Elijah Craig Barrel Proof [Batch #A117]

Thanks to /u/muaddib99 for sharing a dram of this bourbon. It’s getting harder and harder to keep track of exactly what’s going on with Elijah Craig. You see, I don’t keep a daily drinker around, as I’m backlogged all the way to 2022 with samples to drink. Also it’s not so easy to get Elijah Craig Barrel Proof at the LCBO, nor is it as inexpensive as others… Continue reading Elijah Craig Barrel Proof [Batch #A117]

Smooth Ambler Old Scout Single Barrel 10 Bourbon Cask 3301

Thanks to /u/devoz for sharing a sample with me. To some people, saying “Jester’s Cap” evokes different things. For those of you who got plenty of sunlight and perhaps human contact in high school, it’ll evoke perhaps King Lear or old medieval paintings, with fantastic colours and silliness all around. For those of us who had an addiction to cardboard crack (a.k.a. Magic: The Gathering) and… Continue reading Smooth Ambler Old Scout Single Barrel 10 Bourbon Cask 3301

Bunnahabhain 34 1980 Single Malts of Scotland

Thanks to /u/Theslicknick6 for the sample. And with this, we end the “Bunna-have you any more sir?” series, in which I go through my backlog of way, WAY too many Bunnahabhains and review them. I hope you weren’t expecting another 2,000 reviews in which I try and hit every single one. I have tried to cover as many as possible, however there’s some that I just couldn’t get… Continue reading Bunnahabhain 34 1980 Single Malts of Scotland

Bunnahabhain 32 1979 Berry Brothers & Rudd Berry’s Own Selection

Thanks to /u/Theslicknick6 for the sample. Welcome to my new ongoing series, “Bunna-have you any more sir?”, in which I go through my backlog of way, WAY too many Bunnahabhains and review them. Okay, so we’ve done young Bunnahabhains, 20 something Bunnahabhains, teenage Bunnahabhains, peated and unpeated ones. Also ounces in ex-bourbon and ex-sherry. Thus it’s time to move onto insane ex-bourbon casks that were lowered into… Continue reading Bunnahabhain 32 1979 Berry Brothers & Rudd Berry’s Own Selection

Bunnahabhain 26 1987 Berry Brothers & Rudd

Thanks to /u/Catharticintent for the sample. Welcome to my new ongoing series, “Bunna-have you any more sir?”, in which I go through my backlog of way, WAY too many Bunnahabhains and review them. Alright, my slow push to try different Bunnahabhains in order to find one that’s either bad (and oh, I found it) or amazing (not just yet), we’re onto the famous Berry’s Brothers. And why… Continue reading Bunnahabhain 26 1987 Berry Brothers & Rudd

Bunnahabhain 24 1987 Duncan Taylor The Octave

Thanks to /u/Theslicknick6 for this sample. Welcome to my new ongoing series, “Bunna-have you any more sir?”, in which I go through my backlog of way, WAY too many Bunnahabhains and review them. Alright, alright. So far, we’ve seen older Bunnahabhain that were okay. And we’ve basically hit the comments that we started with: Buying Bunnahabhain means you’re buying a consistent “okay” whisky, which isn’t a bad… Continue reading Bunnahabhain 24 1987 Duncan Taylor The Octave

Bunnahabhain 22 1989 A.D. Rattray Cask Collection

Thanks to /u/boyd86 for this sample. Welcome to my new ongoing series, “Bunna-have you any more sir?”, in which I go through my backlog of way, WAY too many Bunnahabhains and review them. Alright, the last old Bunnahabhain fell into the issue we’ve had: An old Bunnahabhain that wasn’t great, but wasn’t meh. Consistently okay. Right in the middle. Thus we move onto Bunnahabhain 22 1989 A.D. Rattray… Continue reading Bunnahabhain 22 1989 A.D. Rattray Cask Collection
