    I’m not too familiar with older Laphroaigs. Before buying this bottle, the oldest Laphroaig I’d had was a 16 year old OB, and that was ages ago. My familiarity with this brand comes mostly from my con… read more

    I read about Sullivan Cove's award winning single cask whisky only quite recently after it won some of the top accolades at the World Whisky Awards this year. I don't really care much for awards, mind… read more

    Ah, yes! The old school Ardbegs from the great forgotten era of 2010. Back when peat monsters ruled and the world was getting it's first taste of NAS whiskies. Second in line after the inaugural 2009 … read more

    There is butter, sweetness and toffee in the nose right from the start. The first hit on my palette is smooth. Almost sweet, but balanced. The finish is not as smooth, which is welcomed as it rounds out… read more
