iScotch Scotch Slurry with Dan, Ryan & Julia

And now for something different. Not completely different, because 1) it’s still whisky and 2) I’m not quoting Monty Python. This is… relatively different while remaining on-topic for a website about booze. HOW relatively different, you ask? And why does it say ‘slurry’ in the title, you continue to ask? And do you really think

Nickel Brook Headstock Light Lager by Laura (Guest Review)

Simon – Laura is another Twitter friend! You can follow her @skinnyandsingle and @helenlaura5, and read her blog! Photo also by Laura! It’s a beautiful Canada Day in Burlington, Ontario. I’m attending the Canada Day celebrations at Spencer Smith Park with my two girlfriends. It’s so sunny and hot that of course, I beeline for

Black Velvet Blended Canadian Whisky by Peter (Guest Review)

Simon – Peter is a total stranger to me. I am only aware of his existence because of the Twitters. But he’s pretty funny on there, and pretty funny right here, so you should check him out. He also writes at Book Riot and like books or something. I think he has kids? Actually, I’m

Revel Stoke Spiced Whisky with Dan, Goran & Ryan

Here we have the first of our flavoured whiskies, Revel Stoke Spiced Whisky. We’re broadening our horizons and widening our palates by letting strangers put chemicals in our drinks. Revel Stoke comes from Phillips Distilling, makers of the Phillips Unions Canadian Whisky/Kentucky Straight Bourbon (but called a Whiskey) melding (meddling? meddling), and this appears to

Stalk & Barrel Cask 8 with Dan, Goran, Ryan & Matt

Can’t do a quick business tour of the GTA without stopping in at Still Waters Distillery in Concord/Vaughan. If you check our reviews of their Stalk & Barrel Cask 2 single malt and their 1+11 Special Blend, you’ll see why: these guys are doing it right. I have to admit that last time I visited

Forty Creek Double Barrel Reserve with Dan

The fourth Forty Creek. So that’s, like… A Hundred And Sixty Creek, I guess. And we’re not even half way through the brand. This time out we’ve got the Double Barrel Reserve, specifically lot 240 distillery no. 54sl46. It’s a blend of individually aged corn, rye and barley whiskies mixed into and aged in second-use

Forty Creek Copper Pot Reserve with Dan, Goran & Matt

Forty Creek Copper Pot Reserve, the second rung of the Forty Creek product line. This is our third foray into this brand, previous trying the Premium Barrel Select, and pitting their Cream Liquor against Bailey’s on Christmas Day. As we mentioned in the PBS review, we have some history with Forty Creek, mostly for parties

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. This is Danfield’s Private Reserve. It’s made by Williams & Churchill. They’re either from Lethbridge, Alberta or Valleyfield, Quebec.

Gibson’s Finest 12y with Dan, Ryan & Goran

Part one of our Drank Myself Budget Unconscious series, Gibson’s Finest 12y. And we’ve managed to stay one rung off the bottom here, because at almost $2.00 more than the Sterling per 750ml, this is the second tier offering from Gibson’s. Gibson’s is owned by Grant’s from Scotland, and was known for it’s rye in

Nickel Brook Kentucky Bastard Imperial Stout with Dan

Bourbon-aged beer – truly it is a promise of great taste. This is the Nickel Brook Kentucky Bastard Imperial Stout, a nice little post-New Year’s cask aged beer. It’s aged in unspecified Kentucky bourbon barrels for an unspecified amount of time.  And for some reason there’s a planetary model of an atom on the front,
