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…

The Glenrothes: Bourbon Cask,Vintage and Sherry Cask Reserve

Glenrothes is a Speyside whisky I have never written about so when I saw a trio sample of their Bourbon Cask Reserve, Vintage Reserve and Sherry Cask Reserve, buying it was a no brainer. And if you think you’ve never tried anything from them either but have tried Cutty Sark before, then you’ve tried it……

Lagavulin 12 YO (2014 Special Release)

A couple weeks ago I wrote about Lagavulin 8 years, so I thought it fitting to write about the 12 year-old 2014 special release this week since I’ve never written about it before and it’s a newly acquire whisky bottle that was added to my collection. The Lagavulin 12 year-old 2014 special release is the…

Bowmore 17 YO White Sands

I think I say this all the time but I will say it again, Bowmore has always had a special place in my heart. It was the first single malt I tasted when I began venturing into Scotch and it was also the first Scotch I fell in love with. No surprise that I picked…

Lagavulin 8 year-old 200th Anniversary Edition

Sorry it’s been a while since my last post. I was on vacation traveling with my friend Melissa. We took about 10 days to visit Berlin, Germany and Prague, Czech Republic. We had an amazing time! It was while in Germany that I saw and picked up this Lagavulin 8 year-old produced for their 200th…

Edradour Caledonia 12 Year-Old

Edradour is a whisky brand I don’t always gravitate towards. While at the liquor store I stumbled across a small 50 ml bottle of the Edradour Caledonia 12 Year-Old and I thought why not, lets give it a world. Edradour is known as one of Scotland’s smallest distillery. It’s a highlands single malt that was…

Jura 16 Year-Old

The Jura 16 year-old is called Diurach, which in Gaelic means “People of Jura”. The Isle of Jura is part of Scotland’s west coast islands. It is matured in American White Oak for about 14 years and then finished it’s last two years in ex-Amoroso Oloroso sherry casks. I like this whisky; it is smooth,…

Glenmorangie Nectar D’Or

Whenever I think of sweet whiskies one of the first brand that comes to mind is Glenmorangie. Most of the Glenmorangie whiskies I’ve tasted have been on the sweeter side and this Nectar D’Or is no exception. For this expression Glenmorangie starts the maturing process in bourbon casks and finishes the process in Sauternes casks….

Macallan 25 year-old Scotch

Thursday night while out for drinks with my boyfriend we spotted The Macallan 25 in the menu and we just had to try it. Macallan is a brand name everyone has heard off even if they aren’t fans of Scotch. Before I tell you about my experience with this 25 year-old whisky, you must know…

Blackadder Raw Cask – Ledaig 2001 – 13 year-old

If you are not familiar with Blackadder (no worries, I didn’t know who they were till about two weeks ago), they are independent bottlers of single malt whiskies. Robin Tucek and John Lamond first established Blackadder in 1995. In 2000 they then started to offer their Raw Cask Series, which includes the whisky I am…

Talisker 57° North

What, the 1st day of September already, where has the summer gone? And I know, this post should have posted yesterday but I was feeling a bit under the weather so I took the afternoon to rest and get better. Today I am feeling loads better and am back at it with a whisky I…
