30 year old The MacPhail’s Collection from Tamdhu Distillery

What’s sweeter than the Thursday before a long weekend (knowing that I will be working from home tomorrow) and bolder than the red denim jeans I am wearing right now, well talking about a 30 year old whisky is. There is no better way to kick off this holiday weekend than by talking about The…

Ledaig 10 year old

To start this last week of August (so hard to believe), I am taking you back to the Islands of Scotland with a Ledaig 10 from the Isle of Mull on the west coast side of the country. This whisky is produced at the Tobermory distillery and it is the only distillery in the island….

Thank you for all the visits to the blog!!

After a great weekend with loved ones I got a chance to look at my blog stats. It has been a little over two months now that I started writing my whisky blog. With that said I wanted to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, and THANK YOU!!! The amount of support I’ve received from all…

Chill-Filtration

If you’ve ever picked up a bottle of whisky that read non chill-filtered and didn’t know what it was, no worries my post today will hopefully help explain it. As I am far from a technical person, I wanted to provide a simple, quick, non-technical explanation everyone could understand, if they didn’t know already. For…

The Dalmore 12

Ah Monday’s! If you had to drag yourself out of bed this morning and are now drinking a giant cup of coffee then we are in the same boat. Monday’s are extremely difficult to get into especially after a nice weekend. To cheer you up and put a smile on your face I have these…

Springbank 15 year old and whisky regions

Excitement was what I felt when I first saw this single malt labeled on the menu. Ordering a Springbank would mean that I would have officially tried a Scotch whisky from all 6 Scotch whisky regions. For those non whisky drinkers there are technically 6 regions. I’ve listed those regions below along with the whiskies…

Redbreast 12 Cask Strength

Let’s be honest, in my lifetime of whisky drinking I’ve mainly gone ahead and reached for that Scotch whisky. I was never much of an Irish whiskey drinker until Green Spot and now Redbreast made an appearance in my life. These two whiskies have completely shown me what I was missing out in Irish whiskey….

My whisky night!

The things I enjoy to do in the weekend! I do enjoy all this research I do for you all. Happy weekend! Cheers!

Macallan 12

One of joys of whisky is that you can share a dram with a person and chances are that person will get a different whisky tasting experience than you will. Everyone has a different pallet so when it comes to deciphering the tastes in a brand of whisky not everyone will taste the same notes….

Glenfiddich 21

If you’ve ever visited the Glenfiddich website you will notice that one of the site banners indicates that it is “The world’s most awarded single malt,” http://www.glenfiddich.com/. And if you aren’t a whisky drinker you first initial thought is to roll your eyes because you feel they are trying to get you to drink their…

Dark Horse Distillery Reserve Bourbon Whiskey

Although I’ve had bourbon before and very much enjoy it, since starting this blog I have yet to write about an actual bourbon tasting. I am very excited to be changing that today and doing it with bourbon I had never heard about. To me trying a brand I’ve never heard about is always a…
