Crown Royal Apple Thanks to my buddy for letting me have some of this. And by letting, I mean he’s welcome that I drank some of it. Crown Royal is finding ways to bring out whisky to the masses. And what do the masses like to do? Binge drink, dance, and do shots. Am I judging them? Fuck no, I was one of them. In… Continue reading Crown Royal Apple / Crown Royal XO
Thanks to /u/xile_ for pouring me a sample of this one. Hey, it’s time to review an Indian whisky. Which since I’m drinking it and reviewing it, which means it’s from… Paul John? Alright, so right now there’s two brands of Indian whisky that pop up. I typically drink the other one, Amrut, because I really like them and because so does /u/devoz and he’s a wonderful person who… Continue reading Paul John 6 Cadenhead Small Batch
Thanks to?/u/unclimability?for this sample. So this is how far behind me reviews are: I went to take a class about 8 weeks ago. Right before the first workshop, Unclimability showed up for an impromptu tasting, and we met in person. He left with both kidneys still on him. Since then said class kicked my ass all the way from here to next year. But I’m… Continue reading Penderyn Rich Oak

Thanks to?/u/Throzen[+69]?for pouring me this dram Upon joining the KavaFAN group, you’re given the opportunity to purchase?Kavalan Solist ex-Bourbon Cask KavaFAN pick. Simple idea: This is a single cask, chosen by the group, from an ex-bourbon cask. Someone, presumably, went to Taiwan and tested out different casks and tried it. I’ve spoken before on this, but it bears repeating: Finding out who is picking your… Continue reading Kavalan Solist ex-Bourbon Cask KavaFAN pick
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/Throzen for pouring me this dram. What is?Langatun Jacob’s Dram? This is the question I had when my buddy pulled it out at a tasting. Langatun is a distillery with roots in brewing. Each year that pulls out a distilled spirit and has some fun. Granted in Switzerland, before 2007, that couldn’t include distilling barley, as it turns out that Switzerland hated happiness. Or something… Continue reading Langatun Jacob’s Dram
