Whisky update. Glenfiddich 12 YO. Nice #speyside stuff.

Epic tasting was epic. #yam#yamazakirycask #2016 #yamazaki #suntory #japanesewhisky #whisky #whiskytasting #whiskygram #mizunara #drinkyourwhiskey #drinkyourwhisky Tasting notes: . . . . . Yamazaki Sherry cask 2016 Color: mahogany red, long thick legs Nose: Deep rich dark fruits , not a hint of alcohol, buttered candied roasted nuts, complex but smooth and sweet Pallette: Dark red fruits like black currants blackberries, figs, hint of leather, medium roast coffee, milk chocolate, orange peel, cashews, buttery, viscous mouth feel. Tried to find some off putting notes but couldn't. Finish: Long, little to no mizunara influence in the taste, no hint of oaky bitterness like the 18, slightly drying and mouth watering. Long lingering sherried notes with some Mint and liquorice at the very end Summary: It's the king of all sherried whiskies I've ever had. It has all the positives without any off putting notes which even keep Yamazakis own 18 yr old from being a perfect whisky. IMO this is the perfect Sherried whisky. Of course I haven't had the Yamazaki 25 😉.Just impossible to get at a reasonable price unfortunately.

A recent arrival here.. the Dramfool 9th release! This is a single cask @bruichladdich matured for 10 years in an ex-Bourbon barrel at 62.2% ABV. Truth be told, Bruichladdich’s unpeated expression has really grown on me over the years and I look forward to trying different expressions offered. Very excited to have this available to compare with other expressions from the family! #whi#whiskylust #whiskeylust #whiskeygram #pursuitofqualitydrams #sco#scotch #whiskyporn #scotch #singlemalt #bourbon #dram #bruichladdich #unpeated #wellmaybeweehintsofpeat #privatecask #dramfool #vanilla #exbourbon #instadram #booze #whisky #whiskylife #drinkyourwhisky #drinkyourdamnwhisky #shareitwithfriends

Nothing like an incredible dinner involving whisky pairings from your better half! Started with a delectable Scallop appetizer over a mint-pea blended gazpacho, paired with @bruichladdich Black Art 4. That was followed by an incredible slow cooked lamb entree with baba ganoush and home made pita, paired with @lagavulinwhisky 16 🤤🤤. We finished up with a chilled blood orange and dark chocolate soup for dessert, paired with a @talisker IB from Old Malt Cask. An incredible meal cooked up with immense love from my most loved! #whi#whiskylust #whiskeylust #whiskeygram #pursuitofqualitydrams #sco#scotch #whiskyporn #scotch #singlemalt #bruichladdich #blackart #lagavulin #lagavulin16 #talisker #instadram #booze #whisky #whiskylife #drinkyourwhisky #drinkyourdamnwhisky #shareitwithfriends

Another gloriously chilly and gloomy Sunday means a perfect day for drams. The tasting began with a Cadenhead 175th Blair Athol which has an immensely satisfying nose but the Diageo 2017 Special Release Blair Athol has a palate and finish that are spectacular. After that, we moved to the Cadenhead 175th @oldpulteneymalt, Balmenach, and Auchroisk. Winners for me overall were both Blair Athol expressions, the Pulteney, Auchroisk, and the Teaninich expressions (picture forthcoming). We also had @westlandwhiskey handfill with one of their peated single malt expressions. It’s light and gentle but very respectable with an astounding nose! #whi#whiskylust #whiskeylust #whiskeygram #pursuitofqualitydrams #sco#scotchporn #whiskyporn #scotch #singlemalt #bourbon #dram #pseudograndpa #cadenhead #blairathol #teaninich #oldpulteney #balmenach #westland #seattle #auchroisk #instadram #booze #whisky #whiskylife #drinkyourwhisky #drinkyourdamnwhisky #shareitwithfriends

The comparison continues. Now that my @bruichladdich Octomore 8.3 has had a few weeks to open up, I think we can start having a more discerning comparative tasting. The 6.3 has been open for months now so it certainly has a leg up on breathing. C’est la vie, I guess. #whi#whiskylust #whiskeylust #whiskeygram #pursuitofqualitydrams #sco#scotch #whiskyporn #scotch #singlemalt #bourbon #dram #bruichladdich #octomore #peat #peatsmoke #instadram #booze #whisky #whiskylife #drinkyourwhisky #drinkyourdamnwhisky #shareitwithfriends

