Gordon and MacPhail Series Post 3 of 6: Glenlivet 15 year-old

We are just two days away from holiday! I am almost done with my shopping list and I am definitely looking forward to spending time with family, but also, having a few days away from work. Today I am going to post my third post on my Gordon & MacPhail (G&M) whisky series. The first…

The Balvenie DoubleWood 17 year-old

It’s the Monday before Thanksgiving and although I’m not entirely certain I’ve acquired all the ingredients I need for our Thursday meal, I am certain about the fact that the whisky I am going to talk about today, is absolutely fantastic.

The Glenlivet 15-year-old French Oak Reserve

When I first started this blog I knew I would eventually have to write about a whisky I didn’t love. To be honest I’ve been holding out on writing about The Glenlivet 15-year-old French Oak Reserve for that very reason. This range of The Glenlivet was given to me as a Christmas gift by my…
