This blogger is just the right balance if insanity, hilarity, and talent. Besides he has probably new favorite blog quote of all time This beer is so dark that I saw Kim Kardashian humping a case of it at Whole Foods.” This should give you an idea of what he has to offer. Anyway, give it a read. Its worth it.
Slainte,

My Review

Thomas Jefferson has been credited with many accomplishments, some of them deserved, some of them he’s been credited for seemingly because no one had any other idea who invented what. We all know that he composed the original draft of the Declaration of Independence, but did you know he also invented macaroni and cheese? No? Well that’s because he didn’t, but no one really knows who did. Jefferson was a fan of mac and cheese, served it at Monticello, and BAM! Thomas Jefferson introduced macaroni and cheese to the world. Flash forward to the present. Thomas Jefferson is disappointed that that their are no flying horse chariots, and wondering why McLain & Kyne Distillery has named a line of bourbons after him that has supposedly invented the…

Glenmorangie – Nectar D’or – 93/100 Finally a Scotch that I love!


Price – Discovery Set – $41.99 – (Costco)

Method – 50 ml in a Glencairn – two fingers in a rocks glass

Rating – 93-100 – standard rating scale for wine and spirits

Review -

I’ll start by saying that this is my second 50ml bottle of this scotch.  So far, it is my favorite scotch that I have tried, so when I saw the discovery set, I figured I’d give their range a shot.  I probably shouldn’t review them starting at the most expensive and working backward, but I just really wanted to drink this particular whisky again.  So lets get this train a rollin’ eh?

Willett – Pot Still Reserve – 85/100


Price – 750 ml – $47.99 – (Heights Beer and Wine Emporium)

Method – 50 ml in a Glencairn – two fingers in a rocks glass

Rating – 85-100 – standard rating scale for wine and spirits

Review -

So I think like a lot of people, its the bottle that really makes this whiskey jump off the shelf.  Once I got it home the biggest quandary became where to put it on my shelf.  The wide base of this bad bourbon is quite a foot print of prime real estate, so I had to jostle around the collection a bit to get it to make sense.  I have been hearing a lot of buzz about this particular bourbon, so I thought I’d give it a go during “WWTWW2k12″ (Whiskey World Tour Whiskey Week 2012).   Continue reading


Greenore – Single Grain – 8 years old – Single Grain – 90/100


Price – 750 ml – $43.99 – (www.shoppersvineyard.com)

Method – 50 ml in a Glencairn

Rating – 90-100 – standard rating scale for wine and spirits

Review -

Before we get into the review of this really great whiskey, I’d like to take a small side route.  As of yesterday, when I posted the Woodford Reserve Double Oaked review, I realized that I am 1 week from the 6-month milestone for WWT, so I figured I’d celebrate it with Whiskey Week.  One whiskey per day, for 7 days.  Sounds like fun, so lets get down to brass tacks here.

This is one of the whiskeys that I bought for St. Paddy’s day, and never got around to reviewing, and I’ll also say that the 15 year version of this whiskey was the choice of G-Lo from the Booze Dancing crew, so this ones for you G-Lo!  It also ended up being one of my favorite Irish bottles in my burgeoning collection in the end.

Woodford Reserve – Double Oaked – 94/100


Price – 750 ml – $44.99 – (www.shoppersvineyard.com)

Method – 50 ml in a Glencairn

Rating – 94-100 – standard rating scale for wine and spirits

Review -

I’m going to start my review by saying… DAMN!  It’s been nearly 3 months since my last actual review, but the semester from hell -in which much whiskey was consumed, much writing was done, but none of it actually made it to the blog- is finally over.  So I’m going to kick off my reinvigorated efforts with a whiskey that completely knocked my socks off.  Woodford Reserve (the original) was a beautiful whiskey, but the one drawback for me was that I got a horrible metallic finish at the very end.  I was hoping to get all the good of Woodford  Reserve original without that terrible finish, what I got was so far beyond that.  But, as I’m fond of saying, “less talk more rock”.

Woodford Reserve Barrel Top Serving Tray… tl;dr Awesome Whiskey Shwag.


Every now and again I come across cool whiskey shwag in my meanderings about the internet.  Today I came across a pretty nifty item in this Woodford Reserve barrel top which has been given handles in order to make it into a serving tray.  I  think I might buy this just to hang it up in my man-cave area since it looks so awesome.  I thought I would share it with the whiskey community and generate some sales for this awesome source.   Click here to take a look.



Chuck:

Well I reblogged the other two, I might as well Continue with the series. Since I can’t drink right now (bad tooth getting taken care of today) I will lean on the guys at boozedancing to do what they do best, write great reviews of amazing whiskeys. Keep it up.

Slainte,
Chuck

Quick recap…

In mid January, I purchased a Compass Box sampler set that contained five of their core expressions. I have reviewed their Asyla (loved it!). I have also reviewed their Oak Cross (the jury is still out).  Now it’s time for The Peat Monster. Here is what our friends at Compass Box have to say about The Peat Monster:
