Teeling Small Batch Whiskey with Dan

Now here’s something we haven’t had in a while – a new Irish whiskey! Teeling has been showing up in my Twitter feed a lot lately, so it was a nice coincidence that Dan picked up a bottle. Here’s something weird. If you Google for “teeling”, the first hit (paid advertising) is their competition Jameson,

Dillon’s Rose Gin Batch 11 with Dan & Alex

Dillon’s Rose Gin, a flavoured gin liquor. We’re well out of our wheelhouse with this one. Rose gins aren’t too uncommon, and rose hips show up as one of the botanicals in a few major brands too. But in this case, the rose petals are steeped in the gin, and then the whole thing is sweetened

Updated! Dillon’s Unfiltered Gin 22 by Holly (Guest Review), or WWHD? (What Would Hemingway Do?) with Dan, Laura & Ryan

Simon – My good friend, fellow blogger, theoretical band bandmate and four kinds of ninja Holly has been bribed to write for us with the promise of an Ontario gin! Check out her blog as well. Apologies for the crappy photo (left). WWHD? (What Would Hemingway Do?) **Though I have been unable to appreciate the taste

Danfield’s Private Reserve Small Batch with Ryan & Goran

Just a quick entry in our ongoing series of budget reviews. But, you guys just did a Macallan tasting, you might say, if you were paying attention. And Yeah, I’d say, we did. It was free.

Canadian Club Small Batch Classic 12y with Goran & Ryan

The classic Christmas cadieux, the boozy boxed set. Thanks Ryan! Canadian Club gets a bit of a bad rap, one we tried to address with our review about the Premium. Unfortunately, this particular numbered-C12-057-for-some-reason Classic misses the mark fairly significantly. Canadian Club is one of those brands that gets named drop when trying to establish

Fifth Beer Of Christmas: Mill Street Brewery Barley Wine with Goran & Ryan

YAY CHRISTMAS BEERS! YAY FIVE BEERS! SOrry! sorry for shouting! This is Mill Street Brewery‘s Barley Wine Batch #13-331-4! This will be a short review because we’ve already talked about who Mill Street Brewery are and what a barley wine is. This is both of those things so click those links if you want to

Glenfiddich 18y Batch 3088 with Ryan, Matt & Goran

It’s been a while but we’ve come back to Glenfiddich, thanks to my good friend Matt. Last time, we looked at their web presence and were a little underwhelmed with the drink. This time is different. A little bit of history. Actually, a lot of history. The first distillation apparently occurred Christmas Day 1887, which

ScotchParty Review #2 – Four Roses Small Batch with Dan, Ashley, Ryan, Goran & Bowick

Review Number 2 from The Night Of Many Whiskies.  If you look closely in the photo to the left there’s a see-thru gun and a pump bottle of Purel on the table because damnit that is just how we roll.  You’d better have an invite, is all I’m saying. Four Roses is owned by Kirin
