Highlights

When I visited the @auchentoshan Distillery in March, Neil Matthew, the Visitor Centre Assistant Manager gave us one of the best tours I have ever witnessed. His vibe, knowledge and storytelling abilities were top notch. Then I came across this photo just 10 minutes ago. Shinji Fukuyo, Chief Blender of @suntorywhisky watching and listening to Neil very carefully as he was telling us about the different casks used to age Auchentoshan. Such a ‘no pressure at all’ moment for Neil, a great shot for me with two legends in it. #whisky #whiskey #viski #auchentoshan #suntory #beamsuntory #scotland #lowlands #distillery #dram #dream #travel #drinkingthedream

Sometimes, whisky tasting is all about getting lost in that moment in a glass.

A small bottle whisky shared in espresso cups with great people is just a perfect memory! Also, the whisky was freaking good. 18 year old Glenburgie which spent 5 years in a Sherry hogshead and bottles by @wmcadenheads #whisky #whiskey #viski #cadenheads #edinburgh #london #drinkingthedream #share #drink #Friends #whiskymonster #singlemalt #scotch #dram

I woke up with a hunger for the Pastrami sandwich @katzsdeli This reel features @glenmorayiain trying it for the first time. #foodie #katzdelicatessen #newyork #pastrami #les #lowereastside

I had a fascinating experience in San Francisco last weekend judging at @sfwspiritscomp In three days, I judged around 350 spirits, loving some, amazed by some and amused by some:) Thanks to the organizing team at @thetastingalliance , all my fellow judges and friends (some shown in photos) and most importantly, all the volunteers who made everything possible for us. I am honored to be a part of this year’s judging team and I have to say, all the winners of the year deserved their titles which will be announced in June! Hoping to be back in 2024! #whisky #spirits #whiskey #cognac #bourbon #rum #scotch #singlemalt #blended #judge #spiritjudge #sanfranciscoworldspiritscompetition #sfwsc

The moment of truth Best In Show - Whisky is… It was great to see how I tasted the winning whisky randomly in the last three days thanks to @scotchellis and I told to myself that “This whisky will be winning something”. It became to be the Best Whisky in @sfwspiritscomp with an outstanding support of the judges. Unfortunately we won’t know what it is until June, but it totally deserved the title. #whisky #whiskey #viski #winner #competition #bestwhisky #sf #sfwsc #worldspiritscompetition #scotch #bourbon #rye #japanese #drinkingthedream #judge

The best tasting I had in the last months was at @glengariochmalt last month. It was mot about the tasting room, which was above the malting floor, casual and heates with space heaters, nothing luxurious. It was about the SPIRIT and the PEOPLE. We tasted four different new make spirits from 2014 to 2022, a period when Glen Garioch played around with distillation techniques. We started with 2014 when indirect fire was used, then 2020 just before the refurbishment with lower mash size and longer fermentation period. 2021 sample showed us the impact of direct fire and 2022 brought in the distinct impact of floor malting. For a whisky nerd this waa an eye opening experience and thanks to Kwandele Mdluli and @pandapommeke for all the nerdy and happy information. 🥃 📸 @pretendlovers #whisky #whiskey #viski #malt #glengarioch #highland #inverurie #tasting #drinkingthedream #sip #taste #experience #travel #scotch #scotlans #distillery #rarefind #singlemalt

A Saturday teaser 🥃 42 days left.. #whisky #whiskey #viski #scotch #shadow #scotland #blend

Roaming Man Tennessee Straight Rye Whiskey Batch 10 -

This time I have Roaming Man Batch 10 Tennessee Rye Whiskey in my glass. My latest review on their whiskies was on Roaming Man Tennessee Straight Rye Whiskey Batch 9. The nose has intense toasted oak with cardamom, dusty malt, pleasant spearmint, grapefruit zest and cinnamon, Nose starts hot for a single second, then it develops into a fresh but dark one. Roaming Man Batch 10 was certainly not the wildest rye whiskey in its range, but it was a very well-balanced and delicious one!

VEGAFINA 1998 VF 50 Cigar Review

The baking spices and minerals continue to pull forward, but the profile is still every bit sweet and creamy with vanilla wafers. Strength is reaching towards medium plus and body finishes the same medium. I loved the sweet and creamy pastry-like vanilla wafers note. The VegaFina 1998 VF 50 is not a complex cigar, but one of those cigar experiences where it makes you nod your head a couple times and say, “man, that was good.

Yamazaki 18 Mizunara Cask 2017 Edition

Nothing better than sitting with friends on a Saturday afternoon and casually tasting a $6000 Japanese whisky, and then lighting some Cuban sticks sound heavenly right? 18 Mizunara Cask 2017 is the third in this range, Master Blender Shinji Fukuyo showcases the impact of Mizunara oak barrels, aged between 18 to 50 in this luxurious single malt. Mizunara oak is known for way more delicate flavors like sandalwood, aloe wood, coconut burst and subtle spice notes. Yamazaki 18 Mizunara Cask 2017 Edition is a good whisky showing qualities of Mizunara oak, that is all, at least for me.

Paul John Mithuna Indian Single Malt Whisky

Paul John Mithuna is matured in 1st fill American virgin oak and then finished in 1st I love how Paul John's Christmas Edition bottles are indicating their new bottles such as Paul John Oloroso Select Cask and Paul John PX Select Cask. Sultana grapes, stone fruits, oak spices develop into milk chai, cocoa, oak tannins and most interestingly white Pineau des Charentes. Aging the whisky primarily in American virgin oak brings out that crazy and strong character and the gentle ex-bourbon finish shows the boundaries to create a great balance.
