Edradour Ballechin 10 & Edradour Ballechin Discovery Series #7

Thanks to /u/RaunchyJowls & /u/Orehnmadgib for pouring me these samples. I recently reviewed quite a few Edradour. I felt I hadn’t properly reviewed the tiny distillery, so I got some friends to pour some samples for me. And then some more samples. And then maybe I reviewed too many Edradours (if there is such a thing). So I took a break, had some other distilleries. You know, share the… Continue reading Edradour Ballechin 10 & Edradour Ballechin Discovery Series #7

Distillery Spotlight: Central City’s Lohin McKinnon Single Malts

Central City Brewing has been a stalwart in the craft brewing scene in BC since 2003 with their Red Racer line, and entered the distilling game in 2013. Brewmaster Gary Lohin and Head Distiller Stuart McKinnon used their collective expertise to develop an innovative line-up of Lohin McKinnon single malts. The regular Single Malt did very well in our inaugural Great Canadian Whisky Tasting in 2017, as did their … Continue reading Distillery Spotlight: Central City’s Lohin McKinnon Single Malts

Kilkerran WIP 7 Sherry Wood & Kilkerran WIP 7 Bourbon Wood Cask Strength

Thanks to /u/ScotchChick and /u/boyd86 for pouring these whiskies for me. Kilkerran, from the Glengyle distillery. Why not call it Glenglye? Because there was another Glengyle in Campbeltown, and we’re trying to keep things all tickity-boo and working, alright? Otherwise we’d be keeping things confusing. Kilkerran is the new kid in class. The interesting one who has a clean slate. Any flaws they have been viewed as interesting. Do… Continue reading Kilkerran WIP 7 Sherry Wood & Kilkerran WIP 7 Bourbon Wood Cask Strength

Longrow 9 2007 Sauternes & Longrow 15 2001 Chardonnay/Bourbon Single Cask

Thanks /u/Orehnmadgib for pouring these for me. Continuing on with a different type of review series, I had a bunch of Campbeltown samples, felt like I wanted to review more of them, and put two and two together and didn’t end up with three. Which is for the best, what with working with numbers every day. Longrow is the big peat energy distillery of Campbeltown at the… Continue reading Longrow 9 2007 Sauternes & Longrow 15 2001 Chardonnay/Bourbon Single Cask

Hazelburn 13 2003 Oloroso & Hazelburn 9 Sauternes Single Cask

Thanks /u/Orehnmadgib for pouring these for me. While going through my samples I realized that I had quite a few Campbeltown samples. And that I hadn’t drunk Campbeltown in awhile. I should fix that. Up first we have Hazelburn. Of the few distilleries in the once mighty Campbeltown region, Hazelburn goes under the radar, at least in my experience. You have Springbank, the MVP, their peated malt,… Continue reading Hazelburn 13 2003 Oloroso & Hazelburn 9 Sauternes Single Cask

Auchroisk 24 1994 Signatory Cask Strength

Thanks to /u/georgejessel for the sample. Auchroisk 24 1994 Signatory Cask Strength. Never heard of it? Don’t worry, neither had I. However, I have this friend who really, really wants me to try it. It comes up on a regular basis. Not in an annoying way at all. That’s not sarcasm. Stop reading all of this as sarcasm. Auchroisk, or the Singleton of Auchroisk if you’re nasty,… Continue reading Auchroisk 24 1994 Signatory Cask Strength

Bruichladdich Port Charlotte PC6 Cuairt-Beatha

If you’ve been following, we ended up having drams at /u/xile_ place. After a lengthy break, due to ending with a very peated dram, we had dinner, had some coffee, cleared up our tongues, and then decided to have one more. None of us drove. We had a DD. Because we’re not idiots. I completely missed out on large releases of Bruichladdich. Why? Because I didn’t work… Continue reading Bruichladdich Port Charlotte PC6 Cuairt-Beatha
