Bruichladdich 23 1992 Signatory Vintage Un-Chillfiltered Collection

Thanks to /u/Theslicknick6 for pouring me a sample. More! I demand more Bruichladdich! I don’t really ever want to be a completionist on Bruichladdich. It was brought up the other day on a whisky discord, and I had to think about it. Part of me would love to point to some aspect of their releases and say “Yeah, I’ve done a bunch of those”. And in some… Continue reading Bruichladdich 23 1992 Signatory Vintage Un-Chillfiltered Collection

Bruichladdich 12 Micro-Provenance 2006 Rivesaltes KWM

Thanks to /u/Throzen for pouring me a sample of this. Picking casks isn’t easy. As someone who’s only had to pick from stuff that others have picked that were then picked from other people, I’ve been lucky. That many levels of distillation, much like whisky, means I’m less on the hook. Which brings us to Bruichladdich Micro-Provenance 2006 Rivesaltes KWM. Someone from Kensington Wine Market went to Bruichladdich,… Continue reading Bruichladdich 12 Micro-Provenance 2006 Rivesaltes KWM

Orkney 17 2000 The Whisky Agency & Heads & Tails

This year we changed things up with the Toronto Whisky Society: We had two releases. Due to feedback, people requested both a more expensive release and a less expensive release. This brings in Orkney 17 2018 The Whisky Agency & Heads & Tails, not just a whisky with a lot of Ampersands in the name, but also the more expensive release for this year. We don’t… Continue reading Orkney 17 2000 The Whisky Agency & Heads & Tails

Thomas H. Handy Sazerac Rye 2016

Thanks to /u/devoz for pouring me a sample. I usually feel a bit sheepish about some of my reviews. They’re behind the times, to be honest. However when it comes to the rarer, harder to find stuff, I’m going to review them when I get the chance. Period. Take, for instance, Thomas H. Handy Sazerac Rye from 2016. Yes, this would have been more pertinent two years ago. However… Continue reading Thomas H. Handy Sazerac Rye 2016

Green Spot Chatêau Montelena [MYSTERY]

Thanks to /u/Throzen for pouring this as a mystery. I’m a big fan of Irish whiskies. What caused that? Mostly Green Spot, if I’m being honest. Each time I’ve had it, I’m impressed. And I’ll scream my eccentric thoughts from the belfry every chance I get. I’ll even write a review or two on it. The people at Mitchell & Son haven’t just sat back on one… Continue reading Green Spot Chatêau Montelena [MYSTERY]
