The Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve

The Glenlivet 12 year-old is one of my go to everyday drinking whiskies. The name Glenlivet speaks for itself. So when I heard that Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve is slowly replacing the 12 year-old, I was taken a back. No, this is not a Halloween prank (for those that didn’t know), it’s happening. Founder’s Reserve was…

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…

I will fight all temptations and will try to refrain from participating in Cyber Monday. If you however can’t, I wanted to give you another whisky to consider if you are looking…

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…
