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…

Happy Thanksgiving! Before you gather with a smaller group of loved ones this year, I wanted to share a dram with you all. It will just be me and my Fiancé for Thanksgiving this year; so he surprised me with this Nikka Whisky, so let’s get right into it. This blended whisky combines both malt…

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,…

Laphroaig Select

We have officially reached the type of weather were a nice smoky whisky is deliciously warming. On a recent trip to Vermont we stopped in New Hampshire and picked up a bottle of Laphroaig Select. We picked it up not only because it was a smoky whisky but also because the price was right. Here…

Evening with Compass Box and Jill Boyd

Compass Box, a Scotch whisky blending house located in London began its journey in 2000. It is the brainchild of John Glaser who believe that scotch blending should have a forward thinking approach and that it should be more creative. This past Saturday we got a chance to meet and talk to Compass Box Whiskymaker…

Aberlour Casg Annamh

In Gaelic Casg Annamh means ‘rare cask’. It is a new sherry-led expression by Aberlour. For those not familiar with Aberlour, this Speyside distillery was established in 1826 by Peter Weir and James Gordon. This distillery was unfortunately plagued not by one but by two fires. After the first fire, James Fleming rebuilt the distillery…

Lagavulin 11-Year Offerman Edition

What are two of my favorite things during the winter? Peaty whiskies and a wonderful warming fire, so yes I can play Nick Offerman’s ‘Yule Log‘ while drinking Lagavulin over and over again since, well… I don’t actually have a fireplace. Lagavulin happens to be Offerman’s favorite whisky. He also starred as scotch-loving Ron Swanson…
