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.
Readers of my reviews don’t just have constant ED (especially the women) and feelings of illness. They also notice things on a regular basis. Like how typically I’m the one who, at tastings like the one I was at, am having a mystery dram handed to me. Not so this time gentle viewer! No, this time the turntables have, in fact, turned. And as such,… Continue reading Fettercairn 28 1988 Signatory Spec’s Pick
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 pouring me this dram. Glen Keith isn’t exactly at the top of most peoples “saw it at a bar” lists. It’s the first Speyside to be built since the whisky crash of 1898. No, you aren’t dyslexic, that’s the 19th century. And it was mothballed in 1999, left to eventually reopen in 2013. Even after all of that, and having three official bottlings… Continue reading Glen Keith 21 1992 Archives
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. Enter Saba007. He likes Glenrothes as well. But he likes Sherry casks. So he goes out and gets an OB, single cask, cask strength Glenrothes that was aged in Sherry. Thus we… Continue reading Glenrothes 2003 Single Cask
I’ve never had a Convalmore. That’s actually what brought me to?Allen’s, a gastropub in Toronto, for my much belated birthday. Belated birthdays are what we do in my family. I saw a review by?/u/smokedherring, and I was interested in this. I wondered to myself if I enjoyed Convalmore. And I drew a blank. That’s fine, I’m not the kind of person who tries to set… Continue reading Convalmore 23 1976 Silent Stills