DC’s @thewhiskyextravaganza was a hit this year (no question, of course) and luck bestowed me the opportunity to help pour drams from @thesmws @smws_america November out turn to attendees. Amongst the great whiskies lined up for next month, this @royalbrackla just won my heart. I repeatedly told folks who came to the table that despite my affinity towards the briny and layered peated drams from the various Scottish coastlines, this particular expression offered a rich, dark, and fruity palate with a long lingering finish. After thinking about it some more the past two mornings, the only word I could come up with is: luscious. This dram is simply luscious. Several folks at the Extravaganza picked up bottles of this expression amongst others. Grab yourself a bottle when it hits the SMWSA site in about a week! #whi#whisky #whiskeylust #whiskeygram #pursuitofqualitydrams #sco#scotch #whiskyporn #scotch #singlemalt #dram #singlecask #instadram #booze #whisky #whiskylife #drinkyourwhisky #drinkyourdamnwhisky #shareitwithfriends

Y’all, when Harvey says the tasting was a 97, you savor that score. A hodgepodge of whiskies: the @abbeywhisky 24 year @glendronach distilled in 1993, the @bruichladdich #mp7 bottling, along with #octomore 6.1 and 8.1 for comparison, as well as Octomore 6.3 and 8.3. What a great day of tasting.

As we start our descent into the weekend, let’s review some goodies tasted during the week. 🥃 Johnny Drum: Despite any disagreements that come from reading this, I think Johnny Drum represents everything good about affordable Bourbon. Good nose, good mouthfeel, respectable palate, passable finish. It won’t be the best Bourbon but can anyone objectively define “best”? It is amazing that Johnny Drum is the price it is generally sold at. Just good, dependable whiskey. 🥃 Benriach Solstice 17 year Port Finish: My opinion is Benriach produces good, dependable whisky. I think they release the occasional great expression, but my suspicion is they enjoy producing consistently dependable whisky that’s good on the nose, good on the palate, and decent on the finish. Maybe I’m wrong—I don’t know but Benriach is a staple whisky for me. One of those distilleries that produce a whisky for comforting and unwinding after a day. No need to pontificate the layers of complexity in the whisky but rather recount the highs of the day and think about how you’re going to kick the rest of the week in the teeth with awesomeness. 🥃 Port Charlotte Private Cask — Eskilstuna Whiskykultur: This beautiful PC was distilled in 2011 with local Islay barley and bottles earlier this year. Young, brash, and hot headed with something to prove. I love PCs and I am struggling to think of a PC I have encountered that I didn’t like. I especially love these younger PCs—a little rougher around the edges, so to speak, with heat from the distillate, intense sweetness from cask influence, and a lot of character that makes me focus on disassembling the whisky to try to figure out why the cask owners deemed it ready. I think deciding when a whisk(e)y is deemed ready for bottling is largely a personal preference and subjective to some degree, so I can only suspect that the folks who picked this cask share similar preferences that I have. A lovely dram that takes to breathing. A lovely dram that I’m eager to continue exploring. A lovely dram that jazzes me up for this weekend. 🥃 #whiskylust #whiskeylust #whiskeygram #pursuitofqualitydrams #sco#scotchporn #whiskyporn #scotch #singlemalt #bourbon #dram #drinkyourwhisky

Indeed, this is a private cask selection of @bruichladdich Lochindaal. What is Lochindaal, you might ask. Well, with only info I could go off some friends who are avid fans of the distillery and my own @google-fu, the Lochindaal expression was first distilled in 2007 with the peated level to be at 50+ppm. This puts the peated level of the distillate higher than Port Charlotte but certainly not as high as the Octomore range. The expression is named after of one of Islay’s lost distilleries that operated further south in Port Charlotte. According to the blog post I found, the first 100 casks of this distillate from 2007 was offered for sale to the public at £1850/cask... an absolute steal if you think about today’s prices. Perhaps what helped get the word on this distillate out in the whisky community was the 2015 Feis Ile release of Lochindaal, with a yield of 500 bottles and clocking in at 59.5% ABV. 🥃 So, how does this particular expression hold up? Well, it’s very good but it’s a stout whisky and needs time to breathe. I’ve let it sit for nearly 30 minutes and it has calmed down a bit. A big nose with bright, briny, and liberally notes. Lots of peat. The palate on this expression is actually really soft and you need to let it sit in your mouth to really enjoy it. Soft, vanilla notes with some peppery heat. The finish is not long, nor is it complex, but it is straightforward and satisfying. Overall? At 62.1%, and the highs and lows of the sweet, brine, and smoky peat characteristics commingling makes this a satisfying dram. If I could go back in time and purchase this spirit to put into a quality fortified wine cask, I think I’d be set.

