Òrach Slie & Glenfarclas 15
Another half and half post, this time featuring a beer I got sent in return for writing some recommendations for Nottingham pubs on the Harviestoun Blog . Òrach Slie is the barrel-aged version of Harviestoun's 'Schiehallion' lager, the first Harviestoun bee...

Islay Ales & Bruichladdich
If you're going to go for a whisky and beer pairing what better than beer from the world's most renowned whisky island? Well as far as Islay's most famously distinctive offerings are concerned it doesn't really follow. Much as I love beer and whisky to acco...

Three Discontinued Balvenies
Since I've neglected Whisky Wednesday for a while I thought I'd hit back with a trio of official bottlings (not that you get many unofficial ones) from Balvenie , all of which are now discontinued. The 15 Single Barrel has a new incarnation as a Sherry cask...

Nottingham Pubs
The folks over at Harviestoun recently asked me to write a guest post for them about my five favourite pubs in Nottingham Now I’m sure there are all sorts of blog posts around about drinking in Nottingham. I suppose like most UK cities it has a rich brewing...

BrewDog 'IPA Is Dead' 2014
This year I was a bit quicker getting hold of  BrewDog's  'IPA Is Dead' series (if a bit slow turning my notes into a blog post!) For those of you who are unaware of it, and at the risk of re-hashing what I've already written about it, the idea is simple. O...

Spring Drinking
Well we've had a couple of false starts but slowly, surely, Summer is getting closer and closer, and if you're anything like me an evening's drinking habits change tack a little. Whilst I'm still drifting into cold evening fare (the other week I was drinkin...

Brewdog 'Russian Doll'
This was a pack of experimental beers from BrewDog . The idea is that the beers share the basics recipe but t he abv is ramped up as you go through the range, starting at 4%, going to 6, 8 then finishing on 10% with the barley wine. From their website : 'Th...

A Trio from The Glenlivet
It's a good thing to revisit some classic whiskies every now and again. With new and exciting editions coming out seemingly daily it's easy to forget what some of the big names that started it all have a lot to offer, it's just that they just might not shou...

Los Muertos Brewing Co. Pair
I'll admit to being drawn in by Los Muertos ' packaging here, I think those skulls revived the teenage metal fan a bit. Was I just suckered because of something that shares a thematic link to Entombed ? Well, maybe, but if that was the only case then I was ...

Gypsy Inc: Tipsy Gypsy & Pale Trail
A couple of beers I picked up from BrewDog when I put an order in a while back that really impressed me. From what I can see Gypsy Inc. are not so much a brewery as such but beers brewed by a collective of brewers. The project itself is headed up by Mikkell...

Old Malt Cask Auchentoshan 10
Here's a whisky that might well have seen better days. It's hard to tell from the photo (I couldn't get my camera or my phone to look at the bottle rather than the background) but the fill level is about half way up the gold part at the top of the level. It...

Bruichladdich 'Black Art' 1990
In the last decade or so (on and off) I've been selling whisky, Bruichladdich  have been probably the most frustrating distillery, with new editions seeming to arrive on shelves almost every time I've taken a couple of days off. However, from a whisky lover...
