Lagavulin 9-Year | Game of Thrones House Lannister

Today is the big day! Game of Thrones fans are rejoicing everywhere. Last night we re-watched season 6 and enjoyed the House Lannister paring, Lagavulin 9-Year. If you followed my blog then you know that I am a big Lagavulin and Islay whisky fan. The big hope was that it would not disappoint. I can…

Ardbeg Grooves

Ardbeg Grooves is Ardbeg’s 2018 Ardbeg Day limited edition bottling released during the Islay Festival. For this bottling the whisky was matured in ex-wine casks that were charred to the point where there were grooves in the surface of the wood. Not sure if that is what initially inspired the name, but it could also…

Bowmore 17-Year Warehousemen’s Selection

Yes, it is still too warm outside for whisky but after we stuffed ourselves silly yesterday, we cranked the AC up and drank a dram of our Bowmore Warehousemen’s Selection to help ease our stomach.

Talisker Storm

Yikes, if you live in Boston or the Northeast, the words being tossed around by meteorologists in your area include: blizzard, potential historic snow amounts (what??) and storm. My first thought was, Yes Snow Day! I get to work from home tomorrow and maybe even Wednesday, sweet, I’ll take it. I felt like a kid…

Ardbeg Uigeadail

My apologies for the late post!! My Monday was absolutely hectic after the Thanksgiving break so I am making up for it today with my post. Although it was wonderful to be with family and eat all that great food, I have to say that my absolute favorite moments of the whole holiday break were,…
