Glenmorangie Allta – Exploring Wild Yeast

Lately I’ve been enjoying wild ales. For those not in the know, a wild ale is a beer that has used yeast or bacteria in addition to Saccharomyces cerevisiae for fermentation. It’s recently caught on in the US, with Lambics using the method for centuries now. So, when I was invited to try Glenmorangie’s newest release, which used their own strain of wild yeast, I … Continue reading Glenmorangie Allta – Exploring Wild Yeast

Glenmorangie Bacalta

Thanks to /u/ScotchChick for pouring me a sample of this dram. I’ll be honest, as I typically am: For a few years, I skipped over the Glenmorangie special releases. Yes, I’ve reviewed a few of them. Like today’s, Glenmorangie Bacalta, not around the time they came out. Why? Well, there’re a few reasons. The first is the easiest: Ealanta. A cracker dram if I ever had one. And… Continue reading Glenmorangie Bacalta

Introducing Glenmorangie Spios

Glenmorangie is proud to announce their newest Private Edition release, the ninth in a long line of annually released limited edition malts. Each edition explores new innovations and how they affect whisky. However before we get into the details of this new malt, first we should go back. Back to 1949. Why? Because Glenmorangie was the first Scotch malt maker to release a whisky that … Continue reading Introducing Glenmorangie Spios

Reviews: Glenmorangie Original, Lasanta, Nectar D’Or and Quinta Ruban

Glenmorangie 10 is one of the first bottles I ever bought when I was first getting into scotch. I purchased a gift set that had a 750ml bottle of original plus 3 minis of the 12-year expressions. Those have been sitting around for about 3.5 years now and i’m finally getting to them. When I first reviewed Glenmo10 way back in 2013, i scored it … Continue reading Reviews: Glenmorangie Original, Lasanta, Nectar D’Or and Quinta Ruban

Glenmorangie Tusail [Pub L’Isle Noire Flight Review Set #2]

? Went back to L’Île Noire Pub because I was in Montreal and it’s a great pub and they have a ton of whisky and gin. Great place, good prices, good staff. But why choose a Highland whisky? I mean, it’s not a bad region, per say. It’s just not usually my thing. My jive is off with it. I am not a Highlander. If… Continue reading Glenmorangie Tusail [Pub L’Isle Noire Flight Review Set #2]

Toronto Whisky Society meetup at Devoz’s house, Feb 2016

Toronto Whisky Society got together at Devoz’s house for a few drams…though the word ‘few’ is kind of a lie. boyd86 kinohead devoz and I were drinking all night and tomodera dropped by for some swaps too. here are the drams I tasted and some comments on each, verbatim from my hand-written notes that night, so you can probably tell which ones were later in the evening! Glenmorangie … Continue reading Toronto Whisky Society meetup at Devoz’s house, Feb 2016

Glenmorangie Cluster Fuck Reviews [Companta, 18, Signet, Quinta Ruban, Lasanta, Astar]

Thanks to /u/devoz, /u/lasidar, /u/scotch_fanatic, and /u/allumina for samples. And me for buying others. Me is pretty great. Can’t name things though. So based on some of my last multi-reviews, I can’t call this a vertical. It’s vertical-ish, but not really a vertical. Also isn’t a horizontal either. Diagnonal sounds dumb. No, this is a Cluster Fuck (patent pending) of reviews. What’s a Cluster Fuck? Well… Continue reading Glenmorangie Cluster Fuck Reviews [Companta, 18, Signet, Quinta Ruban, Lasanta, Astar]

Glenmorangie 21 1981/2002 Sauternes Finish [Feather’s Flight Review Set #8]

Is it bender time again? No it isn’t. Silly person. I’m not going out to the UK for at least a few months. So it’s not bender time. It’s my Birthday time! And all I ever ask for is to go out to The Feathers Pub and have drams. This year I asked for recommendations, and followed them quite well. I know, I’m surprised too. I… Continue reading Glenmorangie 21 1981/2002 Sauternes Finish [Feather’s Flight Review Set #8]

Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban

Special thanks to /u/EMoneySC2 for the excellent swap we did 3 months ago. This drams for you (as you supplied me with it). Went up north this past weekend, and was surrounded by a group of people all enjoying whisky (and rum, but that’s another subreddit). Specifically whiskies I brought to share. Because seriously, sharing whisky is pretty sweet. Up first was time to share my… Continue reading Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban
