Midleton Very Rare 2015

Time is going by too quickly as we wave good-bye to Halloween. If you happen to go out and celebrate this past weekend, I hope you all had a great time at your Halloween celebrations. I’ll be sharing a picture of my costume at the end of the post. November 3, which is tomorrow, happens…

Finding Ardbog

I know it’s been nearly 4 weeks since my last post. I took a little hiatus from writing but am back and wanted to share with everyone an absolutely amazing find I stumbled across during the 4th of July weekend. I first wrote about Ardbog by Ardbeg back in November of last year http://wp.me/p3Zt2k-1t. Although…

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…

Pappy Meal – Old Rip Van Winkle 10 year

I felt like a kid in a candy store when I first walked into Citizen Public House for their Pappy Meal Monday. It is moments like these that remind me of one of the reasons why I started this blog, and that was to have fun. You better believe that I had fun with this…

Glenfiddich 18 year-old

How is it that I have not been sick all winter but on the first week of Spring I come down with a bug that just won’t go away. Even when I am sick I am always on the go. Yesterday I powered through a Boston Celtics basketball game and I still managed to get…

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….

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…

Jura Prophecy

My first attraction to this whisky was the bottle and packaging. It was one of things that caught my eye when I walked by the aisle, along with having seen the name before in the 2013 program of the Islay festival of music and malt. I had recently viewed the festivals information as a trip…
