Ardbeg Ardcore

Here is Ardbeg’s 2022 Ardbeg Day release, Ardcore. Which pays tribute to the Punk Rock scene of the 1970s. The blue in the bottle makes it stand out amongst past Ardbeg releases. I purchased their regular Ardcore bottle (ABV 46%). A 50.1% was released for the Committee as well. This is a no-age-statement made using…

The Glenlivet 14 Year Cognac Cask Selection

It was 90 degrees this weekend in Boston! The whisky drinking days are slowly disappearing but, fear not, I have a few more posts before that happens. This little guy (50ml) I got for free at the liquor store because they couldn’t get it to scan. It was an absolute win for me. I always…

WhistlePig Orange Fashioned

Spring finally sprang here in Boston with an amazingly warm weekend and here I am trying to grow whiskey bottles in my flower box. One can only dream!

Elijah Craig Old Fashioned Cocktail Syrup

Now here’s a non-alcoholic Elijah Craig product I came across by chance. This little bottle which cost me just around $4, is simply a syrup to make an Old Fashion with.

This Old Fashion and a Manhattan Cocktail (in…

Elijah Craig – Toasted Barrel

Here’s one of those whiskies we would always search for but could never find. Until we visited friends in Virginia. We not only got a chance to taste it but also got to take home the bottle (Thanks Kevin A). For this expression, Elijah Craig Small Batch Bourbon is used as the base. After the…
