Wow, it's been a while, but we're back!  It's a new year and whole new laundry list of whiskies to try! First on the list: Tamdhu 10 Year Old!

Whisky Musings #7 – Cragganmore Distiller’s Edition (12 Year Old)

No write up for this one, just a video review of the bottle of Cragganmore I picked up after my tour there last summer. Lovely spot, and definitely a wonderful tour experience, but I'm not sure that the Distiller's Edition itself is at the same level. https://youtu.be/-fuVwagWqOc

Oban 14 Year Old: Redux…

I posted a written version of the Oban review over at reddit.com/r/scotch, and I thought I would post it up here as well, cuz... why not? Oban is a town and distillery I had the opportunity to visit, and I found that the town and the spirit had a remarkably similar quality. Like the malt, … Continue reading Oban 14 Year Old: Redux…

Whisky Interlude: An Evening with the Highlands

A gift that requires me to drink Scotch?  Well, there’s worse things in life… I attended a tasting class hosted by the Summerhill location of the LCBO here in Toronto, which was focused on on Highland single malts.  They host a number of these events, scheduled by season, and focusing on topics related to wine, beer, … Continue reading Whisky Interlude: An Evening with the Highlands
