Chivas Regal Extra and 18 year-old

I’m a bit late with my post today and I am sorry about that, it has been a busy start of the week with Thanksgiving just a few days away. I recently got the chance to taste two whiskies from the Chivas range, Chivas Regal Extra (newest member of their range) and Chivas Regal 18…

Tasty and Affordable Rye: Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye

When I think of rye whisky, Crown Royal is definitely not a brand I think about. That changed this past weekend when in conversation with Frank from the Omni Parker. He shared with us that his current favorite rye was Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye. I think both my boyfriend and I laughed when we…

Women Who Whiskey – Boston Chapter

One of the scariest things to do, in my opinion, is to attend an event where no one knows your name. Walking into my first Women Who Whiskey event was terrifying. The room was full of women in conversation, they were laughing and having a good time. In a bit of a panic I began…

Old St. Andrews Clubhouse blended Scotch whisky

Not too long ago while out shopping with my boyfriend, he spotted a miniature bottle of Old St. Andrews Clubhouse blended whisky and off course, he bought it for me so I can write about it.  One of my boyfriends dream is to one-day play golf with his buddies at the St. Andrews Golf Course…

Nikka – Taketsuru 12 year-old Pure Malt

It was back in February of this year that I was first introduced to the Japanese whisky, Nikka Coffey Grain and let me tell you, Japanese whiskies still continue to impress me. The Nikka Coffey Grain is by far one of my favorite Japanese whiskies, however most recently I had the 12 year-old Taketsuru Pure…

Chivas Regal 12 year-old

After getting back home from a weekend off in Newport, RI with a great friend and her husband I finally got a chance to try Chivas Regal. Although I had heard about Chivas before and have been drinking whisky for years now, it was a brand I had not gotten around to tasting.  Finally getting…

Dalmore Cigar Malt Reserve

I am not a cigar smoker or a smoker at all. I smoked a cigarette once in my early 20’s and then recall crying about smoking that one cigarette. It might have been the alcohol that contributed to my crying, but nonetheless I knew then that smoking was definitely not for me. The upside, you…

Cadenhead Creations 20 year-old Sherry-Aged Blend

Happy start of the World Cup day! If you are as much a sports fan as I am, then my eyes as well as yours will all be on Brazil for the next month or so. As excited as I am about the World Cup, I am also excited to be talking about a 20…

Dimple Pinch 15 year-old

Monday is here already, but where did the weekend go? Unfortunately I am completely unprepared for it and I am sadly posting late, my apologies. Now in a “pinch” to write my post, I found a great blended whisky to talk about and that is, Dimple Pinch 15… yes, pun intended. I am not entirely…

Dewar’s White Label (blended Scotch whisky)

Whether you are a Scotch whisky drinker or not, I am certain you might have seen  the major advertising campaign by Dewar’s Scotch Whisky. Some of the ads are certainly in poor taste. I first tried Dewar’s a couple years ago. To refresh my memory last night I got a mini bottle to make sure…
