The third dram from the Master of Malt, Drinks by the Dram gift set is this week’s review for The Whisky Corner and comes from East Lothian. It’s Glenkinchie and their 12 Year Single Malt. A Lowlands whisky this distillery is believed to date back as far as 1825 when there was a distillery founded…

The Whisky Corner – Talisker 10 Year Single Malt

This week’s Whisky Corner is Talisker 10-year single malt, it was part of a gift set given to me for Christmas from my mom and dad contains 5 single malt whiskies. So, thanks for that. The Talisker first because it was a whisky that’s been on my list for a while.  Talisker distillery is an…

The Whisky Corner – Jura Journey

So it’s time for the first Whisky review of the new decade and we’re starting off with a very strong whisky. I reviewed my first Jura whisky in October/November of last year as I received their 10 Year as a gift and this too is another gift that I’ve received for Christmas. Coming in a…

The Whisky Corner – Glenfairn Speyside Single Malt

The final of the new Whisky’s I got for my birthday is Glenfairn Speyside Single Malt. It’s a whisky that’s exclusive to Tesco and is produced, according to research done over on Malt-Review.Com, most likely by the Whyte and Mackay Group. I was excited to try this one, it was very well presented in a…

The Whisky Corner: Aberfeldy 12 Year Old

It’s been a while since I last reviewed a Whisky on The Whisky Corner but as it was my birthday the other day I’ve been fortunate enough to receive several new bottles to try so you’ll be getting these over the coming weeks and we’re kicking things off with Aberfeldy 12 Year Old Single Malt.…

A Whisky Pouch Vending Manchine You Say?

So, yesterday I saw the news I think everyone’s been waiting for! There is now a whisky vending machine selling pouches of whisky! Admittedly it’s a bit off the manor all the way in London outside Napoleon Hotel but given the regularity Joe falls asleep on the train home and winds up in London we…

North Korean Whiskey is Coming!

North Korea have thrown their hat into the whiskey ring it seems but such is the secrecy that shrouds this country there’s little to be known about this whiskey other than it’s a magical whiskey that allegedly counteracts the negative effects of drinking. It’s even allegedly a drink that will actively combat the harm to…

The Whisky Corner: Supermarket Whisky – Tesco Special Reserve

Kicking off the Supermarket Whisky reviews is Tesco and it was a disappointing start straight off, I was hoping to find an own brand premium whisky of some description such as I know some of the other supermarkets do but unfortunately there wasn’t any such option. Although it wasn’t purely their white-label bottle it didn’t…

Joint Sessions: Proper Twelve Irish Whiskey

After Conor McGregor announced he’d be getting into the whiskey business an army of fans and followers immediately became projected sales, I read somewhere that by the second post off the Proper Twelve Instagram page there were 330,000 followers. The page only has 650,000 now so I’m not sure if the numbers are correct but…

How do Supermarket Whisky’s Compare?

So, as a relative novice to the game of whisky tasting I’ve steered clear of supermarket whisky because I didn’t particularly think it would be that good. I’ve had a few different whisky’s now and decided it’s time to give the supermarkets own whisky a try, after all it’s not always the price you should…

The Whisky Corner: Chivas Regal 12

It’s a return of the scotch for this week’s Whisky Corner review and in particular a blended whisky from Chivas Regal. Chivas Regal is distilled in Strathisla Distillery in Keith, Moray in the legendary region of Speyside. It is the oldest working distillery in the highlands tracing its roots back to 1786. Chivas Regal is…

The Whiskey Corner: Jameson Irish Whiskey

So tonight’s whiskey review is an Irish favourite, considering it’s potentially one of the most prevalent whiskey’s about this is actually my first sample of the dram of which I did buy just a small 50ml bottle of although I’d certainly go for a bigger one next time. Established in 1810 as The John Jameson…

The Whisky Corner: Haig Club Clubman

It’s been a couple of weeks since I last did a whisky review so I thought it’s about time I caught up and got a review on the table, I’ll be picking up the Proper Twelve in the coming weeks so keep a look out for that review but for this week I’m going to…

The Whisky Corner – Johnnie Walker Black Label

This week’s Whisky comes from Johnnie Walker and in particular their Black Label bottle. Johnnie Walker is one of the whisky’s I’m more familiar with having seen Red Label, Black Label and Blue Label bottles in the past as well as limited edition bottles such as the sherry cask finish my uncle picked up from…

The Whisky Corner: The Famous Grouse

This weeks addition to the Whisky Corner is the third in my Christmas Gift Set, The Famous Grouse. First distilled in 1806 it’s a blended whisky that most people would recognise, they’ve been the most popular whisky in since 1980 and second in the UK overall but this bottle is one that enjoys it’s peak…

The Whisky Corner – Bell’s Whisky

This week’s Whisky Corner is another lower end whisky, it’s also another one with sentimental value for me as it was my Granddad’s favourite whisky. I remember him telling me the story of how he came to drink Bell’s exclusively, my granddad had had quite the interesting life I could probably write stories left, right…

The Whisky Corner: Teacher’s Highland Cream

This weeks addition of The Whisky Corner is one with sentimental value to me although it’s not the best whisky I suppose sometimes that’s not the point though. Sometimes things are special because of what we associate with them and I think this is one of those drinks for me. Originating from Glasgow, Scotland Teacher’s…

The Whisky Corner: Famous Grouse – Smoky Black

As they say, another week another whisky and this time I’ve gone for one I received in a three pack gift set off the Mrs. I’ll be reviewing the other two over the coming weeks but I’ve started off with the Famous Grouse and their Smoky Black Whisky. I’m not usually one for the peated…

The Whiskey Corner: Bushmills Original

It’s another Irish Whiskey that’s on review in The Whiskey Corner this week and this time it’s one of my all time favourites, Bushmills Original. It’s a nice and easy Whiskey that’s readily available almost anywhere, certainly in most supermarkets and it’s literally been just over 12 months since I first had the pleasure of…

The Whiskey Corner – Peaky Blinder

Early in 2018 I launched The Whiskey Corner and just under 12 months later here’s my second whiskey review, rapid I know! Anyway the first review of the series is a Christmas gift that I received from my sister, its from Saddlers Brewery who have featured on the Peak of the Week series many times,…

Hogwash Blended Malt Scotch Whisky

So, at the start of the year I decided to introduce a section called The Whisky Corner which would see me bring you news and whisky reviews then haven’t gotten round to reviewing any. I managed to pick a bottle up this week and so the first of my Whisky reviews is Aldi’s Hogwash a…

The Whisky Lounge – Birmingham Whisky Festival

This November the Birmingham Council House will host The Whisky Lounge’s Birmingham Whisky Festival, not just that but it’s their 10 Year Anniversary as well which means there’s going to be an air of celebration as well. I admit, I’ve missed this before and it was only prior to the Facebook Data scandal that this…
