Gooderham & Worts 4 Grain

A Pleasant Surprise Gooderham & Worts 4 Grain

I've never had the "basic" Gooderham & Worts whisky so I figured I owed it to myself to try it.* Nose: There’s sweetness at first with brown sugar and caramel, followed by some surprisingly assertive rye…

Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban

Sweet and savoury? Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban

The first time I tried this whisky was some years ago at a Glenmorangie/Ardbeg dinner and tasting. That particular version of Quinta Ruban was a 12 year old offering whereas this newer version is 14…

Jim Beam Old Tub Bottled in Bond

Bonded Beam Jim Beam Old Tub Bottled in Bond

A non-chill-filtered, non-carbon filtered Jim Beam offering at 100 proof for $44 CAD? Count me in. I tend to like the Jim Beam profile (i.e. roasted peanuts and caramel popcorn) so I bought this one…

Michter's US*1 Small Batch Bourbon

Humble Pie Michter's US*1 Small Batch Bourbon

I bought this bourbon on a bit of a whim. I'm sure Michter's paid Netflix to include it prominently in several seasons of the entertaining Jessica Jones which I was binge-watching when I bought this. I…

W. L. Weller Weller Special Reserve

Peach Cobbler W. L. Weller Weller Special Reserve

I've got a complicated relationship with Buffalo Trace's Weller line. I love the Antique 107. My bottle of Weller 12 was almost undrinkable for about 18 months and then transitioned to a pretty nice…
