Whistlepig Farmstock Rye Review

Whistlepig Farmstock Rye Review

Whistlepig Farmstock Rye is the first major market release WhistlePig has put out, though it’s not entirely their own whiskey. It’s a blend of their own young and rough spirit with some mid-range aged Canadian rye and some older Canadian rye. It’s a scenario that High West has managed to pull off quite well in… Continue!

The New MGP Mashbills Have Turned Four

The New MGP Mashbills Have Turned Four

A little over 4 years ago (April of 2013) MGP announced they had started distilling 6 new mashbills. This is significant because they now have stock that’s over 4 years of age and it’s going to be more attractive to NDPs who may or may not be forthcoming about where it comes from. I wouldn’t… Continue!

GR Sharpe Old Style Whiskey Review

GR Sharpe Old Style Whiskey Review

G.R. Sharpe Old Style Whiskey is a pre-prohibition whiskey distilled by the Harry Wilken Distillery who started up during the whiskey expansion of the early 20th century and was condemned to death, like so many others, by prohibition. Only living from 1906 – 1919 this little distillery didn’t have much of a chance to show what… Continue!

Heaven Hill Bottled In Bond Review

Heaven Hill Bottled In Bond Review

Heaven Hill Bottled In Bond is the same whiskey that goes in to Evan Williams Bonded, but it ’s aged for 6 years instead of the customary 4 years. This whiskey is known to loose its age statement now and then when stocks run low, but it’s a fairly reliable whiskey so long as you… Continue!

Kavalan Single Malt Review

Kavalan Single Malt Review

Kavalan Single Malt is the base offering from the scorchingly hot Kavalan distillery. A distillery that seems to be getting talked about on a near weekly basis over the last year and a half – and for good reason; they’re awesome. They put out great whisky and they deserve the recognition they’re getting. They take… Continue!

Booker’s Bourbon Tommy’s Batch Review

Booker’s Bourbon Tommy’s Batch Review

Booker’s Bourbon Tommy’s Batch is the first Booker’s batch of 2017 and thankfully it does’t carry a $100+ price tag like they had originally planned. The price on it has gone up a bit, but not the astronomical, nearly-double, that was originally proposed before everyone on the internet lost their collective shit, myself included, about… Continue!

Malt Nuts: Miltonduff Tasting

Malt Nuts: Miltonduff Tasting

Another Malt Nuts meeting came and went and this time our tasting target was Miltonduff who up until now I think I’ve only had once before in my life. A core component of Ballantine’s it’s not a whisky that gets a lot of press or fanfare in the single malt arena, but I guess that’s why… Continue!

Old Blowhard Bourbon Review

Old Blowhard Bourbon Review

Old Blowhard Bourbon was one of the original Orphan Barrel releases. A program put together by Diageo that I have some serious issues with because of all the unnecessary layers of marketing BS they drape over whiskey that should speak for itself. For instance how cool is it that this came from the old Heaven Hill… Continue!

1952 Weller Reserve Review

1952 Weller Reserve Review

1952 Weller Reserve hails from the venerable Stitzel-Weller distillery whose whiskies have become an obscenely hot commodity over the last couple of years. This particular bottle was opened at a gathering of Los Angeles whiskey nerds where we did what you’re supposed to do with bottles like this… drink them. Imagine that. In that evening… Continue!

High West Bourye Limited Sighting Review

High West Bourye Limited Sighting Review

High West Bourye Limited Sighting is the 2017 edition of High West’s Bourye whiskey which combines bourbon and rye – hence the name. Based on the bottle code breakdown I laid out in the Bourye 2015 release review we know this particular bottle of the Bourye Limited Sighting was bottled on the 9th of January… Continue!
