Innis & Gunn Kith & Kin Teeling Whiskey-Aged Stout with Dan & Davey

The day after St Paddy’s Day is the perfect time to drop these little Scottish/Irish gems. Innis & Gunn Kith & Kin, the first Innis & Gunn to use (or reveal) the name brand whisky barrels used to age their beer. In this case, it’s Teeling whiskey, a great Irish distiller. We’ve had a Teeling

Glenfarclas 12y with Dan & Bowick

Alright, the last of the Glenfarclii, the 12y. We can jump right to the notes, here’s what we thought:   nose Dan – old banana, salty baked bread, fresh fudge Simon – old candies, cereal, smoked fish Bowick – coffee, wheat neat Dan – spicy & salty, fried melon Simon – sting and spice, not

Glenfarclas 105 Cask Strength with Dan & Bowick

Second out the box of Glenfarclas it’s the 105! Named after something, I’m sure, but as we said last time the website is a little light on information. They suggest serving this as a “210” (a double) which might blow your face off, honestly. The 105 is offered at a cask strength of 60%, or

66 Gilead Wild Oak with Dan & Ryan

66 Gilead Wild Oak, a new Ontario whisky from Prince Edward County. Yay for whisky from within 300 kilometres from home! Thanks to Brad for picking this up on a recent trip. The Wild Oak is a corn, rye and wheat bourbon-style whisky aged in charred oak, and it does taste like a rye bourbon.

Wayne Gretzy 99 Red Cask with Dan, Davey, Vanni & Ryan

Two weeks ago we brought you AJ’s thoughts on The Liquormen’s Ol’ Dirty Canadian Whisky, the whisky of the Trailer Park Boys. This week’s celebrity vanity spirit is Wayne Gretzky’s No 99 Red Cask. I’ll have to grab Drake’s whatever the hell it’s called to round out (and maybe salvage) this well-marketed trio. (Photo by

Guest Review! The Liquormen’s Ol’ Dirty Canadian Whisky By AJ

Simon – So I feel a little bad about this one. I bought this bottle on my way through Calgary and hadn’t noticed the Trailer Park Boys logo at the top. I got home, tried a dram and flinched. This was a job for our contract Bad Whisky Expert AJ, writer of the hilarious Proof

JP Wiser’s Hopped Whisky (Dark Ale Style) with Dan

JP Wiser’s Hopped Whisky. A tiny sampler attached to the Double Still Rye. I just got called out for hating on Wiser’s in the last review, and this one’s not going to help that perception one bit. We generally don’t like Wiser’s and you can say that makes the review a self-fulfilling prophecy. But we

Old Forester Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey with Dan & Julia

How do you like that, it’s Kentucky Derby Day & we’re reviewing Old Forester, the Official Bourbon Of The Kentucky Derby! Had no idea of either, this is a complete fluke. I used to ride horses, too, this is sort of embarrassing. A couple interesting facts about Old Forester: it’s the longest running bourbon available,

Gooderham & Worts Four Grain Canadian Whisky with Davey, Matt & Steve

Gooderham & Worts Four Grain Canadian Whisky. Corn, barley, wheat & rye blended together and named for the distillery that is now the Distillery District in Toronto. The name appears to be the only real connection to the original Gooderham & Worts company – this whisky is now distilled in Corbyville with much of the
