Weller Special Reserve Wheated Bourbon with Dan

A new budget bourbon appeared on the shelf at the LCBO and we had to try it. Weller Special Reserve, The Original Wheated Bourbon. Despite being “wheated” (which sounds like a Saskatchewan hazing ritual), this is still marked as a Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. The requirements for KSBW are just that the mash be 51%

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.

Dudes and dudettes, it’s that time of year again! NO NOT THAT TIME IT’S STILL NOVEMBER. ffs. It’s the new Innis & Gunn Collection time! Head’s up, I can’t give you the LCBO link because they haven’t updated their website and are still showing 2011’s kit for 2011’s price. In this kit you get: a

Whereas “Number 1” is a sort of nebulous non-specific claim that looks good in marketing materials. They make lots of claims

Innis & Gunn Original in a can

Let’s call this a PSA. Loyal readers will know I’m a big fan of most of Innis & Gunn’s cask-aged beer.  I think they were the first non-whisk(e)y thing I posted about on the site, because they taste great.  But they’ve always been a little expensive, clocking in at around $60.00 for a case of

Finally! The Innis & Gunn 6 Pack

File this under “about goddamned time” – Innis & Gunn finally realized that a bag of bottles is not a classy way to take their product home and have put out a 6 pack.  Only found Original so far, but maybe they’ll make another sampler pack with me having to wait until Christmas.  You can
