Thanks to /u/Saba007 for pouring me this dram. So I’ve been sick, and that’s sucked. Really sick. Haven’t had the energy to have many drams, save for special occasions, and haven’t had the energy to do much more than work/school. But you’re not here for that. You’re here because I’m well again and writing again. So let’s get to that. Rosebank is one of those distilleries you… Continue reading Rosebank 21 1990
Thanks to Tim W. for the sample. And thanks to /u/xreekinghavocx for the image. For those who missed it (and frankly that’s okay) each year, around my birthday, I review what samples I have from 1982. Because that’s when I was born. Otherwise, it’d be a weird coincidence. After taking a break due to social commitments I was told “not to be drunk at” and “again” or… Continue reading Cameronbridge SMWS G4.13 “Marvellous multifaceted”
Each year, during December, I break into any whiskies I have from 1982. Why? Because that’s when I ended up being born. This year there are four, and I’m quite excited because a) it’s getting harder to find the already hard-to-find whiskies from this year. If you’re wondering why, look up when distilleries started shutting down in the 80s (because the 80s sucked) Birthday Dram… Continue reading Carsebridge 34 1982 Signatory Cask Strength Collection
Recently there was a nice Toronto Whisky Society tasting in which a private whisky owner shared an interesting group of whiskies with a group of us. The line-up was, in a word, prettyfuckingamazingballs. And if that isn’t a word, I suggest Webster’s contact me, because if an emoji can make it in, the above should have a chance. Recently there’s been a few whisky fans… Continue reading Auchentoshan 23 Maltbarn
Thanks to a friend for sharing this dram! People who follow me on various social media type things, or at least read my reviews, know that there’s a special place in my heart for Lowlands. I can’t say why I love drinking flowers. Perhaps it’s due to something that happened to me as a child. Granted I don’t remember a brother-Rabbit-like situation that involved throwing… Continue reading Auchentoshan 22 The Good Spirits Co.
Each year I am brought out to The Feathers Pub, Toronto for my birthday. Some years multiple times. This year, just once, and that’s okay by me. Too much of a good thing and that. So typically I try to hit each region of Scotland. Except Campbeltown, because by the end I’m a little knackered. But what order to you go in? Well I’ve always said that… Continue reading Bladnoch 23 Rare Malts Selection [Feather’s Flight Review Set #18]
Thanks to /u/twiddleDD for the sample Introducing a new series that I’m calling “Scotch Malts, Wife’s Selection”, in which my wife goes through my backlog of SMWS samples that I haven’t reviewed yet, pours them blind, and then I review it blind. Girvan represents an interesting whisky for me. First off, it’s a single grain whisky. I’ve always enjoyed single grain whiskies because of the age statements required… Continue reading Girvan SMWS G7.10 “The Texan tea party”
