Glenburgie 10 Gordon & MacPhail [MYSTERY]

Thanks to /u/bradbobaggins for this mystery dram. Mysteries, in and of themselves, are a good way to get your feet back on the ground. Add to that they are fun, and you have a good time where the chances of guessing what you’re drinking are typically reserved for some of the best and brightest amongst us, of which I’m still working on. Then there are mysteries that… Continue reading Glenburgie 10 Gordon & MacPhail [MYSTERY]

Green Spot Chatêau Montelena [MYSTERY]

Thanks to /u/Throzen for pouring this as a mystery. I’m a big fan of Irish whiskies. What caused that? Mostly Green Spot, if I’m being honest. Each time I’ve had it, I’m impressed.

The people at Mitchell & Son haven’t just sat back on one… Continue reading Green Spot Chatêau Montelena [MYSTERY]

No, I’m talking about the idea of different casks giving different results. Yes, I know statistically most casks age along a profile and are close to that… Continue reading Ledaig 11 2005 Signatory Cask Strength Collection (Cask 900157) [MYSTERY]

Ardmore 7 2009 Archives [MYSTERY]

To recap: /u/xile_ (his real name, really) had us all over for a mystery lineup. I brought brownies. That’s really not useful to the review. Well, I didn’t have them until the whiskies were done, and drank tons of water between each dram. Maybe that’s useful. Oh, and all of the whiskies were poured blind. xile_ bet I’d get two right. I showed him and got none… Continue reading Ardmore 7 2009 Archives [MYSTERY]
