Tomatin Oloroso 18y with Dan

Tomatin Oloroso 18y, the last of the Tomatin Stillmen’s Choice sampler. Next week, we close Tomatin month with the obligatory BattleScotch! At 18y, this is in the old end of things we’ve tried at iScotch – this is only the 5th 18y in almost 300 posts, and none older than that. Maybe it’s because of

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

Gordon Graham’s Black Bottle with Dan, Goran, Steve, Brian & Matt

Steve’s first submission – actually, that’s not true. Steve provided the tiny bottles for the Glengoyne and Old Fettercairn reviews, but he wasn’t around to review… not that there would have been enough, them being tiny bottles and all, Gordon Graham’s Black Bottle was a good pick. It’s not often these days that I haven’t

Innis & Gunn Scotch Whisky Porter with Davey

We have reviewed a lot of Innis & Gunn beers and products up here at iScotch, and we only disliked two: Original in a can and the Bourbon Stout. The Scotch Whisky Porter makes post 16 in three years for this particular brand, which is kind of crazy. Should probably keep that in mind when I bitch about the gap between releases.

Teacher’s Highland Cream with Davey & Alex

It’s been a while since we did an actual scotch here at iScotch. Like, two months. We’ve really burned through a lot of what’s available nearby, going to have to start going further afield soon. But, in the meantime, here’s a cheap twisty blend from the bottom shelf at the LCBO – Teacher’s Highland Cream.

iScotch Scotch Slurry with Dan, Ryan & Julia

And now for something different. Not completely different, because 1) it’s still whisky and 2) I’m not quoting Monty Python. This is… relatively different while remaining on-topic for a website about booze. HOW relatively different, you ask? And why does it say ‘slurry’ in the title, you continue to ask? And do you really think

Whyte & Mackay Special Blended Scotch with Dan & Goran

A classic twisty blend, Whyte & Mackay is available in large quantities from most LCBOs. Launched in 1844 in Glasgow, the company has changed hands many times, coming to be partly owned by Diageo and is currently involved in an anti-trust investigation against Diageo’s massive scotch holdings. They are also associated with epic scotch brands

Cutty Sark Blended Scotch with Dan, Goran & Ryan

Given the nautical theme of this particular bottle we are legally required to do this entire review in Pirate – specifically a ruckas 1700s band ‘o pirates wit’ cutlass ‘n not 2000s scary band ‘o pirates wit’ RPGs ‘n AK47s. Ahoy!, did ye be knowin’ that t’ guy who invented t’ AK47 lived t’ be

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
