Port Ellen 1979 21 Douglas Laing Old Malt Cask [Feather’s Flight Review Set #14]

Another year, another 4-10 reviews up in a two month span of whiskies that no one man should ever drink. But here I am. I know what you’re thinking: I must be fat. And drunk all the time. Only one of those are true, and I’m not drunk right now, so fatty’s going to keep writing. Like I said before, I passed the peat barrier,… Continue reading Port Ellen 1979 21 Douglas Laing Old Malt Cask [Feather’s Flight Review Set #14]

Ardbeg 1974 Signatory Vintage [Feather’s Flight Review Set #14]

So after dinner, after I’ve enjoyed my meal (hmmm… salmon burger with winter salad…), and most importantly, after I’ve had a chance to clear off my tongue with a litre of water, I’m ready for my next birthday dram at Feather’s Pub. It’s a thing I do every so often. Three times a year, if I’m being honest. 20 if I’m lying. 40 if I’m… Continue reading Ardbeg 1974 Signatory Vintage [Feather’s Flight Review Set #14]

Balblair 1990 15 Dewar-Rattray [Feather’s Flight Review Set #14]

So a guy walks into a bar. And some other people do too, but let’s just talk about this one guy. It’s a month after his birthday, however he’s enjoying it now. And he has some drinks. And the bar is called Feather’s Pub, located in Toronto, in the Beaches. And that guy is me. So my wife wasn’t too happy that I had picked… Continue reading Balblair 1990 15 Dewar-Rattray [Feather’s Flight Review Set #14]

Mortlach 1988 17 Signatory Cask Strength [Feather’s Flight Review Set #14]

Shout out to /u/Devoz who requested I review a Mortlach, ANY Mortlach. So here’s a Cask Strength one. Specifically Feather’s PubMalt of the Month. Well… this and Octomore 6.1. Which I own, so I went with this. Also I don’t start with Peat. That’s just a recipe for disaster. Like this intro where I all of a sudden say I’m doing a review series on Feathers… Continue reading Mortlach 1988 17 Signatory Cask Strength [Feather’s Flight Review Set #14]

Sheep Dip 1990 Old Hebridean

Thank you to /u/Johnysteaks for a sample of this dram. So. Sheep Dip. Sounds like either something Gary Larson drew and then moved onto Cows or something that won’t taste good. Actually, in the past my family has been told it’s called that to tell you where the water flowed through before being used in the whisky. So again, gross. But actually Sheep Dip is just… Continue reading Sheep Dip 1990 Old Hebridean

Danfield’s Limited Edition 21

Thanks to /u/boyd86 for this sample, way back in June, when we were young and silly, and didn’t really understand the world. Red Flags. Why are they called that? Well because we did something before and they happened. Which is hard. Like, take for instance, if I walk down a street in Egypt, and I’m mugged. Should I be safer with my wallet? Maybe. Should… Continue reading Danfield’s Limited Edition 21
