Pike Creek 10y Rum Cask with Matt

I could’ve sworn we’d had a Pike Creek before, but a quick search for “creek” only pings Forty, Knob and Corner. So add another creek to the… uh.. pile? of creeks? Not creaks, creeks. This particular creek is where Pike Creek ages their whisky, in this case in Rum Casks. Altho the website only mentions

Tomintoul Glenlivet 10y with Dan & Goran

Tomintoul Glenlivet 10y. So.. which is it? It appears to be a Tomintoul, as Tomintoul’s website calls all their whiskies Glenlivet Speyside. The Distillery is the Tomintoul-Glenlivet distillery, but it’s owned by Angus Dundee, while Glenlivet is owned by Pernod. Glenlivet is a place, tho. Tomintoul & the River Livet (and one would assume its

West Cork 10y Irish Whiskey with Ryan & Dan

Aw yiss a new aged Irish whiskey – West Cork 10y! A new one for us, anyway, West Cork has been around for about 15 years. West Cork likes Bourbon casks – the entire range spends some amount of time in used American oak. Even their select sherry, rum and port special 12y expressions all

BattleScotch! Glenfarclas with Dan & Bowick

Well, you knew this was going to happen, of course. It’s not a brand sampler without a BattleScotch to tell you which is worth your time or money. Always a little tricky with the tiny bottles, but when it comes to ranking Glenfarclii, here’s what we thought: nose Dan – 12y Simon – 10y Bowick

Glenfarclas 10y with Dan & Bowick

Aw yiss, Glenfarclas at last. We’ve seen Glenfarclas 10y on the shelves for a while, and I was tantalizingly close to getting a bottle through Secret Santa one year.  I recently found this sampler pack at the airport liquor store in Edmonton, which grimly was open at 7am. But hey, I bought liquor at 7:05

Tiny Review! Glengoyne 10y Unpeated

The second Tiny Review! Supplied by my friend Steve, brought back from his travels to the exotic British Isles (first time that’s been said, I’m sure) and handed over to me for tasting and reviewing and writing up: this is Glengoyne 10y Unpeated Scotch Whisky. Glengoyne is officially/technically a Highlands scotch, but it has a

BattleScotch! Aberlour 10y v McClelland’s Speyside with Matt

Speyside BattleScotch! The budget conscious McClelland’s Speyside, a line we love, up against the allegedly more prestigious aged Aberlour. Matt’s idea was to pit two known quantity Speysides against each other as a way to calibrate how budget the budget single malt really is. What are you not getting from it that you might get
