Mortlach 23 Blackadder Raw Cask

Thanks to /u/tvraisedme for this sample. Awhile ago I asked for Blackadder samples. After receiving some odd quotes from Rowan Atkinson and maybe a few too many remixes, people stepped up to trade me drams from the IB. So thank you people. You know who you are, and you’re not shitty baldrics at all. If you go to Blackadder’s website, you’ll see something that comes out… Continue reading Mortlach 23 Blackadder Raw Cask

Glenfiddich 15 Distillery Edition

Thanks to /u/Phreaky-Zee for this sample. Glenfiddich is a distillery I look at and wonder about. Because let’s be honest: If you’ve read my reviews, you know I shit all over Macallan on a regular basis. And give Diageo a good, nice amount of ribbing too. Large company owned whisky makers usually don’t escape my biting tongue, which will mostly mean that companies stay away… Continue reading Glenfiddich 15 Distillery Edition

Revel Stoke Spiced Whisky

Yes that’s right ladies and whisky neckbeards, it’s a whisky from Phillips Beverage Company! Yup, the same people who brought you UV Vodka, Feckin Irish Whiskey, Sour Puss hangovers, and Tomatin scotch brings you a Canadian whisky! And it comes in 6, count them 6! different flavours. Today I’m reviewing the standard bearer, Revel Stoke Spiced Whisky. I’d love to try others, however that’s the… Continue reading Revel Stoke Spiced Whisky

Strathmill 18 Cadenhead’s Authentic Collection

What the what? Is /u/TOModera just making up distilleries now? No actually. Not until I find investors, change some local ancient bullshit laws in Ontario, maybe have the seed money myself, and meet a chemist. Until then I’m left not making ones. You’ve probably never heard of Strathmill before. It’s located in the town of Keith with two other whiskies used in blends (Strathisla and… Continue reading Strathmill 18 Cadenhead’s Authentic Collection

Abraham Bowman Vanilla Bean / Coffee Finish

Thanks to /u/Marcovici and /u/I_SAID_NO_GOLDFISH for these samples. I am a firm believer that when a company stops innovating, they stop living. Look at Blackberry. As a fellow Ontarian, and someone who lost money on them, I can say that I’m disappointed in what they wrought. They were the brand leader of a product no one else had. And then what? They… did nothing until larger companies… Continue reading Abraham Bowman Vanilla Bean / Coffee Finish

Abraham Bowman High Rye

Thanks to /u/dustlesswalnut for this sample. It is said, in quiet whispers where whiskey nerds gather and chitter like the fey of old, that Abraham Bowman High Rye starts out as Buffalo Trace product. Hunkered away in secret barrels, surrounded by surly journeymen of yore and the odd uncle cousin, it’s spirited through the night to the A. Smith Bowman facility in Virginia. There, using methods… Continue reading Abraham Bowman High Rye

Tyrconnell Finish Reviews (Port, Madeira, Sherry)

Thank you to /u/Boyd86 and /u/toadpooh for these drams. Happy St. Patrick’s day. There are better reviewers than I who have done many more Irish reviews in preparation for today. I wish I could have done a larger multi-review, however I’m happy where all of this landed. Tyrconnell is brought out by those evil (really?) masterminds (I mean, they are smart, sure, but not destroying the… Continue reading Tyrconnell Finish Reviews (Port, Madeira, Sherry)

9 Mystery Bourbon Tasting

Thanks to /u/devoz, /u/lasidar, /u/texacer, /u/jolarbear , /u/muaddib99, /u/boyd86, /u/neversafeforlife, /u/slackerdude, and honestly other people who I can’t remember your reddit handles but I can remember your real names and saying them out loud would break confidentiality. So we had our Canadian Mystery Bourbon Tasting (45% or higher Abv.). And let me just say, showing no cockiness at all, that I did pretty well. I… Continue reading 9 Mystery Bourbon Tasting

Glen Spey 12 Berry’s Brothers & Rudd

Thanks to the man/woman/goat/alien cjotto9 for the sample. I’m expecting you to be the most prolific reviewer soon. You may be asking yourself… wait, shit, I’ve quoted that song before. Fuck. You wake up. You stare into the reddit and/or WordPress Abyss. Sweat drips down your face. What… exactly… is Glen Spey? And why is TOModera reviewing it? Sounds like a joke name just for… Continue reading Glen Spey 12 Berry’s Brothers & Rudd
