Speyside 29 1989 The Whisky Agency Heads & Tails

A few months ago I was speaking with a whisky buddy of mine. I mentioned that I was a Balvenie fan, which struck a neuron in his head. Turns out there was a whisky coming in. While we can’t say for certain that it was Balvenie, the rumours were that it was peated Balvenie. But those are just rumours. And we all know what rumours… Continue reading Speyside 29 1989 The Whisky Agency Heads & Tails

Irish Exclusive Malts 12 2003 Creative Whisky Company

Thanks to /u/throwboats for pouring me this dram. This past year (2018) I had lots and lots of plans. Finish my accounting schooling, find a new job in a new career space, figure out what Moon cheese is, and review enough Irish Whiskey to finally hit 100 total reviews. I’m happy to say I got most of that done, and I now have knowledge not meant for… Continue reading Irish Exclusive Malts 12 2003 Creative Whisky Company

Irish Single Malt 13 No.1 Batch 2 That Boutique-y Whisky Company / Irish Single Malt 14 No.2 Batch 1 That Boutique-y Whisky Company

This past year (2018) I had lots and lots of plans. Finish my accounting schooling, find a new job in a new career space, revive Michael Jackson’s corpse into a bard-lich, and review enough Irish Whiskey to finally hit 100 total reviews. I’m happy to say I got most of that done, and Winter is Coming. As for posting the reviews, I may have gotten… Continue reading Irish Single Malt 13 No.1 Batch 2 That Boutique-y Whisky Company / Irish Single Malt 14 No.2 Batch 1 That Boutique-y Whisky Company

Glenlivet Nàdurra Peated Whisky Cask Finish

Thanks to /u/kinohead for this sample. A long time ago I had this crazy idea: No, not to post a mystery advent calendar two months late. It’s Day #23, by the way. No, I wanted to review all of the different Glenlivet Nàdurra in one go. And then they came out super slowly. Also, there hasn’t been a port cask, either out of spite towards myself or… Continue reading Glenlivet Nàdurra Peated Whisky Cask Finish

Glen Elgin SMWS 85.45 “The lemon rocket ship”

Thanks to Tim W. for the sample. This is a mystery review, done back in December (I’m trying to catch up people, I’ve been sick twice these past three weeks and slipped on the ice recently and injured myself, it has super sucked) as part of an Advent Calendar of mysteries. We’re onto Day #22 of mysteries that were poured for me, one per day.… Continue reading Glen Elgin SMWS 85.45 “The lemon rocket ship”

Bunnahabhain SMWS 10.106 “Salted lemon sherbet”

Thanks to Tim W. for the sample. For the past few weeks, I’ve been intermittently posting my results of an Advent Calendar that my wife put together from my samples. It’s Day #21. All of the whiskies were done blind. All of them I should have known. The only hint I was given, eventually, is they were in the order of lower abv. to higher.… Continue reading Bunnahabhain SMWS 10.106 “Salted lemon sherbet”