Tobermory, formerly known as Ledaig and still producing peated whisky under the Ledaig moniker, is one of those distilleries that I honestly don't gravitate towards. That said, given the opportunity to always expand my palate, I purchased a couple bottles of this private pick to check out and I'm not disappointed one bit in doing so. Very easy drinking, if a little incomplete in its palate. Nice nose, and a somewhat creamy mouthfeel, though lacking in well roundedness in the middle of the tongue. Moderately short finish. At the end of the day, diversity in whisk(e)y is what makes this vice so unbelievably enjoyable.

If you don't know... This is a private barrel pick from none other than @bruichladdich. An 8 year full-term rum matured Port Charlotte. It has these delicate characteristics that also complement the common traits you find in a PC expression. A phenomenal selection by Bruce, the mastermind behind Dramfool. ... Just spectacular! #whiskylust #drinkyourwhisky #instadram #whiskygram #whiskyporn #portcharlotte #bruichladdich #dramfool #rumcask

A Monday night dram to unwind. @kilchomansinglemalt makes such amazing distillate that can stand its ground against influences that can overwhelm other spirits.

The first of several comparative tastings. The @laphroaig 10 year Batch 1 is a delicious opening act to prep the palate for the onslaught of peat. Following that, we moved on to comparing three @bruichladdich Octomore expressions: The @elementsofislay Oc3, the recently dispatched Octomore OBA, and Octomore 7.4. I won't ramble on with tasting notes but each whisky has great unique characteristics. Drink your whisky with friends, enjoy the time you have together, and never stop your pursuit for high quality experiences. #whisky #caskstrength #oct#octomoreblackart #octomoreoba #octomore #laphroaig #instadram #instawhisky #whiskygram #whiskylust #drinkyourwhisky

Well all the cool kids were doing it.... so after the San Francisco spirits thing everyone has been talking about barrell bourbon. I'd honestly never had it, but am always up for trying something new. This particular one is a 8.5 year barrel pick by liquor barn here in Kentucky. At 117.7 proof it's a little lower than a lot of barrel proofers I like. This was a pricey bottle, so I'm trying to decide if I open it now or if I wait until I get back from Egypt next month. Which does mean I'm going back overseas. Anyone interested in taking over whiskey on a fence post for a month go ahead and send me a message and I'll pick someone before I leave again on the 25th. #bou#bourbondrinker #bourbonwhiskey #madeinthebluegrass #madeinamerica #kentuckystraightbourbon #kentuckybourbon #americanwhiskey #darkwater #brownwater #whiskeyonafencepost #bourbon #warmdrinkonacloudyday #barrellbourbon #drinkingonamonday #drinkyourwhisky #keepwarm #sourced #instawhiskey #bottleporn #privateselect #singlebarrel #barrelproof #caskstrength #liquourbarn #myoldkentuckyhome #oneofthecoolkids #bourbonfound

Sitting out back on this beautiful day enjoying a pour of the makers mark private select stave selection with @bluegrassglutton . A few days ago, I said makers mark is just a good standard sipping whiskey. Well, this is a totally different whiskey. Tons of cinnamon and toasted sugar come through on the palate. The nose is all banana and fresh cut cherry wood. It's complex and rich. The only flaw I find is the finish is a little short, and it's a little pricey, but there is so much going on here I can forgive this. 😉#bourbondrinker #bourbonwhiskey #madeinthebluegrass #madeinamerica #kentuckystraightbourbon #kentuckybourbon #americanwhiskey #darkwater #brownwater #whiskeyonafencepost #bourbon #warmdrinkonacloudyday #beamsuntory #drinkingonasunday #drinkyourwhisky #keepwarm #makersmark #wheated #wheater #instawhiskey #bottleporn #privateselect #singlebarrel #barrelproof #caskstrength #liquourbarn #oakstaves #myoldkentuckyhome

Well I saw this one sitting on an end rack for next to nothing and couldn't help myself. Trying to see if I can figure out where they source from. It definitely reminds me of some of the low rye wathens/medley stuff out of owensboro. Nothing about this is mind blowing, and it seems to lack some of the oak you would expect from a 10 year old bourbon. Also a little thin, but the barrel proof medley hit the market at 126 proof, so I wonder if it's just heavily diluted. It may sound like I'm being harsh, but it actually isn't bad stuff, and if you see it sub $30, like I did, go ahead and grab one. #bou#bourbondrinker #bourbonwhiskey #madeinthebluegrass #madeinamerica #kentuckystraightbourbon #kentuckybourbon #americanwhiskey #darkwater #brownwater #whiskeyonafencepost #bourbon #warmdrinkonacloudyday #drinkingonasunday #daydrinking #drinkyourwhisky #keepwarm #birddogwhiskey #instawhiskey #bottleporn

