Thanks to /u/j4ni for this sample. I think it’s too easy to call Diageo the Devil. See? I just did that. I think the real thing behind it is we worry that some of the care and love disappears as large companies venture into our lives. We all love Salsbury Steak (most of us do, at least) yet have had a pretty shitty one from… Continue reading Smoky Goat
Thanks to /u/I_SAID_NO_GOLDFISH for this sample. Mad Men. Some of us watched it. I probably should have, since I’m in Marketing and it would make me feel cool before breaking down in tears at what really happens in my life. Just kidding: I cry anyways. However I didn’t watch it. Why? Because he drank Canadian Club. That’s not actually the reason, that’s just one I’m… Continue reading Canadian Club (1969)
Get this: Master of Malt, who have tons of whisky, also do single cask bottlings themselves! Oh, everyone knew that. Guess here in Canada, where Single Cask bottlings offend the Governor General or some such horseshit, it’s still pretty amazing to me. Man I wish we’d fix our laws here. Oh well, at least I had friends who were willing to sit on this sample… Continue reading Ardbeg 23 1991 Single Cask (Master of Malt)
Thanks to /u/lvl1dramacenter for this sample. Another high end Compass Box? So soon? Well I said I’d review these soon, and then… I buried the rest of my Compass Box samples in my sample hutch. Which is hard to search when you trade like a madman and don’t drink fast enough. Poor me. Too much booze. Up next I’ll cry because my wife is too beautiful… Continue reading Compass Box This is Not a Luxury Whisky
Thanks to /u/dustlesswalnut for this sample. Let’s not beat around the bush: Mostly because there’s very few women who enjoy that (especially Lesbians). Oh wait, maybe that’s beat off… my bad. Anyway, what I’m saying is this: I’ve had other Flaming Hearts before, and I’m not talking about my time as a great African war leader and eating them to gain my enemies power. I’m talking… Continue reading Compass Box Flaming Heart 15th Anniversary Edition
Very Optimal? Probably not. Virgin Oil? Maybe, though I think I wouldn’t have drank most of it then. Vertically Optimal? I’m going to guess no, as it predates silly marketing speak. Whatever the meaning of V.O. in Seagram’s V.O., the whisky itself has a long and some would say.. uh… what’s a nice word for “it happened”…. whatever…. history in Canada. It’s Canadian made. Started back… Continue reading Seagram’s V.O.
Thanks to /u/stinkysauce for this sample. It’s 4:31am, my head is pounding, I’ve pulled the muscles in my stomach again, and I can’t blame it on excessive alcohol because I had all of 1 last night. How are you doing? That said, at least this gives me a moment to catch up on some reviews. As I’ve said before, I’m a sucker for BenRiach. I… Continue reading BenRiach 23 A.D. Rattray
