Old Scout Bourbon 10 years Review – Bottled for Lukas liquor

Old Scout Bourbon 10 years Review – Bottled for Lukas liquor

Here we go with another Single Cask Old Scout Bourbon from Smooth Ambler Spirits. I’m excited to get to try this whiskey because I’ve liked so many of their releases in the past. Though being a single cask release, I have no idea what to expect because each cask of whisky is like a snowflake; no two are alike….

Orphan Barrel Rhetoric 20 years Review

Orphan Barrel Rhetoric 20 years Review

Of the releases to-date the Orphan Barrel Rhetoric 20 years is my favorite and the 21 yr release that will be coming out later this year is even better! But let’s not get ahead of ourselves since we have many months to go before that one graces us with it’s presence. This release, the Rhetoric…

Old Scout Bourbon 8 years Review – Bottled Exclusively for Randall’s Wines and Spirits

Old Scout Bourbon 8 years Review – Bottled Exclusively for Randall’s Wines and Spirits

Old Scout Bourbon is put out by Smooth Ambler Spirits who is a Merchant Bottler (NDP) and it is so very cool that they do not try to hide the fact they source their juice from other distilleries. Why is that? Because even if they do not make it they manage to source and bottle great bourbon! We…

Orphan Barrel Barterhouse Review

Orphan Barrel Barterhouse Review

When the Orphan Barrel Barterhouse came out Diageo was claiming that they “found” these barrels in Stitzel Weller and didn’t know where they came from. That ruse lasted about 2 seconds on the internet as folks like Chuck Cowdery picked up the scent of misinformation and ran with it. The long and short of it…

Faultline Blended Scotch Whisky – 2015 Review

Faultline Blended Scotch Whisky – 2015 Review

Faultline Blended Scotch is K&L’s very own proprietary blended scotch they worked out with Douglas Laing & Co. This blend is unique in that it has a high quantity of malt (well over 50% from what I hear) that puts it way above the blended industry averages of 20-40%. This keeps the whisky from picking…

Orphan Barrel Lost Prophet

Orphan Barrel Lost Prophet

Orphan Barrel Lost Prophet is 22 year old juice from the George T Stagg distillery and it is NOT pappy juice. Pappy comes from BT’s wheated mashbill and this contains no wheat. This is BT’s traditional mashbill and is what’s in the George T Stagg and Eagle Rare releases. If you’re looking for a comparison…

An Audacious Aultmore Tasting With The Malt Nuts

If you’re a frequent reader of this little ole whisky blog then you might have noticed that I’ve attended several Malt Nuts tastings recently. It all started with Talisker a few months back and then last month I was asked back to a Glen Elgin tasting, which was awesome, and then last week I was…

Fairly recently K&L got in 2 exclusive, and amazing, Glenfarclas whiskies along with an exclusive 17 year old Cask Strength Benrinnes (Single Malt Whisky Society 36.82).

Ancnoc Rutter Review

Ancnoc Rutter Review

Ancnoc Rutter is my favorite of the two peated NAS Ancnocs I’ve been able to try recently. Like the Flaughter, the Rutter is actually distilled by the Knockdhu distillery who has eschewed the more common convention of naming their whiskies after the distillery and instead giving them the moniker Ancnoc. In addition to the Rutter…
