So here’s a quick little beer review as we gear up for some serious scotchification in the next few weeks. Yeah, I said it. If you didn’t want made up words, buddy you are in the wrong place. We’ve had a Radical Road brew to review in the past, and they are definitely interesting. Here’s
Celebration whisky is always good. Dan & Laura gave Ryan this bottle to say thanks for Being the MC at their wedding reception. He did a good job, and a good job deserves scotch. We’ve tried the 12y before, and I’ve had the 18y at my bro-in-law’s. So it was nice to try the middle
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
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
The fifth ScotchParty Review, the third McClelland’s. This time we’re trying out their Highlands bottling. And it seems to hold up to their “reasonable scotch at a reasonable price” reputation. Here’s what we thought: smell Simon – nutty, old wood Dan – sweet, wood in burn, apricot Ryan – peaty, sweet Goran – nice, spongecake,
The last of the new scotch, the Lagavulin is also the last entry in the Classic Malts Strong Collection and it definitely lives up to its name. neat Jono – Tanned, wooden & very sweet. Vanni – leather & bacon. Me – musty, leathery. Peaty & very potent. with ice Jono – mellows very nicely.
Review Number 2 from The Night Of Many Whiskies. If you look closely in the photo to the left there’s a see-thru gun and a pump bottle of Purel on the table because damnit that is just how we roll. You’d better have an invite, is all I’m saying. Four Roses is owned by Kirin
So, we had a little get-together. Everyone brought a bottle. We did our level best to properly review all of them. Seriously, we really really tried. A part of the BenRiach brand, GlenDronach is one of the deepest red scotches I’ve ever seen, and since we tasted this one towards the beginning of the night,
It’s pronounced a-nock. Steph picked this up for me in Montreal, and it’s one that’s been on the to-try list for a while. We also got to verify the consistency of our tasting experience by staging this over three tastings – me, Goran and Ryan, then Dan, then Steph. The consistency was a nice affirmation.
What a pleasant surprise. Clocking in $15 cheaper than the excellent 12y, the Highland Park 10y is a welcome addition to the $45-60 range. While it tastes young, the pedigree is there. I would give you a link to the specific expression, but their website makes no mention of it. smell Dan – peat, coffee,
