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

McClelland’s Speyside Single Malt Scotch with Steph

Here we have McClelland’s Speyside, brother from another region to their Islay bottling. McClelland’s range is pretty reasonably priced, so it’s not too much of a hardship to give it a go. It’s not amazing spirits, but they tend to be decent examples of the region they’re taken from, this one obviously meant to showcase

McClelland’s Islay Single Malt Whisky with Dan & Ryan

McClelland’s is not a distillery, so this is a little different from what we’ve been looking at so far.  They are a bottler, as near as I can tell, who get their contents from Morrison Bowmore’s various distilleries, split up into lines by geographic regions.  I guess the idea is to create a brand of

Radical Road Canny Man Scotch Cask Aged Beer with Dan, Ryan & Goran

Picked up these two bottles of Radical Road Canny Man scotch whisky cask aged beers.  Radical Road’s web presence seems to be limited to a Twitter account, so I can’t give you much more info than that they’re from Toronto.  What scotch barrels they’ve aged their beer in would be good to know. As beer

Maker’s Mark Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whisky with Trevor & Steph (part 2 of An Evening Beyond The Pale)

If you’re going to taste a couple of beers, and then taste those same beers after they’ve been aged in Maker’s Mark bourbon barrels, it makes a little sense to, y’know… maybe see what the interim step tastes like too, because hey – life is short and then the space monsters get you. Here’s something

Penderyn Single Malt Peated Welsh Whisky with Dan

Our first Welsh whisky! Penderyn offers a number of different spirits, and their whisky line is pretty complete with some award winning wine-cask aged whiskies.  This particular bottle was a gift from my sister, a good guess on her part grabbing the Peated instead of one of the others – history shows I’m not a

Talisker Scotch Whisky Collection

I recently finished my bottle of Talisker 10y, the first bottle of scotch I ever bought.  For about the same price to replace the 750ml size, I got the Talisker Scotch Whisky Collection boxed thing.  It comes with 200ml bottles of the 10y, Distiller’s Edition and 57° expressions Update June 7 2018 – for Throwback
