Clynelish 27 1974 Signatory Vintage (Feather’s Review Set #19)

Wait a second, it’s also near my birthday!… a month ago. So as is custom, I dressed up in my favourite clown costume and headed out to the bar. I kid, it’s more of a pub. The Feathers Pub, to be exact. Yes, I finally got around to it again, because it’s my birthday. So this year we started with Clynelish 27 1974 Signatory Vintage. Simple enough,… Continue reading Clynelish 27 1974 Signatory Vintage (Feather’s Review Set #19)

Sheep Dip

I did an Advent Calendar made up of samples I had acquired over time, chosen by my wife, amongst all of the samples in my whisky shelf. We’re onto Advent Day #2. What will it bring? I’m hoping candy. But probably not. All of these were done blind, poured blind, and then took the Bird Box challenge. Maybe. I don’t really know. Let’s see how… Continue reading Sheep Dip

Macallan Masters Decanter Series + Rare Cask

Thanks to my wife for taking the pictures. As part of the Toronto Whisky Society I was invited to take part in a Macallan Master Decanter Series tasting. While I try to keep any bias from affecting the below reviews, I am human, therefore feel free to tell me I suck multiple times. Well, it wasn’t all of the Master Decanter Series. You see there’s the Macallan Rare Cask,… Continue reading Macallan Masters Decanter Series + Rare Cask

Bruichladdich Port Charlotte 16 2001 Archives

Thanks to /u/xile_ for this sample. Port Charlotte came up during a tasting the other day. We were discussing a new bottling of it from a different independent bottler, and someone mentioned that it was “the oldest Port Charlotte on the market”. When asked how old, the reply was “17-years-old”. Which makes everyone pause for a second. Port Charlotte is still fairly new, yet it’s become the… Continue reading Bruichladdich Port Charlotte 16 2001 Archives
