Jays… I’ll give updates … Continue reading Bottled-in-Bond Bourbon & Blue Jays Baseball Bonanza

North of 7 Single Barrel Whiskies – Barrel #1 & #2

Thanks to /u/devoz for sharing these. North of 7 is Ottawa’s first ever micro distillery. For some of you, you understand that starting a distillery is difficult. For others, you know starting one in Ontario is very difficult. That said, new laws have been put in place to help new distilleries here, so here’s hoping we go down to the normal “kinda hard” level of the rest… Continue reading North of 7 Single Barrel Whiskies – Barrel #1 & #2
