Kilkerran WIP 7 Sherry Wood & Kilkerran WIP 7 Bourbon Wood Cask Strength

Thanks to /u/ScotchChick and /u/boyd86 for pouring these whiskies for me. Kilkerran, from the Glengyle distillery. Why not call it Glenglye? Because there was another Glengyle in Campbeltown, and we’re trying to keep things all tickity-boo and working, alright? Otherwise we’d be keeping things confusing. Kilkerran is the new kid in class. The interesting one who has a clean slate. Any flaws they have been viewed as interesting. Do… Continue reading Kilkerran WIP 7 Sherry Wood & Kilkerran WIP 7 Bourbon Wood Cask Strength

Longrow 9 2007 Sauternes & Longrow 15 2001 Chardonnay/Bourbon Single Cask

Thanks /u/Orehnmadgib for pouring these for me. Continuing on with a different type of review series, I had a bunch of Campbeltown samples, felt like I wanted to review more of them, and put two and two together and didn’t end up with three. Which is for the best, what with working with numbers every day. Longrow is the big peat energy distillery of Campbeltown at the… Continue reading Longrow 9 2007 Sauternes & Longrow 15 2001 Chardonnay/Bourbon Single Cask

Hazelburn 13 2003 Oloroso & Hazelburn 9 Sauternes Single Cask

Thanks /u/Orehnmadgib for pouring these for me. While going through my samples I realized that I had quite a few Campbeltown samples. And that I hadn’t drunk Campbeltown in awhile. I should fix that. Up first we have Hazelburn. Of the few distilleries in the once mighty Campbeltown region, Hazelburn goes under the radar, at least in my experience. You have Springbank, the MVP, their peated malt,… Continue reading Hazelburn 13 2003 Oloroso & Hazelburn 9 Sauternes Single Cask

Edradour 14 Oloroso Finish & Edradour 16 Bordeaux Finish {Specs Liquor Store Pick}

Now to conclude my current ongoing need to finish off whiskies that all come from the same distillery, it’s time for the smallest (in size, not in ferocity) distillery in Scotland, Edradour. So remember: As one Edradour closes, another one opens. Don’t worry, I’ll be doing it again. Thanks to /u/ScotchChick for these samples. Specs Liquor has 100 locations across Texas, reminding me again how big Texas… Continue reading Edradour 14 Oloroso Finish & Edradour 16 Bordeaux Finish {Specs Liquor Store Pick}

Three Edradour SFTC Offerings

Now to continue my ongoing need to finish off whiskies that all come from the same distillery, it’s time for the smallest (in size, not in ferocity) distillery in Scotland, Edradour. So remember: As one Edradour closes, another one opens. I’ve mentioned before that my generation (Millenial) haven’t taken to the difference between initialisms and acronyms well. I’m not the first to bring this up,… Continue reading Three Edradour SFTC Offerings

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]

Edradour 10 2006 Signatory & Edradour 11 2002 Chateauneuf de Pape Finish {Binny’s Picks}

In my ongoing need to finish off whiskies that all come from the same distillery, it’s time for the smallest (in size, not in ferocity) distillery in Scotland, Edradour. So remember: As one Edradour closes, another one opens. So to start we have two picks from Binny’s. For those of you not in the know, Binny’s is an alcohol seller in the US. They have… Continue reading Edradour 10 2006 Signatory & Edradour 11 2002 Chateauneuf de Pape Finish {Binny’s Picks}
