Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve with Brad, Chris & Junior

Once again, video to start!  Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve is yet another colour entry in the Johnnie Walker line. What makes it Gold? Why is it Reserved? Is it better than Johnnie Walker Brass Label Unlimited? Who knows! nose Simon – mild mash, “goldish” i guess, eggs, honey Brad – very subtle, hint […]

Johnnie Walker Double Black with Brad, Chris & Junior

How about we start this one with the video! Johnnie Walk Double Black is not twice as good as the regular Black Label. In fact, whatever taste Black is, it seems a lot like this has less of it. It claims to be peatier and aged in more-charred barrels or something, but that is not […]

Round 2! Johnnie Walker 12y Black Label with Brad, Chris & Junior

This one we’ve done before, so I’ll keep it brief this time around. First up out of the Johnnie Walker set is arguably my favourite, the 12y Black Label. The second from the bottom of the range, this holds with a lot of other blends and famous brands – it’s significantly better than the base […]

Teaser Tuesday! Johnnie Walker Discover Pack

Finally. Seven months after purchase, we finally got around to tasting this set. A broad selection of Johnnie Walkers, as it turns out, is not appreciable better than a narrow one. But you can read about it. And maybe watch it if I get the video edited in time.

I brought it in to work for a little office morale, the first Thursty Thursday of many, hopefully. The bottle describes the legend of Boxing Rock as a place in Shelburne […]

Innis & Gunn Vintage 2015 with Brad, Dan & Laura

Innis & Gunn Vintage! As found in Winnipeg. As much as I love Innis & Gunn, this one’s a bit of a reach. At *twenty* dollars each, you’d be excused for forgetting it’s just beer. You pay the Tube Tax. You pay the import beer tax. You pay the bottle conditioned tax, and the 100 […]

Labatt Prohibition Series Bourbon Barrel Ale with Brad

I spent a few days down in (relatively) sunny Michigan for a Michigan Municipal League tradeshow, and stumbled across another Canadian. Well, not… not Canadian beer, like Molson Canadian Beer, but a lower-case-upper-case-C Canadian beer…ugh. Let’s try this again – I was down in the States with my buddy Brad for work and we found […]
