Just had the Old Fashioned at Pourhouse yesterday. It was solid but not really "Wow" and definitely not worth it for $13 a pop. Plus tax and tip it was almost $70 for 2 drinks each for me and my friend.

It is really a very simple cocktail to make at home. No blending, shaking, or special ingredients needed.

The insane line-up of whiskeys and meats at a recent dinner I went to. What an epic night.

I luv Edinburgh. Try Famous Grouse & Ginger on tap! For those looking for great everyday value, Famous Grouse is a blend of Macallan and Highland Park.

Was browsing the gallery on my phone and dug these up. This was a Whiskey tasting event at The Cascade room on Robbie Burn's day sponsored by Glenlivet.





After polishing off the last of the Aberlour A'bunadh I didn't remember much after waving to the band as we were leaving that night.

While traveling I like to peruse the bourbon lists looking for things I haven't tried, or if the bartender seems to know what he's talking about I ask for some suggestions based on my usual preferences. Wyoming Whiskey was suggested to me by a bartender in Jackson WY, apparently the retired brewmaster from Makers Mark was called out of retirement to be the brewmaster for this small-batch Whiskey. Somewhat unique, in that all ingredients and materials are produced in-state. Ended up drinking only Wyoming Whiskey for the duration of my Wyoming visit, so a bottle obviously had to come home.


I'm a big fan of the Knob Creek 9 year bourbon, so I figured I had to add the single barrel to my cabinet as well. Turns out they also have a new Maple, and I really enjoy Tap357...so I opted to add a bottle of Knob Creek Maple to the cabinet as well. Haven't opened either yet...but will get to it soon.

knob creek is awesome! if you lke Knob, try Booker's, Baker's, and Basil Hayden as well. Big smoky flavour.

The goal, according to Suntory, is to learn how a zero-gravity, temperature-stable environment affects the "mellowness" of the drinks as they age. The taste of most alcoholic drinks is known to mellow with time, though the mechanisms by which that happens are still unknown. Research conducted in collaboration with Japanese scientists has shown that environments that suppress liquid convection may play a role in the mellowing process, Suntory said in its press release.

Glengoyne 21. Tasted so good, half way through the bottle i went and bought 2 more.





Also opened a extinct bottle of Green Label (taste like a wet rainforest. Yum), sold out martel, and great testing 1738 for a dinner.

dalmore, yum. its what got my started drinking whisky. its kinda strange that the older bottles doesn't use any bourbon cask. 12 is very intense full body whisky. i always end up adding a few drops of water.

i think bcliquor dropped their price on the 12 year too. good time to stock up

Recently had the chance to try the entire line of Kavalan. The regular single barrel is horrible but the Soloist...

Lack of depth, smokey but not very smooth.

I kind of feel they know what they are talking about by running with a music theme of whiskey labels, Soloist, Concertmaster, etc... Sounds cheesy but it was like a musical in my mouth lol.
