Glen Moray 24 Duncan Taylor Dimensions

Thanks to?@scotchguy.to?for sharing a dram of this with me. So I’m at a whisky tasting. One where I have to be picky, because I have class the next morning, but I’m also drinking with a bunch of whisky nerds. I choose a Glen Moray. Specifically?Glen Moray 24 Duncan Taylor Dimensions. Others are less enthused about it. You see, as a group we’ve had an embarrassment… Continue reading Glen Moray 24 Duncan Taylor Dimensions

BenRiach 10 2009 Peated (Cask 584)

Thanks to?/u/devoz?for pouring me a dram. By some fluke I ended up with another peated, younger BenRiach. It’s almost like I know what I like when I ask for samples from other adults who pour me things that I take home. Where was I? Oh, yes.?BenRiach 10 2009 Peated, an ex-bourbon barrel single cask BenRiach bottled specifically for the Wee Rock Whisky Club, a BC… Continue reading BenRiach 10 2009 Peated (Cask 584)

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

Ardbeg 15 2000 Chieftain’s

Thanks to /u/Saba007 for pouring me this dram. I don’t review Ardbeg often. Why? Well, they guarantee to bring out one special edition a year, two if you count the committee and non-committee versions. I live in a province that gets it super late (and typically overprices these releases), and the other releases would require me to eat nothing but beans all year. Yeah, I couldn’t even… Continue reading Ardbeg 15 2000 Chieftain’s

Islay Mist 17

Thanks to?@scotchguy.to?for sharing a dram of this with me. There’s always a question of what to drink on a regular basis. Now I’m not saying drink excessively. If you need a whisky reviewer to tell you that, then… holy damn, get some help. Call someone you love. Even if you think they won’t answer. But if you’re drinking a healthy amount, and want something to… Continue reading Islay Mist 17

Tobermory 8 2008 Archives

Thanks to?@scotchguy.to?for sharing a dram of this with me. Something I’m always looking for is a brash, young, interesting whisky. Usually, that means a full maturation. Usually means something beyond an ex-bourbon cask, something peated, something with an odd mashbill. It doesn’t always mean it will work. And sometimes something else works. So a friend brought out?Tobermory 8 2008 Archives?at a recent tasting. I’ve never… Continue reading Tobermory 8 2008 Archives
