Bruichladdich 22 1990 Micro-Provenance Château Latour

Thanks to /u/kinohead for pouring me a dram of this So I’m at this tasting. And I showed up late, what with working normal hours and curling or whatever my excuse was. Nonetheless, when I asked “what should I be drinking”, the list was… huge. Reckless abandon seems to be the name of this tasting. Thus a bottled used for a split was put in front of… Continue reading Bruichladdich 22 1990 Micro-Provenance Château Latour

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. And I’ll scream my eccentric thoughts from the belfry every chance I get. I’ll even write a review or two on it. The people at Mitchell & Son haven’t just sat back on one… Continue reading Green Spot Chatêau Montelena [MYSTERY]

Bruichladdich 16 First Growth Cuvee B: Pauiliac (Chateau Latour)

Thanks to /u/throwboats for pouring me this sample. Bruichladdich has a lot of releases. And there’s a lot of casks that have been independently bottled. Then you have the fact they are on Islay, so you have Feis Ile releases, and let’s not forget they have single cask offerings at Scotch Mecca as well. As such, I’ve reviewed quite a few Bruichladdich whiskies. I’m not the top… Continue reading Bruichladdich 16 First Growth Cuvee B: Pauiliac (Chateau Latour)

Bruichladdich Warehouse Experience

After Lagavulin, we ate a lovely lunch at the Islay Hotel, where we ended up getting seated beside and chatting with an Australian that had made the trip to Islay on his own. Happily full and ready to go, we were off on the 40-minute drive to Bruichladdich. As this was my wife’s first time driving on this trip, I was understandably nervous and sober … Continue reading Bruichladdich Warehouse Experience

Edradour Ballechin 10 & Edradour Ballechin Discovery Series #7

Thanks to /u/RaunchyJowls & /u/Orehnmadgib for pouring me these samples. I recently reviewed quite a few Edradour. I felt I hadn’t properly reviewed the tiny distillery, so I got some friends to pour some samples for me. And then some more samples. And then maybe I reviewed too many Edradours (if there is such a thing). So I took a break, had some other distilleries. You know, share the… Continue reading Edradour Ballechin 10 & Edradour Ballechin Discovery Series #7

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
