Uuahouua Sherry Wood Single Malt Review

Uuahouua Sherry Wood Single Malt Review

Uuahouua Sherry Wood Single Malt is a single malt whisky from Austria that spends a bit of time in sherry casks. Looking at the color it couldn’t have been aged in sherry casks for the entire time, but was likely finished in sherry casks. Aged for 7 years it tastes a bit young and spirity,…

Kikori Rice Whiskey Review

Kikori Rice Whiskey Review

Kikori Rice Whiskey is actually just aged Shochu which is exactly what the Fukano whiskies are as well. The process for making shochu is a bit different than the process for making traditional malt, corn or rye based whisky in a few key areas. For starters shochu is made using distilled rice, sweet potatoes or…

Michel Couvreur Blossoming Auld Sherried Review

Michel Couvreur Blossoming Auld Sherried Review

The Michel Couvreur Blossoming Auld Sherried is a wonderful sherried whisky that is bursting with character which is fitting because it comes from one heck of a character. The guys at K&L already did a great job of writing up his story so I’m just going to edit it down for length and let them…

UUahouua Pinot Noir Single Malt Review

UUahouua Pinot Noir Single Malt Review

UUahouua Pinot Noir Single Malt comes to us from Austria. They distill the whisky (WIESky) themselves and then age it and finish it in Pinot Noir barrels for this expression. According to the translated version of their site the “storage is classic in sherry and port casks, in red and Süßweinfässern, as well as in…

Yamazaki 18 Review

Yamazaki 18 Review

Yamazaki 18 doesn’t really exist any more. Like all of the other age-stated Japanese whiskies it’s pretty much done for and the only way to really find a bottle is via an auction, high-priced specialty store or a private seller. It’s aged for at least 18 years in ex-bourbon casks, ex-sherry casks and Mizunara casks….

Taketsuru 21 Review

Taketsuru 21 Review

Taketsuru 21 is a blend of two different single malts; Miyagikyo and Yoichi. Traditionally Yoichi is seen as a more powerful, more masculine malt and Miyagikyo is seen as a more subtle, more feminine malt. To make this whisky the folks at Nikka would select the best 21+ year old casks from Yoichi and Miyagikyo…

G. Rozelieures Tourbe Review

G. Rozelieures Tourbe Review

G. Rozelieures Tourbe is the latest addition to the G. Rozelieures Whisky de Lorraine single malt lineup and is the most heavily peated of the bunch. They’re all peated, but the rest of the collections like the Rare, Origine and even the Fume are peated to a noticeably lesser degree. This additional peat isn’t the…

Chichibu Chibidaru Review

Chichibu Chibidaru Review

Chichibu Chibidaru is the the quarter cask style of whisky released from the Chichibu distillery. Which, by the way, is one of the funnest distillery names to say. Seriously, try saying it out loud. Chee chee boo… chee chee boo… chee chee boo… anyways. The type of quarter casks the Chibidaru was aged in are hogsheads…

G. Rozelieures Rare Review

G. Rozelieures Rare Review

G. Rozelieures Rare is lightly peated like all their other whiskies. It’s also aged in sherry casks like almost all the others and is additionally aged in cognac casks like the Origine. What makes it rare is the additional time spent finishing in ex-Sauturnes casks. This additional aging in a third type of grape-based-booze cask also brings with…

Chichibu The First Review

Chichibu The First Review

Carrying the more formal name Ichiro’s Malt Chichibu The First, this is the first aged whisky put out by Ichiro Akuto whose family has been producing sake for more than 300 years. Before Ichiro, his grand-dad founded the Hanyu distillery which…
