Brora 1982 Gordon & MacPhail Connoisseur’s Choice [Feather’s Flight Review Set #17]

Went to The Feathers Pub for my belated birthday. And aimed to have some high end drams before they all went away and the LCBO hunts down anyone who even grows barley. Because that’s probably their next step. Until 1967, the Brora distillery was named Clynelish. Then it changed names, and started making heavily peated whisky to fill in issues with Islay not getting their… Continue reading Brora 1982 Gordon & MacPhail Connoisseur’s Choice [Feather’s Flight Review Set #17]

Auchentoshan 25 1978 [Feather’s Flight Review Set #17]

Went to The Feathers Pub for my belated birthday. In my family, we don’t really love you if we celebrate your birthday on the day you were born. It’s against the rules. Also December is busy as fuck. With my father paying and my cousins nicely coming along, we ate English food (that I love) and I drank (which I’m mostly fond of). These are… Continue reading Auchentoshan 25 1978 [Feather’s Flight Review Set #17]

Caol Ila SMWS 53.236 “Culinary Cannonballs”

Thanks to /u/xile_ for this sample. Blah blah been on a Caol Ila kick blah blah noted I needed more blah blah less peat blah blah fornication with a goat blah blah never allowed in Kuala Lampur again. I’ve said it before: I’m trying to catch up on the little distillery that I seemingly loved the first two drams I had and then never went back… Continue reading Caol Ila SMWS 53.236 “Culinary Cannonballs”

BenRiach 22 1992 Single Cask #976 Tawny Port Cask

Thanks to /u/charlesdobson for swapping me this sample. I can be obsessive. I played Magic: The Gathering (aka Cardboard Crack) for about a decade. And I had a good time for most of it. I collected cards, but never spent more than I had. See, only somewhat obsessive. Recently I wanted to play Mega Man. I don’t know why, I just wanted to. So I bought… Continue reading BenRiach 22 1992 Single Cask #976 Tawny Port Cask

Caol Ila 15 Signatory Millennium Edition [Feather’s Flight Review Set #16]

To finish up prep for an upcoming tasting I’m running at The Feathers Pub, I ‘had’ to review some of these whiskies before hand to help people go through it. Or at least I wanted to… but unfortunately the incorrect Caol Ila was poured. At the end of each review set, I try to do an Islay. Partially because of something I call the Peat… Continue reading Caol Ila 15 Signatory Millennium Edition [Feather’s Flight Review Set #16]

Aberlour A’bunadh Three-Way Review: Batches 6, 46 & 53

As many of you know, I live in the Great White Land-of-Provincial-Liquor-Regulation, and our prices for whisky suck. See, the government had this whole prohibition idea, and then when it ended, they decided they still needed to babysit us and ensure we didn’t drink too much. Thus was born the Liquor Control Board of Ontario, which today has morphed into a retailing giant that spends … Continue reading Aberlour A’bunadh Three-Way Review: Batches 6, 46 & 53
