Christmas Day BattleScotch! Forty Creek Cream Liquor v Baileys Original Irish Cream with Sarah, Goran, Dan, Ryan & Robin

Christmas Day Battlescotch! As if today weren’t awesome/stressful enough, let’s throw in some more conflict and alcohol! At least this way you’ll know which of these to use to smooth out your coffee and your relatives. We’ve had a Forty Creek before, but I didn’t do much digging for the last article. Forty Creek distillery

BattleScotch! Bushmills 10y Single Malt v Jura Origin 10y with Dan, Ryan & Goran

Alright alright alright! BattleScotch! Battle of the 10 year olds! It’s gonna be dirty fighting and name calling the whole way down. On the left, Bushmills 10y Single Malt, on the right, Jura Origin 10y. Both crowd pleasers, and while the results won’t tarnish anyone’s enjoyment of either, it might inform our purchases in the

Connemara Peated Single Malt Irish Whiskey with Dan & Ryan

This one has been on the list for a while, good grab on Dan’s part. Connemara‘s claim to fame is being the only peated single malt irish whiskey, which sounds pretty unverifiable from this side of the Atlantic. Still a good pitch. If you read the site you realize that it’s a blend of young

Bushmills 10y with Dan & Goran

Another box-checking entry we’d been looking forward to.  We’ve had the Bushmills 10y before but it didn’t survive long enough to be reviewed. Oh well, a timely return. This leaves very few of the Bushmills’ stable that we haven’t tried yet – Dan is talking about tracking down the 21y later this year. Good, but

Jameson Irish Whiskey with Goran & Ryan

Just a quick few words today on a old soldier. Jameson Irish Whisky has been around forever, for good reason. While nothing outstanding, this is a good whiskey for the price. smell Simon – smooth, wood, sweet, light solvent Goran – liquor, chocolate, rose Ryan – plastic, floral neat Simon – smooth, late burn, raspberry

Kilbeggan Irish Whiskey with Dan & Ryan

A twisty irish bottle, not usually a good sign.  A website with lots of videos and drink recipes is also never a good sign.  Especially when I can’t *find* this bottle anywhere on their site.  kilbegganwhiskey.com also doesn’t mention being the oldest distillery, which is something you’d think they’d mention a lot, since they say

Tullamore D.E.W. with Dan, Ryan & Goran

It recently being St Paddy’s day, you’ll have to put up with one or two more Irish Whiskey reviews.  I know Dan is a big fan of the lightness and smoothness of the Irish dram, and my appreciation doesn’t look to ebb anytime soon.  PS The D.E.W. is Tullamore D.E.W. is the distiller’s initials. smell

Bushmills Irish Whiskey with Dan & Goran

In celebration of St Patty’s day, the patron saint of hamburgers or somesuch, and also in the spirit of completevism (you get to 50 odd reviews and you start wanting to know the totality of a line), here’s our review of the little brother of the Bushmill‘s line. smell dan – berry, wood, honey, sharp

Bushmills 16y with The Dan

For all that this site is called iscotch, I do love me some fine Irish whiskey.  And this is some fine Irish whiskey. Bushmills is pretty much always good.  Previously we’ve reviewed Black Bush and thoroughly enjoyed it.  This single malt Irish whiskey continues that tradition. smell dan – sweet, unburnt caramel, floral simon –
