Toronto Whisky Society November 2016 tasting meet-up

The Toronto Whisky Society had another meetup this weekend, and had a number of fantastic bottles to sample from. We had 9 people out, including many of our contributors from here: Devoz, TOModera, Boyd86, Throzen, Xile_, DistillAsian, Kyle Butler, and Bryan Vanderkruk with special guest CharlesDobson from Alberta. We had a line-up of 9 bottles and sampled, dissected and discussed each one. The reviews will be … Continue reading Toronto Whisky Society November 2016 tasting meet-up

Parker’s Heritage Collection 9 Malt Whiskey

Thanks to /u/devoz for this sample. So contrary to the flack I’ve been handing out to some Bourbon’s lately, I do enjoy them. Really. Sure, I enjoy other whiskies more, but that’s neither here nor there. So I’ve decided I haven’t angered enough people, and thus have continued reviewing them. Yay me. Today we have the newest yearly special (unless you’re reading this after October 2016…… Continue reading Parker’s Heritage Collection 9 Malt Whiskey

Elijah Craig Barrel Proof Batch 6

Thanks to /u/Schockwaves for this dram. It’s been one of those downer months so far. No wins, lots of losses (and I’m not talking about my love life or basketball). So I was quite happy to sit down after weeks of few reviews and drink something that is typically labeled as “Hazmat” by the bourbon community, Elijah Craig Barrel Proof Batch #6. I have good luck… Continue reading Elijah Craig Barrel Proof Batch 6

9 Mystery Bourbon Tasting

Thanks to /u/devoz, /u/lasidar, /u/texacer, /u/jolarbear , /u/muaddib99, /u/boyd86, /u/neversafeforlife, /u/slackerdude, and honestly other people who I can’t remember your reddit handles but I can remember your real names and saying them out loud would break confidentiality. So we had our Canadian Mystery Bourbon Tasting (45% or higher Abv.). And let me just say, showing no cockiness at all, that I did pretty well. I… Continue reading 9 Mystery Bourbon Tasting

Bernheim Original Kentucky Straight Wheat [Mystery Review]

Yes, that’s right, it’s a Myster Sample. Quite the Myster. This one from /u/I_SAID_NO_GOLDFISH. I’m just teasing, of course. I’m always happy to have a mystery sample. And the fact he sent me one is pretty awesome. Feel like I should have sent one as well. Next swap. Probably in the new year. So, it’s a mystery sample. All I knew going in was the… Continue reading Bernheim Original Kentucky Straight Wheat [Mystery Review]

Parker’s Heritage Collection 8 (13 year Wheater)

Thanks to /u/cnbrown313[1] for a sample of this dram. Feel a little silly posting this one, to tell you the truth. Like I’m slow poke, telling everyone about last years Parker’s Heritage Collection 8 (13 year Wheater). That’s kinda dumb, when I get down to it. I’m being embarrassed about not having the newest and greatest malt. If only Sku could seem me now. He’d…… Continue reading Parker’s Heritage Collection 8 (13 year Wheater)
