Part 1 of my 4 part review/comparison series of 12 Year Old blends! Duncan Taylor 12 is certainly affordable, but is it any good?Read More Whisky Musings – Duncan Taylor 12 Year Old Blended Scotch Review
Here we go again with another expensive but (possibly) delicious whiskey: HP21!Read More Whiskies I’ll Never Own #3 – Highland Park 21
Deanston 10 PX Finish – 57.5% ABV – $79.95 (LCBO) Ok, I’ll up be up front with this one… It’s probably not going to be to everyone’s taste, but it’s definitely in the wheelhouse of my palate. It’s a BIG sherry influence, and if you don’t like that or you don’t like sweeter whiskies, this […]Read More Whisky Musings – Deanston 10 PX finish review
Benromach Sassicaia Wood Finish (Speyside) – 45% ABV – $100.15 (LCBO) This is one that both intrigued and kind of scared me a bit. Intrigued me because I just really love Benromach’s stuff in general, but scared me because I haven’t cared for the scotches I’ve had in the past that tried to marry any […]Read More Whisky Musings – Benromach Sassicaia Wood Finish Review
Aberlour A’bunadh Batch 53 (Speyside) – 59.5% ABV – $99.95 (LCBO) Nose: Nosed neat this is a dram that will come at you hard. Not purely alcohol, but big, fruity, sherry notes. Big notes of cherry, plum and raisins complemented by a lively honey and toffee sweetness. Recommend taking down the ABV with a […]Read More Whisky Musings – Aberlour A’bunadh Review
Glenfarclas 12 (Speyside) – 43% ABV – $74.95 (LCBO) Nose: Full and fruity, and fresh in a way that reminds me of a glade or orchard after a rainfall. Red currants, raisins, slight strawberry, are joined by notes of grapes and pears. That freshness comes through as something vegetal, like damp grass or wild […]Read More Whisky Musings – Glenfarclas 12 Review
Penderyn Aur Cymru (Welsh) – 46% ABV – NAS Nose: This is a noticeably young whisky, with an exceptionally sweet nose. Honey, toffee, and sweet fresh fruits jump out. Honeydew melon, under-ripe peach, and green grapes come to mind. The Madeira finish is very present here, with everything you would expect from a sweet […]Read More Whisky Musings – Penderyn Aur Cymru Review (Welsh whisky!)
Here we are, part FOUR of my three-part Glengoyne vertical distillery review! Sigh. What is it they say about the best laid plans of mice and men? I didn’t think I would be able to get my hands on this bottle, so I moved ahead with my Glengoyne reviews, and no sooner did I finish […]Read More Whisky Musings – Glengoyne 15 Review
Stupid summer schedule… It’s taken far, far too long, but here at last is the third and final installment of my Glengoyne review trilogy! (I had a wee bit of technical difficulty with this one, so please forgive any sound/video hiccup) Glengoyne 18 Year Old (Highland) – 43% ABV – $169.40 CAD (LCBO) Nose: […]Read More Glengoyne 18 Year Old Review
Quick confession here… I’m a big fan of Glengoyne.
To that end, I wanted to do three consecutive reviews of Glengoyne whiskies.
This is the first: their entry level 10 year old.Read More Glengoyne 10 Year Old Review
