Round 2! The Glenlivet 12y with Steve

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays everybody! Just posting a quick Round 2! review today because hey, it’s the holidays, guys. Here’s our previous review of The Glenlivet 12y. Next week we’ll start the year off with a couple of classic scotches as well as some Christmas gift reviews. Keep your stick on the ice; here’s

Innis & Gunn White Oak Wheat Beer with Dan, Goran & Steve

The last of the new Innis & Gunn (for now) is their White Oak Wheat Beer. This is.. well, it’s a wheat beer over white oak, but maybe you figured that out. It’s also a flavoured beer, as it’s been infused with bergamot and orange. If you’re not familiar with bergamot, it’s that flavour in

Innis & Gunn Limited Edition Highland Ale with Dan, Goran & Steve

Always a good day when a new Innis & Gunn shows up at the LCBO. And as much as we curse the Box Tax, they sure help take a decent picture. This time around it’s the Limited Edition Highland Ale, a golden brew steeped for 30 days with oak from a “famous” highland 18y single

Harviestoun Òrach Slie Golden Ale with Dan, Matt, Brian & Al

Harviestoun Òrach Slie Glenfarclas Cask Aged Golden Ale – so many words. Dan & I have had a Harviestoun before, their Ola Dubh. At the time it was advertised as being aged in Highland Park barrels, but the website doesn’t mention it now. The Òrach Slie is of course the same but in Glenfarclas barrels. We haven’t

Dead Crow Bourbon Beer with Matt, Dan, Brian & Al

Hat-tip to Colin for pointing me in the direction of Dead Crow Bourbon Beer. Not necessarily a ringing hat-tip, but a good lead nonetheless. Dead Crow Bourbon Beer is a… drink from a UK beverage company in Gloucester called SHS Drinks, whose motto is “a thirst for creating great brands”. Not “drinks”, “brands”. There’s no

Preview! Innis & Gunn Bourbon Pale Ale with Dan & Alex

Gotta love Twitter. I saw a promo for the Bourbon Pale Ale from Innis & Gunn’s UK account, so I tagged the Canadian account and asked if there were any samples available in Ontario. A couple of direct messages later and we received these two bottles express shipped. They’re not available in Ontario yet, but they

BattleScotch Royale! The English Whisky Co with Dan, Goran, Steve, Matt & Brian

You knew it had to happen. We haven’t had a setup for a proper BattleScotch! Royale this good for a while now. Obviously we had to pit the contents of The English Whisky Co sampler… uh.. crate against each other, because we’re petty tyrants who rely on competition to relate to other people instead of

The English Whisky Co Chapter Ten Sherry Finish with Dan, Goran, Steve, Julia, Brian & Matt

The last of the limey bastards, Chapter Ten from The English Whisky Co is their sherry cask bottling. They’ve used Olorosso casks, which we first heard of from an Innis & Gunn offering, but is spelled differently here. In fact, Google asks if you mean Oloroso, a Jerez fortified wine and regular source for whisky

Round 2: Penderyn Peated Single Malt with Ryan

Penderyn, Pride Of Wales. These guys kick ass. Since this is a Round 2, we’ve obviously had the Peated before, delivered in large format by my sister from her teaching trip to Wales. Last year’s trip produced the Penderyn Miniatures, featuring the Sherrywood and Madeira casked expressions as well. Since there are four other Penderyn
