Ardbeg Drum Committee Release

I complained a while ago that I wasn’t reviewing that many Ardbegs. Oh, and then I started reviewing Ardbegs because I’m a two-faced idiot who can’t see into the future or notice the stuff his whisky friends are buying. But this time I bought the samples. I had friends who were wondering about?Ardbeg Drum Committee Release, the stronger cask strength version of this year’s release.… Continue reading Ardbeg Drum Committee Release

Amrut Single Cask ex-Jaggery Rum Cask

Thanks to /u/devoz for pouring me a sample of this. It’s weird being a reviewer. You end up going with what you can get, as I’m not charismatic enough to sell out my morals and make this something where I can get free things from what I like. Enter?Amrut Single Cask ex-Jaggery Rum Cask, a single cask that only came into Kensington Wine Market. I’ve reviewed a… Continue reading Amrut Single Cask ex-Jaggery Rum Cask

Hyde 6 No. 4 President’s Choice Rum Cask Finish

This past year (2018) I had lots and lots of plans. Finish my accounting schooling, find a new job in a new career space, figure out if the worms have gotten to my brains yet, and review enough Irish Whiskey to finally hit 100 total reviews. I’m happy to say I got most of that done, and I haven’t yet started to search out the… Continue reading Hyde 6 No. 4 President’s Choice Rum Cask Finish

Clynelish 15 James MacArthur’s Fine Malt Selection

Thanks to /u/throwboats for pouring me a sample of this dram. Back again with another Rum Cask. For those of you who don’t follow me like I’m made of candy and orgasms, I specifically hunt down rum casks. Part of me thinks that rum casks may have had a bad rap. Why? Well, let’s point out that if they were in Cuba they couldn’t end up being… Continue reading Clynelish 15 James MacArthur’s Fine Malt Selection

Northern Border Collection 2017

Thanks to Wiser’s for inviting myself and /u/muaddib99 as part of the Toronto Whisky Society. Please note that while we appreciate being invited, our reviews are our own and Wiser’s has not edited these at all. Sharp pointy sticks to all our crouches. There, they wouldn’t allow that, no one likes that and whisky. Well, very few people do. In a few weeks the first Northern Border Collection… Continue reading Northern Border Collection 2017

Arranpocalypse (Part 1)

Funny story. Wait, not really. Funny. Maybe sad. I’m fascinated by different casks. I’m intrigued by anyone who is trying new and different things in life. Why? Because while I may not always agree with the mentality behind a business/individual who does something different, I can tip my hat (if I wore one) to them for attempting something different. Yes, sometimes the road less traveled… Continue reading Arranpocalypse (Part 1)

Teeling 5 part review

Thanks to /u/cantbelieveyoureddit for being a great bartender. For awhile now I’ve been slowly collecting Teeling whiskies to eventually do a multi review. I have a decent amount of them. When planning for the trip, I had looked around at a lot of “Internet v.1.0” websites that directed me towards various whiskey bars in Dublin. The odd one mentioned Jameson Distillery, what with the new… Continue reading Teeling 5 part review

Amrut-pocalayplse [12 Part Review]

Thanks to /u/Jolarbear, /u/LetThereBeR0ck, /u/devoz, /u/WDMC-905, and /u/Schockwaves for the samples. Regulations are a funny thing. Looking at the history of the Scotch industry, one finds that the regulations have been a double edged sword. Originally people had a still, and took whatever leftover barely, wheat, etc. and put it in the still, and drank what came out. Simple alcohol, no cuts, and was something… Continue reading Amrut-pocalayplse [12 Part Review]

Longrow Triple Review [CV, Peated, 7 Gaja Barolo]

Campbeltown. The region that’s only sometimes included in the regions list. At one time Cambeltown had more whisky makers in it’s city than any other region in Scotland. And then… I assume the 80s happened, because let’s be honest, even if it wasn’t, I feel fine blaming the 80s for something else. Anyway, in the last few years, the region has been slowly coming back… Continue reading Longrow Triple Review [CV, Peated, 7 Gaja Barolo]
