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)

Ledaig 19 1997 Carn Mor Celebration of the Cask

The past few years I’ve had more and more Ledaig. It’s pretty simple to see why: The whisky tastes good at a young age, isn’t from Islay but is peated, and my fellow whisky friends are big fans of it. Thus when I had the chance for a friend to bring back a bottle of Ledaig 19 1997 Carn Mor Celebration of the Cask from Alberta, I… Continue reading Ledaig 19 1997 Carn Mor Celebration of the Cask

Glenrothes-Glenlivet 20 1997 Cadenhead’s Small Batch

Thanks to /u/devoz for pouring me a dram. Yup, Glenrothes independent bottling again. I know, I’m getting pretty repetitive, but frankly I really do enjoy independent bottling Glenrothes, and think they are one of my current cask strength picks. So what’s new about Glenrothes-Glenlivet 20 1997 Cadenhead’s Small Batch? Well first off we see that, as usual, Cadenhead adding in the now not used addition of -Glenlivet that… Continue reading Glenrothes-Glenlivet 20 1997 Cadenhead’s Small Batch

Lohin McKinnon Wine Barrel & Chocolate Malt & Peated Malt

Thank you to the Toronto Whisky Society and Lohin McKinnon for giving me the chance to try out these offerings. All of the below are my own thoughts, opinions, and have not been influenced by the dump truck filled with money that I’m sure is coming my way. Oh, there isn’t one of them? I guess I’ll just have to keep on being a reviewer… Continue reading Lohin McKinnon Wine Barrel & Chocolate Malt & Peated Malt

Glen Moray SMWS 35.204 “A squirrel’s dream”

Thanks to /u/xreekinghavocx for pouring me a dram of this whisky. The best part about drinking Glen Moray is I keep getting drunker, and they keep coming out. Wait, that doesn’t have the same horrible connotation that the original did. Not to mention I’m pretty sure that I’m not half as pretty as McConaughey to pull off the implied statutory rape, so maybe it’s better I don’t… Continue reading Glen Moray SMWS 35.204 “A squirrel’s dream”
