Bowmore 26 French Oak Barrique – The Vintner’s Trilogy

Thanks to /u/xile_ for the sample. I slag off Bowmore a lot. Starting with positivity today. I’m just shitting rainbows up in here. Now don’t get me wrong. I won’t mock anyone for enjoying Bowmore. And I’ve certainly had some fun, interesting times with Bowmore. That all said, I should probably note that those fun times, those “I’m going out of my way” times were always cask… Continue reading Bowmore 26 French Oak Barrique – The Vintner’s Trilogy

Bruichladdich Port Charlotte MRC:01

Thanks to?/u/distillasian[+14]?for pouring me this sample. So picture this: You’re sitting at your desk, getting work done. You enjoy your job enough and making good time. My phone goes off, and there’s a ton of pictures. A friend of mine, let’s call him distillasian, is on Islay. And while I’m having a coffee with work, he’s meeting Dionysus, based on his excitement. Well, I elaborate.… Continue reading Bruichladdich Port Charlotte MRC:01

Thanks to /u/Throzen for pouring me the sample What goes after you had a mystery dram and finally got around to trying your second ever Langatun? Why mispronouncing another Langatun, of course!

Langatun Jacob’s Dram

Thanks to /u/Throzen for pouring me this dram. What is?Langatun Jacob’s Dram? This is the question I had when my buddy pulled it out at a tasting. Langatun is a distillery with roots in brewing. Each year that pulls out a distilled spirit and has some fun. Granted in Switzerland, before 2007, that couldn’t include distilling barley, as it turns out that Switzerland hated happiness. Or something… Continue reading Langatun Jacob’s Dram

Edradour 10 2007 SFTC Burgundy Cask Matured

This year for my birthday my wife wanted to get me something interesting. So she picked out a Ballechin from a store that had no reviews. The store ended up selling us the incorrect bottle. By the time it came in, turns out that reviews had popped up. And the difference in score was quite substantial. To the positive side. Also the price was better… Continue reading Edradour 10 2007 SFTC Burgundy Cask Matured

Bruichladdich Laddie Crew Valinch 31 – Steven Vanbockrijck

Thanks to /u/bananavanman[ for pouring me a sample. So as some people know, I GM Pathfinder games. Or for those of you not down the collective rabbit hole of Pen and Paper Role Player Games, I play a version of Dungeon and Dragons that is similar to the third edition. So I’m the GM, or Game Master, and thus I do a bunch of talking, saying all… Continue reading Bruichladdich Laddie Crew Valinch 31 – Steven Vanbockrijck

Bruichladdich Laddie Crew Valinch 30 – Frazer Matthews

Thanks to /u/Bananavanman for pouring me a sample. Frazer Matthews is a tour guide at Bruichladdich. To you or me that may seem like a cool summer job, and frankly, most of us at our summer jobs didn’t end up with a bottle pick (or whatever the equivalent is of being a waiter, shelf stacker, or cement maker, in my case). No Frazer not only worked… Continue reading Bruichladdich Laddie Crew Valinch 30 – Frazer Matthews
