Deanston Virgin Oak Review

Deanston Virgin Oak Review

Deanston Virgin Oak is the first time I’ve really sat down and explored a Deanston whisky over an extended period of time… and I liked it. Though to be upfront I didn’t care for it on my first taste. I thought it was just ok, thought it was a rather standard Speyside so I forgot… Continue!

Blood Oath Pact 3 Review

Blood Oath Pact 3 Review

Blood Oath Pact 3 is a blend of different bourbons like Blood Oath Pact 1 and Blood Oath Pact 2 though with two major differences. First there is no wheated (rebel yell) bourbon to be found in the Blood Oath Pact 3, all three bourbons use rye as their secondary grain making this a more… Continue!

Minor Case Rye Review

Minor Case Rye Review

Minor Case Rye is a two-year-old MGP rye whiskey (95/5) that’s been finished in sherry casks to round out the rough edges and give it a different kind of sweetness and spice that’s not normally found in a 2 year rye. In Limestone Branch’s Words: Minor Case Rye “In our release, Minor Case Whiskey, we… Continue!

S.P. Lancaster Medicinal Pint Review

S.P. Lancaster Medicinal Pint Review

There isn’t a lot of information online about the S.P. Lancaster Medicinal Pint or the distillery it came from so I don’t actually have a lot to say up here. In-fact the only information I have is that the Lancaster distillery was built in 1881 near Bardstown, KY and was never re-opened after prohibition. A… Continue!

Malt Nuts: Ledaig Tasting Part 2

Malt Nuts: Ledaig Tasting Part 2

  On the eve of its closing the Malt Nuts rallied to eat, drink and conquer Ledaig… again. This time we focused on older expressions and sherried expressions of Ledaig this evening. We’d already tasted a bunch of young cask strength Tobermory and Ledaig so we had to move it up a notch. We also… Continue!

Garrison Bros Cowboy Bourbon Review

Garrison Bros Cowboy Bourbon Review

Garrison Bros Cowboy Bourbon is the uncut, longer aged, limited edition version of the Garrison Bros. Bourbon. If you’re not familiar with Garrison you definitely should get to know them as they’re currently one of the hottest / major craft bourbon makers on the market today and their single barrel bottles often retail in the… Continue!

Blanton’s Gold Review

Blanton’s Gold Review

Blanton’s Gold is one of Blanton’s (Buffalo Trace) international single barrel offerings. Aside from the regular Blanton’s Bourbon available here in the USA there’s three other international offerings available in the global market. This, the Blanton’s Gold Edition, a green label Special Reserve (40%) and a Straight from the Barrel which is un-cut and minimally… Continue!

Penna Dutch Malt Whiskey Review

Penna Dutch Malt Whiskey Review

Penna Dutch Malt Whiskey is the new flagship release from the relatively young New Liberty Distillery and is made from 100% malted barley done in the Munich style. This means the malt has received a bit darker of a roast than might otherwise be done which is more of a beer approach to the treatment of… Continue!

Redbreast Lustau Review

Redbreast Lustau Review

Redbreast Lustau is the latest release from Redbreast and it brings with it something new and different. Aged for a total of 10 years it’s the youngest release of the Redbreast line, yet it’s not something to sneeze at because one full year of that aging happens in a sherry cask. In Midleton’s Words: Redbreast… Continue!

Writer’s Tears Irish Whiskey Review

Writer’s Tears Irish Whiskey Review

Writer’s Tears Irish Whiskey is a brilliant whiskey… I just wish that it was fuller and richer and they messed with it less. A combination of rich, buttery, fruity and copper Irish Single Malt and Single Pot Still whiskey it’s a thing of beauty. Truly, it is… or at least it could be. In Walsh… Continue!
