New Riff Kentucky Straight Bourbon Bottled In Bond
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed December 24, 2022Plenty of heat here but not overwhelming. Hints of vanilla but not much. Decent but wouldn’t rush back to it.
Bourbon — USAReviewed December 16, 2022Light and vanilla are accurate for this selection. Affordable is another. It’s a nice introduction to bourbon or a nice way to start an evening tastingHighlander Liquor Store Inc
Boulder Spirits American Single Malt Sherry Cask
American Single Malt — USAReviewed December 16, 2022Fairly straightforward whiskey with a touch more character than the regular Boulder, which is an affordable go to bourbon in my closet. This one hints at sherry but doesn’t hit you in the face with it, so temper your expectations if that’s your thing. Overall enjoyed however unsure it’s with the $10 premium over the standard bottleCalgary Tower

Single Malt — Highland, ScotlandReviewed June 20, 2022Superb! In a rush so that is all.
Roe & Co Blended Irish Whiskey
Blended — IrelandReviewed May 19, 2022Very decent dram for the price. Def floral and sweet. Sipped with a splash of water and also used in old fashioned. Might buy again!
Glendronach 10 year (2009/2019)
Single Malt — Highland, ScotlandReviewed April 16, 2022Sweet nose, light and fruity in the palate, short finish reminiscent of a 40% abv. Very easy drinker overall, and a nice one at that if that is what you are after. Have not tried the 12 year for comparison, but will look for it.
Bib & Tucker 6 Year Small Batch Bourbon
Bourbon — USAReviewed April 6, 2022First off, gorgeous deep caramel colour, reminding me of my favourite scotch. Nose of ethanol, then the hot citrus hits your cheeks upon the first dram. Finish is medium, complex and only slightly satisfying. If it were $20 cheaper I’d say it’s interesting enough to buy again, but at its price point I’ll reach for a different premium bourbon next time.
Saints Alley Port & cognac Casks Batch 1
Bourbon — Texas, USAReviewed April 2, 2022Big and bold is the best way to describe. Needs a small ice cube or touch of water to smooth out the heat. Might buy again, or might not!
Straight Edge Bourbon
Bourbon — Tennessee and Kentucky (Finished and Bottled in California), USAReviewed March 24, 2022Agreed with others, honey and vanilla dominate the palate and finish, which just happen to be my 2 favourite flavours for bourbon. If you want to stronger finish look elsewhere for a bigger ABV, but this one punches quite well in its weight class. A must buy again!Sobeys - Cranston
Aberfeldy 16 Year
Single Malt — ScotlandReviewed March 2, 2022Honey sweetness all the way through. A nice dram but only a marginal improvement in depth of flavour vs the 12 year. Another purchase would highly depend upon a sale price or not.Calgary International Airport (YYC)
