Hey scotchkateers, taking a lap this week and back on the good foot next. Have to build up our supply of reviews and reviewables. Stay tuned, we’re back next week!
Just a quick photo post this week. Things are busy! Hope you’re offering your guests something good to drink.
I’m not a professional event host or anything, and I’m not trying to make any money off of this thing (yet). But a couple times now, I’ve been asked or offered to walk some friends through some whiskies as a fun thing to do when we get together. It’s not that hard, and I recommend … Continue reading How To Do A Whisky Tasting
This year’s Christmas Pack from Innis & Gunn! Four beers and… a… coaster. Neat! Used to get a proper beer glass for a couple years, then they gave away a honking big bottle opener but… sure, a coaster is nice. I guess. This year’s kit comes with an Original, a Lager, a Bourbon Cask Dark … Continue reading Innis & Gunn Holiday 4-Pack
Haven’t had a good run from a good distiller in a long time, so coming up through September and October – The Dalmore. Grabbed this shwank sampler pack to give us 3 reviews, a Round 2 and a BattleScotch in classic iScotch form. Stay tuned for the 12y, the Gran Reserva, the 15y and the … Continue reading Teaser – The Dalmore Sampler
In the course of running a blog, you lose shit. If, like me, you’re a photographer first and foremost, you don’t lose photos, but you do lose slips of paper. Especially when those slips of paper were last seen at some point in a late night analysis of the subjective qualities of grain-based intoxicants. But, since I … Continue reading The Top 18 iScotch Posts That Weren’t
300 posts on iscotch.ca. That’s pretty crazy. Granted, they’re not all bottles of single malt scotch – the brand got watered down early and often, that’s for sure. Over the course of the last 299 spicy whisky word burps we’ve posted here, we’ve come across some fantastic spirits, some interesting beers and some fancy gins, … Continue reading The Big Three Hundo
This is pretty awesome. John at Cooper’s contacted me to see if we’d be interested in giving whisky cask aged coffee a taste. It’s one of those happy coincidences that Dan is a coffeehouse manager and a competitive barista to boot. So we said hell yes. The parcel arrived from Rhode Island with that bag … Continue reading Cooper’s Cask Coffee with Dan & Julia

Well… end-of-Summer-by-the-time-I-found-it Mixed Pack. One Innis & Gunn Original, one Lager and one Toasted Oak IPA. Stay tuned for the reviews on the two new ones, and hurry up to the LCBO if you want to find this. There’s always plenty of goddamned Rum Finish, of which I am not a fan, but the other … Continue reading Innis & Gunn Summer Mixed Pack
