Tomatin Spanish Sherry 12y with Dan

Welcome to Tomatin Month at iScotch. What? you say. Is this some kind of sponsorship jam? Nope! Just found this sampler at the liquor store in the Calgary airport and Dan & I rattled off three reviews and a BattleScotch in an evening. So here we go! Up first we have the Tomatin Spanish Sherry

Innis & Gunn Limited Edition Highland Ale with Dan, Goran & Steve

Always a good day when a new Innis & Gunn shows up at the LCBO. And as much as we curse the Box Tax, they sure help take a decent picture. This time around it’s the Limited Edition Highland Ale, a golden brew steeped for 30 days with oak from a “famous” highland 18y single

Highland Park 10y with Dan, Bowick, Ryan & Goran

What a pleasant surprise. Clocking in $15 cheaper than the excellent 12y, the Highland Park 10y is a welcome addition to the $45-60 range. While it tastes young, the pedigree is there. I would give you a link to the specific expression, but their website makes no mention of it. smell Dan – peat, coffee,
