Four Roses 2013 Limited Edition – Small Batch 125 Anniversary Edition [Re-Review]

Thanks to?/u/devoz[+177]?for pouring a sample for me. A few years ago one of those “odd” moments happened with Bourbon. Four Roses 2013 Limited Edition – Small Batch 125 Anniversary Edition, a special edition from a large company, was released in large enough quantities that most could have it. It wasn’t NAS, it wasn’t watered down, and it wasn’t bad. This was their anniversary edition. Taters… Continue reading Four Roses 2013 Limited Edition – Small Batch 125 Anniversary Edition [Re-Review]

The Irishman Single Malt

So I thought I hadn’t reviewed?The Irishman Single Malt?before, thus when fellow TWS members were handed samples by a company representing them, I said sure. Then I reviewed it, and re-read my old review. Oops. Not really. You see, these are made in small batches. Something like 1,000 bottles in total. So some variation is expected. Maybe. Some companies are proud to vary, some have… Continue reading The Irishman Single Malt

Balvenie 21 Portwood [Re-Review]

Thanks to whiskytanuki for taking the amazing pics at the recent tasting. Recently the Toronto Whisky Society was privileged enough to have a Balvenie tasting. And not just any Balvenie tasting, but one with Jame Johnson, our resident Brand Ambassador slash co-host of The Whisky Topic. And I was happy enough to join. The line-up was pretty epic, however as a biased person who likes Balvenie (cause I’m a… Continue reading Balvenie 21 Portwood [Re-Review]

Laphroaig 18 [Re-review]

Thanks to /u/Throzen for sharing a dram of this one. Nostalgia is a set of rose coloured glasses that will forever poison the past with sugar. It makes us second guess if things were really better, or perhaps not. So when people discuss, with sadness, the discontinued Laphroaig 18 versus the Laphroaig 15 which replaced it. However I remember that people really enjoyed the Laphroaig 15 before Laphroaig 18 replaced … Continue reading Laphroaig 18 [Re-review]

Connemara Peated Single Malt [RE-REVIEW]

Thanks to /u/devoz for this sample. Which he gave to me as he feels I’ve matured and changed my view on this dram. Actually because he looked over my old review and said “Wow, that score is too high”. Which I then read up on, wondering “Hmmm, I haven’t read that in awhile.” I actually don’t read my own reviews too often, as I’m not a narcissist.… Continue reading Connemara Peated Single Malt [RE-REVIEW]

Wild Turkey Shootout (13 – Distiller’s Reserve, Kentucky Spirit, Rare Breed)

Thanks to /u/I_SAID_NO_GOLDFISH for the sample of Wild Turkey 13. A buddy of mine is going to be a dad. And as such, I assume his entire personal life will go right to heck and end up having no time for us DINKS who only want cats. So I packed up some samples and went to his place. He’s a big fan of Wild Turkey, and… Continue reading Wild Turkey Shootout (13 – Distiller’s Reserve, Kentucky Spirit, Rare Breed)

Stronachie 18 A. D. Rattray [Re-Review]

Thanks to /u/WDMC-905 for the sample. Every so often I have someone who doesn’t agree with my reviews. And when it isn’t the usual suspects who are snarky, they ask me nicely and I eventually find a new dram to re-review it. Sometimes my score changes, sometimes I’m drinking Tobermory and it’s not better. However what usually doesn’t happen is someone actually offers me the bloody… Continue reading Stronachie 18 A. D. Rattray [Re-Review]
