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.

George Dickel No. 12 Tennessee Sour Mash Whisky with Dan & Davey

Another Dickel! Everyone needs a good Dickel every once in a while, right? I’m right. We introduced this brand with their Rye, and we talked about sour mash whiskey before with Jack Daniels. However, despite those two strikes, George Dickel No. 12 Tennessee Sour Mash Whisky turned out to be quite a pleasant surprise. So

The Original Oldbury Sheep Dip Malt Whisky with Dan & Davey

Wiki defines “sheep dip” as a liquid formulation of insecticide and fungicide which shepherds and farmers may use to protect their sheep from infestation against external parasites such as itch mite (Psorobia ovis), blow-fly, ticks and lice. So, yay!…? Sounds delicious. Sheep Dip Malt Whisky is made by the Spencerfield Spirit Company in Inverkeithing, across

George Dickel 95% Rye Whisky with Ryan, Davey & Alex

Alright, the first of a new brand. George Dickel Rye! Let’s give it a go. This is a Tennessee whisky… or is it? On the page above, they are very careful to talk up the quality of the rye without actually saying they make it themselves. Which, if you remember, was the same as Bulleit

Nikka Whisky From The Barrel with Dan, Ryan & Goran

Whisky from far away lands, and our second from Japan! Nikka Whisky From The Barrel comes by way of a friend‘s mountain climbing travels. There’s a great story about this distillery – Masataka Taketsuru’s long journey from his family’s sake brewing in Takehara, Japan to university in Glasgow, Scotland, bringing home the origin of the

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

Black Velvet Blended Canadian Whisky by Peter (Guest Review)

Simon – Peter is a total stranger to me. I am only aware of his existence because of the Twitters. But he’s pretty funny on there, and pretty funny right here, so you should check him out. He also writes at Book Riot and like books or something. I think he has kids? Actually, I’m

Bain’s Cape Mountain 5y Single Grain with Dan, Ryan & Goran

Found this newbie in the LCBO a few weeks ago. I think I’d be searching based on country, looking for new stuff.  And hey, found it! Bain’s Cape Mountain is from South Africa, and made from a single South African grain. I’m not sure if they’re referring to a specific local grain, or if it’s

Revel Stoke Spiced Whisky with Dan, Goran & Ryan

Here we have the first of our flavoured whiskies, Revel Stoke Spiced Whisky. We’re broadening our horizons and widening our palates by letting strangers put chemicals in our drinks. Revel Stoke comes from Phillips Distilling, makers of the Phillips Unions Canadian Whisky/Kentucky Straight Bourbon (but called a Whiskey) melding (meddling? meddling), and this appears to

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
