Ledaig 19 1997 Carn Mor Celebration of the Cask

The past few years I’ve had more and more Ledaig. It’s pretty simple to see why: The whisky tastes good at a young age, isn’t from Islay but is peated, and my fellow whisky friends are big fans of it. Thus when I had the chance for a friend to bring back a bottle of Ledaig 19 1997 Carn Mor Celebration of the Cask from Alberta, I… Continue reading Ledaig 19 1997 Carn Mor Celebration of the Cask

Ledaig 11 2005 Signatory Cask Strength Collection (Cask 900157) [MYSTERY]

Thanks to /u/ForbiddenWaffle for this mystery pour. There’s something magical about whisky. And I don’t mean that “believing stickers make you smarter” thing that Gwyneth Paltrow is slinging or whatever religion is selling or Cardboard Crack: The Spending type Magic.

Thanks to Tim W. for the sample! And what do welcoming people with their own airport say to me when I call them while flying? That’s right: Hi! Land, Park! Thus that’s what I’m going to do for these reviews. It’s the last of the series, don’t worry, you don’t need to read that pun again. Takeout. The idea is you go to a restaurant,… Continue reading Highland Park SMWS 4.231 “Harbour-side takeaway”

Highland Park 18 1995 Gordon & MacPhail Reserve for La Maison du Whisky

Why’d I write this review series? Cause I got High(land Park). Puns are life. I have not yet been to France. I had the chance in grade 9. Looking back, I remember not wanting to go because none of my friends was going. I didn’t want to spend the money. And also, on some level, I believed that going to France, specifically Paris, at the… Continue reading Highland Park 18 1995 Gordon & MacPhail Reserve for La Maison du Whisky

Highland Park Thor

Thanks to /u/valhallacasino  for this sample. Why’d I write this review series? Cause I got High(land Park). I regret nothing. I personally hunt down tasters of different whisky groups. If someone releases a limited edition, four-parter, I’m a sucker for it. And it bugs me so much when I can’t try the others. Because while “limited” may mean anything from 80 bottles to 30,000, some of these… Continue reading Highland Park Thor