So sometimes you just need something completely non offensive and predictable. I tend to forget about makers most of the time, but it is actually a pretty fantastic sipping bourbon. The red wheat makes for a sweet drink, but not overly sweet. It's low proof isn't ideal for me, but I can easily sit back and enjoy it. This little bottle is actually from one of the first trips we made to kentucky, and if you can't tell was expertly wax dipped by my darling wife. #bou#bourbondrinker #bourbonwhiskey #madeinthebluegrass #madeinamerica #kentuckystraightbourbon #kentuckybourbon #americanwhiskey #darkwater #brownwater #whiskeyonafencepost #bourbon #warmdrinkonacloudyday #beamsuntory #drinkingonasunday #drinkyourwhisky #keepwarm #makersmark #wheated #wheater #instawhiskey #bottleporn

Just got surprised by a package in the mail, and have to say this may be my favorite bottle ever. While the whisky inside is fantastic, the reason this bottle is so special is that it came with a request to be the best man in a dear friends wedding this fall. He didn't have to send the whisky I would have said yes no matter what, but a wonderful bottle of Taliskers never hurts. 😉 On another note, old whiskey on a fence post will be out of the country for a few months (no whiskey in Egypt) so I will be finding someone to take over my account for a few months for me.

I almost missed international scotch whisky day, but fortunately my friend @zero2eighty_proof reminded me. My pour this week has unfortunately been mucinex and nyquil (not as much fun as it sounds) but I'm happy to see someone is still celebrating it right. To celebrate scotch day I want to share the classic laddie. This one used to have a 10 year age statement but now actually has a cool online code you can use to find out exactly what barrels were used, what barley type, and even where they were aged. More than anything though is that the quality hasn't declined at all. Still crisp and a little dry with tons of citrus and honey when it first hits your tongue. This is a great dram from a distillery doing great things. @bruichladdich #cheers #bruichladdich #islay #madeinscotland #finespirits #madeinislay #singlemalt #whiskynotwhiskey #scotch #scotchwhisky #theclassicladdie #drinkyourwhisky #goodwhisky #whiskeyonafencepost #instawhiskey #bottleporn #internationalscotchwhiskyday

The OGD baby! My grandad was cool but wasn't ogd BiB on sale for $14 cool. If you love bourbon, and you haven't enjoyed this one yet you are doing yourself a disservice. If you like Basil Haydens and find yourself wondering "What would this taste like if it actually had any flavor or depth or anything at all" then this is the one for you. This isn't the world greatest bourbon, but it easily punches with bourbons that cost 3x more. It is a high rye spice bomb that has a nice long finish to it. #bou#bourbondrinker #bourbonwhiskey #madeinthebluegrass #madeinamerica #kentuckystraightbourbon #kentuckybourbon #americanwhiskey #darkwater #brownwater #whiskeyonafencepost #bourbon #OGDBiB #beamsuntory #bottleporn #drinkyourwhisky #instawhiskey #whiskeynotwhisky

Here's one I took before the weeks of rain began. This is bruichladdich's replacement to my precious organic multi vintage. I've not worked my way to opening this one yet, but I'm holding out hope that the higher proof and less variety in the blending isn't a big disappointment. The original organic tasted like berries and caramel green apples and is one of my go-to's when it comes to introducing people to a single malt. @bruichladdich #cheers #bruichladdich #islay #madeinscotland #finespirits #madeinislay #singlemalt #whiskynotwhiskey #scotch #scotchwhisky #theorganic #organic #drinkyourwhisky #goodwhisky #whiskeyonafencepost #instawhiskey #bottleporn

I don't know if there is anything I can say about knob creek 120 that hasn't been said before, but I will try my best. This is one of those consistently great bourbons that are loved by everyone. At near barrel strength and usually around $40 it is hard to beat. They release a flavored maple syrup version of this but I have no idea why because it already smells and taste so much like maple and brown sugar that it's hard to beat. I just hope that this one doesn't lose its age statement like the rest of them. #bou#bourbondrinker #bourbonwhiskey #madeinthebluegrass #madeinamerica #kentuckystraightbourbon #kentuckybourbon #americanwhiskey #darkwater #brownwater #whiskeyonafencepost #bourbon #warmdrinkforcolddays #beamsuntory #drinkingonasunday #drinkyourwhisky #keepwarm #knobcreek #singlebarrel #highproof #instawhiskey #bottleporn

