Port Dundas 20 year old (2011 Release)

3rd times the charm…. I’m going to be on my best behaviour today, as I’m reviewing a single grain whisky. And if you’ve been following, every single time I review a single grain whisky, I screw something up and /u/UncleTobys finds something I’ve written wrong. Thus I’m a tad more paranoid than usual. Which is a new state for me, as I’m normally really paranoid. Like,… Continue reading Port Dundas 20 year old (2011 Release)

Kavalan Concertmaster – Port Cask Finish

Hi, I’m /u/TOModera , and today, I’m going to try and teach you what tiny things I can look up and type concerning a place I’ve never learned about. For instance: Fun Fact: The Kavalan were a group of indigenous people who originally inhabited the Northeastern corner of Taiwan. Now what the flaming hell does that have to do with whisky? Guess you’ll have to read… Continue reading Kavalan Concertmaster – Port Cask Finish

Van Winkle Family Reserve Rye 2013

Finishing up on my Easter reviews, I brought out a nice sample sent to me by /u/EMoneySC2 , which we swapped a few months ago and I’ve been saving for a special occasion. My uncle isn’t that huge into Bourbon, however he hears enough to get by, knowing what can be tasty, what’s wanted, etc. And last time we had a family get-together, he mention Pappy.… Continue reading Van Winkle Family Reserve Rye 2013

Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban

Special thanks to /u/EMoneySC2 for the excellent swap we did 3 months ago. This drams for you (as you supplied me with it). Went up north this past weekend, and was surrounded by a group of people all enjoying whisky (and rum, but that’s another subreddit). Specifically whiskies I brought to share. Because seriously, sharing whisky is pretty sweet. Up first was time to share my… Continue reading Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban

Crown Royal Special Reserve [Re-Review]

Quite a long time ago (for me at least, I’m still young at heart), I posted a review of Crown Royal Special Reserve. The story behind it was back in my university days, when I wasn’t drinking Scotch just yet, I drank Manhattans. And I love Manhattans made with Canadian Whisky. Extra Cherries too. I’m really girly when I want to be (I’m a dude).… Continue reading Crown Royal Special Reserve [Re-Review]

Talisker Distiller’s Edition 2012

Special thanks to /u/EMoneySC2 for this sample, he’s seriously one of the coolest guys on the Whisky Network. To make up to my tongue for the last review, which was a blend that will help my overall score go down, I went searching for some drams. And I picked one that I’d know I’d like, Talisker Distillers Edition 2012. Let’s take a moment to talk about… Continue reading Talisker Distiller’s Edition 2012

Cutty Sark

Special thanks (I think) to /u/CaptainPortugal for the dram I’m reviewing today. It’s quite… special. He threw it in as a bonus, so.. I get to try it. And that’s a good thing. So I’ve helped my wife clean up the house, have worked any cleaning chemicals out of my nose, and I’m ready for my review present to myself. And it’s…. Cutty Sark. Well, hey,… Continue reading Cutty Sark

Tomatin Unde-Review (12, 15, 18, 18 Cadenhead, 20 Douglas Laing, 21, 21 Doulas Laing, 30, Cù Bòcan, Decades, Legacy)

No preamble about my life, no rambling about genitalia or frustrations, nothing as this one is going to be a barn burner; The often mentioned (by me) Tomatin Unde-Review that I’ve been saving up to do for way, way too long. Tomatin is a Highland distillery located in, surprisingly, the village of Tomatin. They’ve been distilling since the 16th century, however they became an official… Continue reading Tomatin Unde-Review (12, 15, 18, 18 Cadenhead, 20 Douglas Laing, 21, 21 Doulas Laing, 30, Cù Bòcan, Decades, Legacy)
