Highland Park SMWS 4.231 “Harbour-side takeaway”

Thanks to Tim W. for the sample! And what do welcoming people with their own airport say to me when I call them while flying? That’s right: Hi! Land, Park! Thus that’s what I’m going to do for these reviews. It’s the last of the series, don’t worry, you don’t need to read that pun again. Takeout. The idea is you go to a restaurant,… Continue reading Highland Park SMWS 4.231 “Harbour-side takeaway”

Highland Park 18 1995 Gordon & MacPhail Reserve for La Maison du Whisky

Why’d I write this review series? Cause I got High(land Park). Puns are life. I have not yet been to France. I had the chance in grade 9.

Because while “limited” may mean anything from 80 bottles to 30,000, some of these… Continue reading Highland Park Thor

Four Roses Private Selection (OBSF – Fine Wine & Good Spirits) [MYSTERY]

When people leave my nation of preference, Canada, and head to the country beneath us (in geography, not in a mocking sense), they ask me (and many other of my whiskey friends) what they should pick up.
