Dailuaine SMWS 41.83 “Sherry, Sherry Baby”

Thanks to /u/devoz for pouring me this sample. Dailuaine. I have a theory. It’s not popular because you can’t order it drunk. Heck you can’t order it sober unless you understand Gaelic, and that leaves very few people in the world able to do so. I feel bad for anyone whose first language isn’t at least somewhat related to Gaelic trying to order it. Probably ends up… Continue reading Dailuaine SMWS 41.83 “Sherry, Sherry Baby”

Glenrothes SMWS 30.81 “A baker’s delight”

Thanks to /u/devoz for pouring this for me. So let’s get right to it: I’m 100% the target for this dram. Easily. Glenrothes SMWS 30.81 “A baker’s delight” is named after baked goods, and I have a sweet tooth that will strip the flesh off of a chocolate bar in five seconds flat. It’s an old, cask strength, refill ex-Bourbon hogshead Glenrothes. I’m already sold. That’s right in… Continue reading Glenrothes SMWS 30.81 “A baker’s delight”

GlenDronach 17 1994 Single Cask

Thanks to /u/devoz for pouring me a sample of this. Let’s take a nostalgia trip, shall we? You’ll see people talk about GlenDronach with much happiness. And then there’s some other whisky geeks who seem to get kinda sad when they come up. Why is that? Is it because they stopped peating their whisky back in 2002, probably in a pact with the devil? Maybe. But it’s… Continue reading GlenDronach 17 1994 Single Cask

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. Why do another?” Then someone mentions that they all have different ages, are in different warehouses, how different barrels react differently,… Continue reading Four Roses Private Selection (OESK Prav Saraff)

Glenburgie 18 Old Malt Cask Hunter Laing

I’m a bit behind on my reviews. Which bothers no one more than myself. A few months ago now the Toronto Whisky Society brought out a pair of selected whiskies. Last year there were people who asked a simple question: Could we have a less expensive version, please? This wasn’t easy for me to swallow. Not that I’m super rich. I’m not, really. But the… Continue reading Glenburgie 18 Old Malt Cask Hunter Laing

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)
