Clynelish 8 2008 Signatory Vintage Collection – Cask Strength

A few months ago the Toronto Whisky Society had a tasting. I originally was the person walking through each of the whiskies and having a fun time. Then I got sick, and then I started class, and there may have been a year-end and perhaps an audit in there and probably a 4-hour exam. But you really don’t give a shit about that. You want… Continue reading Clynelish 8 2008 Signatory Vintage Collection – Cask Strength

Fettercairn 28 1988 Signatory Spec’s Pick

Readers of my reviews don’t just have constant ED (especially the women) and feelings of illness. They also notice things on a regular basis. Like how typically I’m the one who, at tastings like the one I was at, am having a mystery dram handed to me. Not so this time gentle viewer! No, this time the turntables have, in fact, turned. And as such,… Continue reading Fettercairn 28 1988 Signatory Spec’s Pick

Edradour 10 2007 SFTC Burgundy Cask Matured

This year for my birthday my wife wanted to get me something interesting. So she picked out a Ballechin from a store that had no reviews. The store ended up selling us the incorrect bottle. By the time it came in, turns out that reviews had popped up. And the difference in score was quite substantial. To the positive side. Also the price was better… Continue reading Edradour 10 2007 SFTC Burgundy Cask Matured

Clynelish 21 1995 Signatory The Whisky Exchange

Thanks to /u/Saba007 for this sample. When it comes to Clynelish, there are two types of people: Those that enjoy them in ex-sherry casks, and those of you who I assume hunt down neighbourhood pets in order to drink their blood. I kid of course. There are people who love an ex-bourbon Clynelish. I have no issue with them. If anything, they are buying and enjoying whisky… Continue reading Clynelish 21 1995 Signatory The Whisky Exchange

Balblair 24 1993 Gordon & MacPhail Cask Strength

Thanks to /u/Throzen[ for pouring this one for me. Balblair 24 1993 Gordon & MacPhail Cask Strength. Right off the bat, you’re noticing it. This is what you listen for when buying independent bottles. Balblair. I like it, I’ve enjoyed versions of it that are original bottlings, so I assume it’ll be good. 24-years-old? Yeah, that’s very nice. As someone who usually has whiskies between 8 and… Continue reading Balblair 24 1993 Gordon & MacPhail Cask Strength

Thanks to @scotchguy.to for this sample So I’m at this tasting still. And I’m getting to the last drams I can have before I gotta go. So I ask for the last whisky of the night.

And for those of you who missed the last post, I had just drunk a sherried Glenturret of… Continue reading Glenturret 11 1993 Gordon & MacPhail The MacPhail’s Collection

Glenturret 10 2005 Adelphi [Mystery]

Thanks to /u/throzen for pouring me this dram. Not just that. You see, this was poured as a mystery. A mystery that would confound each and every person at the tasting. Now if you haven’t been following my previous reviews, you’ll not know that I’m utter crap at guessing mysteries. I get mixed up, I don’t remember distillery profiles, and I’m not good at it. At the… Continue reading Glenturret 10 2005 Adelphi [Mystery]
