Sagamore Rye Tasting Event

COVID sure did change a lot about whisky tastings in 2020, but it didn’t slow them down! In September we managed to work with Sagamore Spirit on a tasting event that included a virtual distillery tour, a history of Maryland Rye, a fantastic giveaway and if course 4 very neat expressions of their Maryland style rye: Sagamore Straight Rye Sagamore Double Oak Rye Sagamore Cask … Continue reading Sagamore Rye Tasting Event

[Review] Knockdhu 9 Year 2010 Cadenhead’s Small Batch

Going back to an old review I did when this bottling hit the Alberta market back in April.

[Review] Glen Scotia 8 Year Old (1980s-1990s Bottling)

So it’s coming closer and closer to a year since I’ve been to Campbeltown. And while most would crave to venture back to Springbank and Glengyle and Cadenhead’s, I really yearn to go back to Glen Scotia again because for what it is it was a great distillery experience with some very underrated whisky, especially the unpeated stuff. So with that being said, it’s time … Continue reading [Review] Glen Scotia 8 Year Old (1980s-1990s Bottling)
