master_of_malt_dbd.jpgThe good people at Master of Malt recently sent us drams of their Arran 12 Year Old Single Cask and the Glenfarclas 25. It didn't take much convincing to lasso Robin into nosing the liquids with me. The first thing we noted is that at 30ml, these quaint little bottles are clearly not intended for sharing - or even pouring less than its entire contents.

I was first introduced to the Balvenie Single Barrel 15yr at a tasting event a couple of years ago and wasn't overly impressed with it. However on a recent trip to North Carolina, I stumbled upon it again and decided to grab one for a more in-depth tasting experience. 

Wemyss Malts - 8 Year Old "Spice King"

| 0 Comments | 0 TrackBacks

 Wemyss Malts' 8 Year Old (known affectionately as the Spice King) is one the results of the LBCO's recent forays into providing new blended malt whiskies that aren't typically available in Ontario. Wemyss Malts is named after Wemyss Castle, which is home to David, 3rd Earl of Wemyss (whose signature appears on the bottle).

    This looks amazing, something my husband would love. His birth is coming up soon as well.

    Hi Sherry, I think you might be outta luck on this one. Only 9000 bottles of this delicious whisky were produced and I'd wager most - if not all - purveyors have been sold out for quite some time now. If you're looking to sample it, I'd recommend visiting your local whisky bar and checking their list of Canadian whisky offerings. Your only other option would be to try and track down someone willing to give up their bottle? I've got one 2oz sample tucked away and, sorry, I'm keeping it all to myself! :) Good luck! Let us know if you find a bottle!
