Glen Scotia 14 1992 Gordon & MacPhail Cask Strength

Today is brought to you by the number 7. As in Advent Day #7. Yes, I’m keeping up with this, popular or not. I went through it, now you do too. It’s like you’re drinking it, without the taste or intoxication or comradery or really anything fun. But hey, you get to read what I wrote! That’s… something. Right? Let’s get to the whisky before… Continue reading Glen Scotia 14 1992 Gordon & MacPhail Cask Strength

Springbank 16 Ultimate Distillers Cask 450

Thanks to the Toronto Whisky Society for hosting this event, and to /u/devoz for picking out the lineup. So I’m the one who gets to walk through each of these whiskies. So while researching them there were great websites to read up and walk through. I was able to say a bit about the distillery, and if you’re looking for information on Springbank, I welcome you to that rabbit… Continue reading Springbank 16 Ultimate Distillers Cask 450

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
