Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 273: The Fenians 16 Year Old 2002 for MMM
Every year Manny and I try to put an odd one out in our series. This year… an Irish single malt! We dubbed it the Fenians. Originating in Irish mythology with the Fianna, the term derives from groups of legendary warrior bands following Fionn mac Cumhail. Fenian today is seen as a derogatory sectarian term in Ireland to refer to Irish nationalists and/or Catholics, particularly in Northern Ireland. The term has been used similarly in Scotland as a slur to refer to Scottish Catholics or Scots with Irish ancestry. We are very proud on our Irish discovery, for this fruit bomb will keep a smile on our face throughout the Indian summer to come. Delicious with capital D!

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 274: Ballantine’s Finest
It does not hurt to go back to basics from time to time. We whisky aficionados tend to be spoiled (usually by ourselves, obviously) and overlook the whisky that made the category great: blends. So let’s give this one a go: Ballantine’s Finest, still one of the world’s bestselling Scotches.