So @lagavulinwhisky is one of those companies that can do no wrong as far as I'm concerned, and that definitely stands true for this commemorative bottling of 8 year for their 200th anniversary. I went into this one a little skeptical and finished it with a long, smokey, peppery, tobacco filled peat lingering on the tongue. This lacks the richness of the standard 16, but it also exposes some of the light citrus that you find in other islays that has always seemed to be missing from lagavulin. I'm glad I grabbed a few of these, because I actually really love this young little whisky. #lagavulin #scotch #scotchwhisky #isl#islayscotch #islay #madeinscotland #madeinislay #whiskeyonafencepost #whi#whiskyhiskey #whisky #amateurreview #drinkingonasunday #drinkyourwhisky #darkwater #brownwater #mothersmilk #singlemalt #goodwhisky #slainte #peat #peatedwhisky #instawhiskey #whiskeyporn #bottleporn #lagavulin8 #lagavulin200

Hey I'm alive and back from the woods, and nothing warms cold and tired bones likes whisky! For Christmas eve let's pull out a little @monkeyshoulderaustralia The name monkey shoulder comes from the term for the oversized shoulder built up from turning the malted barley by hand. What it is, is one of the only blends that I really care for much. This is a bourbon drinkers scotch. The nose is a little hot despite the lower proof. The taste is cereal grains and corn, the finish is a lingering sweetness more typical of a bourbon. I know many scotch distilleries use bourbon barrels, but I feel like this is the only one where is clearly comes through. #monkeyshoulder #scotch #blendedmalt #blendedscotch #scotchwhisky #whiskynotwhiskey #whiskeyonafencepost #dri#drinkyourwhisky #warmdrinkforcolddays #madeinscotland #speyside #speysidewhisky #drinkyourwhisky #whiskyfortheholidays #imbackbaby #darkwater #goodwhisky #nofilter

Old whiskey on a fence post is going to be in the woods camping the next few days. So I'll have to put up something tasty to hold everyone over. This is caol ila. For the longest time this delicious single malt was used exclusively for blending in things like the Walker blended scotches. This malt is unique because it is distilled on Islay like so many other great scotches then shipped in tankers and aged on the mainland. This leaves the peat influence, but takes away some of the briney saltiness that is so standard in many islays. This is a more subtle Islay. It's flavors are a little more delicate instead of a slap in the face. It's a beautiful golden color and is good enough on its own or to add a little smokiness to a cocktail. #caolila #caolila12 #singlemalt #madeinscotland #madeinislay #scotch #scotchwhisky #singlemaltscotch #whisky #whiskynotwhiskey #whiskeyonafencepost #drinkyourwhisky #goodwhisky #allwhiskydeserveslove #whiskyporn

You may have noticed that I have a thing for @buffalotrace and this one is no exception. The mashbill no2 craze of the week seems to shift around between Elmer T Lee, Blanton's, and Rock Hill Farms, but for some reason Hancock reserve hasn't seemed to catch the attention of the masses. Made from mashbill no 2 which according to most is around 20% rye then aged between 4-7 years, Hancock still has the signature orange peel and vanilla that makes these bourbons so great. It is bottled at a lower 88.9 proof so it does feel like a "thinner" bourbon, if that makes sense. If you're passing through the Bluegrass anytime soon @liquor_barn_ky has a barrel pick of this that is really great, but who doesn't love a good barrel pick? #madeinthebluegrass #myoldkentuckyhome #singlebarrel #buffalotracebourbon #sazerac #bourbon #bourbondrinker #whiskeyonafencepost #kentuckystraightbourbon #kentuckybourbon #ame#americanwhiskey #madeinamerica #goodwhiskey #americanwhiskey #brownwater #darkwater #mashbill2 #hancockpresidentsreserve #drinkyourwhisky #whiskeynotwhisky

Here's one that seems to get pretty mixed reviews from people, but I'm a big fan. The auchentoshan is a triple distilled, generally more associated with Irish whiskey, single malt scotch. The three wood is aged in Pedro ximinez sherry casks, unnamed American bourbon casks, and then the Oloroso sherry casks. The sherry really comes through on this one strong, giving a sweet cherry to the palate. This is a rich almost oily single malt while keeping that heavy honey from the 12 year. This is a nice dessert glass to relax with, but don't know if it's one I could pour nightly. #singlemalt #scotch #scotchwhisky #lowland #lowlandscotch #madeinscotland #pedroximenez #sherry #sherrybomb #auchentoshan @theauchentoshan #whiskeyonafencepost #whiskeydrinker #drinkyourwhisky #whi#whiskyhiskey #whisky #darkwater
