Laphroaig Cairdeas 2015

Ah, Laphroaig is a brand I truly do enjoy and this 2015 Cairdeas was no exception. For those not familiar with Laphroaig, it is an Islay whisky and each year they release a limited Cairdeas edition (“Cairdeas” means friendship in Gaelic). The 2015 edition crafted by Master Distiller John Campbell was released at the 2015…

Ardbeg Corryvreckan

I was under the impression that my last post was a month ago but I realize that it’s been way longer than that. Sorry for the delay, it’s been a busy two months but I am back! For today’s post I am going back to one of my favorite brands, Ardbeg. Ardbeg’s Corryvreckan (named after…

Kilchoman Port Cask Matured

Kilchoman Distillery is a small and young distillery first established back in 2005. They are the first distillery to open its door on the Island of Islay in 124 years. So far, I’ve had two of their whiskies, Machir Bay, which was quite impressive, and most recently and what this post is about, the Port…

Bowmore Small Batch Single Malt

Bowmore has always had a special place in my heart. It’s the very first Scotch I ever fell in love with. I have a list of favorites now, but I think you never truly forget that first whisky that made you smile. I don’t think I have ever tasted a Bowmore whisky that I have…

Bruichladdich Rocks

It’s the Monday morning after daylights saving time, so if you are like me, you are probably trying to adjust to the time change and are still trying to wake up from the weekend. The chilly crisp weather certainly doesn’t make it easier, but the thought of a new fresh day and week is pretty…

Ardbeg 10 year old

Let me start by saying that Ardbeg is one of my very favorite Single malt Scotch whiskies. The first time I tried Ardbeg I was in San Diego about 2 years ago attending a friend’s wedding. While out at a whisky bar I wanted to try something smoky and different, so the bartender suggested Ardbeg….
