Event Recap: 2018 Vintages Tasting

This past weekend, we had a chance to sample some fantastic independently bottled whiskies from a private collection. Like last year’s event, the tasting was led by Igor of Heads & Tails, who regaled us with tales of drinking with Malt Maniacs, master distillers and whisky royalty, while providing insight into the bottles we were enjoying. This year’s theme was ‘whisky with a twist’ and … Continue reading Event Recap: 2018 Vintages Tasting

Auchentoshan 22 The Good Spirits Co.

Thanks to a friend for sharing this dram! People who follow me on various social media type things, or at least read my reviews, know that there’s a special place in my heart for Lowlands. I can’t say why I love drinking flowers. Perhaps it’s due to something that happened to me as a child. Granted I don’t remember a brother-Rabbit-like situation that involved throwing… Continue reading Auchentoshan 22 The Good Spirits Co.

Mystery M3 (The Smoked Series)

Thanks to /u/devoz and /u/xile_ for this sample Quick recap, if you haven’t read the last 2 reviews (Skip to the Bold part that says “START HERE” otherwise). Recently I made a point of stating that, if given an Arran, I’d identify the profile. This started both devoz and xile_ thinking, which is never good for me. You see, recently devoz acquired a smoke gun. From what little I… Continue reading Mystery M3 (The Smoked Series)

Auchentoshan New Malt Order Cocktail Event (Cocktail Recipes included!)

As the Scotch boom grows, so does the idea that cocktails can be made with Scotch. No longer are people sneering at the idea of mixing your single malt, and as someone who has had some, let’s say extra bottles, it can actually be quite fun. Auchentoshan has a yearly event named the New Malt Order. It takes place in Germany, Sweden, the US, Canada, … Continue reading Auchentoshan New Malt Order Cocktail Event (Cocktail Recipes included!)

Auchentoshan 25 1978 [Feather’s Flight Review Set #17]

Went to The Feathers Pub for my belated birthday. In my family, we don’t really love you if we celebrate your birthday on the day you were born. It’s against the rules. Also December is busy as fuck. With my father paying and my cousins nicely coming along, we ate English food (that I love) and I drank (which I’m mostly fond of). These are… Continue reading Auchentoshan 25 1978 [Feather’s Flight Review Set #17]

Auchentoshan SMWS 5.42 “Bathed in a baker’s shop”

See a trend yet in my posting? I give you a couple more to figure it out. A few months ago I was on the Internet, and for once, not playing video games, watching videos, pleasuring myself, or all three. No, instead I was chatting with other Whisky nerds. And one of said whisky nerds mentioned how he needed to try a proper Lowland. Being… Continue reading Auchentoshan SMWS 5.42 “Bathed in a baker’s shop”

Auchentoshan 11 Hepburn’s Choice 2001 [Pub L’Isle Noire Flight Review Set #1]

So this will be a bit different. Kinda. Every so often I enter into a pub that I enjoy so much that I make a flight out of it. There was the Dam Pub, there’s the Village Idiot Pub, and probably others I”m forgetting about. Oh, yeah, there’s the Feather’s ones I do all the time. Those as well, because I love it there. Well… Continue reading Auchentoshan 11 Hepburn’s Choice 2001 [Pub L’Isle Noire Flight Review Set #1]

Auchentoshan 14 Cadenheads Small Batch

Thanks to /u/PeatReeks for this sample. Apologies to myannoyingopinions.com for stealing your image. I like Lowlands. There aren’t many Lowlands. I’ve had a lot from Auchentoshan. Yup, that sums up a lot of my reviews for Lowland whiskies. Let’s try something different. Maybe talk about being behind on reviews? No, wait I’ve played that card too many times. Pop Culture references? Been awhile since I’ve… Continue reading Auchentoshan 14 Cadenheads Small Batch
