A Midwinter Night’s Dram (Act 4) Review

To paraphrase Mark Twain, the reports of my temperance have been greatly exaggerated! For the better part of winter, a busy work schedule has kept me from blogging, but I've been missing it a lot. Plus, I've had this guy pointing out my blog neglect and guilting me back into it. Okay, I might be … [Read More...]

Glen Scotia Victoriana Review

The Thanksgiving season is always so much fun, but it's also a time when it can be pretty darn hard to get anything done. Between travel, family visits, and extra work obligations, many things I want to work on can easily fall by the wayside. And recently, this poor blog has gotten a bit of neglect! … [Read More...]

Amaro Montenegro Review

Amari pretty darn big right now, and I’m a huge fan. Bittersweet, rich, soothing. Just the thing to sip after dinner on a cool fall evening. However, not all Amari are created equal. In fact, if you try a bunch, there’s a huge variety of flavors out there; from the intense, bitter, and herbal to the … [Read More...]

In all seriousness, it’s no secret that I’m a big fan of High West’s whiskies. I’ve said in multiple … [Read More...]

Great King Street Glasgow Blend

Happy National Scotch Day everybody! In honor of a “holiday” I can really get behind, I dug out a bottle that I think represents the way whisky production should be done. Yes, it’s a blend. But those of you who have read my previous reviews (or have tried a Compass Box product yourselves) … [Read More...]

Camp Robber Review

After an extended hiatus, it's good to be back! Even though I haven't had the opportunity to post lately, I've been trying plenty of new things and taking copious notes, so I have plenty of whisk(e)y reviews lined up for the coming weeks. But for now,  in the immortal words of Monty Python’s Flying … [Read More...]

High West Light Whiskey Review

So, you may have noticed that it's been a while since my last post. Unfortunately, the "real world" (i.e., paying work) has been keeping me extra busy, but thankfully things are easing up just in time for summer. And just in time for the coming warm weather, I've gotten my hands on  a new whiskey … [Read More...]

High West Bourye Review

If you've been following my blog for a while, you've probably gotten a sense of some of the things I love. Among the many are 1) Fun, unique whiskies, 2) MGP Ryes, and 3) Product transparency. Today, I have the pleasure of reviewing a whiskey that hits all three of these: High West Bourye. As a … [Read More...]
