BenRiach 17 Septendecim [The Highlander Pub Flight Review Set #1]

Still at the Highlander Pub in Ottawa. About to make a mistake on ordering a peated whisky second, thus ending what should have been a 4-5 whisky review binge and a drunken stumble through our nation’s capital. The Peat barrier. An often issue that no one in reviewer circles want to bring up. Why? Because we’ve all gone past it and not come back. If… Continue reading BenRiach 17 Septendecim [The Highlander Pub Flight Review Set #1]

Tullibardine Sovereign [The Highlander Pub Flight Review Set #1]

Hey, look, it’s proof that I can be both right and wrong in two reviews! I’m at a different whisky bar now: The Highlander Pub in Ottawa. Go there. Drink. Be Happy. I recently wrote about Bruichladdich, well known for finishing some of their products and having a large amount of whiskies. And I recently reviewed a bourbon cask from them to show they aren’t… Continue reading Tullibardine Sovereign [The Highlander Pub Flight Review Set #1]

Bruichladdich 16 Bourbon Cask

Bruichladdich can make it hard to be a whisky reviewer. Especially one with video game mentalities in our day and age. If you don’t have that feeling, then congratulations. You have a sensible way of looking at objectives, with an understanding that there are some that you won’t achieve. Those of us who otherwise grew up wondering if Mario can, in fact, go everywhere, get… Continue reading Bruichladdich 16 Bourbon Cask

Highland Park Freya [Pub L’Isle Noire Flight Review Set #2]

And I finish up my trip to L’Île Noire Pub, I do a dram that I am both interested in and find silly that it exists Glory be to Freyja, she who rules over the afterlife field Fólkvangr. It is our gift to her to send half of those that die in glorious battle. She presides over all that is love, sex, beuaty, fertility, gold,… Continue reading Highland Park Freya [Pub L’Isle Noire Flight Review Set #2]

Pittyvaich 1993 Connoisseurs Choice Gordon & MacPhail [Pub L’Isle Noire Flight Review Set #2]

? Still at L’Île Noire Pub. Still drinking. Still having a good time. Hey, a distillery I have never have! While that could describe many, many distilleries, I’m actually at a loss for this happening often. There’s just so much whisky out there and I like putting those long lists and showing off my whisky review penis out there for the world to see. But… Continue reading Pittyvaich 1993 Connoisseurs Choice Gordon & MacPhail [Pub L’Isle Noire Flight Review Set #2]

Glenmorangie Tusail [Pub L’Isle Noire Flight Review Set #2]

? Went back to L’Île Noire Pub because I was in Montreal and it’s a great pub and they have a ton of whisky and gin. Great place, good prices, good staff. But why choose a Highland whisky? I mean, it’s not a bad region, per say. It’s just not usually my thing. My jive is off with it. I am not a Highlander. If… Continue reading Glenmorangie Tusail [Pub L’Isle Noire Flight Review Set #2]
