Glen Moray 24 Duncan Taylor Dimensions

Thanks to?@scotchguy.to?for sharing a dram of this with me. So I’m at a whisky tasting. One where I have to be picky, because I have class the next morning, but I’m also drinking with a bunch of whisky nerds. I choose a Glen Moray. Specifically?Glen Moray 24 Duncan Taylor Dimensions. Others are less enthused about it. You see, as a group we’ve had an embarrassment… Continue reading Glen Moray 24 Duncan Taylor Dimensions

Glen Moray SMWS 35.204 “A squirrel’s dream”

Thanks to /u/xreekinghavocx for pouring me a dram of this whisky. The best part about drinking Glen Moray is I keep getting drunker, and they keep coming out. Wait, that doesn’t have the same horrible connotation that the original did. Not to mention I’m pretty sure that I’m not half as pretty as McConaughey to pull off the implied statutory rape, so maybe it’s better I don’t… Continue reading Glen Moray SMWS 35.204 “A squirrel’s dream”

Glen Moray Elgin Classic Chardonnay Cask

Thanks to /u/throwboats for pouring me this sample. I walk into my large, 360 degree At TOModera review industries, made by the literal 10s of dollars I’ve made from reviews. As I look down from the 100th floor, my meek assistant walks in with a concerned look on her face. “Excuse me, your lord and saviour of whisky, we have a concern.” I smile as she calls… Continue reading Glen Moray Elgin Classic Chardonnay Cask

Glen Moray SMWS 35.145 “Lost in the dessert”

This is a continuation of my ongoing series that I’m calling “Scotch Malts, Wife’s Selection”, in which my wife goes through my backlog of SMWS (Scotch Malt Whisky Society) samples that I haven’t reviewed yet, pours them blind, and then I review it blind. People who meet me have a few different reactions. First off they stare at my head, as us bald men need to… Continue reading Glen Moray SMWS 35.145 “Lost in the dessert”

Glen Moray SMWS 35.165 “Variety – the spice of life”

This is a continuation of my ongoing series that I’m calling “Scotch Malts, Wife’s Selection”, in which my wife goes through my backlog of SMWS (Scotch Malt Whisky Society) samples that I haven’t reviewed yet, pours them blind, and then I review it blind. It’s a weird situation when you look back on the previous year, and the whisky that surprised you the most, of which… Continue reading Glen Moray SMWS 35.165 “Variety – the spice of life”

Glen Moray SMWS 35.138 “Miss American Pie” & SMWS 35.142 “Sweet treats and forbidden pleasures”

Thanks to /u/boyd86 and /u/lasidar for these samples. I’m very proud to be part of the whisky group, both the official one (The Toronto Whisky Society) and as the informal one (the drunk buggers who have accepting wives). Why? Because it’s not a big circlejerk. Oh, there’s consensus. A lot of us are peat heads, for example. However there are also people who aren’t. Some of us… Continue reading Glen Moray SMWS 35.138 “Miss American Pie” & SMWS 35.142 “Sweet treats and forbidden pleasures”

Glen Moray 1988 Jack Wieber Locomotive Breath

The other evening I was fortunate enough to sit down with Igor from Heads & Tails with /u/devoz and /u/muaddib99. They probably posted theirs right away, and I have a backlog. The act of being able to be surprised is an odd one. People watch horror movies, believe in fanciful things, and overall will be ignorant to be surprised. It’s part of the human condition. It’s… Continue reading Glen Moray 1988 Jack Wieber Locomotive Breath

Glen Moray SMWS 35.108 “A Feast of Flavours”

(Thanks again to /u/Scotch_Fanatic for these drams, he’s a fine gent) I’m sure I’ve had a Glen Moray before, I say to myself, woken up in the morning as if I had just realized I was staying at a murder house. As I search though reviews upon reviews, screaming for a lost love than never was, telling a bird to fuck off from my window, I… Continue reading Glen Moray SMWS 35.108 “A Feast of Flavours”
