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! I keep adding an extra N. That’s not even a joke, I’m just bad at it. Langatun Avo Jazz Session 1st Ed.?is meant to evoke that idea of Jazz in that idea of creating something… Continue reading Langatun Avo Jazz Session 1st Ed.
Thanks to /u/Saba007 for pouring me this dram. Hey, so I’m behind. Super behind. There was this whisky that came out. It’s a 29-year-old Bunnahabhain. Oh, and the second it came out, everyone went ape nuts for it and it was purchased before the first digital piece of ink could hit the digital internet tube to get to you. Of course, I’m talking about?Bunnahabhain 29 1987 Wemyss… Continue reading Bunnahabhain 29 1987 Wemyss The Viceroys Elixir
Thanks to /u/Saba007 for this one Glenrothes. I enjoy them. Quite a bit. As long as they are a) independently bottled and b) cask strength. Oh, and c) ex-Bourbon casks. I’m a sucker for them.

Thus we… Continue reading Glenrothes 2003 Single Cask

Not all riddles are meant to be answered, as otherwise, everything seems violent, disturbing, and generally not fun.… Continue reading Craigellachie 9 2008 Single Cask Nation Oloroso Sherry Octaves
I was never a step child. Yeah, I know, look at me bragging about my parents being able to find happiness and have a balanced, healthy relationship that was a positive impact on their lives. So when I call Hazelburn the red-headed step child of the Springbank family, I mean only as much as it’s a joke. In reality I hope that all of the… Continue reading Hazelburn 13 2004 Oloroso Cask Matured
I meant to post this quite a while ago, however, I’ve been as sick as a dog, tired, honestly mentally and soul exhausted at being on the internet after the last couple weeks, oh and currently working on reviewing a 400-page book. Not to mention life being life, as usual. Alright, let’s get my bias out of the way. I like Balvenie. I enjoy honey… Continue reading Four Balvenie of Interest
Our sense of vision is pretty shitty in the animal kingdom. Compare it to a cat that can see better in the dark, or a hawk that can see much further, or even owls which got bits of both. But have any of them invented pop tarts? No, so let’s stick with humans for now. So with my puny, not-even-great-vision-for-a-human (I wear glasses, 4/20 vision),… Continue reading Mortlach 31 1987 Gordon & MacPhail Connoisseurs Choice – Cask Strength
