That Time I Drank 21 Whiskeys With Dan

A recent very excellent birth day present, two tickets to Whiskey Ottawa, thanks Hillary!

A massive event with a good 3-400 people and looooots of different whiskeys and whiskies. So much scotch, such tiny glasses.

For the sake of it not taking half a year to publish, and because the notes are short and get shorter, here’s all our drinks and thoughts for the night, in order of consumption:

Bunnahabhain 12y – good, light

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bunnahabhain Toiteach a Dha – campfire by the sea, candied smoked trout, phenols, amazing, does stuff to tongue, salty

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Deanston – thick bite, salty caramel no like

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jura 10 – so good, like smoked honey

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jura 12 – caramel, marshmallow

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dalmore 12 – not much to it. Sharp.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dalmore 15 – sweet wood but not much else

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Forty Creek victory – a little corn. Wild Turkey, copper

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Talisker 10 – my favourite

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cardhu 12 – leather

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lagavulin 8 – so good

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BenRiach 10 – apples, spice, heat, sharp

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BenRiach Speyside – acidic, thin

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Evolution – slimy, oily, nope

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Glendronach 12 – vomit, thin. Not much

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Glendronach Peat – one dimensional

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Glenrothes – leather burn, vegetable

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Glenrothes 18y – light and nice

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Legent – airy, open, light

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Glenfiddich fire & cane – nice good smoke, well made

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Glenfiddich Xx – smokey, sharper

 

It’s possible we had more than 21, in fact I’m sure of it, because there’s more pictures of bottles, but no more notes. So there you go, 21 rapid fire reviews you probably can’t use. But we had a great time!
