Brora 29 1971 Old Malt Cask Douglas Laing [Feather’s Flight Review Set #18]

Each year I am brought out to The Feathers Pub, Toronto for my birthday. Some years multiple times. This year, just once, and that’s okay by me. Too much of a good thing and that. When selecting a Highland, I have to say that, assuming money is not a concern, my typical question is: What Brora do they have? Here again we see a distillery that is… Continue reading Brora 29 1971 Old Malt Cask Douglas Laing [Feather’s Flight Review Set #18]

Toronto Whisky Society’s Whiskies of the Year 2017

2017 was a great year for the Toronto Whisky Society (TWS), between hosting a number of wonderful tastings, visiting distilleries, reviewing whiskies, and of course all the great social events with members.

Brora 1982 Gordon & MacPhail Connoisseur’s Choice [Feather’s Flight Review Set #17]

Went to The Feathers Pub for my belated birthday. And aimed to have some high end drams before they all went away and the LCBO hunts down anyone who even grows barley. Because that’s probably their next step. Until 1967, the Brora distillery was named Clynelish. Then it changed names, and started making heavily peated whisky to fill in issues with Islay not getting their… Continue reading Brora 1982 Gordon & MacPhail Connoisseur’s Choice [Feather’s Flight Review Set #17]

Brora 30 Sherry Single Barrel Chieftain’s K&L Exclusive

Very big thanks to /u/Marcovici for this sought after dram. Speaking of which, fucking hell I wish we had K&L Wine Merchants in Ontario. They seem to get some cool shit. And they are wine merchants, so my wife would always be like “Hey, order whisky to go with my wine” and shit. Then we’d have crazy sex. Well, a guy can dram… uh, I mean… Continue reading Brora 30 Sherry Single Barrel Chieftain’s K&L Exclusive

Brora 20 1975 Rare Malts [Feather’s Flight Review Set #13]

My birthdays have become something of a fun legend. And by fun legend, I more so mean everyone coming downtown, all the way, just to watch me do whisky reviews. It’s a tad narcissistic, to say the least. It’s at The Feather’s Pub , so that helps. The foods good. Have the Welsh Rarebit. Maybe just not with whisky. But that’s a later story. Before said… Continue reading Brora 20 1975 Rare Malts [Feather’s Flight Review Set #13]
