  1. Centennial Limited Edition Canadian Whisky

    The absolute best of the bottom shelf of Canadian whiskies. Give me this over Crown or Alberta Premium any day. This is a cheap and rough around the edges. But it knows exactly what it is and owns it!

    The milder peat and the sherry influence brings to mind Lagavulin 16. No where near as refined as the Lag, but you get that lovely intersection of pear and sherry that feels like barbecue or bacon. Love this!

    This tastes a little young but it is bright and brilliant! No substitute for the classic 12. But if sea brine and sherry are your thing this will do it for you. The sherry is there but not overpowering!

    Bang average. Very decent blend, a bit over priced.
  6. Westland American Oak American Single Malt

    The immediate nose is banana! And caramel? Bananas foster! Wild! Obviously above 40% from the nose, but nothing crazy. The flavour of bananas carries through the palate with some chocolate and coffee flavours. The finish is a bit hot and long lasting, lovely lingering sweetness. I didn’t know an American single malt could be this great!

    Thin and wispy, but strong banana and peat notes. Not the most successful special edition but it’s ardbeg, still better than a lot of swill out there

    Beautiful, clean and fresh on the nose Deeply smoky but with strong woody nose. Less charred/tar than bright woody smoke. Bright clean pine flavour on the taste with a backup citrus sweetness. Finish lingers with some small bitterness but doesn’t stay longer than welcome.

    This is fantastic stuff. Throughly Ardbeg with some extra punch. The signature smoke is there with a whole lot more. The bitter tea flavours really jumped out at me. The tea flavours and the peat combined into a kind of pine-y spruce-like flavour. I am a big fan. Would love to spend some more time with this. PS: go to Grey Tiger

  10. Bulleit Bourbon

    Is this the best whisky in the world? Nope. Is it even the best bourbon? Probably not. But it IS most certainly what it IS. Like Guinness is to stouts. This is kind of the bog standard of the style, and that is not a bad thing! Ever dependable and readily available, often at very good prices. It is alright neat, great on ice, and excellent in cocktails. If I need a bourbon for the bar cart this is what I am reaching for 9 times out of 10. Sure there is better juice out there. Stronger, more flavourful, more complex, but this does its job and does it well!
