Thanks to /u/lol_oilers for sharing this dram If you’re ever lucky enough to visit Islay and make your way to Bruichladdich, then you’ll come across a group of distillery exclusive Valinch bottlings. Some of them will be named after the hard workers, some will by given Gaelic names that most of us will butcher, and all will be pricey. Usually for a good reason. I’ve never been… Continue reading Bruichladdich Port Charlotte Valinch – Cask Exploration 19 Cuan Dorcha
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/tishpickle for pouring me this dram. Here we are at Advent Calendar Day #12. Yes, I’m sticking to this. Now. Mostly. I don’t know, I’ve been busy, maybe I should stop all of this? Nah, that’s silly, we came this far. So I’ve been doing blind tastings of whiskies my wife chose and sorted in a silly way. Let’s see what’s up next, shall… Continue reading Akashi White Oak 5 White Wine Cask
I’ve had Swiss whisky before. One. They don’t make it all the way through the mountains, singing about the hills and all that to Canada. So when a friend of mine from down south in Canada’s pants (the US, you may have heard of it) mentioned that I should try another, I went hunting for a sample. Langatun started way back in 1861 as a… Continue reading Langatun Old Deer Classic Cask Proof
Thanks to /u/throwboats for pouring me this sample. I walk into my large, 360 degree At TOModera review industries, made by the literal 10s of dollars I’ve made from reviews. As I look down from the 100th floor, my meek assistant walks in with a concerned look on her face. “Excuse me, your lord and saviour of whisky, we have a concern.” I smile as she calls… Continue reading Glen Moray Elgin Classic Chardonnay Cask
Thanks to /u/ForbiddenWaffle for pouring me this dram. It’s quite amazing that almost six years ago, I woke up early in the morning, listening to the rooster cockadoodle-doo, and decided I was going to post. Not post as in a hard cylindrical object standing at attention, post a review. Over 1564 reviews later, I still worry about seeming cocky. I’ve certainly grown, not by staying in the… Continue reading Miltonduff SMWS 72.47 “Burnt Spotted Dick” [1,000th Scotch Review]
Thanks /u/Orehnmadgib for pouring these for me. Continuing on with a different type of review series, I had a bunch of Campbeltown samples, felt like I wanted to review more of them, and put two and two together and didn’t end up with three. Which is for the best, what with working with numbers every day. Longrow is the big peat energy distillery of Campbeltown at the… Continue reading Longrow 9 2007 Sauternes & Longrow 15 2001 Chardonnay/Bourbon Single Cask
