Talisker Distillers Edition – Distilled in 2002 and bottled in 2013

While we were in the west coast of France earlier this month, we arrived at our host’s father’s house and waiting for us was a massive sea food spread he had prepared.

McCarthy’s Oregon Single Malt Whiskey

Naturally, being a huge single malt fan, when the Sweet Cheeks Q bartender said she had a really good single malt whiskey from Oregon, I laughed.

A majority of whisky drinkers will tell you they know what no-age-statement (NAS) whiskies are and will probably also tell you exactly how they feel about it. It is a subject that has certainly sparked debate within the whisky community. NAS whisky is not something new; however it is a process that has become widely…
