    Sherry vs. Sulphur: Aberlour A'bunadh, Craigellachie 23, and Famous Grouse 18

    Sherry vs. Sulphur: Aberlour A'bunadh, Craigellachie 23, and Famous Grouse 18

    In this episode, we test our palates in a head-to-head blind tasting of an ex-sherry whisky versus an ex-sherry with a touch of sulphur. To get our palates ready for some sherry, our sherry baseline for this tasting is none other than Aberlour A'Bunadh (Batch 57). Join us to see if we're able to correctly identify the sample with sulphur! We also discuss the quality-to-price ratio difference between the higher-end Craigellachie 23 and more budget-conscious Famous Grouse 18… and it may not turn out the way you expect!

    This episode's drams are:


    Aberlour A'Bunadh Batch 57 (60.7% ABV)
    Craigellachie 23 (46.0% ABV) (blind)
    Famous Grouse 18 (43.0% ABV) (blind)

    As always, dram in good health!

    Whisky Old Enough to Drink: Redbreast 21, Highland Park 28, and Ardbeg 21

    Whisky Old Enough to Drink: Redbreast 21, Highland Park 28, and Ardbeg 21

    As a famous movie star once quipped, "Age is just a number. It's totally irrelevant unless of course, you happen to be a bottle of [whisky]." We couldn't agree more! Age statements on whisky are more relevant than ever, especially as distilleries continue to increase the number of non-age stated (NAS) releases. But how does age correlate with quality, taste, and value? Join us as we tackle this topic from all angles, accompanied by a trio of drams old enough to drink!

    This episode's drams are:


    Redbreast 21 (46.0% abv)
    Cadenhead's Highland Park 28 (48.8% abv)
    Ardbeg 21 (46.0% abv)

    As always, dram in good health!

    Interview & Tasting with The Whisk(e)y Library - Part 1

    The Whisky Snobs of Lower Moco conducted a two-part socially-distanced super-fun discussion with our friends Brian Thompson and Tim Moll of The Whisk(e)y Library, a Washington DC-area company dedicated to the education and enjoyment of our favorite spirit!

    In addition to a great discussion of The Whisk(e)y Library’s history and mission, we discussed the vibrancy of the DC-area whisk(e)y scene, favorite spirits, and more! We also arranged a virtual tasting of two double sets of special releases that The Whisk(e)y Library has done with two local distilleries.

    The drams we poured for Part 1 are:

    The Whisk(e)y Library Anthology - One Eight Distilling


    Volume 1, Chapter 1 (61.8% ABV)
    Volume 1, Chapter 2 (60.6% ABV)

    Both of these drams are made from the same Straight Rye Whisky distillate (60% rye, 35% Hickory King corn, 5% malted barley), aged over 2 years in 25-gallon oak barrels with No. 4 char; uncut and unfiltered.

    Don’t forget to listen to Part 2 of this interview for the second half of this tasting with special pours from Lyon Distillery.
