Kilchoman 10 2007 KWM Single Cask

I recently did a whole bunch of Kilchoman reviews and was happy they were done. Not in an “I hate that distillery” way, but in a “yay, I’ve reviewed a lot, and therefore accomplished something” way. As part of wrapping it up, I was privileged enough to try two picks from Kensington Wine Market. Originally it was going to be three picks. There was sadly… Continue reading Kilchoman 10 2007 KWM Single Cask

Thanks to /u/Davyj0ne5  for this dram. I recently figured out I had a couple Glengoyne samples around. So I finally got around to trying Glengoyne 12 for the last review.

Instead of using ex-bourbon casks, like… Continue reading Glengoyne 18

Glengoyne 12

Thanks to /u/Davyj0ne5  for this dram So here’s an issue. Each year, there are standard whiskies that come out. And the same ones come out time and time, which makes sense. And then independent releases changeup. So as a whisky reviewer you end up starting with the standard, OB releases. Which is fine. It’s a good place to start. It’s easier to do. It’s less expensive. And… Continue reading Glengoyne 12

Karuizawa 10 1996 Single Cask – Sample Bottle

Thanks to /u/walking_spanish for the sample. If you’re like me, Karuizawa is that word you know you can’t pronounce correctly (‘karo-zau-wa’) that means “whisky I can’t possibly afford a bottle of”. But why? Well, Japanese whisky is one of those things we need to discuss. Because there’s a lot of misinformation on. First up, the main elephant in the room: All Japanese whiskies are pure gold that… Continue reading Karuizawa 10 1996 Single Cask – Sample Bottle
