Balvenie 15 Year Old

Quite Hit and Miss. Balvenie 15 Year Old

This has been a favorite whisky for some time. When it is on, it is all honey, and I love it. Now and again, I get a bitter finish that I dislike. Recently, I have come under the impression that the…

Clynelish A.D. Rattray 17YO

Delicious, and sadly gone. Clynelish A.D. Rattray 17YO

Intro Glendro Glendronach 12 Year Old Original

To be honest, I was searching for the 15YO, but my choices were the 12 and 18. Well why not start at the beginning? This was right around 54 dollars in Nashville TN. The 18 was selling for 115.Matured…

Four Roses Small Batch Limited 2012

2nd bottle on deck... Four Roses Small Batch Limited 2012

A quarter way into my second bottle of this most outstanding bourbon. I was lucky enough to catch wind of the quality of 2012's offering just before the insanity hit, and was able to sample, then procure…
