South Boston Irish Whiskey

South Boston has very strong Irish-American heritage so it is fitting that one of the products put out by GrandTen Distilling located in South Boston, MA is an Irish whiskey. However, we all know that for Irish whiskey to be called Irish whiskey, it actually has to be made in Ireland. In order to put…

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…

Teeling Small Batch Whiskey

It’s Marathon Monday in Boston and the city is buzzing even though it’s a chilly rainy day. I do love seeing all the runners and the tourists in the city this time of year especially after what happened two years ago with the Boston Marathon bombing. Good luck to all the runners and if you…

Knob Creek Kentucky Straight Bourbon

My apologies for today’s late post and for not posting last week. These snow storms have been crazy! We’re getting another storm now as we speak. I am wondering if I somehow moved to Alaska without knowing it.  The upside, whiskey is always perfect on days like these. Today I sampled a Knob Creek Kentucky…

Triple Smoke – Corsair Distillery

What does the way you walk say about you? To be honest, I have no idea what my walk says about me, but if a study was done on the way the three guys on the Triple Smoke bottle walked, I bet it would say that those guys are pretty cool dudes. I’ll be honest;…

Gordon & MacPhail Series Post 1 of 6: Scapa 10 year-old

Nearly two weeks ago my boyfriend and I attended a Gordon & Macphail (G&M) tasting led by their lead importer Gary Kiemach at Federal Wine and Spirits here in Boston. We got a chance to taste six of their whiskies and I thought I would write about them in a series form, starting with the 10…

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…

GlenDronach 17 year-old Pedro Ximenex Sherry Puncheon

A belated Happy Father’s Day to all father’s out there. If you happen to be a whisky lover then I am certain that a nice new bottle of whisky would have been the perfect gift to celebrate the day. Now, if you are still looking for a late gift to give to a dad, then…

Arran Malt Sauternes Cask Finish and Citizens Whisky Club

There is no better way to enjoy your weekend and beat the cold than by going out and enjoying a nice dram. That is exactly what we did this past Saturday. You might already know this about me, but Citizens Public House and Oyster Bar is one of the places in the greater Boston area…

Balvenie PortWood 21 year-old

Happy Halloween! Halloween is my absolutely favorite holiday, if it can be considered a holiday. As excited as I am to pass out candy with my boyfriend this evening, I am also sleepy, tired and feeling exhausted. For all those that don’t know, I live in Boston and I am a Boston Red Sox fan….
