Glen Elgin SMWS 85.35 “Complex & full of character”

Reviews are an interesting thing. I like to think of any review as a good starting point, not an end point. For instance, recently I went to see Suicide Squad. I’m not the biggest DC fan. However I am a big comic book movie fan, and watch a lot of them. I saw some reviews. Read quite a few, and saw some others. Fans, non… Continue reading Glen Elgin SMWS 85.35 “Complex & full of character”

Strathisla SMWS 58.17 “Not shaken, not stirred”

So as a child I was a pushover. Easily convinced of anything. Quite Naive, if you will. And if you pronounce that as “knave”, then you can fuck right off. Anyway, while I like to believe that I’m over that, every so often my inner child rears it’s ugly, fat little hit and makes me go along with the group. Case in point: SMWS 58.17… Continue reading Strathisla SMWS 58.17 “Not shaken, not stirred”

Laphroaig SMWS 29.154 “Camping with M*A*S*H”

Thanks to /u/devoz for swapping me this sample. So like a lot of Millennials (albeit one on the older side of that weathered coin), I grew up with MAS*H reruns.

I was growing up watching a… Continue reading Laphroaig SMWS 29.154 “Camping with M*A*S*H”

Glen Grant SMWS 9.94 “Jam & Jerusalem”

And finally I’ll stop posting all the SMWS whiskies I have…. traded for from the welcome kit. What, you thought I had run out already? I have a problem people. And it’s called too many damn samples. And an utter need to write. And an unwavering devotion to the 15th century Pope. Oh, wait, ignore that last one. It surprised even me. So, do you… Continue reading Glen Grant SMWS 9.94 “Jam & Jerusalem”

Auchentoshan SMWS 5.42 “Bathed in a baker’s shop”

See a trend yet in my posting? I give you a couple more to figure it out. A few months ago I was on the Internet, and for once, not playing video games, watching videos, pleasuring myself, or all three. No, instead I was chatting with other Whisky nerds. And one of said whisky nerds mentioned how he needed to try a proper Lowland. Being… Continue reading Auchentoshan SMWS 5.42 “Bathed in a baker’s shop”
