Springbank 10-year

Springbank is a distillery I have not spoken much about on my blog. It is located in Campbeltown and is the only distillery that produces three different single malts, Springbank, Hazelburn and Longrow. If that isn’t hard enough, they also malt 100% of their barley using the traditional floor malting method. But let me be…

Ardbeg Kelpie

Yes, I’ve not posted in a while, but it’s summer and with the warm weather I’ve not been drinking as much whisky as I’d like. We did however add a new whisky to our collection that I must share my thoughts on it, and that is, Ardbeg’s Kelpie. Initially I thought the name was just…

Aberfeldy 21-Year

It’s official, my boyfriend and I are going to Scotland this fall. We plan to drive around the country visiting as many distilleries as possible. If any of you have ideas on must see places let me know, just drop your thoughts down in the comments section. Who knows, maybe Aberfeldy will be one of…

Port Charlotte 10 year 2nd Edition

Port Charlotte is not only a village 2 miles south of Bruichladdich; it is also what Bruichladdich decided to name their heavily peated line. It pays homage to the once working but now silent Lochindaal distillery, which produce whisky for about one hundred years. The Port Charlotte 10 year 2nd edition is one of six…

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…

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…

The Glenrothes: Bourbon Cask,Vintage and Sherry Cask Reserve

Glenrothes is a Speyside whisky I have never written about so when I saw a trio sample of their Bourbon Cask Reserve, Vintage Reserve and Sherry Cask Reserve, buying it was a no brainer. And if you think you’ve never tried anything from them either but have tried Cutty Sark before, then you’ve tried it……

Lagavulin 12 YO (2014 Special Release)

A couple weeks ago I wrote about Lagavulin 8 years, so I thought it fitting to write about the 12 year-old 2014 special release this week since I’ve never written about it before and it’s a newly acquire whisky bottle that was added to my collection. The Lagavulin 12 year-old 2014 special release is the…

Bowmore 17 YO White Sands

I think I say this all the time but I will say it again, Bowmore has always had a special place in my heart. It was the first single malt I tasted when I began venturing into Scotch and it was also the first Scotch I fell in love with. No surprise that I picked…

Lagavulin 8 year-old 200th Anniversary Edition

Sorry it’s been a while since my last post. I was on vacation traveling with my friend Melissa. We took about 10 days to visit Berlin, Germany and Prague, Czech Republic. We had an amazing time! It was while in Germany that I saw and picked up this Lagavulin 8 year-old produced for their 200th…

Jura 16 Year-Old

The Jura 16 year-old is called Diurach, which in Gaelic means “People of Jura”. The Isle of Jura is part of Scotland’s west coast islands. It is matured in American White Oak for about 14 years and then finished it’s last two years in ex-Amoroso Oloroso sherry casks. I like this whisky; it is smooth,…
