Ardbeg Scorch

As part of the Islay Festival of Music and Malt (Fèis Ìle) Ardbeg has released their Ardbeg Day Limited edition and this one is truly on fire. Ardbeg Scorch pays homage to the dragon folk tale that once lived not only in Islay, but in Ardbeg’s Dunnage Warehouse 3. The whisky is matured in ex-bourbon…

Chivas Regal 13-year Manchester United Special Edition

This Manchester United edition not only celebrates Sir Alex Ferguson but, the 13 league titles won under his management. For this edition they took their 13 year house style blend and finish it in American Rye Cask. I was able to get this whisky through my Flaviar membership. However, this is not an expensive whisky…

Arrrrrrrdbeg Committee Release

No, the 7 R’s isn’t a misspelling but rather a pirates way to say Ardbeg. Before I get into the whisky let me clarify, yes this is a Ardbeg Committee release, however it’s not the yearly committee release from the Islay Whisky Festival. That 2021 bottle has yet to drop. Arrrrrrrdbeg was released to celebrate…

The Glenlivet Enigma

The definition of an enigma: mysterious, puzzling or difficult to understand. Today we raise a glass to Robert Burns on Burns Day with this Enigma. Glenlivet’s Enigma comes in a beautiful matte black bottle with a puzzle display in the front. They encourage you to solve the puzzle and share with them. It’s a no-age-statement…

Highland Park Cask Strength Edition No. 1

I’ve always been a huge fan of Highland Park. So much so that when we visited Scotland about three years ago, this was one of the distilleries we visited. This Edition No. 1 is the first in a new series from Highland Park. The whisky is predominantly matured in sherry seasoned American oak casks (of…

Jura Journey

I’ve always been a Single Malt Scotch drinker; however, I classify 2020 as the year I drank/ventured more into American Whiskey than ever before. Wanting a little bit more of that Islay Peat after the Bruichladdich tasting, I picked up this bottle at the very affordable price of $34.99. I’ve always been a fan of…

Bruichladdich Whisky Tasting

COVID has completely changed the way we normally live our lives. Checking my email one morning last week I noticed Norfolk Wine and Spirits put together a Bruichladdich tasting. Was this another Zoom meeting with samples? Because, if you’ve been to one, you’ve been to them all! HOWEVER, this one was in person (socially distanced…

Glenmorangie A Tale of Cake Single Malt Whisky

Now you can not only have your cake but… you can drink it to. And, before I get into the whisky let me say, bravo Glenmorangie the packaging is beautiful. For this bottle, I stood in the middle of the aisle asking myself, do I really need it? Part of me said no, while the…

Mini Whisky Reviews on Instagram

I know, I know, it’s been a very long time since I’ve posted an actual blog. I am truly sorry about that but, I’ve not stopped writing about whisky, I’ve just been taking a different approach to my content and that has been done via Instagram. No, I will not quit my blog but I…

Glenmorangie Single Malt Scotch Dinner

Ah, another whisky dinner… although this dinner was not just simply a whisky dinner, this one was special. This past weekend we attended the Glenmorangie Single Malt Scotch dinner at the Boston Omni Parker House. It was a special dinner because it was Frank Weber’s last whisky dinner. Sadly, for us, but amazing for him,…
