Johnnie Walker Black “Director’s Cut” Blade Runner Edition

by Blake Cortrighton September 12, 2018
I should preface this review by mentioning that in addition to being a whisky enthusiast, I’m a filmmaker with a love for great movies. Blade Runner 2049 was one of my favorite films of 2017, and regardless of the whisky itself (which I think is pretty good!), there’s some fun to sipping the same whisky […]

Johnnie Walker Green Label 15 Year

by Blake Cortrighton August 29, 2018
Johnnie Walker Green Label is the middle child of the Johnnie Walker line up.  It’s the truest introduction to the “premium” side of the range, and sits in that premium-yet-still-affordable $50 price category.  Left behind are the 40% ABV’s and screw top caps of Red and Black, in favor of a bulked up 43% ABV, […]

Diageo owns over two dozen malt and grain distilleries […]

Lagavulin Distiller’s Edition

by Robert Dianaon June 27, 2018
The great fictional “Parks and Rec” character Ron Swanson once mused, “all of my life I’ve avoided Europe, and its multitude of terribleness, but it turns out, much to my surprise, there is actually one place in Europe that is worth seeing.  These tiny islands off of the coast of Scotland, where God’s chosen elixirs are […]

Blade and Bow Review

by Robert Dianaon May 8, 2018
Blade and Bow is a relatively new bourbon in the American whiskey scene.  It was introduced by Diageo, a massive London-based spirits corporation, in 2014 in conjunction with the reopening of the legendary Stitzel-Weller distillery to the public.  There is perhaps no distillery more famous in bourbon lore than Stitzel-Weller, whose column stills used to […]
