Forty Creek Limited Editions: Port Wood, Three Grain Harmony & Founder’s Reserve

For #WorldWhiskyDay, I’m doing a trio of Forty Creek limited edition releases. Hard to believe I last reviewed a forty creek whisky back in my 20th review here, and now I’m at over 100. my opinions on Forty Creek have definitely changed over the years, going from hardcore fanboy to disappointment in the similarity of many releases, to now being a skeptic of their future … Continue reading Forty Creek Limited Editions: Port Wood, Three Grain Harmony & Founder’s Reserve

Forty Creek Deconstruction Tasting & Reviews

This post is a throwback to Forty Creek’s Whisky Weekend in 2014. I had long enjoyed Forty Creek as the better alternative to the Canadian whisky standards of Crown and CC. I’d bought a bunch of the limited editions in the past and figured why not check out the distillery and get one of the limited edition bottlings in person plus a signature? So I  pre-ordered … Continue reading Forty Creek Deconstruction Tasting & Reviews

Forty Creek Port Wood Reserve 2012

So here we are, the last of my “monument” reviews for a little while. This is /r/worldwhisky review #60. No major one until I hit whisky network review #300. After this, I’ll be focusing on Bourbon and Cambeltons for awhile. And of course it’s Canadian. Because it should be, because… reasons? I don’t know, I just didn’t think I had done enough Canucks in the last… Continue reading Forty Creek Port Wood Reserve 2012

Forty Creek Confederation Oak Reserve

Today is my countries 147th birthday. Happy Canada Day folks. At least, I’m assuming you’re folksy. None the less, other than taking a 5 day holiday (which has been pretty calm and filled with booze and chocolate), I thought I’d do something special and review some Canadian whisky I have sitting about. Thanks to /u/muaddib99 for swapping me some of this one. I’m a fan of… Continue reading Forty Creek Confederation Oak Reserve

Forty Creek John’s Private Cask No. 1 [The Dam Pub Flight Review Set #1]

Back with another review, this one also from The Dam Pub. You need to go there, because not only is the food good, the ambiance distinctly Celtic, but there are over 700 whiskies available. And if that doesn’t get you there, then the Bread Pudding or the Chocolate Pate will. Or the monthly whisky club. But enough about giving them free time in my reviews.… Continue reading Forty Creek John’s Private Cask No. 1 [The Dam Pub Flight Review Set #1]

Forty Creek Small Batch Reserve [The Dam Pub Flight Review Set #1]

Hey! You! Yes, you! The person reading these words, thinking it’s a review! Yes, it’s a review, but first, if you want to go to a pub with over 700 whiskies, then it’s time to visit The Dam Pub . Please come to Ontario, the area is amazing. I walked in treetops and flew down zip lines at 55mph. And then I had some drams. Glad… Continue reading Forty Creek Small Batch Reserve [The Dam Pub Flight Review Set #1]

Forty Creek Copper Pot Reserve

My continuing drive to try and review all of the Forty Creek whiskies (save for the Whisky cream) continues with Forty Creek Copper Pot Reserve. They just keep making some great stuff, bucking a lot of unpleasing Canuck whisky trends, and generally are nice people(Ed. Note: I don’t think you can say that as you don’t know for sure). That being said, given that Heart… Continue reading Forty Creek Copper Pot Reserve
