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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
