Ardbeg Drum Committee Release

I complained a while ago that I wasn’t reviewing that many Ardbegs. Oh, and then I started reviewing Ardbegs because I’m a two-faced idiot who can’t see into the future or notice the stuff his whisky friends are buying. But this time I bought the samples. I had friends who were wondering about?Ardbeg Drum Committee Release, the stronger cask strength version of this year’s release.… Continue reading Ardbeg Drum Committee Release

Glenfiddich Wardhead 1997 Cooper’s Choice Port Cask Finish

Thanks to /u/devoz for pouring me this dram. “You ever had a Wardhead?” Yup, I was asked that. I stare back at people who ask me that, and I’m drawing a blank. Never heard of it. Then I’m told that Wardhead is Glenfiddich, teaspooned with an equally aged whisky. So it’s a blend. A vatting, if you will. Why? Because Glenfiddich doesn’t allow independent bottlers to release… Continue reading Glenfiddich Wardhead 1997 Cooper’s Choice Port Cask Finish

Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Barrel Strength – 17-5593

Thanks to?/u/devoz[+9]?for pouring me a sample of this. “Hey guys, I bought a bottle of Jack Daniel’s” It’s one of those moments we all dread. He’s gotten the crazy. We have to take him outside, and shoot him. I joke of course. We’d bring him to doctors to properly put down. Or keep making fun of him. That helps one’s mental health, right? Alright, joking… Continue reading Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Barrel Strength – 17-5593

Clynelish 8 2008 Signatory Vintage Collection – Cask Strength

A few months ago the Toronto Whisky Society had a tasting. I originally was the person walking through each of the whiskies and having a fun time. Then I got sick, and then I started class, and there may have been a year-end and perhaps an audit in there and probably a 4-hour exam. But you really don’t give a shit about that. You want… Continue reading Clynelish 8 2008 Signatory Vintage Collection – Cask Strength

Bowmore 26 French Oak Barrique – The Vintner’s Trilogy

Thanks to /u/xile_ for the sample. I slag off Bowmore a lot. Starting with positivity today. I’m just shitting rainbows up in here. Now don’t get me wrong. I won’t mock anyone for enjoying Bowmore. And I’ve certainly had some fun, interesting times with Bowmore. That all said, I should probably note that those fun times, those “I’m going out of my way” times were always cask… Continue reading Bowmore 26 French Oak Barrique – The Vintner’s Trilogy

Bruichladdich Port Charlotte Valinch – Cask Exploration 19 Cuan Dorcha

Thanks to /u/lol_oilers for sharing this dram If you’re ever lucky enough to visit Islay and make your way to Bruichladdich, then you’ll come across a group of distillery exclusive Valinch bottlings. Some of them will be named after the hard workers, some will by given Gaelic names that most of us will butcher, and all will be pricey. Usually for a good reason. I’ve never been… Continue reading Bruichladdich Port Charlotte Valinch – Cask Exploration 19 Cuan Dorcha
