Glenfiddich 19y Age of Discovery with Holly, Trevor, Steve & Dan

After doing a bunch of these reviews (like… a bunch), you can sort of perceive bigger trends. Like how for a bourbon, you need either a year or a cork, and preferably both. How Irish whiskey is the best value for flavour, but Canadian is what you buy if you’re mixing. One thing we’ve noticed […]

Great Lakes Brewery Beard of Zeus Barrel-Aged Barley Wine with Ryan

Great Lakes Brewery Beard of Zeus Barrel-Aged Barley Wine. It’s a name whose length is only bested by how long I’ve been meaning to post this review – there just always seemed to be something better to talk about. I believe Ryan picked this up for us to try. We cracked it open and had […]

The Best Of 2013 with Dan, Ryan & Goran

What a year. We’re having a great time with this blog, and I think we’ve got something pretty cool to show for it. In 2013, we reviewed 91 whiskies (scotches, bourbons, irish, new makes, etc), 21 beers, 12 BattleScotch!, as well as 3 guest reviews and a number of other articles. We’ve made friends with […]

Seventh Beer Of Christmas: Muskoka Winter Beard Double Chocolate Cranberry Stout with Ryan, Goran & Dan

DERP I PUT IT IN A BIG SHINY BOX. I’m now making the ‘gimme money’ hand motion. $13.95 is a lot of money for one beer, even if it is fancy. Muskoka Brewery, out of Bracebridge, is another independent local brewery success story, now selling across Ontario through the local liquor monopoly, and in several […]

Sixth Beer Of Christmas: Gouden Carolus Cuvee Van De Keizer with Dan, Goran, Ryan & Bowick

For the sixth beer of Christmas, my true government monopoly gave to me, TWO GIANT BEERS! I think Het Anker might be my new happy place. A brewery and a distillery and a restaurant AND a hotel! Because, let’s face it, after enjoying what they have to offer you’re going to need a little lie […]

Second Beer Of Christmas: Fuller’s Vintage Ale with Dan & Ryan

DERP I PUT IT IN A BOX. More money please. You can see our last post for our true feelings on extra packaging, but it certainly does help to signify… uh… more effort in marketing. And an increase in price. There’s a lot of shit in boxes at the liquor store right now. But this […]

Birthday Scotch Review – Dun Bheagan 8y Islay Hogshead

Spending 36 on the beach with the dog. Steph kindly handed me this bottle on my way west and I’ve had a fair portion watching the dog chase beach rabbits. Customary back story which i really should have written yesterday: Dun Bheagan is a bottler, not a distiller, so there’s not too much available on […]
