Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old

Tasty, but not memorable Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old

This is a whisky that I was very interested to try. Part of Diageo's Classic Malts range, it was rated 95 points in Jim Murray's Whisky Bible- and yet, almost unilaterally, people I know said it was…

Glenfarclas '105'

Sherry Behemoth Glenfarclas '105'

Glenfarclas is a fantastic distillery in my books. Still family-owned, it churns out whisky of dependable, excellent quality, and their '105' bottling is no exception. Running a whopping 60% alcohol and…

Glenfiddich 15 Year Old Solera Reserve

Interesting idea Glenfiddich 15 Year Old Solera Reserve

Glenfiddich is one of the most, if not THE most, popular single malts around in terms of pure sales. Whether it deserves this level of popularity or not isn't something I'm going to argue over here, and…

Bowmore 15 Year Old - Darkest

Sherry Bonfire Bowmore 15 Year Old - Darkest

Bowmore is the oldest distillery on Islay, established a whopping 235 years ago in 1779. It is one of the last distilleries to have its own floor malting (only five other Scottish distilleries still do…

Glenlivet 16 Year Old Nadurra

The Way It Should Be Done Glenlivet 16 Year Old Nadurra

Glenlivet's Nadurra is the most natural bottling in their range, released without chill filtering and at cask strength, a sturdy 54.8% in this case. These two things are definite pluses in my book, and…

Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban

Portaholic Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban

While I enjoy my scotch just as much as other whisk(e)y, I've never actually written a review of it before- perhaps because I was just less experienced with it. In any case, this was a great place to…

Four Roses Single Barrel

Delicate in a good way Four Roses Single Barrel

Four Roses provides a wealth of information about their bourbon, something that I greatly appreciate. This particular batch is from Warehouse RS, and is barrel 80-1U. It uses recipe OBSV, which is a 60%…

Jim Beam White Label

Bland Jim Beam White Label

Jim Beam is an absolutely iconic whiskey, and the distillery puts out some extremely good whiskey (Booker's Small Batch being a prime example). But how about their standard product? I've heard several…

Maker's Mark 46

A huge improvement Maker's Mark 46

Maker's 46 is the first and only new variation of the standard Maker's Mark, created by putting ordinary Maker's into new toasted oak barrels with toasted staves in the middle. The result is a surpris…

Hancock's President's Reserve

Rich but elegant Hancock's President's Reserve

Hancock's President's Reserve is one of the single-barrel offerings of the Buffalo Trace distillery, and probably my favorite of the lot aside from the rather more expensive Blanton's Gold Edition.App…
