Blue Spot 7 Year Cask Strength Single Pot Still
Single Pot Still — IrelandReviewed January 9, 2023Fuck you hot, tons of bourbon. Damn great under it all. But goddamn that's a lot on top of it all.
Johnnie Walker Red Label
Peated Blend — ScotlandReviewed January 9, 2023Inedible
Redbreast Lustau Edition
Single Pot Still — IrelandReviewed January 9, 2023Excellent oaked white finish, but doesn't measure up to the 12 in complexity or spice. Notes of sweet tobacco instead of creamy oyster in the 12.
Redbreast 12 Year
Single Pot Still — IrelandReviewed January 9, 2023Beautiful. My god. It's creamy, almost with a hint of umami like an oyster, but without the brine.
Writers' Tears Double Oak
Blended — IrelandReviewed January 9, 2023A cask strength of this would be interesting. This is already interesting. Tons of oak, to the point of domination, but it's not ruined.
Writers' Tears Cask Strength (2021 Release)
Blended — IrelandReviewed January 9, 2023Medicinal upfront, burns hot at the finish but not unpleasantly. There's a reason for a lack of age statement. Definitely spicier than the watery regular stuff.
Writers' Tears Copper Pot
Blended — IrelandReviewed January 9, 2023Perfectly alright, but watery and bland beside something good like Redbreast 12
Amaro — Emilia-Romagna, ItalyReviewed January 9, 2023Fine. A bit too sweet, a bit too bitter, a bit too herbal, but it works in a sweet, lite Fernet kind of way. Amaro Nonino is way better.
Dejado tequila blanco
Tequila Blanco — Jalisco, MexicoReviewed December 21, 2022Decently smooth, decently priced, nothing more
Roe & Co Blended Irish Whiskey
Blended — IrelandReviewed December 19, 2022I guess it's not awful. But it's muddy and mediocre. At this price point bourbon is a better buy.
