A Tiny Trio of Tomintoul… Glenlivets? Stay tuned for 3 Reviews and a BattleScotch! coming your way!
Add another Innis & Gunn to the roster – Longitude & Latitude Series 001, the Barrel Aged Raspberry Saison. This was a great drink, somehow managing to be 6% and full flavoured while remaining exceptionally light. Hard to drink a case at $5 a pop but hey, that’s not good for you anyway. Here’s what
Happy week after St Patrick’s Day! Hey, either we make it a thing or this review sits on the shelf for a year. And by then, who knows? Maybe Red Bush will refer to brigades of aw shucks volunteers fighting under George W’s Veevay La Revolutseeon banner in the Second American Civil War, battling alongside
BAM. Perfect timing. Because the key to a good whiskey review is all in your calendar alignments. Paddy Old Irish Whiskey, ON St Paddy’s Day. Could you ask for anything more? Ever? No I think not. …This review was maybe done in November. Here are some “fun” facts: Paddy’s is in the Pernod Ricard stable
Quick little review with the family while I’m on the road in Vancouver. My sister bought a pre-St Paddy’s Day treat, Innis & Gunn Kindred Spirits Tullamore DEW Barrel Aged Stout for my brother in law and I to try (she did smell it and pronounced it “coffee I wouldn’t drink”). We’ve had Innis
Last of the Saskatoon Sessions! Sorry, publishing schedule got a little messed up when I … uh… just stopped posting for a while. Let’s just all be glad 2017 is behind us, I think that’s probably best. Live & learn. Give & grow. Or whatever. For the last of the Saskatoon Sessions we have a
….And the last Bruichladdich article for a while, I promise, but we had to do it – BattleScotch! Bruichladdich Edition! These were three pretty great scotches in their own right, but which of the three to buy? Here’s what we got: nose Dan – Heavily Peated Simon – Heavily Peated Ryan – Classic neat Dan
The last from the big blue box, Bruichladdich Port Charlotte Heavily Peated Scottish Barley Single Malt Scotch, because why not take 20 syllables and 10 words to name your thing. Isn’t there some notable quote about how being concise is… like, good? Port Charlotte isn’t just a figment of marketing magic, it’s an actual place.
Second out of the box, we have Bruichladdich’s Unpeated Islay Barley. It’s.. uh.. … it’s what the name says it is, I guess. I’ve tried to find this expression on the website, but i don’t have a conclusive link. The small bottles listed point to extremely specific (expensive sounding) terroir-y unpeated expressions. This is upeated,
First out of the Big Box o Bruichladdich – the Classic Laddie! The Classic is an established blend, created by one distiller and now serves as the mark the new distiller/blender must hit. This makes for better product consistency over time but I can imagine it might chafe after awhile. An unpeated expression, this is
