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

Islay Mist 8y Blended Scotch with Dan, Goran, Ryan & Davey

Interesting. A cheap, twist-off blend… that also happens to be aged and specifically from Islay. Islay Mist 8y is produced by MacDuff International, the same people who gave us Grand MacNish – which has been referred to as “scrotch”. Less interesting, more worrisome. And a look at the back of the bottle points to its

The Black Grouse Blended Scotch with Dan, Goran & Ryan

A Christmas blend – thanks, Bengt! We’ve had a Grouse before, but I didn’t do much of a write-up because we had destroyed ourselves at the ScotchParty and I was still hungover. The Famous Grouse website details the growth of the Gloag family’s local grocery into a supplier of wine to the royal family to

Deanston Single Malt Scotch with Dan, Ryan, Goran & Bowick

Deanston. Haven’t heard or seen much of this brand since starting this blog, so I decided to grab it when it showed up at the LCBO. We do it so you don’t have to, and in this case you really shouldn’t. Deanston is owned by Burn Stewart Distillers, who also own Tobermory and Bunnahabhain, neither

Poit Dhubh 8y Blended Scotch with Dan, Goran, Ryan & Bowick

Poit Dhubh! Knowing Gaelic it’s probably pronounced ‘Greg’. This is the 8y old bro to the  Té Bheag so there’s not too much more to add from that article.  There are two other expressions at 12 and 21 years. Hopefully that’s a good sign that Gaelic Whisky will be around for a while. We did,

Té Bheag Nan Eilean Blended Scotch with Dan, Ryan & Goran

Two things upfront: 1) I think Goran may have let the cat out of the bag early on this one, calling it One of our favourite finds of 2013. Possibly the best taste-for-value around. — iscotch.ca (@iscotchdotca) November 22, 2013 on Twitter. So he’ll get burned with cigarettes for Ed Snowdon’ing our content. 2) It’s

ScotchParty Review #7 – The Famous Grouse with Dan, Jared & Bowick

So… yeah.. late at night. Not our best work. We had a few bail-outs and quitters. But to be fair they may have already been asleep. Shameful to say that we are going to have to revisit The Famous Grouse (warning, Flash splash page ahead, because it’s 2004) because the notes are incomplete. I will

Robert Burns Blended Scotch Whisky with Dan

Another visitor from New Brunswick, second to last of east coast interlopers. Nothing quite like attaching a national poet‘s name to your product to drag in the ex-pat dollars and drunk patriots’ pounds… Pretty fucking morose when you realize he drank himself to death.  It’s like Columbine Brand Bullets. Or Michael Hutchinson Glad Kitchen Catchers. 

Chivas Regal 12y Blended Scotch Whisky with Dan & Ryan

A fine blend. Chivas Regal 12y is the bottom of the line entry from Chivas, a blender that also offers 18y and 21y blended expressions. They appear to be based out of the Strathisla Distillery, which makes me think there’s a good reason for that, likely making up a significant portion of the blend. But
