Glenfiddich Wardhead 1997 Cooper’s Choice Port Cask Finish

Thanks to /u/devoz for pouring me this dram. “You ever had a Wardhead?” Yup, I was asked that. I stare back at people who ask me that, and I’m drawing a blank. Never heard of it. Then I’m told that Wardhead is Glenfiddich, teaspooned with an equally aged whisky. So it’s a blend. A vatting, if you will. Why? Because Glenfiddich doesn’t allow independent bottlers to release… Continue reading Glenfiddich Wardhead 1997 Cooper’s Choice Port Cask Finish

Glenfarclas 105 22

Alright, so every so often there’s a limited edition that catches my eye. Distillery bottlings command a premium, getting something that is worth it (and actually limited to some degree) is tough, you’re hoping it’s worth it, and all that. Glenfarclas has brought out 105 a few times before. I, for one, am typically interested in it, simply because it’s a stronger strength, it’s not… Continue reading Glenfarclas 105 22

Benrinnes 13 1998 A.D. Rattray Cask Collection

Thanks to?/u/nsquare14?for the sample. A long time ago I found out that Benrinnes was the thing. Ex-sherry specifically. I bought a bottle of Benrinnes 14 A.D. Rattray Cask Collection, enjoyed it a lot, and here we are. Since then it’s been harder to find these nice ex-sherry cask Benrinnes, probably because we weren’t wrong about how tasty they are. Thus when the opportunity came up… Continue reading Benrinnes 13 1998 A.D. Rattray Cask Collection

Ardmore 10 2008 Carn Mor Rare Drams

Thanks to?/u/Throzen?for pouring me a dram. Finishing up an impromptu tasting at Devoz’s place with Unclimbability, xile_, Throzen, distillasian, and smoked_herring, there was a lot of choices. It takes a certain amount of being an adult to not overdrink, not take everything put down in front of you, and also know your limit as well as not drive home after drinking over it. Also not… Continue reading Ardmore 10 2008 Carn Mor Rare Drams

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)
