Nectar of the gods, over our nearly 2 years here at Nerdfit we’ve said that to only a select few spirits. Yet as our last review this scotch is trying to claim the title on its own right, a right it does not deserve. Yes folks booze reviews on Nerdfit is ending, and we do so by taking an expensive scotch that wanks hard, and tear it to shreds putting it rightly so in its place. (For Honest Booze Reviews readers this is when we stopped working via Nerdfit.)
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.
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)
I’m sure some of you may have noticed that last week we did not have a review, this is because unfortunately I was not able to cover for my co-presenters like I often do. I literally had nothing to go on. It was okay though because I made sure things were in place for this week. Except they decided to go to Pax East (which due to not being able to get a ticket and work I am unable to attend), and completely botch any way of getting things done right.
Afternoon kids, yes once again this week we’ve reviewed a scotch. Why? Because we’re adults and real adults drink scotch. Sadly though even faux adults wouldn’t typically drink this scotch, and while it’s suffering from being compared to the recent pleasure of Johnnie Walker Double Black, make no mistake this isn’t something I’d recommend.
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.
Ahh to review scotch again. Well plainly we’ve had quite a lot of whisky this past October, but while Single Barrel is nice – it’s still Jack Daniels, and I will always prefer my whisky coming from across the pond then in the depths of the American south. Unfortunately while we have a scotch here – a single malt as well, there is something left to desire. I never understood why some people would compare Glenlivet to Glenfiddich, because honestly the latter is merely average.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I am the man called Justice and this week the Booze Reviews Crew is bringing you a particularly special treat. Its been a long time coming, but today we bring you Chivas Regal 18 year blended scotch whiskey. Before you ask, yes this is a liquor that deserves to have its full name used. Now I am a lover of high grade scotches, and though I can’t claim to have tried as many as the Buffalo, I have sampled a fairly robust number of scotches. That being said, there are few blended scotches which have tried which rival the flavor of this one. Off the top of my head only Johnny Walker Blue Label is a scotch I’ve tried better than this one (though that really isn’t a fair example).
We here at the Buffalo Lounge love our Scotch, we’ve enjoyed Blue Label and hope to one day review it (future note: we did), and Black Label is something DJ_Lvl has bought now and again. So we though well, Gold Label is a bit pricey, is there a good middle ground here. (future note: turns out Double Black was what we wanted)
