Four Heartwood Whiskies

Thanks to /u/Uncletobys for the samples. Heartwood is an independent bottler. However, to stop there in describing them doesn’t really do them justice. Most independent bottlers make their way into a distillery, buy a cask that the distillery is willing to sell (typically one that doesn’t fit with their release schedules or flavour profiles), they bottle it, and sell it out to us, the whisky lovers. Heartwood… Continue reading Four Heartwood Whiskies

Heartwood Triple Review (Epiphany of the Lakes, Any Port in a Storm [Winter Edition], Convict Resurrection)

Thanks to UncleTobys for these samples. I have a whisky bucket list. Or rather, as I’ve started calling them, my white whales. These are odd or interesting or quite tasty drams I want to try. For instance, Hibiki 30 is on that list. And the whisky made of bagels. And Bruichladdich Fishky. Not to mention trying Heartwood. Which if you’re following along, is something I’ve… Continue reading Heartwood Triple Review (Epiphany of the Lakes, Any Port in a Storm [Winter Edition], Convict Resurrection)

New World Projects Starward Limited Release

Thanks to UncleTobys for this sample. I watch a lot of procedural police dramas. It’s one of many horrible things I do to balance out the good I try and put out in the world. Because life is about balance. It’s also pretty rough when you’re not able to contact the person who swapped you anymore. Add onto that it’s from Australia, and you know… Continue reading New World Projects Starward Limited Release

Limeburners Single Malt American Barrel M197

The one on the right…. That says Limeburners…. Others I didn’t drink as I wasn’t at this and this was the only image of the bottle I could find Thanks to UncleTobys for this sample. Going to start this review a little bit different. So I reviewed this whisky blind. I’ve heard of Limeburners when people talk about Aussie whisky, but didn’t know much. This… Continue reading Limeburners Single Malt American Barrel M197

Heartwood Vat out of Hell

It’s that time of year. That Bi-polar, odd time of year. On the positive side, I have my birthday, friend’s birthdays, New Years, Xmas time, and all the food, fun, and drinks that come with it. On the negative side? Well it’s particularly busy. The amount of downers at my work doubles. Sometimes triples. Studies need to be faster, mistakes are made, and frankly, it’s… Continue reading Heartwood Vat out of Hell

Overeem Single Malt Whisky Port Cask Cask Strength

Wow /r/worldwhisky, it’s been quite awhile. Guess I was caught up in the fun of finishing my lone Bourbon and Scotch samples. Well, don’t worry, because I have a special dram all the way from the perceived most dangerous place on Earth, Australia. Thanks /u/UncleTobys for the dram! I’m surprised you were able to pour it between fighting off venomous creatures with a chainsaw. Anyway, enough… Continue reading Overeem Single Malt Whisky Port Cask Cask Strength

Sullivan’s Cove Bourbon Maturation Cask Strength Single Cask Malt Whisky

Been having a little bit extra this week, as I’m attempting to empty quite a few bottles for both a swap I setup and the upcoming, very exciting Mystery Dram mega swap. Very excited. Big Thanks to /u/UncleTobys for the international swap. And also a bitter, jealousy filled “Harumph” for your ability to find these tasty, tasty drams. “Hey TOModera, whatcha bitching about?” Well I’ll tell… Continue reading Sullivan’s Cove Bourbon Maturation Cask Strength Single Cask Malt Whisky

Sullivan’s Cove Port Duo (French Oak Cask, Port Maturation Cask Strength)

Continuing on my multi review kick… wait, is it a kick if this is the second? When does something go from “that thing I did once or twice” to a “kick”? So… continuing on what some might eventually call a “kick” or “just a phase” or “stop touching that in public”, here’s my second multireview, of which I have a special converging of themes for.… Continue reading Sullivan’s Cove Port Duo (French Oak Cask, Port Maturation Cask Strength)
