Rosebank 21 1990

Thanks to /u/Saba007 for pouring me this dram. So I’ve been sick, and that’s sucked. Really sick. Haven’t had the energy to have many drams, save for special occasions, and haven’t had the energy to do much more than work/school. But you’re not here for that. You’re here because I’m well again and writing again. So let’s get to that. Rosebank is one of those distilleries you… Continue reading Rosebank 21 1990

Glen Keith 21 1992 Archives

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

The Irishman Single Malt

So I thought I hadn’t reviewed?The Irishman Single Malt?before, thus when fellow TWS members were handed samples by a company representing them, I said sure. Then I reviewed it, and re-read my old review. Oops. Not really. You see, these are made in small batches. Something like 1,000 bottles in total. So some variation is expected. Maybe. Some companies are proud to vary, some have… Continue reading The Irishman Single Malt

Convalmore 23 1976 Silent Stills

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

Pittyvaich 15 1989 Old Malt Cask Douglas Laing

So I’m at?Allen’s, a gastropub in Toronto known for a good selection of whiskies, on my birthday. And it’s time for my second whisky. Meaning that it’s time for my wife to pick one out. So she picked something that was over $100 a dram, and my father (who was paying) vetoed it, because.. Holy damn people, I’m not a Vanderbilt over here. After some… Continue reading Pittyvaich 15 1989 Old Malt Cask Douglas Laing
