Royal Lochnagar 12-Year | Game of Thrones House Baratheon

Royal Lochnagar, now here is a whisky I have never had before and I believe (anyone out there can correct me if I am wrong), it’s not a whisky sold in the US. This whisky was paired up with House Baratheon because of the royal connection. King Robert Baratheon once sat in the Iron Throne…

Edradour Caledonia 12 Year-Old

Edradour is a whisky brand I don’t always gravitate towards. While at the liquor store I stumbled across a small 50 ml bottle of the Edradour Caledonia 12 Year-Old and I thought why not, lets give it a world.

Glenmorangie Nectar D’Or

Whenever I think of sweet whiskies one of the first brand that comes to mind is Glenmorangie. Most of the Glenmorangie whiskies I’ve tasted have been on the sweeter side and this Nectar D’Or is no exception. For this expression Glenmorangie starts the maturing process in bourbon casks and finishes the process in Sauternes casks….

Glengoyne 10 year-old

Glengoyne is a Highlands whisky brand I have never written about before, so here is a short and sweet review. George Connell started the whisky brand in secret back in 1820. Proper legal license was not acquired until 1833 and it wasn’t till 1907 that the official name changed to Glengoyne from Glenguin of Burnfoot….

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…
