Teachers Highland Cream

Sweet and Peaty Teachers Highland Cream

The last time I had Teacher's was many, many, many years ago. Back then however I remember it being a bitterly dry whisky. Coming back to it after all these years was kinda exciting, so I decided to…

Buffalo Trace

That Bitter Buffalo Buffalo Trace

Exactly one month short of a full year since I started on my first "proper" single malt (Aberlour 12), I decided to crack open something new that was sitting in my cabinet the whole year. It was a choice…

Crown Royal Black

Worthy Crown Royal Black

I'll be honest, the one thing that drew me to pick this one up was the dark, caramel colour. I like the look of a dark, DARK whisky. It's always been more appealing to the eye (IMHO). Not sure how much…
