Johnnie Walker Blue Label with Brad, Chris & Junior

Another Review! Another Video Review!  Finally, the almighty Johnnie Walker Blue. What makes this blend worth over $300 a bottle? Nothing! It isn’t. nose Simon – sharp, mashier, honey or caramel on browning apple slices Brad – mellow, moss, ron swanson in scotland, excited Chris – faint, wheat field, country, spring day Junior – […]

Round 2! Johnnie Walker 12y Black Label with Brad, Chris & Junior

This one we’ve done before, so I’ll keep it brief this time around. First up out of the Johnnie Walker set is arguably my favourite, the 12y Black Label. The second from the bottom of the range, this holds with a lot of other blends and famous brands – it’s significantly better than the base […]

Teaser Tuesday! Johnnie Walker Discover Pack

Finally. Seven months after purchase, we finally got around to tasting this set. A broad selection of Johnnie Walkers, as it turns out, is not appreciable better than a narrow one. But you can read about it. And maybe watch it if I get the video edited in time.

Every year like clockwork March stumbles in from the cold and delivers Irish Stereotype Reinforcement Day to warm the cockles of your projectile vomiting heart. St Paddy’s Day in North America has as much to do with Ireland as Chinese food in North America has to do with China – as in maybe a immigrant […]

BlenderScotch Royale! Dewar’s White Label v The Black Grouse v Cutty Sark with Dan, Ryan, Goran & Matt

Here we go, welcome to our first at-home, more-than-two-way BattleScotch! That’s not really anything noteworthy, except that it’s called BlenderScotch! Royale because BIG CLICKS BABY. And also because this is the review we did ON the second anniversary of iScotch. As per corporate policy, we have reviewed all three bottles on their own: Dewar’s White […]

Dewar’s White Label Blended Scotch with Dan, Ryan, Goran & Davey

Still deep in budget territory, we find the Dewar’s White Label. Wait, you say. Or… the you in my head anyway. Or, yous – there’s at least a million of you and you all wait with baited breath to read the next disrespectful, distrustful, pseudo-anti-corporate-but-still-buying-their-product-ful missive from iScotch’s secret base in the Andes mountains, where […]

BattleScotch! Bushmills White Label Blend v Bushmills 10y Single Malt with Dan, Goran, Ryan & Chris

Here we go again! BattlesScotch gonna leave you BattleScortched (patent pending) with all the hot Bushmills on Bushmills action up in here! Something different this time: introducing the Overall Impression category, basically a fourth vote either way for the complete experience of the whisky, as a few times the scores didn’t truly reflect the decisions […]

Jim Beam Original Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey with Ryan & Goran

Sometimes there isn’t much to say about a bourbon.  Allegedly Jim Beam is the world’s best selling bourbon, oops, sorry, “Number 1” bourbon.  “Best selling” is something that could be backed up by data. Whereas “Number 1” is a sort of nebulous non-specific claim that looks good in marketing materials. They make lots of claims […]

Johnnie Walker Black Label 12y with Goran & Ryan

We need to start with a bit of a come-clean about Johnnie Walker.  None of us get it. We don’t get why JW is considered a great drink, let alone why it has the prestige it does. This is the second Label we’ve tried and we still don’t. smell Simon – honey, toffee, maple, smoke […]
