anCnoc Peter Arkle Limited Edition 2nd Release

Thanks to /u/percyhedgehog[1] for the sample of this artsy brand. Knockando, which used to name it’s whisky the same Alcohol soaked Gaelic name, now brings out anCnoc (a-nock). Let’s get passed that. It’s all silly words. And I already wrote about that. Probably. I don’t know, I’ve been drinking. Probably. Anyway, back in 2012, when we were all young and didn’t know any better, Knockandu… Continue reading anCnoc Peter Arkle Limited Edition 2nd Release

St. George’s English Whisky Company Chapter 6

Thanks to /u/boyd86 for this recent swap. Glad I was finally able to try it. England. Land of the Englands. Place sometimes called “The UK” and “Old Queenie Pants summer Home”. I, personally, love going back to the Mother Land of England. The food is different, the people enjoy my funny, odd accented ways, and overall there’s more whisky there. You’d think, what with the Breton… Continue reading St. George’s English Whisky Company Chapter 6

Benriach 12 Importanticus Fumosus

Thanks to /u/slackerdude for the sample. So I like BenRiach. A lot. Maybe it’s the giant fucking R. Or maybe it’s just the idea of a peated Speyside that seems to work (and no work as well without the peat). Or maybe it’s the ton of finishes. Or the fake Latin that annoys friends who took Latin in University. Or perhaps because it’s not too prohibitively… Continue reading Benriach 12 Importanticus Fumosus

Nikka Triple Leftovers Review [Coffey Grain, Yoichi 10, Miyagikyo 15]

Thanks to all the people who swapped me these. It’s been awhile, so I can’t find where they came from. Apologies. I’m logging in my swaps now to ensure that everyone gets a shout out in the future. So fun story time (feel free to skip): I ended up wanting to do a review of all the Nikka Malts. And then I wanted to do… Continue reading Nikka Triple Leftovers Review [Coffey Grain, Yoichi 10, Miyagikyo 15]

Bowmore Legend

Thanks to /r/LetThereBeR0ck for this sample. So as I slowly drag myself (oh poor me) towards the 500 mark, I felt like… a legend. And what better than something named Bowmore Legend. Wait… just about anything would be better, I’m not a fan of Bowmore. Well, that’s not true. So far I’ve enjoyed quite a few of the NAS named Bowmore whiskies that have been offered.… Continue reading Bowmore Legend

Three Ships 5 Premium Select

Thanks to /u/slackerdude for the sample. I am a firm believer in supporting young distilleries in regions that aren’t as well known for whisky. Imagine if we hadn’t; we’d have no interesting Japanese whisky, or Indian whisky, or even Australian whisky. Yes, I know, sometimes it doesn’t turn out ‘okay’. Sometimes it tastes poorly. However I still believe eventually something will rise out of lesser known… Continue reading Three Ships 5 Premium Select
