Ardbeg Auriverdes, Galileo, Alligator, & Ardbog

Ardbeg. Now, when that name is put up anywhere, just by itself, we gush over it here at /r/Scotch like a specialty porn star. And it’s not really a surprise. They make amazing stuff. It’s peaty, it’s finished well, and they even have NAS product that we enjoy. So when I decided to go forth with this limited edition review bonanza, I didn’t know how it… Continue reading Ardbeg Auriverdes, Galileo, Alligator, & Ardbog

High West Distillery [Campfire, Son of Bourye, American Prairie Reserve]

Thanks to /u/EMoneySC2 for the awesome, big ole swap, that included these three drams. I finally was able to try whisky from Utah. So let’s stop right there. I tell you, hey, want to try High West Whiskey? And you’ll be like, “Sure… where’s it made?” And then I’ll say “Oh, Utah.” And then a damn Pace commercial happens all over again, and no one wants… Continue reading High West Distillery [Campfire, Son of Bourye, American Prairie Reserve]

Eddu Silver & Gold [Review, Not a Rudolph Song]

Special thanks to /u/wrathfulhaggis for answering my request to try these rare malts. But you may be asking yourself… why would I want to try a rare, not really well known whisky from France (Brittany)? I mean, France (Brittany) isn’t known for whisky, right? And why do I keep saying France (Brittany)? Okay, so first off, this whisky comes from Brittany, France. And you should note… Continue reading Eddu Silver & Gold [Review, Not a Rudolph Song]

Bunnahabhain 1997 Signatory Vintage

Still catching up on swaps. Special thanks to /u/jimvarney01 for the swap, and the picture (it’s the Islay, the one you care about…. on the left…. not it’s left, your left). Anyway, today we’ll be going through Signatory Bunnahabhain 1997. I don’t really have the greatest relationship when it comes to Bunnahabhain. First off, showing my North American side, I can’t really pronounce it. At all.… Continue reading Bunnahabhain 1997 Signatory Vintage

Sullivan’s Cove Bourbon Maturation Cask Strength Single Cask Malt Whisky

Been having a little bit extra this week, as I’m attempting to empty quite a few bottles for both a swap I setup and the upcoming, very exciting Mystery Dram mega swap. Very excited. Big Thanks to /u/UncleTobys for the international swap. And also a bitter, jealousy filled “Harumph” for your ability to find these tasty, tasty drams. “Hey TOModera, whatcha bitching about?” Well I’ll tell… Continue reading Sullivan’s Cove Bourbon Maturation Cask Strength Single Cask Malt Whisky

Mosswood Barrel Aged American Whiskey – Espresso Barrel

Shout out to /u/kilrathi for this sample of… interesting whiskey. Why interesting? Is it interesting in that “Ah, it’s worldly” way? Or in that “Well, he’s going to end up owning 16 snakes and call himself Mercutio” way? Or maybe that in between, like “He wears pink a lot and sings baritone and has a donkey named Sally” way? Well, let’s start with Mosswood themselves, shall… Continue reading Mosswood Barrel Aged American Whiskey – Espresso Barrel
