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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

High West Bourye 2015 Release Review

High West Bourye 2015 Release Review

I picked up this High West Bourye 2015 Release early last year and kept meaning to do a SBS between it and the original Bourye batch 2 I have, but just never got around to it. Then the good folks at High West reached out and sent me a bottle of the 2017 batch (reviewing…

Alberta Dark Batch Rye Review

Alberta Dark Batch Rye Review

Alberta Dark Batch Rye is unique, it’s interesting, it’s tasty and probably most importantly it’s something that even our lax US TTB would never approve to be called a rye. Made from 91% Canadian rye (blend of a 12 year and a 6 year), 8% Bourbon (Old Grand-Dad) and 1% sherry. This isn’t just something wholly new…

Bastille 1789 Blended Whisky Review

Bastille 1789 Blended Whisky Review

Sometimes a brand will reach out to me about a review I did a while ago and ask me to try their latest version; this Bastille 1789 Blended Whisky review is one such occasion. You can find my original Bastille French Whisky review here and I recommend reading it to see how much different the…

1950s Ballantine’s 17 Years Review

1950s Ballantine’s 17 Years Review

Yesterday we tried some Ballantine’s from the 1980s and today we’re trying some early 1950s Ballantine’s 17 Years. Being a whisky from around 1957, and being 17 years old, means that all single malt and grain components are from 1940 or earlier. Though due to WW2 it’s possible much of the whisky in here is…
