Ledaig in 4 Parts [1,500th REVIEW]

Thanks to /u/xile_ and /u/devoz for giving me these samples. Somehow, without falling over and turning into a puddle of alcohol, I’ve hit 1,500 whisky reviews. It’s an odd moment. I started out with the mentality that people only read my reviews because they were funny, I mentioned pop culture moments, and I made dick jokes. Especially the dick jokes. If I learned anything from Shakespeare, it’s that the… Continue reading Ledaig in 4 Parts [1,500th REVIEW]

Mystery Scotch Review #1 from /u/devoz [Scotch review #750]

Thank you to /u/devoz for a random mystery for this milestone dram. This is the first of many celebratory drams that I am having for my 750th Scotch reviews. Turns out I’ve had quite a few milestones so I have to stretch these out. Also I have some high end drams to drink. I know, it’s a rough life. You all are happy I live with it.… Continue reading Mystery Scotch Review #1 from /u/devoz [Scotch review #750]

Bryan’s Solera Reviews: Unpeated and Peated Bottles

These reviews were my 400th and 401st whisky reviews on Reddit. Crazy to think about it. To celebrate that milestone I decided to review a couple bottles that have been with me for a while through my whisky journey: my 2 solera bottles. I started these in May 2014, so some of the juice in there has been marrying for nearly 3 years. My life … Continue reading Bryan’s Solera Reviews: Unpeated and Peated Bottles

Laphroaig 25 (2011) [900th Review]

Thanks to /u/xile_ for the sample. So I made a big deal out of hitting 800 reviews recently. And by recently, I mean 100 reviews ago. I feel a little sheepish this being my 900th review. Didn’t mean to turn them around so quickly. Guess I had a rough couple of months. Especially after some great people in the Toronto Whisky Community helped make that one… Continue reading Laphroaig 25 (2011) [900th Review]

Bruichladdich Octomore 500th Scotch Review (01.1, 06.1, 06.2, 06.3, Discovery, 07.1, 07.2, 07.3, 07.4)

Thanks to /u/devoz, /u/distillasian, /u/neversafeforlife, /u/xile_, and /u/whiskylads for the swaps. Oh, and this is my 500th Scotch review. So I’ll take my crown please. A lot of people here have been in the situation that Bruichladdich must have been prior to releasing Octomore. There they are, making a living on Islay, surrounded by history and distilleries that make the most peated whisky out there.… Continue reading Bruichladdich Octomore 500th Scotch Review (01.1, 06.1, 06.2, 06.3, Discovery, 07.1, 07.2, 07.3, 07.4)

Glendronach 43 Year Old Single Cask (1971, #2920) [800th Whisky Review]

First off, yes. This is my 800th review on the whisky network. I’m now about 1% of the database. Part of it. A good chunk, at least. Second, thank you to /u/xile_ for this sample. I owe you, and thanks for giving me a milestone worthy dram to review. It’s kinda funny too, because a few days after reviewing this I ended up with a bad… Continue reading Glendronach 43 Year Old Single Cask (1971, #2920) [800th Whisky Review]
