Old Grand Dad triple review (80, Bottled in Bond, 114 proof)

Thanks to /u/I_SAID_NO_GOLDFISH, /u/stinkysauce and /u/Jolarbear for these samples. I almost feel like I don’t need to introduce the Old Grand Dad Bourbon series. It was created by Raymond Basil and named after his grandfather. Or really everyone’s grandfather. His name was Basil Hayden Sr. So I guess the other bourbon wasn’t good enough in the naming department. Or he was bad at names. I’m going to… Continue reading Old Grand Dad triple review (80, Bottled in Bond, 114 proof)

Crown Royal Hand Selected Barrel [Review of a New Bottle]

Thanks to /u/devoz for this sample. And you may find yourself living in a shotgun shack And you may find yourself in another part of the world And you may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile And you may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful wife And you may ask yourself Well…How did I get here? Oh… I got caught… Continue reading Crown Royal Hand Selected Barrel [Review of a New Bottle]

Maker’s Mark Cask Strength [RE-REVIEW]

Thanks to someone who traded me this. They are no longer on Reddit. When last we left off, I, your intrepid hero of drinking whiskey and … uh… stuff… was trying multiple bourbon’s at a pace he’d consider “fast” and trying to write down notes to not seem too “stupid”. He failed at both. As such, hoping to add clarity to the dozens of fan… Continue reading Maker’s Mark Cask Strength [RE-REVIEW]

9 Mystery Bourbon Tasting

Thanks to /u/devoz, /u/lasidar, /u/texacer, /u/jolarbear , /u/muaddib99, /u/boyd86, /u/neversafeforlife, /u/slackerdude, and honestly other people who I can’t remember your reddit handles but I can remember your real names and saying them out loud would break confidentiality. So we had our Canadian Mystery Bourbon Tasting (45% or higher Abv.). And let me just say, showing no cockiness at all, that I did pretty well. I… Continue reading 9 Mystery Bourbon Tasting

Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 [Feather’s Flight Review Set #13 / Re-Review]

This is the last of my The Feather’s Pub birthday dram reviews. Typically these are all on /r/scotch, since it’s a Scotch bar, and I’m more of a Scotch fan. However something happened while there that I need to share, so let me set the stage: I go out for my birthday. I attempt about 4-5 reviews during that time, with lots of breaks, water, etc.… Continue reading Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 [Feather’s Flight Review Set #13 / Re-Review]

Glenmorangie Cluster Fuck Reviews [Companta, 18, Signet, Quinta Ruban, Lasanta, Astar]

Thanks to /u/devoz, /u/lasidar, /u/scotch_fanatic, and /u/allumina for samples. And me for buying others. Me is pretty great. Can’t name things though. So based on some of my last multi-reviews, I can’t call this a vertical. It’s vertical-ish, but not really a vertical. Also isn’t a horizontal either. Diagnonal sounds dumb. No, this is a Cluster Fuck (patent pending) of reviews. What’s a Cluster Fuck? Well… Continue reading Glenmorangie Cluster Fuck Reviews [Companta, 18, Signet, Quinta Ruban, Lasanta, Astar]

Nikka Triple Leftovers Review [Coffey Grain, Yoichi 10, Miyagikyo 15]

Thanks to all the people who swapped me these. It’s been awhile, so I can’t find where they came from. Apologies. I’m logging in my swaps now to ensure that everyone gets a shout out in the future. So fun story time (feel free to skip): I ended up wanting to do a review of all the Nikka Malts. And then I wanted to do… Continue reading Nikka Triple Leftovers Review [Coffey Grain, Yoichi 10, Miyagikyo 15]

Dalwhinnie 15 [Re-Review][Mystery Review]

Hi all! It’s mystery scotch time! So I know this is a Scotch. That’s for certain. I know that it came from /u/LecheConCarnie. I know it came from a bottle that has been opened for 9 years. So that means… I’m not going to guess this easily. Alright, so maybe I should go through my thought process on guessing this one. Price: $92.95 (CAD) at the… Continue reading Dalwhinnie 15 [Re-Review][Mystery Review]

Green Spot / Yellow Spot

Special thanks to /u/Randimosity for the sample of Yellow Spot. Just off my successful American tour of drams, I thought I’d dedicate part of the most Irish month of the year (February) to Whiskey from Ireland. Wait, I’ve gotten March and February mixed up, haven’t I? Well fuck. Too late now, it’s Irish February, a bitterly cold month dedicated to the cheery, constantly maligned, and generally… Continue reading Green Spot / Yellow Spot

Balvenie 14 Caribbean Cask [Mystery / Re-Review]

And so we come to the end of the mystery drams from my Secret Santa, /u/muaddib99. Thanks again. It’s been a stressful few weeks, mostly due to work, and an excess of drinking due to weddings, bachelor parties, my birthday, and well, work stress. I’m happy to say that going into Xmas I’ll be cutting back some and just enjoying water. Try to get back… Continue reading Balvenie 14 Caribbean Cask [Mystery / Re-Review]
