    I know that's a bold title to write about a malt which has been letting some of its fans down recently. However, not being a big Talisker drinker, I still must say that I've enjoyed this one a lot. Why… read more

  • Old Pulteney 12 Year old - THE liquid definition of balance.

    By Georgy on 21st Oct 20162016-10-21T13:14:00


    NOSE: The nose is very complex indeed! It has two main components working harmoniously together: a sweet one and a savory one, with the sweet one being slightly more prominent. Very delicate and sugary… read more

  • Jim Beam Rye - Light, sweet, haystack

    By Demoncase on 20th Oct 20162016-10-20T21:42:00

  • Old Grand Dad 114 - Great entry-level CS bourbon

    By JasonHambrey on 19th Oct 20162016-10-19T20:30:00


    I got this through @Victor, after he discussed some of his love for it. It costs $25 in Maryland - to think that a good, cask strength bourbon, goes for that much - wow. If you can get it, I suppose. It… read more
