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!
