As the 1L marker may indicate – this review is a little special. I was recently traveling through London (and apparently will return, so expect a new segment on London pubs to hit this site), and on the way home after some successful business I got myself some duty-free scotch. Of course with many options I couldn’t resist another entry from the Walker line.
I chose this scotch because I tend to buy myself a nice scotch at the close of a project. I choose this because it’s distinctive shape and look appealed to me. My purveyor of spirits however told me that this used to sell like hotcakes because of it’s usage on Breaking Bad.
So there I was, in a New Hampshire liquor store. I was stocking up on so many things (I love you Ezra Brooks), but sadly the store I was at was smaller, and had almost nothing for a scotch selection. Worse what was there were things I’d already had/reviewed. There was something that stood out, that I had not seen before.
Yes it’s more scotch. Come fight me if you have a problem with that. Anyway this week we discuss one of our more recent finds, and one that we love – because so far we’ve yet to find a 12 year (albeit blended) scotch for this price point that we can drink time and time again and still enjoy it.
Alright so continuing our diverse coverage here, time for more scotch. We go a little lower this time though with Dewar’s White Label a common staple in bars and mixers – which always never made sense to me.
What makes a man, is it the power in his hands? Is it his quest for glory? Well yes actually. Though to clarify glory is Scotch, and power? Well power is a Rusty Nail, and because this is the Buffalo Spirit Guide (And not something about tools and hammers) I am of course talking about the drink – The Rusty Nail.
A more noble beverage I have not yet tasted.
Too formal? I personally don’t think so. If nothing else when I first tried this scotch while dressed in a suit vest I was probably a bit under-dressed. Today on Booze Reviews ladies and gentlemen, I, Justice, will show you the end of a legacy. That’s right, we’ve finally finished the full spectrum of Johnnie Walker scotches with this very appropriate choice: Johnnie Walker Gold Label.
Hola! Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone! I bet you’re wondering why we’re not using this golden opportunity to review a tequila – to which I can only say an old Spanish proverb. “It is not one to review that one cannot remember.” Now I’m not sure what that means but it sounded profound enough to excuse away why we started this morning with some scotch. Justice had actually considered mixability with cereal, but then we couldn’t decide which cereal. (Hint: should have been CTC)
Hello ladies and gentlemen. Welcome to another Booze Review. This one is a good one. Yup.
Alright I will be honest: right now I am dreading writing this because I have not had alcohol in over two weeks because I am trying to get into shape and it does not help. I feel like a fraud. I feel I have disgraced the other members of our troupe by doing this but I need to think of my physical conditioning right now.
