Glendronach 43 Year Old Single Cask (1971, #2920) [800th Whisky Review]

First off, yes. This is my 800th review on the whisky network. I’m now about 1% of the database. Part of it. A good chunk, at least. Second, thank you to /u/xile_ for this sample. I owe you, and thanks for giving me a milestone worthy dram to review. It’s kinda funny too, because a few days after reviewing this I ended up with a bad… Continue reading Glendronach 43 Year Old Single Cask (1971, #2920) [800th Whisky Review]

Old Pulteney 1997 Kensington Wine Market Cask 1636

As I inch closer to both my 500th Scotch review and my 800th whisky network review, I start looking over my different demi, quarter, and semi bottles. I ponder which order, and then consult the great source I usually do: A monk trapped in a brandy barrel for thousands of years that I swapped four cantaloupes and a Thaiwainese juggler’s contract for. You know, like… Continue reading Old Pulteney 1997 Kensington Wine Market Cask 1636

Colonel E.H. Taylor Jr. Cured Oak

Thanks to /u/I_SAID_NO_GOLDFISH for this sample. Hey, look at that /u/TOModera guy! He’s reviewing a bunch of High End bourbons…. is he dying? No, just getting stuffed like Chuck Testa. And I don’t mean food. DICK JOKE! Anyway, there’s my dedication to Amy Schumer. Moving along, we have another one of the seemingly random and genius whiskies released by BT each year that makes us Bourbon… Continue reading Colonel E.H. Taylor Jr. Cured Oak

Port Ellen 1978 22 [Feather’s Flight Review Set #15]

Review number 2 of Feathers Pub, and I was asked to make it a doozy. So it’s time to skip dessert, we’re going in. Yup, reviewing an Islay. A mothballed one at that. My highest reviewed distillery at that. A dram that most of us won’t ever have, because the rest of us have other hobbies or other things like children or families to invest… Continue reading Port Ellen 1978 22 [Feather’s Flight Review Set #15]

Royal Lochnagar Selected Reserve [Feather’s Flight Review Set #15]

Impromptu Feathers Pub night? Who would have expected it from me? Well, me for one. I was asked, nicely, by my father and his friends, to pick out a whisky for a new whisky drinker to try. And I was told to pick any one, especially a high end one. So I did. I picked Royal Lochnagar 23 year Cask Strength. You’ll notice that isn’t… Continue reading Royal Lochnagar Selected Reserve [Feather’s Flight Review Set #15]
