Forty Creek Port Wood Reserve 2012

So here we are, the last of my “monument” reviews for a little while. This is /r/worldwhisky review #60. No major one until I hit whisky network review #300. After this, I’ll be focusing on Bourbon and Cambeltons for awhile. And of course it’s Canadian. Because it should be, because… reasons? I don’t know, I just didn’t think I had done enough Canucks in the last… Continue reading Forty Creek Port Wood Reserve 2012

Redbreast 12 Cask Strength (Community Review)

Hey, it’s /u/worldwhisky community reviewing time, and I’m ready! Thanks to /u/uncletobys for sending me a sample of this dram in our recent trans-Pacific swap (that’s where the Pacific goes about a life altering change that we all respect… I think). Anyway, let’s talk about the dram of the day, Redbreast 12 Cask Strength. Not Red Breast, as I keep typing it. These are not reviews about… Continue reading Redbreast 12 Cask Strength (Community Review)

Old Weller Antique 107

So it’s a milestone kinda week as such for me. I’ve reviewed all the “Beginner Drams” over at /r/Scotch, I’ve hit 200 scotch reviews, I’m about to hit 60 reviews at /r/worldwhisky, and, most pertinent to this review, I’m about to upgrade my flag so that it’s more ‘merican. What’s more special than a strong as wheater? Well, some would say the birth of children,… Continue reading Old Weller Antique 107

Laphroaig Sextuple Review [Special 200th review/Triple Wood,15 year, Cairdeas Origin, Cairdeas 2013, Cairdeas 2014, PX Cask]

So I’ve been saving these up for awhile, as who doesn’t everyone enjoy a multi-review from a verbose nerd who loves the sound of his own words? That’s what I thought, you LOVE IT. Anyway, it’s been awhile since I’ve had Laphroaig. And there’s a reason for that. It costs a shit ton here in Canada. Also it’s hard to find in bars. But for… Continue reading Laphroaig Sextuple Review [Special 200th review/Triple Wood,15 year, Cairdeas Origin, Cairdeas 2013, Cairdeas 2014, PX Cask]

Canadian Club Small Batch Classic 12

Mad Men, am I right? It’s a show about a guy who, if you knew him in real life, you’d probably avoid the ever-loving-fuck out of him. It’s from a time where women weren’t treated correctly and all the things that Tumblr purports about now we’re wild and on display. Yet, for all that horribleness, there was a jump in sales of Canadian Club. Because… Continue reading Canadian Club Small Batch Classic 12

Santis Highlander Edition Cask Strength Peated

I will always say this: If you enjoy Scotch, or Bourbon, yet can’t keep up with the price hikes, you should try a whisky that is made near you. It won’t always be amazing, however for every 10 bad or just “okay” whiskies out there, there’s a good company making tasty stuff. Just look at Amrut, or Forty Creek, or Sullivan’s Cove, or Nikka. If… Continue reading Santis Highlander Edition Cask Strength Peated
