Four Roses 2016 Limited Edition Barrel Strength

Thanks to /u/devoz for pouring me this sample. Four Roses 2016 Limited Edition Barrel Strength is something I almost feel like I shouldn’t have to explain. I mean, by now, even the newest of the new whiskey fans know of this, right? But that’d be unprofessional. Or something. Or more than I usually do. So for those of you not in the know, each year there’s a new… Continue reading Four Roses 2016 Limited Edition Barrel Strength

Four Roses Private Selection (OESK Prav Saraff)

Thanks to /u/devoz for pouring me a sample of this. It’s good one of us is reviewing it. We’ve all been here before, right? You are at a tasting, and someone has a Four Roses Private Selection. And you’re like “Hey, I already reviewed every single recipe.

Bruichladdich 16 First Growth Cuvee B: Pauiliac (Chateau Latour)

Thanks to /u/throwboats for pouring me this sample. Bruichladdich has a lot of releases. And there’s a lot of casks that have been independently bottled. Then you have the fact they are on Islay, so you have Feis Ile releases, and let’s not forget they have single cask offerings at Scotch Mecca as well. As such, I’ve reviewed quite a few Bruichladdich whiskies. I’m not the top… Continue reading Bruichladdich 16 First Growth Cuvee B: Pauiliac (Chateau Latour)

Ledaig 19 1997 Carn Mor Celebration of the Cask

The past few years I’ve had more and more Ledaig. It’s pretty simple to see why: The whisky tastes good at a young age, isn’t from Islay but is peated, and my fellow whisky friends are big fans of it. Thus when I had the chance for a friend to bring back a bottle of Ledaig 19 1997 Carn Mor Celebration of the Cask from Alberta, I… Continue reading Ledaig 19 1997 Carn Mor Celebration of the Cask
