2015 Ardbeg Supernova Review

2015 Ardbeg Supernova Review

The 2015 Ardbeg Supernova is the 3rd Supernova release to hit the market. The first Supernova was released back in 2009 and is now a legendary whisky that fetches some insane prices at auction. 5 years after the initial release Ardbeg tested the Supernova waters again by releasing the 2014 Supernova which was good, but… Continue!

Glenlochy 17 years Cadenhead’s Authentic Review

Glenlochy 17 years Cadenhead’s Authentic Review

Glenlochy 17 year Cadenhead’s Authentic comes to us from the deceased Glenlochy Distillery.

The Black Grouse Review

The Black Grouse Review

The Black Grouse is a peated version of The Famous Grouse. Being a blend they didn’t actually peat the barley specifically used for this whisky, like with a single malt, but instead have taken fully matured Islay whisky and blended it with some Famous Grouse. Originally created for the Swedish market, The Black Grouse was… Continue!

The Famous Grouse Review

The Famous Grouse Review

It’s an incredible coincidence that I’m reviewing The Famous Grouse at the same time I’m reading Hugh Laurie’s The Gun Seller. The main character, Lang, has a scene in the book where, after a particularly long and brutal day, he pours himself a glass of Famous Grouse and then proceeds to water it down to… Continue!
